Located near I-75, Casey Jones Campground is nestled in between gas stations, a Freightliner dealership, and a hotel. Even so, noise levels at this campground were lower than you’d expect.
Check-in went without a hitch. If you are going to be staying a month or longer you will need to leave a $100 electric deposit. Everyone who checks in gets an escort to their site.
Sites Were Spacious
Our site was a pull-through full hook up site with no cable. There is one section of the park with no cable and since we were late in the season, we took it. The sites were much more spacious than most of the parks we have been in so far. As a matter of fact, we had more than enough room to set up our screen house.
We had no issues with the power during our stay but the sewer inlet was only 2” instead of the normal 3”. We wound up having to go out and buy an adapter to make it work. After talking to many others in the park, it seems that we were the only ones with a 2” sewer inlet. Wifi was just about non-existent throughout our stay. The Verizon signal was good.
4 Basic Sections
There are basically 4 sections to this park. The front section near the office has monthly campers on the outside but mostly overnighters in the middle. The section opposite the recreation hall was for groups and rallies. The recreation hall was available to those groups for their rallies first and the rest of the campground if nothing else was going on. The far section (which included us) was all pull through full hook unshaded sites. The roads were all paved. The 4th and final section was on the other side of Arrowhead Terrace. It was like an overflow section. It was unpaved, unshaded, and full hookup pull through.
Next to that was a section used for covered and uncovered storage. We had quite a bit of rain and only the front of our site was an issue. There were 2 sections with dumpsters, two in our section, and two on the overflow side. The two near our section were overflowing most of the time so if you stay here try not to get close to the dumpsters.
There were 2 laundry rooms, a fitness room, and propane was sold next to the office for a reasonable rate. The office sold coffee and ice only. The fitness room had a few machines in it that did not look like they were taken care of. The park overall was very clean. There was no pool, dog park, playground, or any other game-type amenities. There were only 2 small bathrooms/showers in the park. They were located near the office. If you were staying on a monthly basis, there was an additional charge to use the shower facilities.
One strange thing about this park was every morning there were about 6-10 chickens or hens that roamed the park. I think they were the owners but I am not sure. It didn’t bother us but I figured I would mention it as it drove more than a dog or two crazy…lol.
Date Of Stay: 12/2/17- 4/2/18
Our Review Summary
Casey Jones RV Park
Overall, this is a very clean no-frills park. If you are just looking for a place to park in northern Florida that is very inexpensive and are not interested in scheduled group activities, pools, or any recreational activities, this is a great place to stay. We used it as more of a home-based type park to explore Northern Florida and it fit the bill perfectly.
If we were ever to come back to Northern Florida and needed a no-frills type campground, we would stay here again as we had no issues or problems with this park.
