Husband and I would like to plan a trip to St. Augustine, FL. Looking for recommendations on campgrounds - and also ones to stay away from. Does not have to be on the beach.

We stopped in St. Augustine two years ago for three nights. We stayed at the K.O.A., it was all right. We had been to st. Augustine before. But this time, we noticed that where were a lot of homeless people sleeping along the water front. Could not walk along the water front at night, without them begging for money. We felt unsafe at night walking the city. Hopefully the city government has chased them out by now.

Let me say this about is just off the I-95 and located very close to outlet shopping and CW. However it has no pool and I think it looks a lot like a parking lot. There is also Bryan Mawr which is right on the beach..but is $$ and mostly perminate housing anymore. Then there is Faver-Dykes State Park which is very isolated and along way back in the woods and not close to anything. Then you have Indian Forest and I have only driven by it but does notlook inviting. Next is North Beach that is across the street from the ocean and backs to the river, nice place with plants between the sites so some privacy but again $$. There is Anastasia State Park which is very hard to get a reservation for but the sites are also pretty close together and all dirt or sand. It is also a long walk to the beach from the campground. Ocean Grove RV Resort is not really a resort but very nice, backs to a creek and is within walking distace to the beach, is one of my choices when going there and not $$$. Pepper Tree Luxury RV Resort is a TRAILER PARK and only has a couple of RV sites. St Augustine Beach KOA is $$$ and not like most KOAs it has no pool and very tight sites but is with in walking distance to the beach. And finally...Pacetti's Marina, Campground and Fishing Resort is NOT a RESORT and is not really in St Augustine and is a fishing camp that is now closed and the new owner I hear is working at improving it but that will take some $$$ and time. My recommendation would be Ocean Grove RV Resort if your going to stay a little while but if just a day and it is not pool weather then Stagecoach would work. Have fun it is a great tourist town.

Anastasia State Park is right there at the inlet. Beach access within walking distance and the old section of the town is only about 2-3 miles away. We stayed there in December and enjoyed it. You need to make reservations in advance as it tends to fill up fast.

It might be too far south, but we always enjoyed Beverly Beach.

While you are there don't miss the best fish on the island!
O'Steen's Restaurant, 205 Anastasia Boulevard St. Augustine, FL 32080 (904) 829-6974
Very popular! Go early or expect an hour wait. You can browse the
antique shop next door while you wait. They call names over the PA so you
know when it's your turn.

We normally stay at Pellicer Creek Campground - It is locally owned and Jerry ( the owner ) is great. His Web site in on the internet.

Just left O'Steen's. Excellent! And Stagecoach is a good campground. Good space between units, nice areas to walk dogs. I would recommend it as well.
