The day started off very nice. Besides the fact that the Lady at the register was smoking a cigarette inside the store while talking to a customer, we received our boat rental and instructions on how to use the boat quickly and kindly. They even filled up an ice chest for us in case we caught any fish. As we... More

We only had one short night here and as we arrived well after dark, we didn't really get much chance to experience what looked like a delightful spot. We were riding motorbikes from Orlando to LA and this was our first stop off after a long and tiring ride out of Orlando. Our room was clean and comfortable and excellent... More

If you grew up and fished anywhere along the Gulf Coast in the 50's and 60's before condos and similar development, you'll really enjoy this bit of yesterday. The Fish Camp is authentic "old Florida" and, as noted in other reviews, the staff is friendly and laid-back. Plan to bring your own vittles (microwave cooking only) or visit Savannah's or... More

Nothing fancy here... simple, plan room. We called and asked for a non-smoking room I was told we had room 102. They did not ask for a credit card. When we arrived about 9pm I went to the office and rang the bell. I was told that the light was on, door unlocked and the key in the room... we... More

We had eaten at a local Bar/grille called Ousts Too and the waitress suggested we stay here since we had no plans for this night. We were pleasantly surprised! It was right on the Saint Marks river. The area surrounding the Fish camp was beautiful. Yu could rent a boat and everything you needed if you wanted to fish. You... More

Alot of folks store their boats here, but there are also rentals available. Fresh bait shrimp is availabe but you have to be there at just... More

Our children sing and play gospel bluegrass music, so they were invited to a church near St. Marks. We decided to come a few days early and leave a few days late in order to enjoy an early Thanksgiving getaway. This being our first experience at Shell Island revealed that it was the perfect place for our large family. Of... More

While visiting the St. Mark's NWR and Wakulla Springs State Park, we found this little gem of old Florida. We stayed a couple nights in a "Park Model" which was clean and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant. The Shell Island Fish Camp is rather an electic combination of old motel rooms and more modern park models. Not sure about... More
