Pellicer Creek Campground Quick History
The Pellicer Creek Campground originally opened in 1973 as "The Pellicer Creek Family Campground", later shortening its name to just "Pellicer Creek Campground". The Campground functioned as an overnight stopping place for I95 & US1 travelers for over 20 years. For reasons unknown the Campground closed its doors to overnight travelers in the 90's. The Campground continued to operate as a full time residence for some until 2003, when its neighboring business "Charlie T's" closed, the Campground also closed its doors completely. In 2007 the property was purchased by a local family who began to modernize the property while keeping its Old Florida feel.    
Pellicer Creek Quick History
Pellicer Creek flows into the Matanzas River, which is part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The undisturbed salt marsh portrays one of the most pristine estuarine/riverine systems along Florida's east coast providing exceptional biological and aesthetic value to the state and resulting in its designation as a State Canoe Trail.
Pellicer Creek, once called Woodcutters Creek, was at one time home to a large timber mill. The remnants of an old bridge associated with the timber era are still visible between I-95 and US-1. The Creek was named after Francisco Pellicer, and early Spanish resident of the area and large plantation owner and carpenter.
Old King's Road was built before the American Revolution for the British. The road was once the main route into Florida and the seaport of St Augustine. Today historians have determined that it runs along the same route, or parallel to US-1. Hewitt's Sawmill used the road to haul lumber to St Augustine. The mill ran on water power supplied by the Pellicer Creek. Some of the mills foundation can still be seen. A large developer of Palm Coast gave the Hewitt's Mill property to the Florida Agricultural Museum, who plans to build a working replica of the mill on the site.
