    Stayed in a Primitive tent sight (T-15) over a long weekend. Sight was clean and level. The sight tend to be small, but with all the activities that are available on the island you won't spend too much time in camp. The camp ground and Jekyll Island is VERY pet friendly which was a plus for our four legged kids. There are rumors that this camp sight is going to be revamped and made even larger. Bring your bug spray, Thermocells, or citronella candles. Our only complaints are that our fire-ring was pretty beat up, but it was still usable. Also, that campground has a rule the no clotheslines are allowed. I don't know how heavily enforced this rule is. We had a line up for our beach towels and plus it rained. The grounds keeper stopped by to ask as to take it down "once our clothing was dry." I asked what the reasoning for the rule was, and was told it was for campground appearance. No big deal. Plenty of wildlife. We saw deer, squirrel, and raccoon. Be sure to put your food inside a vehicle at night or the raccoon will sure to be into it. Price for a primitive tent sight seemed a bit high, but the location of the campground makes up for the price. Beautiful, natural beaches. They many times we have been to Jekyll the beaches are never crowded, and it isn't commercialized like many of the beaches on east coast. There are many activities on the island and many great places to eat. I highly recommend "Latitude 31/ The Rah Bar" near the entrance to the island. Great food and live music on the weekends. FYI: There is a $6.00 daily park pass to get on the island. I highly recommend this campground if you are looking for a new beach destination.
