We camp in a "Tear Drop” style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area
Most recent stay was 05-24-17 thru 05-25-17 - I'm "late" in posting my review. We did get close to the restroom/showers as requested; they were a little dated but clean and tidy and ok - checkout my photos. Wish they had paper towels for use to clean up area around the sinks - very messy and no shelves or hooks nearby to hang towels or your toiletry stuff. Showers had floor mats when you dried off; a plus so you didn't have to stand on wet floor; also had a bench, hooks for your towels and clothes, so overall good.
Not impressed with our site #3 maybe cuz we were in the "outdated" section of the grounds. The grounds were in need of cosmetic fix up. It rained and our site had no gravel to absorb water. Instead the covering was a white crushed seashell type mixture that stuck to the bottom of your shoes and you constantly dragged it in the RV; even had a camper mat outside but it didn't help much; terrible old picnic table. It just wasn’t a pleasing atmosphere albeit the site was spacious and wide. I would still not return but find an alternative next time or ask about the newer renovated section of the park.
Good Sam needs to reevaluate this place
Your typical campground. Gravel roads, dated facilities, the dude in the office had a personality similar to a dead pine tree. It's no wonder no one was there.
2 Nights Stay
Ok not to sound harsh here, but clearly my rating scale and the other ones who reviewed this campground are not in line. I can in no way find that this place is a 4, let alone a 5. It barely makes the 3 scale for me. It's not that anything was terribly wrong, it's just that there wasn't anything terribly right either. Did it serve its purpose? Yes. But did it wow me? No. And that makes it a 3. Upon arrival, I tried to make a joke with the host because there was a sign posted that said "no tents". I pointed to our rig and said,"we have our 'tent' right there. Apparently, I am not funny... Lol... you may agree. While I did receive a campground map, at no time was it explained to me where things are located such as dumpsters, etc (all things 4 and 5 stars do from my experience). The campground was maybe a third full. And I sleep thru trains, but the highway noise was noticeable. It wasn't so much the car noise as it was that all of a sudden a car would streak by with extremely loud music blaring. The facilities seemed adequate for laundry. I did not check out the bath facility. There was no cable although we could get maybe 8 channels with our antennae. Wifi was open but was faster routing thru my hotspot. Sites were level and spacious. However, the soil was clumpy dirt which was worse than sand. And the rate was about $40 with taxes and includes a Good Sam discount. Could I stay here again? Yes. Will I stay here again? Probably not, as I may explore one closer to the beach.
Central to nearly everything, and easy access. Great showers & restrooms, wifi, pull through level sites, and a very friendly staff!
Indian Forest Campground
Wooded campground, generally large sites, many are pull through, can accommodate a long rig with the trailer, I pulled in with a 65 foot rig (40 foot motorhome and trailer) and did not have to unhook the trailer. Sandy soil, water sewer and electric hookups. Very friendly and accommodating host. The campground is close to a main road with some noise.
Level sites, not big but plenty of room to open slides and leave the tow dolly hooked up. Restrooms/showers are clean. Wifi is ok. Lots of trees. We stayed a week for $225.
Convenient to St. Augustine
Not a bad campsite for short stays. We stayed three nights and my only complaints are the noise from the street, poor wifi, and too much shade. Personally I think more trees along the perimeter would be great to block the noise and view of the street, but that's just an opinion. Sites are roomy but there are some tight turns for big rigs which made getting into our site a little hectic in the dark.
Lastly we got into a site which was next a previous camper who didn't believe in cleaning up after there animals...so please be considerate of others. St Augustine is a great place to visit and illness back this way again.
