RV park St Augustine FL


Recommended Posts

Thanks for your help again! We are on our first snowbird trip and discovering we are not very good at driving the truck to see the sights nearby where we stay.


Looking for a campground near St Augustine FL that has trolley or shuttle service to see the old St Augustine sights as we have never been to FL.


Would like 50 amp, pull thru as we are stll learning how to back up the fiver and near shuttle service or kind of near town.


Thanks for your help!

Checkout the Old Town Trolly website. Their pass is good for three days. There is a pretty big parking lot across the back street from the Old Jail where we park our 23' long bed crewcab. It is where they park the trolleys overnight. I know that they have shuttles from some of the area campgrounds/RV parks. Call them to find out which ones. There are several campgrounds/RV parks in Saint Augustine and Saint Augustine Beach.

A couple of years ago there was parking available off Riberia Street west of a field behind the visitors' center. Tour buses and a couple of RVs were parked there. Aside from the lot behind the Old Jail I think that's the only place you could park a large vehicle within walking distance of town. Note that while you can park in the Riberia Street lot, even overnight, ($35, visitor center) you can't occupy that vehicle overnight.


Also as of a couple of years ago the trolly tour would pick up at the office of Anastasia SP but they couldn't enter the park; it's a trek down to the office if you don't have a car or bikes.

Yes, St johns is PA,... most of the time. They are part of the flea market complex so it is a real mix of people and rigs. They only have 5 pull thru spots. They are right at the entrance as you pull in. Everything else is backins. A lot of full time residents in the rest of the park with a wide variety of ages and conditions. Here's an areal view: https://www.google.com/maps/@29.8316818,-81.3777451,682m/data=!3m1!1e3


THe only other park in the area like you are asking for is Indian Forest. Its down the street towards St Augustine from the ST Johns RV park. Anastasia is nice for camping but not for anything big and it has no pull thrus and almost no sewer or water hookups.


KOA on St Augustine beach is not too bad. It does have a number of pull thrus, is pricy, is tight and a lot of the spots are not very level. Still, we stayed there about a week awhile back. Not much on the beach (island) and it is hard to get most anywhere when there is any traffic because everything has to go over 1 of 3 bridges. The main bridge (drawbridge called Bridge of Lions) goes right into downtown St Augustine but you really don't want to take anything big that way and it is not unusual for 15 - 30 minute delays when there is much water traffic.


From Stagecoach, it is about 7 miles to downtown St Augustine. There are a few great seafood restaurants but not all are great for the price. The best is probably Schooner's and a cash only place on Anastasia island called O'Steens. They are great but a bit more than Schooner's and no inside (or even covered) waiting area. Good BBQ if you like it can be had at a Sonny's BBQ! Two of them in the area.


On St Augustine Beach farther south is Ocean Grove RV Resort and Bryan Mawr on the beach but very pricey, particularly in the winter.

For reference, it is about 20 miles north to the south side of Jacksonville, 7 miles east to Villano Beach.


The season starts mid Dec. and runs into March. Those are the hardest times to find anything in that area. Annual RVers usually lock up a site for the next year before they leave.


Hope this helps.
