Saint Andrews State Park, Panama City Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

St. Andrew's State Park, Panama City Beach, Florida. We spent 2 weeks here in June of 2018. Our site was one of the sites that are located on the lagoon, so it had a great view of the lagoon for early morning coffee watching the fishing boats heading out the pass to the Gulf. The campground is a mixture of 30 and 50 amp sites, and we had a 30 amp site. With the high temps, I wish that it had 50 amp for both air conditioners, but with the shade, it was OK.

All site have water, but none have sewer hookups. The dump station is convenient, so not a big problem with a blue boy. The restrooms and bath houses are clean, and in reasonable condition for the age of this campground. Plenty of hot water, which I needed for my back, hips and shoulders.

The beach itself, is top notch. White sands, and emerald waters. Most of the time we were here, there were red or yellow flag conditions, but still had a great time. This is a high demand campground, and they will be only accepting walk ups over the coming winter months, as they plan on doing upgrades to the campground, including all 50 amp sites, and all sites with sewer hookups. I hope that they also trim some of the low hanging branches, as I did scrape in a few areas, and could not get positioned in the site where I really wanted to be, because of the low branches. If in a class A motorhome, be aware that some of the roadways are narrow, and do have low hanging branches, so take your time.

All in all a very good place to spend a few days or a couple of weeks. We camped at Saint Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

Florida Caverns State Park, Marianna, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older state park, that really is overdue for some needed upgrades to the campsites. The campsites, other than the ADA sites are mud, and I do mean mud. If there has been any rain in the last week or so, expect to be camping in muck. The campsite we had was one of the very few that would fit a 40 foot class A motor home, and it was a mud hole. They need to bring in some fill dirt and gravel to level and bring this site up to the roadway level. Water and muck was in our site for the whole week that we were there. Hopefully, when I leave tomorrow, I will be able to get out without getting stuck. They do have full hookups and the sites, but the power does fluctuate quite a bit, so an EMS is recommended. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great state park, maybe because it used to be a private RV Resort before becoming a state park. It has a pool, shuffleboard, horse shoes. a great laundry room. good clean bathrooms, and did I mention, probably one of the nicest beaches any where. Almost all of the site will accommodate a large class A motor home, and are a mix of concrete or pea gravel. Some are shady and some are open. It is hard to get in, as this is a very popular park, and they have a lot of volunteers here that take up a lot of the sites. When we were there, we were told that there were 45 volunteers staying in the park. The beach is probably 3/4 of a mile from the campground, they offer a tram to take people to the beach. You can also walk or bicycle to the beach. This is our second stay here, and it won't be our last. We have already made reservations for November on our return trip.

Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is an extremely popular campground for locals and visitors to the area. We are here currently for two weeks, and as soon as someone leaves, the site is taken by new arrivals. Usually have to book well in advance.The sites are pea gravel lined by landscape timbers. they are long and wide with a nice patio area. They have 50 amp power and water, but do not offer sewer hookups. There is a nice dual dumpstation on the way in / out of the park. There are 4 loops with 20 sites per loop. There are two restroom / bath houses that are clean and well kept. The water ranges from scalding hot to cold, depending on the time of day, and how many have showered. The path to beach is about 1/2 a mile for the campground, but you could drive to the day use area where the walk is shorter. The beaches here are absolutely some to the best you will find anywhere. My only possible negative would be the water pressure is a little subpar at the sites. It seems to be fine at the bath house, so maybe an issue with the water lines being too small in the campground. We loved our time here, and in fact I have already made reservation for the fall when we come back through the area. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park, Niceville, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

We spent the week here the third week of April. First off this place is a mixed bag, at least for us. We booked a large site with a view of the bayou, so that was really nice. The bad is that the sites are dirt and not very level. I used all my leveling blocks, and still was not completely level. Ants are terrible. Most of the sites are interior sites with no views. The tree branches are in bad need of being trimmed. I tried my best to avoid all that I could, and still had limbs drag across my roof , AC units and antennas. The dump is useless for a big rig. You can not get into the dump with all the low hanging limbs and undergrowth around the dump. The park has hiking trails, canoe and kayak rentals and a boat ramp. There is also a rock quarry that is within the park, and the dump trucks will run over you. We had to drive our toad off the road to avoid being hit by one. Will we return. Probably not unless they trim some trees and level the sites. We camped at Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park in a Motorhome.

