Jekyll Island GA Camping

Has anyone had any experience staying at Jekyll Island GA Campground. Am concerned about no grass or pavement, too many trees, hard to maneuver into sites, bugs, and lack of activity. Any comments?

No bugs this time of year. Some of the best Bass and Trout fishing in U.S. just one mile up the road from the campground. Very quiet and clean. Yep, plenty of trees....it's a state park. Eleven miles of beach, plenty of bike/hike trails and plenty of wildlife. St. Simons Island just across the sound to the north and Cumberland Island across the St. Andrews Sound to the south.

We drove in there to check it out while staying in Costal Georgia RV Resort there in Brunswick. As you stated: no pavement mostly dirt low trees, and lots of them trees, I found it hard to maneuver my F-250 through there much less a rig. There is lack of activity with the exception of fishing and biking. Your also going to have to pay to get on the Island.
Our take on it was not our kind of place..

Very rustic, cramped, leafy/sandy...can be very buggy during non winter months...didn't appeal to us but they are always packed with campers

The bugs will eat you alive during non-winter months. They are awful!

Going to any wooded CG in the south that is near marshland and rivers and not expecting bugs is like going to Maine in January and not expecting snow. One comes with the other. Any bug repellent, be it spray or wipe on, will work. After 50+ years here, it's no big deal once you learn to deal with it.

On Our List

Jekyll is on our list for this year's possible trips. It is more appealing to me than the normal parking lot type RV parks. Of course, I'm not pulling a mega TT.

Go every year. We enjoy rustic campgrounds. Growing up on the East Coast we pretty much know when to camp to avoid an abundance of insects, and Georgia is one of the more obvious states for that!

Not a single problem maneuvering a Yukon XL 2500 and 35' from coupler to bumper spare. Maybe not the campground for a family with kids looking for more of the camp-resort atmosphere versus communing with nature.
