Kelly’s is a little further off the interstate than we would usually do but it seemed to fit our parameters at the time. It did not disappoint. We spoke to someone on the phone and they told us that they were off grounds at the time but she would be there by the time we got there. That was no problem as the shortened office hours are very common in the offseason.
Upon arrival we found the office locked and no sitemap or anything else with any information for us. Hmmm. Ok, no problem. We would call the office number and see what’s going on. When we got her on the phone she apologized over and over and said she had a family emergency and was at the hospital.
We Were Able To Pick From 3 Different Sites
She offered us 3 different sites and said it was our choice which one we wanted. She apologized again. What? No need to apologize. We totally understand.
Our site was fairly level and long enough that we did not have to unhook. Perfect! All the hookups were well placed so no extra long cords or hoses were needed. There was no cable. The AT&T cell signal was excellent and the park WiFi was adequate. The over the air tv in our RV picked up quite a few stations.
No Issues With Sleeping
The campground sat right on US 301 so it was a little noisy but not obnoxious to the point that you could not hear yourself think. It presented no issues with sleeping at night. Our site was towards the rear of the park so that may be why. I don’t know if I would want a spot near the front. This is a small quiet no-frills park.
The park itself was on the small side. The park had lots of trees which are great for shade. We had a tree near us that was dropping acorns on the slide. It sounded like the squirrels were bombing us… lol.
What Was That Code Again?
The campground was clean and neat. The bathrooms were key coded which we like. In our experience, we find that key coding the restrooms always seems to help keep them cleaner. There were some random sites near the office that seemed to be in odd spots. There was a laundry room but it was not 24 hours. There was also a dump station.
There was a fenced-in dog park but it sat in a huge ditch. That was a little bizarre. They had a really nice clubhouse near the office with some chairs outside of it to sit on. It looked like a great room if you wanted to have any type of get together.
There looked to be a lot of long term residents but their RV’ s were neatly kept. The people we saw while walking around were friendly.
There was a large storage area across the street that belongs to this park. The rentals rates were super cheap.

Our Review Summary
Kelly’s Countryside RV Park
This was a no-frills park that was neatly kept and had a very friendly atmosphere from the workers to the residents. If you need a no-frills park for the long term or short term you could consider this park. If we were ever coming through Callahan Florida, we would stay here again.
As a matter of fact, after we spent our week near Vero Beach and wanted to start heading west, Hurricane Michael changed our plans and one of our possible routes had us coming back to Kelly’s. In the end, we wound up going a different way but we would have definitely stayed there again had we gone that way.
