Pros: Wow - what a great location!! You can't get any closer to the water than this place without camping on a boat, you can actually anchor your boat right off the shore of your campground. Fishing galore, several beaches, great trails for walking and biking, canoe/kayak rentals, nice shop, all very well maintained, super nice park rangers. Cons: who brings their own fire ring? no campfires without one. REALLY tight roads and low branches in and out. We have 36' trailer and it took some patient maneuvering to get parked and more to get out, but plenty of room once we were set up. The strict no booze rule was kind of ridiculous.
This is going to sound more negative than I intend. We stayed here last year and it looks like there's been some investment in the property. It's nice park. That said, the Wi-Fi is terrible unless you're just looking for email and a quick check of the news. Once you get logged in you're good for a few minutes, but if you're looking for any kind "usage" like youtube or even downloading pictures on FB, you're in for some really slow internet. The pad was paved and pretty level. All the hook ups are in good working order. The staff is nice, but they know the park will be full and have that kind of take it or leave it attitude. A little cramped. St Augustine is the true star - a great place. We'll almost certainly come back to this location. It's really close to both the old town and the beach.
What a super nice place to stay. We tried, unsuccessfully, to get a spot on the Disney park but we didn't plan well and they were booked up. What we found at this KOA is exactly where we'll stay from now on. Super nice people, really clean and well maintained and pretty darn close to the parks (a little far from Universal) at a great price. The previous reviewer was correct, it is pretty close to Waffle House, but that just makes it easier to grab some "smothered, covered and capped" all that easier in the morning. We will Absolutely recommend this place. Spring for the upgraded spots, we took an economy slot and it was nice but a little small.
It's hard to have a bad time in St. Augustine. This park is typical of all he KOAs we've stayed at. The pads were a little cramped but were paved, level pretty well maintained. The staff was incredibly nice, maybe too nice. We stayed here on a crowded weekend and the place was completely booked. When we arrived we were assigned our spot and at checkout time the previous customer was still there and in no hurry to leave. We waited about 45 minutes for them to leave and they didn't really hurry until I said something to them - I kept waiting for the staff to do so, but they didn't seem to care that I was parked in waiting. Overall a great trip, and a nice park - it could have been better if the staff had been more attentive to their checkout times.
Nice park near the caverns and the town of Carlsbad. The staff was great and the kids absolutely loved the clean, indoor pool. The lot was plenty big. Lots of gravel, not too much shade or grass. Wi-Fi signal was good, cable was an "extra." We'd stay here again.
This was a great place. We stayed there for 3 nights during the central Texas Food and Wine Fest and found the place to be very well kept and the staff extremely nice and helpful. The location was just right, not in the middle of town but close enough that we could see Fredericksburg and enjoy the area without being in the car for long. The cable TV signal was weak at best but we're not big TV watchers.
