We have stayed here many times in a tent, popup and our travel trailer. We have pretty much been in any site offered including primitive tent camping. The sites are shady, sometimes mosquitoes are a problem but the last several times we have stayed they really haven't been bad and I am someone who always gets bit. Bring mosquito repellant...

It had been a few years since we have visited the campground. Last couple of times were not that good because of the loud partiers. This time it was so peaceful. The rules must be enforced now. Had a nice wide site although most sites are very close together. Do have a problem with reservations. You now have to call,...

Our first time at Jekyll Island Campground. Very quiet and relaxing place to camp. Nice shady campsites. Office staff were very friendly and helpful. A good location on the island. Near the fishing pier and Driftwood beach. Free wifi which we had no problems with and about 70 cable channels!! Will definitely go back but hopefully for a longer stay...

The campground staff were very nice, spaces were big and it was nice to have 2 sets of restrooms/showers on site. Lots of shade and cool little bird sanctuary. Within walking distance to Driftwood Beach and if you have bikes, great location to explore the island from. Red ant hills were a problem in our site, but felt we paid...

So my family and I booked a camping trip at Jekyll Island, being we are really into the beach thing in all, we were really excited about the trip. The camp ground was average, meaning nothing spectacular. The campground was really tight, and if you are pulling in there with a large camper, I hope your really good at backing...

Overall experience was good. All sites are very shady with Live Oaks with Spanish Moss hanging. The camping fees are reasonable as well as LP gas refills, store supplies, etc. The campground is very close to a great beach (Driftwood Beach) which was never crowed. There are bike paths everywhere on the island. You'll never run out of biking or...

Excellent campground. The lots are large and well shaded. There is a beautiful little bird sanctuary with benches. You can sit and watch the birds and squirells while you drink your cofee. The staff are very courteous. I would love to stay there again.

Very nice, quiet, clean campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. We camped in a tent on a power/water site. The sites are bigger than other campgrounds I have been in so we were able to spread out and not feel cramped. There are lots of bugs but expected that from other reviews and brought along the bug spray. Even...

Very nice clean campground. Washer and Dryers Small store The only thing I would change about this place is to put in a swimming pool and pave the roads. Be see to see the Bird sanctuary at the back of the campground. Negative: Too dusty Can bike ride or walk from here to the pier across the road. Fishing from...

This was our first stay on this campground. It is peaceful and beautiful. The sites are really close together, but even so it seemed quiet. We stayed in H16 and it was more private than most. The Campground host was very nice. The shower facilities were clean. I highly advise you to stop somewhere off the island and get groceries...
