Tight And Crowded
This is a beautiful island, beaches are fabulous: we rode 18.8 miles on our bicycles, circling the entire island, historic sites and lots to see but the campground is incredibly crowded and cramped. We were in site E12. There were plenty of vacant sites and I asked if we could move, but was denied. We were in a 20’ TT and the vacant sites were saved for Big Rigs. We stepped out of our Pod to have the next site’s sewer right there.....we were surrounded by 5 other RVs. We could not move back far enough to connect to our sewer; put out our awning or set up our pop up screen tent. The ashes from the campfires are spread around the sites rather than hauled away so it gets on the soles of your shoes and dog paws tracking it everywhere.
Halloween the electricity went out which included all of the north end of the island. In three years RVing, this is one of the few places I would not return. Try to find a different campground and visit the island.

3I didn't read all the reviews on but I will say if you're coming to this beautiful but full of trees campground you need to bring somebody with you to watch and warn you not to hit or back into any tree. Most campground staff will watch or help you get in your spot, not here, and when I asked why they were rood. Excuse for not even offering to watch, we are not liable. Every other campground I have been to if they have staffing to show you to the spot you're camping at least ask if you wanted help or let you know they're leaving you at that point of time. otherwise nice place.

We really like this campground it is a little tight but not a problem because it is very well kept and very quiet. Would definitely recommend this campground.

What a great campground. Being from the Midwest, the shaded oak trees with the Spanish moss made for a great setting. I agree the sites may be a bit tight...the atmosphere was worth it. Staff was helpful and escorted you to your site. You are close enough to Driftwood Beach to walk there. We rented bikes and travelled the island. We have 2 dogs and had so many places to walk them. And this time of the year they can go on the beach which is a plus.

Very nice location, beautiful moss covered Live Oaks. Staff is friendly and helpful. D7 is small, but perfect for our small RV. Amenities are good, bath houses are a bit dated but functional and clean.

Great Wooded Campground
Great wooded campground on the north end of the island. Right across from the clam creek pier. Sites are average however they are mostly wooded.

The Spanish moss hanging on the large oak trees makes the campground beautiful. It is convenient to the beach, Jekyll Island Beach Club, and driftwood beach. There is a mix of large sites and small sites. Several pull through sites. Be sure to book early as the larger 50 amp sites book up early.
The bath houses are clean; however, a little dated. We had a good internet signal but it was a little slow. The staff was super nice and helpful. They escorted you to your site when checking in and if you needed anything, they were there for you.
We loved the campground. The only real problem are the mosquitoes. We were there at the end of July and the mosquitoes were awful. If you did not spray bug repellent on, you would have several of them on you at any given time. They would even bite through a thin shirt. This is probably caused by all of the recent rain storms.
As for as restaurants, we recommend Tortuga Jacks. Great food, good prices and live entertainment.

Beautiful island! Lots to see and do outdoors.
Campground is centrally located to everything on the island historic sites, museums, shopping, general store. All amenities were perfect. Only complaint would be very large potholes. Needs some work on the roads. Mosquitoes were pretty bad.

Jekyll Island is beautiful and worth visiting. Note we were there in October so bugs weren’t too bad. Also note it is a popular place to stay for Georgia/Florida football fans so if you want to go on their weekend games, you’ll need a reservation. Sites aren’t very private when campground is full. Decent facilities.

Here Is The Scoop
I have been coming here for 5 years for three month stay, June thought august. If you don't like a crowded park, don't come June and july, as the kids are out of school and pre teens as thick as flees. There is not ant long term campers here. Camp host can stay only 6 months.
The sites are not cookie cutter sites. But 90% are bigger then most campgrounds. The issue is all the mossy oak trees. It could be difficult to get into your site. Be patient, take your time and GOAL (get out and look ) and you will be ok.
All the camp host are great. They will help you with any problems you have. Even the ones that doesn't concern the Campground. The hole campground is pinestraw. Sometimes the bugs are bad sometimes they aren't. The mosquitoe truck comes several times a month. The cable is reliable as is WiFi. They hook up always worked for me.
There isn't anywhere that you can't find a bike path on the Island. If you can drive there you can bike there.

The campground can be wet during rainy weather. Many launch do not drain well, hence the earlier comments about mosquitoes be wet during rainy weather. Many lots do not drain well, hence the earlier comments about mosquitoes..

MOSQUITOES X Mosquitoes + MOSQUITOES
Nice campgrounds, but hard to enjoy because of the constant, never ending mosquito attacks. Nothing seemed to work- candles, sprays, battery-operated personal repellents-NOTHING. Otherwise, nice park - if you stay inside your RV.

Very nice walking around area. Close to Driftwood Beach, relaxing walk and bike ride. Friendly host. Parking is on dirt, it was muddy because it was raining
