We staying at the North Beach Camp Resort for a week in June and it was wonderful. We stayed in one of the pull-through sites with full hook-ups. Our site was huge with a canopy of Live Oaks and lots of palmettos separating our site from the sites on either side. I loved the trees and the natural feel of the landscaping. I also loved the fact that the campground goes right up to the Intercoastal Waterway (ICW) on on side and you just have to walk across the street to get to the ocean on the other side. The pool was very clean and was a comfortable temperature.
The campground has three bathhouses, each with laundry facilities. I only used the showers attached to the lobby/office, as those were the closest to my site. They were kept clean - though there is always sand to be found when staying at the beach - and were freshly painted. The water pressure and temperature were quite acceptable. The only complaint I have about the restrooms is that they're worn looking - the grout needed some work and there was rust round the rim of the sinks. The mirror was loosing its reflective coating around the edges. I felt they were acceptable but my mother, who is more particular about these things, didn't like them. The bath house that looked the oldest on the outside (the one with open air laundry) looked like it had been remodelled inside most recently.
Wi-fi was avaiable at the office building and they had a nice lobby with tables and chairs. You could also use the wi-fi after hours in the laundry room, which also had tables and chairs. I tried using it outside the building, at a picnic table but the connection was unreliable there.
Security: there is a keycode to get into the campground and into the bathhouse.
Discounts: Good Sam or ask about specials. We got a "Stay 6-nights, get the 7th night free" deal.
It is a large campground and a lot of people use golf carts or bicycles to get around the campground. We didn't find anyone in St. Augustine that rent golfcarts but the office said that there is a company in Jacksonville that rents them.
I only had 2 complaints: The first is that they charge $3 for any visitors who stay longer than a few minutes. My daughter lives in the area and we had the pay extra just to have her come and visit us at our campsite - she wasn't sleeping there or using any of the amenities. The second is that there was debris from a previous camper in my site when I arrived. A corn cob and crackers had been dumped on the ground. The campground isn't cheap (though worth the price) and I do feel those should've been removed prior to our arrival.
I loved our time here and would certainly stay at the North Beach Camp Resort again.
