This state park has something for everyone. It is well used by the community. A wedding occurred there during our stay. Beautiful live oaks give it charm. Sites are very large. There are 62 sites, many with full hookup, all allowing tents too. Over-the-air TV is marginal. We stayed here while touring Cumberland Island and St Marys, the quaint seaside town nearby. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cumberland Island is managed by the NPS. It's worth the 45 minute Ferry to see houses of yore, (Carnegie mansion ) wild horses, and the 18 mile long national seashore.

The park was beautiful and clean. The restrooms were very clean, but I don't think they are air conditioned, so it was a little warm. The campground area is not huge, but the sites are quite spacious. My site did not have sewer, but the premium sites do. The floating dock is nice. Since it is so hot, it would be nice if there was a place to swim or splash. If it had that, I would give it a 10. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an exceptionally clean, nice camp, near the water, lots of walking trails, well maintained state park. They book reservations thru an agency and there were long waits on the phone as they handle at least all of Georgia. There is also no wi fi, TV, nothing! You are secluded, but quiet. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A wonderful park with many upgraded sites now having sewer. The park is well maintained and restrooms are clean. Many guests have dogs, as we do, and walking them is easy here - although some of the lazier guests could take more care to clean up after their pets. The park offers a good base point for seeing much of the Jax and coastal areas nearby. We will definitely return. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

I will add my delight to the 5 star reviews. This was a wonderful park, well run, clean, spacious with all amenities one would need and convenient to boot. I did change the "no" laundry facilities to "yes" as there is a washer and dryer in each of the 2 Comfort Stations. The machines are nice and new and only $0.75 a load. The dryer on our loop (riverside) was out of order but being fixed when we left. The CG hosts circulate all the time and are very helpful. There are sites with sewer there is a dump on the way out. Water pressure was excellent at 40 psi. The trails are wonderful but the no-see-ums (or what ever you call the infernal tiny biting missiles) are awful at dawn and dusk especially. One of the hosts told us of a product they use. It's Olive Oily Hair Sheen Spray (available in the hair products aisle at the local Winn Dixie but NOT at the CVS) It has coconut oil in it so that's what it smells like and those little biters do not like it. Our site was a little more exposed than we would have liked but #19 looked like a perfect spot. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Many people go to Cumberland Island while staying here which is a not to be missed opportunity-one note: unless you are a very good cyclist don't bother taking your bikes. The road (you may not ride on the paths) is deep sand and very slow going. Don't miss the Submarine Museum or walking around historic St Marys. Beautiful.

I believe there is only 62 RV slots. The sites are very large and compared to a normal cash cow campground, your neighbors are not sitting on top of you. So having a campfire, cookout, and setting up your chairs is comfortable. Lots of trees and places to walk. Everyone was friendly and easy to work with. My rig: 42' 5th wheel with a total length of 58'. I had no issues backing into my site. There are pull throughs, but no available when I arrived. One of my favorites so far. We have a 376th Grand Design, so we are hauling a motorcycle. I enjoyed riding over to Folkston Funnel and sit for awhile and watch a couple of trains. We also road over to visit Fort Clinch in Fernandina Beach. I could also see myself going back to Crooked River just to relax and do nothing at all. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground/state park!! Well maintained, clean. Has some full hook-up sites. Very nice staff. No fishing area to speak of, boat ramp available. Well stocked bait shop. Lay out of some sites somewhat strange. Looking only at the map on Reserve America and state park website, you would assume the pull thru's are like most, i.e. picnic table, fire ring etc. facing away from the road, not so much here. Sites very level and well packed gravel. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you do manage to reserve a full hook-up site, make sure you have plenty of sewer hose! Some of the sites sewer drops are pretty far from the electric and water hook-up. Ours was right at the limit of our two 10 foot lengths.

A well managed park. It is what you would expect for a rating of 9. The registration staff were pleasant and helpful. We came in a couple of hours before check-in(1pm) and asked us to wait in an adjacent parking lot for the site to be cleaned. Fifteen minutes later we got the call. The campground is very clean, spacious, open and easy to manage your rig. All sites are level and long. There is several camp host and they are alway busy doing something. The roads are like-new blacktop with gravel sites. Half of the campsites (east side) have sewer hookup which is not mentioned on ReserveAmerica. Good Verizon and received ~20 OTA channels. There are several well maintained hiking trails that can be biked, a bird watching blind and a couple of raised stands for watching wildlife. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent 12 nights here before moving on down to Florida, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The recently rebuilt sites are spacious and kept very clean by the great volunteer staff. We were on the full hookup loop, and the electric, water, ad sewer hookups were well placed and easy to use. The restroom building on our loop was brand new last year, and has four family style private bathrooms, two of them handicap equipped. The building also houses two washers and dryers, with loads just $0.75. The park is located about 20 minutes from a large number of stores and restaurants in St Marys and adjoining Kingsland, including a Super Walmart and many others. We will be back here for another week when we start our northward trek in the spring, and very much looking forward to it. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

I have been so impressed with the quality of Georgia State Parks and Crooked River is no exception. Beautiful park with spacious sites. Our site included sewer. No wifi or cable, but hotspot was fine and we could pick up major networks with the antenna. Good size fire ring that came in handy on a chilly night. Restroom facilities were conveniently located. Camp Ranger and Campground Hosts were very friendly and helpful. We were treated to a spectacular viewing of the Wolf Blood Moon as there was no light pollution. A wonderful camping experience. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this campground because the sites are huge, nicely spaced and we had a good amount of privacy between neighbors. It was also nice to have full hookups at a state park, but that also made the park a lot more expensive than most state parks. We visited the nature center while we were there which was worth a visit. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile worked great there. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

By and large the park is very nice. The sites are level and spacious. Water and electric hookups are very good, and sewage is available at some sites - otherwise there is the dump located away from the campground perhaps half a mile away. The road in the campground is marked one way and strictly enforced which makes getting to the trash dumpster a bit circuitous. Washroom/shower was clean and hot water plentiful. The only downside were the no-seeum's...plentiful and very much in a biting mood. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.

50 amp, W&E back-in site adjacent to the river. We had not been here since 2011 but remembered it as a beautiful park and it really is. The views of the river and the marshes are simply wonderful. The sites are well laid out and maintained. Approx. 25 OTA TV signals and our cell phone hot spots worked fine here. About the only "rub" is that the State of Georgia hits you up for $5 if you are from out of state. Senior discount was 20% which was wiped out by the $5 extra out of state charge. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Motorhome.
