“Liked it very much!”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

I read these reviews before I went and felt like almost every single bad one was proven wrong. The customer service we received could not have been more pleasant or flexible. They changed the dates AND camping site with no problem with not even 24 hours notice. Also they were super friendly and informative. Sometimes cranky customers create cranky service, either in their heads or otherwise. The squirrels and raccoons (yes we saw one) are a little more bold than in your backyard, but if you keep your food secured you shouldn't have a problem. We stayed there in a tent for 3 days and didn't have any problems with noise or neighbors. I have to say that it was very quite after sunset, with only an occasional car driving through the camp at night. The bathrooms were clean and dry, the showers had a lot of privacy, lots of pressure, and lots of hot water!! (5 stars there!)

I had a hard time finding a site that did NOT have water/electricity hook up. The sites were reasonable in size, and completely shaded by live oaks. So much so that there is no grass. The trash receptacles were never full, the bathrooms maintained frequently.

While on the island we particularly enjoyed the waterpark, the sea turtle center, the shops across from the sea turtle center, the dolphin tour, and the horseback trail ride. Fins was our favorite restaurant. All in all, I REALLY enjoyed it and would love to go again.

Room Tip: Book in advance!

Campground is rustic to be nice. Dirt sites, leaves, hungry tame squirrels, mud, potholes. Many tents, fifth wheels, trailers. No sat reception due to trees. Low hanging wires, trees on the way up. Great spot for wilderness training. If you want woodsey, camping this is your spot.

Jekyll Island is a great island to visit especially if you love nature and history. Great place to ride a bike as well. We were not impressed with the campground. Could use a bit of cleaning up, and the staff could use a few lessons in customer service. Not once did anyone smile or make us feel welcome. After driving many miles to reach our destination it would be nice if we were made to feel welcome. Also, make sure you purchase groceries,gas, etc before arriving. Grocery prices were very high with poor selection on the island and the gas station was not open.

Room Tip: Note: It costs $5 to enter the island.

The campground was beautiful. How many campgrounds these days, especially near a beach have any privacy much less canopied by beautiful trees dangling with spanish moss. The roads within the campground are not paved and the dust is a bit of an issue but the surroundings made up for that minor fault. The bathrooms are older in design and depending on the campers in front of you may be dirty or clean. A lot of claims regarding cleanliness of the bathrooms depends on us the campers. Mosquitoes were there, it's a wet area, bug spray worked, why would someone expect differently. The campground folks were very nice, we changed our reservation within a month of travel and they made special efforts to fit us and our friends in and so that our campsites would be close. Loved the campground, loved Jekyll Island! Our favorite meal was the Driftwood Beach Restaurant - shrimp and grits were incredible. We also liked Fins and a restaurant in Darien, B&J's. We spend a couple of days hanging out in the water park and that was fun too. Jekyll Island is not Myrtle Beach, think about what you want in a vacation, we loved Jekyll Island. We loved biking, eating boiled peanuts, the friendly people, riding our golf cart all over the island, taking lots of pictures, and walking our dogs in the woods behind the campground. We were a group of 6 including 4 teenage girls and traveling with a group of 4 including 2 teenage girls. We camp in a 40 ft coach and our friends had a pop up camper.

Room Tip: We liked the sites in the back, remote and quite

Everything was great except the party the raccoons held for us every night!
