We stayed here years ago. Years ago we would have given this camp ground a 5.0 in each rating. It has changed over the years. For the worse. This Fam Camp is now a permanent housing area for homesteaders. About half of the park is now homesteaders. We did not get a clear cut answer from management how long someone can stay. Seems who you asked you will get a different answer to that question. Seems management and the host shy away from saying anything about the active duty homesteaders. Talking with a few of the campers revealed that people have been staying here, not moving, for years! A Fam Camp is not housing, mobile home park, or permanent lodging facility. It is a recreational area for all to enjoy. People should be limited to staying a certain length of time and move on. i.e. stay 90 days and then gone for 90. The active duty military and base civil servants (who are most of the homesteaders here now) get paid ample COLA and quarters money. We were told there are quarters available on base as well. There is no justified reason for them to homestead in the Fam Camp. Some of the home stealers are senior officers and CPOs. There is ample housing in the local area. They elect, as one told us, to live full time in the RV park to save money and pocket the quarters and COLA money. And, pay no utilities, taxes, sewer, etc. What a deal homesteading on base. Over flow camping is permitted. We saw many overflow campers hooked into the space next to them. Double dipping off one pedestal. Parked on the grass in a non RV space. Tapping into the water, electric and sewer of the permanent space next to them. This is tacky. Looks bad. Unsafe. There was a OF camper on the grass next to a permanent space anywhere they could fit one there. Rules say to control dogs. No constant barking of dogs. Forget that! We heard a few dogs tied up to RVs barking and barking. Never shut up. Sign on the bathroom door stated due to vandals base security will visit more often. Kids ride bikes and play in and out of the breeze way between club house and the laundry room. Also in and out of the laundry, bath rooms and club room. Host just look at them and keep going. They do not tell the kids this is not a play area. Guess host and management are scared of the homesteading active duty types. All of the kids belonged to homesteaders - active duty types. Over all this camp ground has gone down hill. Up keep is poor. Attitudes of people staying here is "us against you." A few more spaces, along the water, were added since we were here last.

My husband & I visited NSB Kings Bay for the first time this summer & stayed on a lakeside lot at Eagle Hammock. The campground is wonderful, & lakeside lots are huge & worth the extra $2/night. We enjoyed many breathtaking sunsets over Lake D that only our God could paint. Navaida (hope I spelled that correctly!), in the office is so kind & very helpful, as were the camp hosts. (Campground office staff at Mayport could certainly take lessons from her!) The laundry room is very nice & clean, as are the community room & restrooms. Lots of neat paths for walking the dogs & never had a problem with ticks....we use the Seresto collars. The base, BX & Commissary are nice & we took advantage of the dog park just outside one of the gates in a residential area. We cannot say enough good things about this campground! We will certainly be returning! Wish all military-run campgrounds were as nice as this one & Pelican Point at MCAS Cherry Point. Oh, and if you love great barbecue, you have to try Malson's Barbecue in Kingsland. Oh my goodness is it delicious!

This is an outstanding campground. Facilities are top notch and the location right on a lake is great. Camp host was friendly and helpful. Laundry was free which is a new one for us. We will be back.

This was our first trip here and it was also our first trip in our RV. The campsites are great. We had LF8. The cable does not work at the lake front sites, but they do have a dish network box that you can use to get tv. We used our antenna and received a few channels. Wifi signal was good as well at the site. Beautiful campground. Quiet with a nice view of the lake. Each site had poured concrete and was level. Electric, water and sewer connections were within easy reach. Will stay at again for a weekend getaway.

Nice but small RV Park. Friendly host on duty! Office has very limited hours probably due to size of facility, not real busy. Restrooms are very clean and well kept. Conveniently located in the middle of all sites. Small community room with full kitchen open for use by patrons instead of cooking in RV,s. Free ice machine and free laundry facilities. Looks like many spaces occupied by long term RVers. This surprised me due to size of Park. Limits short stay spaces available. Glad I made a reservation. When I pulled in, my reserved space was last one open. ( arrived 1630) Two RVs were in open space with no utility connections (overflow). Probably enough room for 4 to 5 RVs. Expansion is a definite necessity due to popularity! Basic amenities available including cable except lake sites. Pet friendly with dog walks around perimeter of Park. RV park is the distance from main base tucked in the woods next to Lake D. ( I hear there is Bass waiting to be caught). If just looking for peace and quiet and just to relax, this is the place to go ! Only an hour from Jacksonville Florida. Small town of St. Mary's Georgia close by . Can't beat the cost, $19-$23 per night. I will definitely be back!

A busy park near I95, we were supposed to be in overflow, but were lucky enough to get a site both nights. We have stayed here a few times over the last few years. The staff is always AWESOME. It is a nice top notch park with a fresh water lake.

Only negative was at the lakeside spot. We do not have satellite. There is a cable hookup at the site, but no cable at the lakeside sites. Over air was spotty. This was our only negative comment, but a great place to stay!!

Have stayed here 4 years ago. Same cleanliness an very good sites. GPS led me to St Mary's gate which was closed. If you end up there, you can turn around and go right to Franklyn Gate. Thru gate, turn right at 3rd light, straight thu next light, park on right. We had a back in by the lake. Lake sites do not have cable. Over air questionable, have to see if anything at night. We only spent 1 night before heading N/W. 40' MH towing.

