Date of Stay: November, 2009
We were so happy to finally get to return to our favorite campground! Everything was gong well. There were not a lot of campers (20 -30%) full but the campground was in good shape. There is still work to be done but it looks good. Still have plenty trees. The boardwalks are not there yet but the walk to the beach was easy. Now for the problem...Ida the hurricane! Yea, we had to leave a day early. The only reports of damage is the road is covered with sand. Up to 7 feet of it! There is a phone number to call (850-934-2656) that says the road should be open in late December 09. Can't wait to return! Oh, by the way, I don't rate any campground a 10 unless it has 50 amp, water, sewer, cable and working Wi-Fi. Again, GREAT place to visit!!!

A great campground in the dead center of Destin. I would rate it a 10 but it doesn't have sewer or cable TV. Other than that, it is near perfect. The main problem is getting reservations: on 60 sites. Stayed before and will stay again. It's a real jewel!

Good: Park is clean and neat. Easy to get to. Few blocks from public beach. Very close to everything! Opportunities for improvements: Office closes at 4 pm. No answering machine. Sites a fairly close together. We have stayed here several times and would not hesitate to stay again! Very nice campground!

This is a great campground. I don't rate any place that does not have all the amenities like cable and wi-fi a "10. This dilutes the rating system. Still a great campground with very large sites. Alabama has done a great job refurbishing this state park! Trees are coming back. Already planning another trip!

This CG is now Harrah's. We have stayed at this park before and it was good. We ran from the hurricane and needed Wi-Fi badly. Wi-Fi cost $12 a day. After signing up, it only worked for 15 minutes! The CG told us they had nothing to do with the Wi-Fi vendor and then gave us a number to call. After two calls of over an hours each to someone I could barely understand, it never worked. The CG staff said I could use it in the lobby since I was too far away. I was not going to pay the outrageous fee of $12 a day and not have it at my RV! Also, the signal was showing good at the campsite. I plan to tell the CG company not to pay the $36 for the three days I signed up for. BTY, $12 X 30 = $360 a month for Wi-Fi! Otherwise the CG was good. The staff was very friendly. I don't plan to stay here again as Wi-Fi is important to us.

We have stayed here several times as our daughter lives near by. Very friendly employees but they are not there all the time. Check in available all the time. Sites are close together and not paved but level and smooth. A nice place to park and stay but not a campground to play in. Very clean. Next to a ball park and a waterpark. Very easy to get to also. About a 1/4 mile from I-85. You can see it from the interstate. YOU MUST TURN RIGHT AFTER THE HOTEL. We have passed the entrance twice. Not a big deal but thought I would mention it. We will continue to stay here in the future. A nice place. It is across the road from the state park but they didn't have sewer and was really run down.
