Spent a few days in the middle of august camping in tents. Beautiful camp grounds. Tried to bring a dog but it's worth noting they only allow pets to stay long term not short term. Had to drive out to a kennel before we could get on base. There is a PX a short ways to the right of the gate. It's very small and doubles as a commissary. Only carries essentials and snacky stuff.

Arrived here on a Saturday afternoon. Missed the office on the way in. It's the last building before you hit the park. Be sure to stop and check in. If you have a pet you have to get a "pet pass". If you don't have a pet pass and take your pet off post you can't get them back on post. Also pets are not permitted outside the RV park. The concrete parking pads are huge! I can fit my 40' RV, Spyder, Motorcycle and tow dolly and still have room for a table, chairs, etc. There is a picnic table, charcoal grill, and fire barrels. Camp host was extremely friendly and helpful.

This was our first time at this park. If you read any of my other reviews, you know I don't use numbers. I either like or dislike a FamCamp. Well I LIKE IT !!! Reserved 2 weeks, stayed 3. Our rate was pay for 5 days get 2 free, Great deal. By the lake, trees & bushes, sites not too close to each other, and full hook-ups. Internet is available if you pay. We had a concrete site with fire ring, grill, and table. Most sites have a view of the water and are easy to get in to. A little bit of a drive to town, but I like it that way, no road noises. During the weekends, park was about 90% occupied and it was still very peaceful. They have a great museum of WW2 equipment, from planes to bullets and every thing else in between. Great place to spent some time. No laundry on base, we went to Middleburg {12 miles) to do laundry. A few post back mentioned pets, they are allowed in the famCamp only, there is even a dog park for them, but no where else on base. We had a great time here and will definitely return.

We only stayed one night on the way across the state. After spending time in the Tampa area this was wonderful! Starke appeared to be a nice town with good shopping. The base is a bit off the beaten path but we didn't have to backtrack the next day to head north so it was fine. I was able to book and pay for the site by phone with no delays speaking to a very polite person when we were about an hour out. We were in pull thru site #2, gravel but nicely landscaped and spacious. The park was only about 30% occupied so it was very peaceful. Enjoyed walking around the lake and checking out the other newer areas. We heard it's usually very busy on weekends tho so maybe wouldn't have enjoyed it as much then. Did not use any of the facilities so can't comment on that. We'd do another mid-week stay here again.

A great location to just get away from it all. This time of year the five RV sites in primitive camping referred to by other reviewers stay pretty busy - there was one open during the week-end we were there. These are referred to as PRV1 - PRV5 if you call for reservations. These sites are meant for motorhomes as you pull into them and back out. If you tried backing a trailer in, all the hookups would be on the wrong side. It's a beautiful view of the lake out your front windshield or from your pad while outside. No one was using the tent/popup sites actually on the beach in front of the RV sites. If you have a popup , these are great sites as they are right on the beach, nothing betweenyou and the water. If you have a boat you can pull it up to the shore and tie it to a tree. Bathhouse behind us wasn't used by us or anyone else that we noticed. The normal RV park to the North of the primitive campground appeared to be full or almost full when we went though on our bicycles. Absolutely no amenities (other than a small exchange) on base but as others have said Starke is about 15 minutes to the West with many restaurants, a Walmart Supercenter and the infamous Revel's RV Supply and Service (don't stop in here unless you have plenty of time for idle chit-chat). Middleburg is about 15 minutes to the Northeast and it also has a few restaurants, a Walmart Supercenter and Home Depot (you have to go about five miles North of Middleburg to reach the Walmart and Home Depot).

There are 5 new full-hookup (E/W/S) at the south end of the "primitive" campground, which is adjacent to the RV park. These sites have full cement pads and offer a great view of Kingsley Lake. There is a bathhouse right behind these 5 sites. There is no bathhouse in the RV park. We originally made our reservation for 2 nights, and were given a third night for free.
