Answer: You will be backed into a canal side site across from the dog walk area.
Not one of the better sites, but the resort is great and a good location
for visiting Key West as well as points north up to Marathon.

Answer: This site backs up to their clubhouse/pool/bathhouse. I believe there is a Tiki Hut and it has a paver pad. Your view out the front of your motorhome will be across the street at sites 49 & 50. Bluewater is 9 miles or so from Key West and that's where you will find the nearest known restaurants. I'd suggest Pepe's or Grunt's in Key West and highly recommend Matt’s Stock Island Kitchen & Bar at The Perry Hotel on Stock Island (which is a couple of miles closer to Bluewater). Good luck & enjoy

*Disclaimer* The rate may not be accurate, I can't remember exactly what we paid, but it was in the $25-35 range. Overall, this campground was wonderful. There were a couple glitches, but hopefully it was just specific to this visit and won't prevent us from returning. We picked this specific site (Which, btw, is a major plus for this part - site specific reservations) because of its proximity to the restrooms. Although we have a TT, we don't use our shower since it's our "closet" :) and we try to use the campground restrooms as much as possible. The restrooms were being remodeled and were closed until the next week after our stay. This meant that there were only 2 other restrooms (4 total toilets and 4 showers) for 133 sites plus the tent sites. It meant for long waits for showers and toilets at peak times. Also, we were given a wifi password, but if there was wifi, we never found it, no matter where we were in the park. Verizon signal was great tho. Also, the site we camped on (30) was a NIGHTMARE to back into. Unless you have popup or tear drop, or tent, I would advise you to avoid this site at all costs. Because of the angle, the posts and trees, it was impossible to back in without driving halfway into our neighbor across the way's site, and then back in. It was a good thing he was there and came out and moved his vehicle so we could access it or we would have never been able to do it. The restroom and wifi were things that we could live with because they were flukes, but the access to this site is something that would prevent us from staying there if it was the only site available. DONT DO IT if you have a TT or 5th wheel. The park itself is so peaceful and lovely. Wildlife, the beach, Atalaya Castle, the proximity to the great seafood at Murrell's Inlet, Myrtle Beach and Charleston a quick drive - made it all so worthwhile! We will def return, just NOT TO SITE #30. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.
If you like seafood, Drunken Jack's in Murrell's Inlet has great seafood and salad bar! Also, have your camera ready for the drive between the park entrance and the campground - the alligators are numerous and makes for great photos!

We had a wonderful stay at this campground and will be back anytime we are in the Panama City area. The sites are very large and private, very shady. They aren't crammed up next to one another, which is nice. The restrooms and showers were immaculate. We didn't use the laundry facilities but they looked nice. Very large gathering room for tv watching, puzzles, games, etc. It appeared they do a lot of community get togethers here. We weren't here long enough to see any.
Gave it an 8 out of 10 due to: no wi-fi (however, we were told it is coming soon); no campfires allowed, and the recent snake and alligator sightings. Of course this is to be expected in Florida especially with so many trees/bushes/overgrowth, but it did put a level of caution in our heads, especially when walking to the showers. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we look forward to staying again soon. We camped at Raptor Ranch at Tyndall AFB (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.
You absolutely must go to the beach on the Tyndall Air Force Base. It is quite a long walk from the parking lot to the sand, but OH SO worth it! It is like paradise: no buildings or tourist places to spoil it. Use the restroom before you go and take a cooler with your lunch/drinks. (Remember: no buildings or anything there except sand).

Campground was great. As other reviewers have mentioned, roads are quite bumpy due to roots. Be aware of this and go slow and it shouldn't be a problem. We stayed at a premium waterfront site & it was well worth the $. Sites were shaded , restrooms were very clean, cable channels were plentiful , showers were hot & great pressure.. Hosts were friendly. Only reason we didn't rate it a "10" was due to the road conditions & the lake was down about 10 feet due to a recent drain. There was a large tree that had fallen on the shore & had been there a while. When the lake was up I can imagine it would be a nusiance for swimmers at that site. Other than those minor things, it was a wonderful stay & we will definitely return! We camped at Tugaloo State Park in a Travel Trailer.
