2nd Camping Trip was a Success

My family rented 2 sites next to each other for pop up camping! It was great! We walked one of the trails and we drove up to the docks to check them out. Stayed for the weekend and enjoyed the trip. The rangers were happy to answer any questions and kept the park looking great! Would def go back!

Travel trailer camping was nice with private sites with wooded areas between you and your neighbor. Beautiful old Florida marsh area on the Pellicer Creek. I wish the park had more hiking and biking trails, (the park has plenty of acres to make more trails). Park staff was very nice. We were going to rent a canoe, but it was... More

We have gone canoeing here and it was a lot of fun. The fishing of the docks is always fun as well. You can rent canoes from the park as well as life jackets.

We rented two canoes from Faver-Dykes State Park, we had four adults and three young children in our group. The canoe rental rate is $5 per hour. If you go for longer than 5 hours the price you pay is only $25.00. The rental includes Life jackets, they have infant to adult sizes. It also includes Seat Cushions and 2... More

This was nicer than I expected after reading some of the reviews. The location is perfect, so much to do in the nearby area. Washington Oaks and Matanzas within minutes. And of course St Augustine. Most of the sites shady and fairly large. Deer and armadillo around in the evening. I would try to stay here in cooler months in... More

Quite and kind of buggy but away from the Florida crowds. Not suited for large motor homes but for rest just fine. Close to St Augustine.

While on a recent vacation we stopped at this park for about 6 days. We enjoyed the peacefulness- the large, private, well kept sites, - smaller campground setting. No pool, or mini golf, or big fancy lodge here. Just dirt roads with large sites and quiet neighbors. There are only 20 sites so u need to call Reserve America for... More

Outstanding state park campground tucked away in the forest 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of St Augustine and tourist Nirvana. Quiet and serene with trails and a small river for fishing and rental canoes this idyllic spot has 30 sites with water and electricity. The two Rangers, young and pleasant Jodie and the campground hosts seem truly proud... More

This is a very secluded campground. Roads are all dirt. Quite well kept state park. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. No swimming allowed at this park. But plenty of gushing, bird watching and canoe rentals available. You can buy firewood from the park rangers as they drive around. Four very nice concreate areas for handicap camping.
