Very few RV spots and they could be difficult to get into as road is narrow. Seemed to be a lot of either full timers or people that keep their sites for weekends/summer. We were there for 3 nights during the week. It was quiet and all of the residents were nice. Friday afternoon lots of people came in for the weekend. Pool was great! They also had boat docks and boats for rent. Restrooms were clean and showers appeared to be new. Office did have some supplies like ice, beer and maybe wine and a few t-shirts/hats, etc. The only complaint we would have is that we were very close to the entrance road and people would come through and stir up dust. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will probably be back. But, if you are coming for lots to do, this isn't the place unless you fish, kayak or just want to relax, which is what we like. We camped at Welaka Lodge & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Town is very golf cart friendly but we biked all over town. Great restaurant just a few blocks away called Shrimp R Us and more. Reasonable prices and good food. They also serve breakfast. BBQ place in town was also good and looked fairly new. Only about 3 restaurants in town and nearest grocery is probably 20 minutes away in Crescent City. Bar down by the river was open on Friday @ 5 and Saturday and Sunday.

This place is an enigma. When we arrived on Saturday, the office was closed. We had reservations, so we found our site, the only empty one here. It was a bit rough and unlevel, but it worked. None of the help was around until we got settled. They were surprised that ANY site was open... the owner included. It's very quiet with a nice pool. It's about an hour's drive into St. Augustine, the reason we were here. Folks, as in Florida in general, are very friendly. Not much to see in the town and no hiking trails nearby, but we liked it. We camped at Welaka Lodge & Resort in a Motorhome.

Spent the weekend about an hour a little south of Jacksonville in a town named Welaka. It has 1 stop light and 1 gas station with a few places to eat. It looks like it is a town of about 500 or so folks. I went there for some fishing in and around the St Johns River. I stayed a little campground lodge by the name of Welaka Lodge and Resort. There are 4 nice looking cabins for rent, there are about 5 RV sites that do not have RV’s parked in them, some are work campers, there is a nice small swimming pool, and on Sundays they have a big party at the dock. Friday and Saturday evening most folks head to a place called “Shrimp R Us” that has live bands and some good food and drink. It is an easy walk from the campground. The owners of the campground are friendly and stay busy keeping the place up. There is no cable or TV reception so plan ahead if you go there. There is no late night parting that I seen as everyone disappeared at about 730PM each night and were not seen again until mid-morning. There are 2 cons about staying there besides the cable; the first is the “BLIND BUGS” 500 millions of them per square yard and they land on everything, get into everything and are a real pain to even walk through. They get side the camper faster than you can open and close the door and you spend along time killing them, really nasty tiny bugs. The second is you cannot launch your boat or kayak for the lodge; yes, they have a nice dock, but no boat ramps. Next door is a fishing camp that has a ramp but ….also has 100 million of the “BLIND BUGS” that make it impossible to even put the boat/kayak in the water as they get in your ears, eyes and mouth and all over everything including you and anything you have, to include getting in your vehicle. There is a public boat ramp down the street about 2 blocks (they only have about 5 million bugs there) that is one of the steepest I have ever seen about 60 degrees and 150 yards long. Then you have to find a place to park up on top the hill. There was 1 bait shop in town but it has gone under so bring your own bait or use artificial lures. The shrimp was running in that part of the river so the fishing was really slow I talked to no one that had caught anything the whole week. The fish were so full of free shrimp that they couldn’t move. In the evening the wind comes blowing through with such force that even using a 3 spike anchor you still drift. Would I go to Welaka for a weekend or fishing again? I cannot think of any reason to return. We camped at Welaka Lodge & Resort in a Motorhome.

My husband and I stayed here for the first time and we loved it! The people were friendly and laid back. No pressure and relaxing. The pool was wonderful and clean as were the bathrooms, and showers. The dock area has plenty of seating and fishing areas and lots of rooms for your boat. You can watch TV on the dock or fish or play cards what ever you feel like doing. This is by far one of the best places we have camped. Thank you to the staff at Welaka Lodge and Resort for the wonderful atmosphere. I am making reservations to go back this weekend! We camped at Welaka Lodge & Resort in a Motorhome.

Very quiet campground. Wonderful dock on the river. Campsites are somewhat tight, but each has fire pit and a table. Great location for exploring the area. Entering the campgrounds can be confusing. You must take road to the right. The office is actual beyond the camping sites. It would be best to pull in and walk to office, otherwise you will have to circle the campgrounds. We will stay again. We camped at Welaka Lodge & Resort in a Motorhome.
