“Loved the Island!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

This was only our 3rd campground since we bought our own RV (our parents had campers). We were greeted by great staff-made to feel welcome and approachable if we had problems. Since we were new with a 30' 5th wheel, they made sure we could pull through. We were close to the restroom and I used the shower daily and Bill only as we were leaving and after we were hooked up to leave. They were not that well maintained and we did send a note to the manager. We never had much problem with Mosquitos but we sprayed anyway. We loved the history of the island, going on the trolly your and self guided walking tour. We took long walks on the very nice beaches. We plan to return!

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Great location, Super Hosts, Very scenic area! Jekyll Island Campground is an older campground but well kept, cable, wifi, sewer hook-ups all worked well. The campground is very scenic with large Live Oaks canopy cover total area. The Bath House and Laundry area were old but clean and worked well. The Store could be better stocked with RV accessories. Clam Creek Fishing Pier and Driftwood Beach are across the road from the entrance, Historic District and Sea Turtle Center down the road a few Miles. Rent a bike at the campground and visit all. enjoy

We loved Jekyll Island Campground. Just across the road was the entrance to Clam Creek fishing Pier and picnic area. It was lovely to walk at night under the live oaks with the Spanish moss creating an enchanted tunnel. Crab soup, from any restaurant on the island was to die for. The bathrooms at the back of the campground were much nicer than those at the front. We went the end of Oct. mild temps and no bugs. Raccoons got in our cooler and stole our bacon ( Who Stole the Bacon?), we put it in our trunk after that.

This is the only campground on Jekyll Island. It is an old campground, a bit run down and very rustic but we love it here. The sites are all very shady with huge oak trees and most are fairly level, with full hook ups including cable and sewer. The wifi worked very well at our site, there were many connections to choose from depending on where you are in the campground. The laundry room was small but the machines worked and didn't cost too much. The roads are all dirt as well as the sites but that's what we like. We did not use the bath house but we looked in them and they were clean and appeared to be in good working order. The entire Island is golf-cart friendly and we drove ours everywhere we needed to go, just make sure they meet the specifications or you might get a ticket from the Georgia State Troopers that patrol the island. We stayed here in September and there were a few bugs but nothing that a little repellent couldn't handle. Our week here was great and we didn't want to leave and we will certainly go back again.

We have been camping here for a month or more in the fall of each of the last three years. We come from northern Wisconsin, and look forward to our time here to give us a bit more summer. It is a long way, but it is well worth it.

The facilities of the campground are what you would expect at a campground. There are trees, lots of them, giving us shade and helping with privacy. No, the road and the parking spaces are not paved--but this is one of the things we love. It is not just a parking lot!

The staff is warm and welcoming.
Between campers, they are meticulous in raking and preparing the site for the next campers. When you register upon arrival they are extremely helpful and make sure that you get set up and have no problems.
Also, multiple times each day you will see staff riding through the campground in their golf carts making sure that all is well.

This wonderful campground and the beauties and activities of Jekyll are a winning combination. Bring your bikes and bike some of the 20+ miles of bike paths. You have an advantage of being able to ride your bike through the beautifully maintained historic district where the cars are limited. Visit any of the many beaches each with a personality of its own. You will also realize that the whole island is different than most other island destinations. There are no high rises! No tall hotels and no traffic jams! The beaches often are fairly deserted.

We keep asking others about alternative places, but no one can come up with suggestions that could beat what we have found here. We'll be coming back.

It's not like you have a choice of several to pick from, it is the only campground on the island. So, we have a supply and demand situation in the campground's favor. Having said that, we have stayed here over five times and usually for a week at a time in our very comfortable mosquito free RV. The campground can be a mess if it rains. Your awning will be a mess from the leaves if it rains and the cleanup not fun. So, we leave the awning in, don't sit outside if the bugs wish to share our leisure, and we purchase a cheap carpet at Walmart that we will discard after out visit regardless of the weather. We spray all exterior lines and hoses with WD-40 to keep the ants out.
Then we enjoy the island. It is great for safe biking on the roads and the beach. We like to golf and there are four courses to choose form. We like to enjoy brunch at the Hotel and dinners at the various restaurants. We like to visit the village shops and take pictures all over the island. Then one day we head for St Simon to see how the 15 are doing. Overall, be prepared and make every day an opportunity to enjoy a very special place.

We camp here several times a year and absolutely love it. We have camped in a camper and tent and the atmosphere is great. The staff is very personable and friendly. One of our favorite spots. The bath houses are usually clean, no major issues, don't have an issue with the pets. The only real problem I have there is the mosquitoes. Make sure you bug spray before you step out of your camper or tent.
