This is an odd campground as it is also a marina. Having said that, we enjoyed having the boating activities going on there as well as camping. the sites right on the river are the best and worth the extra money. the restaurant is just ok but its nice to have it right there as well as the bar. there is a tour boat right there also and we enjoyed the cruise up the river. the sites away from the river are just ok . quite a mix of permanents and weekenders back there. Some sites need to be cleaned up badly back there. generally if we get the sites up front we will be back but not the ones out back. We camped at St. Johns River Campground in a Motorhome.

Deland center is just down the road from the campground and has plenty of shops and good restaurants. the tour boat ride was very informative about the river and the wildlife. the bar closes around 10 pm and seemed very quiet when open.

Right on the highway and road noise is sometimes intense. Only 2 unisex single occupancy bathroom/showers available. Others are closed and chained. Some people do not pay attention to the "No Smoking" rules. One guy came out with a cigarette in one hand, cell phone in his ear and having just urinated on the toilet seat. Many of the RVers here are permanents, but are very friendly and helpful with directions. One guy has his big screen TV mounted on his storage shed door and he watches it at the picnic table. Dogs barking at 2 AM is annoying but, since there are Bear warning signs in the area, a little bit of dog backing is not a bad thing. The sites are level and shade trees are abundant. There are several great restaurants nearby with great seafood and BBQ. We camped at St. Johns River Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice, small campground with no 'planned' activities. Perfect if you prefer to be on your own. You are on a main highway, which is both a plus and a minus. It does mean a lot of road noise. Several good restaurants nearby. Manager was very friendly and helpful. There are nice cabins for rent. Basically, we loved it here, stayed for 3 months! Only thing that was not up to par was the laundromat. Several machines were out of order. We'll be back next year! We camped at St. Johns River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place quiet. Near the St John's for boating and fishing. We stayed here for the Daytona Race. You are not going to be entertained here. It is mostly to enjoy the St John's River. We camped at St. Johns River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Not having a prior review, I was a little apprehensive as we have relied on reviews for our travel. However, my concern was unfounded. If you want a resort, this campground is not for you. St. John's has paved roads but sites are on grass/leaves/sand-dirt(depending on season), like camping in the mountains. Approximately 15 of the 60 sites have permanent residents but seemed to be in an isolated area. Cabins are available for those who do not have/want RV but travel with you. We stayed here during the month of February to use as a base for traveling in area which allowed us to avoid the astronomical fees charged by Daytona-area RV parks for speed week, 30 ml away. This campground is used by race fans, bike week fans and boaters (near St. John's river and many area lakes). The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. One noticeable problem was a washer with a 'out of order sign' for the entire month and another became unusable so servicing these due to the high usage should become a priority. A higher rating would be given if wWi-Fi service were available; we were told with a nearby bombing range, service is spotty or not possible. For internet service, however, the local library, 2 ml away, can be used for secure service. We would return to this park when in the area. We camped at St. Johns River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
