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.

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.

Just a brief stay this time (our 5th in the past 3 years) & another FANTASTIC experience! The staff & camp hosts are TERRIFIC: professional, friendly and helpful. The campground is beautiful & well maintained. We stayed in a 35' motorhome.

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.

All the amenities are pretty much as you get in Mayport, very well maintained and clean. Directions are good, if you keep in mind that they bring you into a gate that is closed after normal working hours, holidays and weekends. However, the Stimson gate is only a few hundred yards north on Rt 40-spur and open 24/7. The ST. Marys gate was posted as closed UFN. The sites are nice with landscaping and level concrete pads. We were in the middle lane, which are the pullthru sites. Our only complaint was the CG roads, which are covered with large gravel that ran from semi-packed to loose, making it difficult to ride anything 2-wheeled with safety. The grass was moved several times a week, but with the warm temperatures, we couldn’t sit outside because of the no-see-ums & gnats. Don't be lured by the cheaper gas prices on base, the pump overhang is only 12 ft high. We stayed in a motorhome.

I had originally posted a bad review due to a clerical error where I was charged an additional amount on my credit card which should have been subtracted instead. After going through a process with my CC company and Eagle Hammock RV front desk personnel, the situation was resolved in a highly professional and satisfactory manner. I give them a big thumbs up for their service to the patrons and professional manner of doing business. My apologies for my first posting! I should have been a bit more patient and let the process work itself out. Thanks Eagle Hammock! I will stay again when opportunity allows me to do so. (Editors note - the original review was never posted, as this came in the same day.)

Wonderful from start with front desk staff for same day reservation, camp host Larry is GREAT, and our neighbors came out to meet us right away, and made us feel right at home. Very clean bathrooms, showers and laundry facility. Manicured grounds for regular sites, very pretty. We were in overflow where you share a site in open grass, next to your neighbor that has extra electric and water hookups. Process was flawless and we will stay again.

We're heading North, so we just stayed one night. We've been here before and plan on staying again. VERY easy to see why it's won the awards it has, neat as a pin and everyone helpful. Thanks for the stay!

A beautiful park on a great base. One of the nicest community/laundry areas we've seen. St Mary's is a fun little trip. We went to the Submarine Museum, a bargain at 4$ each. Still a work in progress but they're trying. A nice little town to walk along the shore while enjoying an ice cream cone. The only thing we did not like about the park was the traffic, reason I only gave it a 4 for overall. We were in the pull thru's near the front of the park so there were roads behind and in front of us. Not sure what the attraction was but the traffic was constant, especially starting late afternoon. Many of the same cars going by over and over, not speeding but still kicking up dust and making noise. If we would have been staying longer we'd have asked to move to the back in sites at the end of the lake behind the office where you had a good view of the lake and were away from the action.

WOW is this place packed this year with every overflow used and as many as 5 in dry camping. As this is so close to I95 it is the perfect place to stop going South or North. We have been coming here since this campground opened and it has been well maintained and new hosts here are top notch. Office staff is efficient and courteous and the landscape is always neat. Be aware there will be some changes coming on length of stay when you make your reservation; it will be okay to make it for a 6 month stay (Larry is confirming this). This may make it difficult for travelers to get a site here for a shorter stay so will see how it works out next year. For those of you who have not been here in awhile you can take a train ride in St. Marys and they have several theme rides throughout the year. Only negative is there are homesteaders that have been here many, many years, contractors and more active duty than I have ever seen so less sites for travelers.

This is a 5 star CG that will rival any plush resort that cost many times more. Located away from main side, it offers some seclusion on a beautiful lake. Golf course is a bargain and quite the challenge. Excellent bathhouse, community center, running/biking trails, full service base, etc. Camp host was great and went out of his way to make sure that we taken care of. Arrived with no reservations and were given the option of overflow or dry camp. We opted for the dry camp at 5 bucks a night (May as well exercise expensive gennie for real). Internet was excellent, TV reception with antenna was great, and tank drain/flush easily accessible. So far this has been the most organized, efficient, and cost effective CG--this is the bench mark. Highly Recommended.

Granted, we are first time RV'ers. Been on the road since November on our trip to Eagle Hammock. 4 campgrounds later we have arrived here, to the most pleasant hosts. It's safe, secure, and quiet. My husband and I can't say ENOUGH positive things about this campground. I haven't seen one person that doesn't pick up after their pet and having just started bicycling, haven't seen nor have I ridden on, any gravel drive that is in "desperate" need of repair. Everyone here is so incredibly pleasant. The hosts as well as fellow travelers. VERY helpful. We love it here.

Great campground. The only thing to warn those with pets is that some campers with large dogs are not cleaning up after them. Also the ticks are very bad right now. Can't beat the value and flat sights. Very clean with the exception of the dog poop. The staff work hard to keep it that way. This is our fourth stay. Will come back. Busters post says everything else. Is a top knock campground.

Dec 2014 - Jan 2015

We stayed here several times before. I probably will rate the CG always with 5's because of everything that it offers. The "big" change this time from years past is that there is a completely new staff. The manager has been there about 8 months and two new camp hosts this year. This does have its downfalls, but over-all they are trying to do their best to maintain the high standard set by others. The CG is kept clean and presentable as we would expect it, but, the gravel road is getting into some desperate need of grading. There are organized gatherings at the club house and there was a extremely successful New Year’s Party that almost everyone had attended. Great job to all the staff. There are a few that have somehow become "homesteaders", what a shame; this could be the reason that this CG has not been the "Campers Choice Award" winner over the past few years. As always I would and will return. Our 70' coach and trailer combo fits comfortably on the pull thru site.
