Very nice campground. Bathrooms are very clean and air conditioned. They have 2 washers and dryers for campers to use. Even though this campground says it's on the beach there a quarter of a mile walk on a boardwalk to get to beach. But it is a beautiful cemented path to the boardwalk. Highly recommend this campground. Walmart across the...

Can't say enough good things about our stay. This was the most relaxed Family Vacation ever! We had a large group including my husband and myself, our married daughter, son in law and their children ages 9 and 4, and our daughters age 26 and 16. Very spacious, secluded and clean graveled sites include a fire pit and clothes line....

Cannot say enough about the quality of this park. Second to none. Great facility, the cleanest bath houses I have ever seen at any campground. Close to everything in town. Beach has a private feel due to being for campers only. Reserve early, This is not a place you are going to visit and camp spur of the moment.

We had a fantastic time. It was out 3 years okra first trip to the beach. It wasn't crowded, the water was perfect, he had a blast playing in the sand, the facilities were clean and the park workers were friendly. Prefer this beach to one that is attached to a hotel any day. Just a beautiful beach.

Great campground! Sites are secluded and well kept. Campground is located in an ideal area of Destin/Miramar Beach. Bathrooms have AC! Beach is beautiful, but it's quite a bit of a walk from the campsites to the shore. Bring a bike or cart to tote items. We'll definitely be back!

This is a very nice park. We came to Destin a day early so we couldn't get into the park we had reservations to (Camp Gulf). I wish we would have booked the entire stay here instead. Our site is the biggest we've ever had, a pull thru site, very level and gravel. Down side..... Not full hook up and...

The sites nice and large and private. The absolute cleanest bath houses we have ever experienced! Ranger staff was friendly and helpful and the beach was not over crowded and beautiful as is all of the Gulf Coast. Good bike paths and riding. Great camping experience and it's hard to believe you are so close to Destin! Understand you need...

We did not camp, but went to have a picnic on the beach. It was a nice, clean area with VERY clean shelter houses and bathrooms. We chose the end shelter house so we could see the ocean. We walked all along the beach, it was beautiful, protected nature with a nature walk, and no alcohol or restaurants or chaos....

We went on a long trip with multiple stops at different campgrounds. This has to be one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Truly a hidden gem that we were lucky enough to reserve after a cancellation. The camp sites are spacious and secluded. We could not see other campers from our site. The beach is a...

“All of the campsites are excellent, but if you have smaller children, you may want to reserve a site closest to the path to the beach.”