Big Lagoon State Park, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Spent the week of April 2nd at Big Lagoon State Park located just west of Pensacola Florida. The good was the park itself, for the most part was very nice. Clean showers and restrooms, generally quite, but the big issue for us, is the lack of large level sites for class A motorhomes. Luckily, I did my research, so we had one of only three spaces that would actually fit a 40 foot motorhome. There are a lot of tent campers, which is OK, but we found them to be generally noisier than the other campers. Lots of dogs, some well behaved, others not so well behaved. Would go back, but will be selective about site choice. If it rains, the water puddles in the sites, but does soak in pretty fast. Lots of campfire smoke, so be prepared. I guess the tent campers think that the smoke will keep the bugs away. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Pickens Campground, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Let me start by saying the three stars is not a reflection per se of the campground, but of the campground sites based on the use by a 40 foot class A motorhome. Even though there are numerous sites that say they are suitable for this size motorhome, the one we were in was barely big enough to fit the motorhome without sticking out into the small narrow interior roadway. Trying to back into the site, with everyone parking barely out of the roadway, or even protruding into the roadway was a huge challenge. I almost got the coach stuck trying to get into this site. I did find about 6 to 8 sites in the campground that would fit a 40 to 43 footer with room to manuever into the site, so choose your site very carefully if you have a big rig. There also seems to be very little regard for the 5 mph speed limit on the interior roads. We had people running at least 25 mph through the campground. We love the location of this campground, and the staff were very friendly. The bath houses and restrooms were very clean and one had recently been upgraded. The laundry room was closed, so don't know about it. We will probably go back at some point in the future, but I will be very selective about which sites to book. You can not go by the information on the web site. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Motorhome.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

This is a Florida State Park, but you could easily mistake it for a RV Resort. Beautifully manicure landscapes, park lighting and site lighting, full 50 amp hookups, easy to manever interior roads and easy to back into spaces. Nice small pool, shuffle board, bike rental, kayak rental. Clean restrooms with clean showers. Nice laundry room. Plenty of bike friendly paths, and trails for hiking. The only real drawback that I found with the park is the 1/2 mile distance to the beach. They provide a tram, but you can walk or ride a bike as well. We were lucky enough to have a beach cart that I pulled behind the bike to carry our "stuff" to the beach and back. First visit and we have already made reservations to return. We camped in a 40 f00t motorhome with full sized pickup toad, with room to spare in our spot. Nice vegetation between most of the sites offer some privacy.

Tips for other Campers:

For larger RV's, be selective about the site. Some are shorter than others, and not as wide. There are also some that are concrete and some that are gravel. A few do have low hanging branches, so you may want to call and verify the site before booking.

Picacho Peak State Park, Picacho, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

To be honest, it was late when we arrived, and only stayed one night, but the park is very nice, clean, and well kept. The spaces are very tight for a big rig. We have a 40 foot motorhome, and selected a pull through site, that was so tight that it was almost impossible to get into and let the slides out. You had to be positioned just right to clear the cement poles they put up to protect the utilities. We will go back at some time in the future, but I will not get a pull through site. it appeared that the back in sites were more open for a big rig.

Balmorhea State Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We had a pull through site that would fit a 40 footer, but after looking at the site, decided that it would be better to back into the site. The site was small and narrow, so I had to make sure that I positioned the coach just right to be able to let out the slides. Electric was good and the water was adequate. Didn't have sewer, and I didn't see a dump station, but I didn't need it either. The park itself is nice and clean, but expect a large crowd for the pool during the day. May go back again in the future, when we can spend more time here. We were just there for one night on our trip back home from California. We camped at Balmorhea State Park in a Motorhome.

Davis Bayou Campground, Ocean Springs, Mississippi

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

First let me say the our entire stay here was really nice and the friendly staff is first rate. The site we had, was one of the most requested sites, and easily fit our 40 footer with 4 slides. The park was very clean and well kept. Now the downside. For a big rig, this is a tough park to get in and out of not because of the roads, but because the trees are in desperate need of a good trimming. I had to stop and slowly go around as best I could the low lying limbs and vines. If they would trim the tress, this would easily be a 9 rating. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.
