Just returned from our first tent camping experience. I am giving this review from a tent campers perspective. We have gone to the beach at jetty many times, and it is my favorite beach on the atlantic side. As close as you can get in the central part of florida to a nice, Gulf beach experience. Dont get me wrong, i know what to expect at the ocean. things are rusty, bathrooms are damp, etc. I just think the bath facilities were deplorable! We, of course had to use the bath house the duration of our stay, and first-of the three showers, one was broken-one was only dripping, and one worked, although it was mildewy and very slippery, with a small slope near the drain that my daughter fell on. The sink stands in the main bathroom area were broken and falling apart, and it was never cleaned during our stay. My husband said the mens room smelled like sewer the whole time as well . Were just thinking for the 40 bucks a night, they could put a little bit of money back into the park. The camp set ups seemed to be awkward, some people had nice sized lots, and some had narrow spaces. Our electric was on the other side of the pad from our space, so we had to have a long extension cord across to the tent. The best shady spots are certainly the "primitive" spots, but-no electric was a deal breaker for me. So, we got one along the road (some road noise). Most campers were quiet and polite, but there was a big rowdy group of young people that were making noise way past 11. I think if you stayed here in an rv, your experience would be much different-no nasty bathrooms to deal with, and privacy inside. I might stay here again, if i didnt tent camp!
FOr the price we paid, i feel like it was worth it, although it was still to far to walk to the ocean, from our space (15), with all of our beach stuff. Its probably half a mile walk from the back of the campground to the beach area. when its hot, you wouldnt want to walk that far with gear and kids.
FYI, there is no wifi available, even at a price-so if that is important to you, you wont find it here-i couldnt pick up any signals.
