Camp Gulf

Destin, Florida

Date of Stay:

We are staying a month ($1,008). Very nice park with workers everywhere to answer questions, and help you in any way they can. Park is well groomed, offers inside pool and outside pool, as well as activities and activity room. Well groomed lots, where you can choose how close to the Gulf you want to be (Including sites right on the beach). Definitely worth the money!

Date of Stay:

Well kept quiet park. Has about 30 sites and all are cement pads and patios. The owners are very friendly and more than willing to help. I thought the price ($330 per week) was high considering there was no pool or clubhouse. Considering it is close to main roads, it is surprising how very quiet the park is. It is a great place to stop and rest a while, but really has no amenities to spend very much time there.

Date of Stay:

Wonderful quiet setting. We were parked right up on Mobile bay. Lots of space between sites, and lots of tall pines for shade. There wasn't much area to ride bikes though, just a loop around the park a few times. The road in front is very busy, and not bike friendly. Would, however be happy to go there again while visiting the area.

Beautiful state park! Spacious lots, walking trails everywhere. A little hard to maneuver with our toad around the sharp corners to get to the campground area. Since it is off season, they come to you to collect the night's fees which are very reasonable. Tables and fire rings were provided. Only drawback was the sound of the trains in the night, which was every few hours.

What a nice park for an overnight stay. We were far enough from the highway to eliminate most of the road noise. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although the roads are dirt, the park was quiet, clean, and well maintained. The sites were wide enough, but not much space left between us and the next site. The patio was almost nonexistent, but I would happily trade that for a quiet park after a long day on the road.

Date of Stay:

I need to reiterate an earlier review. Although the staff is friendly, this is NOT the place to stay if you want a good night's sleep! Start with loud diesels coming in and out of the park until after 11 PM. Follow that up with a 4:30 AM train that sounds like it is coming straight at you. Should you be able to fall back asleep, you will be awoken at about 5:30 with more diesel pick ups running up and down the road as apparently these people are leaving for work. The one next to us "warmed his truck up" for about 30 minutes before pulling out. We will definitely not be back!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The lots are spacious with most being pull throughs. People seem to come and go here a lot, maybe spending 3 or 4 days at a time. It is a good place to come and see what Tucson has to offer as it is close to many museums, etc. There are no social activities like pot lucks, cards, etc. Park is well laid out, but Wi-Fi has not worked or worked sporadically the entire 8 days of our stay. Office says they are "working on it". The "free cable" has about 9 stations 2 of which are weather. No mention was made of the constant train horns which are especially active from 3-5 AM each day--which gets old in a hurry. I would stay here again for the convenience, but be sure I was at the opposite end from those train tracks!

Date of Stay:

The staff is friendly, and the restrooms and laundry very clean. The streets are paved and very easy to navigate on your bike or walking. There are citrus trees all over the park that you are welcome to pick and eat. This is a 55+ park, and is very quiet at night. There is the sound of distant trains, but few horn noise. There is plenty to do in the clubhouse if you like to join in the activities. I had to give it a 9 because the hot tub broke 3 days ago, and is not warm yet--but the park itself is great.

Price reflects a monthly rate. The view from this park is just incredible! The pull ins were easy to maneuver pulling our toad. The sits are gravel with a concrete patio which was nice. The park is quiet. The WI-FI was regulated band width unless you wanted to pay for more. Only one computer could be on at one time-which was a real pain. They also change your password every week--sort of a pain. There are miles of bike trails if you are in the shape to do mountain biking (literally). Nice little casino about 2 miles up the road has great breakfast deals. Only downside, you must buy a pass for the car to get in and out of the park while you are there--as does any guest. We would still go again--only when it was warmer!

Great park with friendly staff and service. The sites are very spacious, and the way they are laid out gives you plenty of room to park your TOAD, as well as sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view. There were walking trails all around, as well as the boat launch and swimming area (too cold to swim though!). You can reserve your site for only a $5.00 fee on line, and they save it for you. We stayed here 4 days. It is a great spot to visit Lake Havasu, only 15 miles up the road. The only downside was that there was absolutely no TV reception. We would definitely come back!

We camped in December and were the only ones other than the ranger in the park! The sites are small and mostly back in. Our rig is 35 feet and there was only 1 pull through that would be level enough for us. The park itself is nice and sitting at an altitude of 7,000 feet. Our potato chip bags expanded with air to the point they almost burst! The park was clean and it looked well maintained. The park ranger was easily available. It looked like there was lots of day fishing going on in this lake, as there was a nice boat launch. I couldn't add much else as we only spent one night, and it was out of season.

Date of Stay:

This is a beautiful park just south of Memphis. It has huge trees everywhere, lots of space between rigs, and you feel like you are living out in the woods. The staff was friendly, and lots spaced far enough you felt you had privacy to just enjoy the woods. Plenty of area for walking or bike riding. Paved interior roads and sites made it easy in and out for us. A great place to feel in the country, yet close enough to visit Memphis easily. We would happily stay there again.

Park was quiet, friendly and clean. We had tornado warnings while I was here. Would have felt much better if the park management had come around and told their campers where to go in an emergency.

Date of Stay:

Great park for a short term. Lots of spaces between sites, and lots of trees. Internal roads were gravel and not level. Corners somewhat tight for our Motor Home. It was beautifully peaceful there, in a rustic kind of a way. There is just not much to really do other than walk around. If you are looking to be by yourself in nature, this is the park for you.

This park is a long narrow "parking lot" backed up against a set of train tracks with trains running night and day. By the way, "day" begins with the 3 A.M. train, which is followed by 2 or 3 trains running at about 5 A.M. with whistles blaring for several minutes for every one of them. The day continues with more trains, which I could get used to...but the early morning trains ruined my sleep. The majority of the units are full timers, and some are 20 to 30 years old and look it. Since the pool is not heated, it was useless on our stay. The internet is spotty at best, and about the speed of dial up. Had we not paid for a week in advance, I would be pulling out this morning! The reason we stayed was that it was Mardi Gras and all other places were booked. On the upside, there is plenty of security lighting and the distance from the beach is only about 2 blocks. You can bike ride or walk for literally miles. We don't have a car with us, and the proximity by bike to everything was wonderful. This park is totally lacking in "amenities" but totally close enough to Biloxi to enjoy it via bicycle.
