Jekyll island Campground and ticks
We just spent four days at Jekyll Island Campgound. We had a fabulous time bicycling, enjoying the historical sites and beauty of the area. The campground is nice and we will definitely go back.
The only downside of our visit was that we have removed over 60 ticks from our two miniature schnauzers and five ticks from us. We did not walk thru the brush, only in the campground and along the wonderful walkways. The dogs were only walked four times a day because we were so busy.
My point is that the ticks were excessive probably because of the mild winter Jekyll had as well as an abundance of wet weather. The ticks were deer ticks and brown ticks.
This will not deter us from returning but we will take better precautions next time for the dogs and ourselves. So, if you visit there, be careful and take precautions.