Great stay for a week! The base recreational facilities are wonderful. MWR held a casino night at the clubhouse which was great fun! Spray your pups with a little "Off". There are ticks in places.

We decided to stop by here on my birthday without a reservation, they were booked up but the office hostess Meredith worked a plan for us to dry camp which was cool and also the temps were in the 70s so no ac or generator running was needed, thanks Meridith for the support. I still see many family campgrounds have homesteaders and also this one, who needs to stay more than 3 weeks in one place in an RV and by doing so deprives active and veterans the opportunity to visit this place.

February 2017

I've left a review from past visits, but there's been a change to Eagle Hammock, one that I don't like. In the past when we've arrived after hours, there used to be a folder with our name, site #, map, and general base information in it. The site would even be circled. A note on the check-in booth included instructions on checking in with the duty host. However, they no longer do that. I had to wake up the duty host (it was around 10:30pm). At first I was confused because a sign on his camper said he was over at the rec room facility, but it was after hours. I knocked on the camper and got no answer, so I went over to the rec room - as I thought it was locked and dark. Went back to the host's camper and knocked louder - that woke him up. He had me sign in and told me my site numbers (we were traveling with my son-in-law and daughter who had their own camper). I immediately questioned one of them because it was across from his site and all of the "B" sites were full. Long story short, someone had come in around 8pm, didn't check in with anyone, and just took the empty site (the campground was overfull with at least half-a-dozen campers in the grassy areas). It took four attempts to rouse the owner of that RV. He actually argued with the host over having to move. I finally stepped in and told the owner that I paid for that site over a month ago and he'd better move now or I'd call the base police. He relented and packed up his RV (got death glares from his wife the whole time!). I then asked the host to check on my other site to make sure we didn't have a repeat. Fortunately it was empty. As in past stays, the campground is immaculate, very up-to-date, and the best value of the dozen other military campgrounds we've stayed at. Just wish they'd go back to the after-hours check in - so much easier. The host said they stopped doing that due to personal information regarding the camper. I can't quite grasp that as the only personal information on the folder was just my last name.

Nice famcamp, nice amenities, not a real friendly camp host. DO NOT WALK your dog on the trails. Only take them to the dog walk provided. The TICKS here are HORRENDOUS. Still finding ticks a week later. Advantage doesn't phase these blood suckers. Constantly check yourself and pet each time you leave your RV. Nice park but this is a major deterrent.

We love this RV Park. Yes, there are quite a few long-term campers here but they seem to have a good mix of short-termed campers there too. Management must be keeping the ratio of both pretty fair. The only way you would know if someone was staying for months is if they told you - campsites are kept clean, neat and tidy. Facilities are very clean and they have several activities going on each week for the campers. We had a pull-thru site and hookups were convenient to use. (Some places we have stayed, the sewer hookup was under our RV! Had to make sure we didn't run over it!) Camp hosts are very helpful, as is the staff.

Great lil campground. We really enjoyed this FamCamp with one exception. The camp host is a real JERK who apparently thinks he either owns the campground or he should. We witnessed a couple of issues that we felt were handled with absolutely no respect. He literally stood outside yelling and belittling an individual over a leaking blue boy. Next we witnessed him being rude to people over a tiny fire in their fire pit. He has no couth nor respect for his fellow retires. An offer to help or politely go over some rules can go a long way. Hopefully when we return, he either won't be the host or has taken a lesson in customer service

Our 3rd stay here. Last time here I mentioned that the CG roads were over-graveled making it difficult for 2 wheeled transportation. This year the roads were nicely graded and packed. we stayed in a center site (pull-thru) and everything was perfect. Strong wifi, very level concrete pad, FHU and cable. Staff as always was extremely helpful and friendly. We filled up with LP there which is a convenient setup and payed about $4/gal.

This is the jewel of military campgrounds we've visited up and down the East Coast. The pricing is outstanding compared to other campgrounds, yet Eagle Hammock manages to provide so many more amenities. They do have quite a few homesteaders, but I always manage to get sites. Checking in after hours is pretty simple, but finding the open gate where you can navigate is a bit tedious for first-timers - do NOT trust your GPS to get you there because it will either take you to a gate that's only open during the day or to a permanently closed gate (mine did!) or down some road that may have gone into the base but is now completely fenced off. Be sure to get directions from the campground office before trying it. The campground is a bit off the beaten path, but does afford mostly peace and quiet. If sitting outdoors you can hear in the distance shipboard announcements from across the water, but nothing distracting. The base gas station sells diesel and is often cheaper than the nearby stations. However, be careful of filling up with your unit attached - it's a low overhead and navigating around the station and pumps isn't easy.

Very nice campground. Exceptional customer service from staff and camphosts! The only downside is outside the control of the facility; the ticks are very, very bad. Did I mention the ticks are very bad? If you have pets, regardless of tick collars, meds, please check them everytime you take them out and also check yourself. Do not get close to the pine trees or walk on the trails without a post walk tick check.
