It was advertised on their website that a hotel was $55. When I went to check out the bill was 90 and I had ordered no extras. We had two kids 12 and 13. And two dogs. I guess there was also a boat docking fee. Be sure to ask what the extras are going to cost before they nickel...

Shell island fish camp is the ideal spot to launch your scalloping or fishing expedition. Now before I start my review I want everyone to understand that this is a fish camp not the Ritz Carlton. Located in beautiful St Marks FL, it is about 30 min south of Tallahassee. Shell island fish camp is a 3rd generation family run...

It is a nice older motel with a marina, bait shop and boat ramp. The rooms could use updating but I am not there for nice rooms. I am there to fish and have access to the amenities to make fishing easier. They excel in that fashion with flying colors.

This is an affordable option if you're just passing through and need someplace to sleep. The beds were clean and comfortable and the screened in porch on the older cabin was nice. On the down side, the carpetting was extreme ratty, and the shower questionable. We opted out of doing any bathing. Maybe the newer units are better, but the...

The cabins are very nice inside. The staff very friendly. We don't fish but we enjoyed this place. It is close to town that has a few good places to eat. You can walk but we rode bikes on the trail. This place is perfect for bikers! We even road at night. With lights of course.

Some sat with us while we grilled and one even went into st marks with us for drinks. They have a store with bait and some essentials. Not many options...

Stayed for 3 nights at the Shell Island Fish Camp to go fishing with 3 friends. We stayed in the motel which is basic but very clean and has everything in good condition. The office staff was helpful and very friendly. Everyone we saw made a point of saying good morning or good evening. The rooms have a small dorm...

We were double booked at our original lodgings and fortunately able to secure two rooms here at short notice. The people on reception in the camp "general store" were real friendly and the rooms were adjoining which was even better for us. Unfortunately they only had smoking rooms available but in actual fact they were fine. The fish camp has...

“Rating Notes: I gave the "kids activities" a five because there was plenty of room to ride bikes and pull wagons. Even though there is not an actual "fitness center", I also gave a five because there is a tetherball area and some swings which encouraged my children to play outside in the fresh air.”
