Well, we have mixed reviews on this campground. First of all, it’s VERY ISOLATED! You have to drive several miles through a tropical jungle on a dirt road to reach this state park! There are only 28 camp sites, each one on a sandy dirt foundation but the sites are very private as you are surrounded by dense foliage. The sites are spacious and mostly level – ours of course, wasn’t, so we were slightly slanted – this was minimally noticeable until I made a fresh cream peach pie and it presented slightly fuller on one side! It still tasted good!
There is a nice bathroom/shower house which Howie reported as very nice. The facilities provided only 30 amp (we need 50 to run both air conditioners/oven/lights/etc) but we managed adequately. There also was no sewer at the sites but there was a dump station available.
That was it for amenities – no pool, no playground, no beach……no “anything” for miles around us except for the jungle which was home to armadillos, snakes, bear and cougar! Oh, did I mention the ticks??!! There were signs everywhere warning of the dense tick population!! Needless to say, we kept the dogs out of the bushes!
We toured through Anastasia State Park Campground which is closer to St. Augustine. It seemed like a very nice park but it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get in there. Faver-Dykes state park campground is an OK place to stay if passing through for a night or two, but I don’t think we’ll be back.
