See June 2012 review for more info. This CG is no 10, but is a very good value with Passport America. We paid $12 plus $1.50 for cable (a pretty good lineup appx. 65 stations) and tax so it was $29 for 2 nights. The Wi-Fi was very good. The area is not the best and the town like many others does not offer much. The CG itself has lots of old dated trailers, but we had no problems. Everyone pretty much keeps to themselves here. There are two sites that have side but side hookups and no sewer. The one facing the pond is not bad. We were in the other and very close to the sites on either side. These are the pull through sites and the largest. Not very big rig friendly so I would not recommend it for anything over 38'. We would stop again if passing thru the area. Overall a solid value with PA and a not a bad place for a night or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate paid was with Passport America. Very nice little park with the friendliest owners that we have every met. Mostly permanent residents in the park with only four overnight spots. Very clean restrooms and showers. Laundry was very reasonable. Loved the park and would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rater reflects Passport America discount. When first entering the area you may be put off by the numerous trailers, many of which are empty, but this is a little gem of a campground 5.2 miles off of Rt. 10. Campground is mostly permanant residents, but they keep their sites clean and neet as well as being very friendly. The owners are also very friendly. We got a pull through site that had no sewer, but they have a dump station. Seems most sites have FHU with only a few without sewer. Electric was good, water presure was good, cable TV was so so.. Wifi was completely useless. We camped here for 3 nights and using it as a basecamp to see Panama City, Destin and Pensacola. It was very quiet and relaxiing stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I think they created a spot for us but we needed it and it was very nice. We were very close to another RV but he was on the non-lake view side so we had the advantage. Very, very friendly and very helpful hosts. We only stayed one night as it was only for a stop-over but we will stay longer next time. Very clean and nice showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice people in an old - a bit dog eared CG on a lake that needs lots of rain - down about 3 feet. A bit tight for our 37 footer, but drive thru site fit well and level. About 6 miles from I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with easy access to Interstate. Very nice people running the place. Lots of seasonal type residents and working residents. Lake is nearly empty and thousands of tree stumps are showing I guess due in part of lack of rain. Restrooms were clean. Good spot for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cement pads, lots of trees and FHU. Rate shown reflects 7 day PA discount. ($83). Several full time residents but very friendly. Owners were nice and also friendly. It is by no means new but was a very pleasant stay. Had a washer and dryer which we used. Everything was clean and the town had lots of beautiful old houses. Our WiFi worked well and cell phones had good reception. Good satellite and local antenna TV. We didn't use the cable connection which is $1 a day. We would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here from mid January to mid April and really liked this park! It's right on Juniper lake which was picturesque and the sites are roomy with lots of trees. The camp hosts were fantastic and would do anything for us. We paid the monthly rate which included everything. The sites were concrete pads so no problem leveling. The Wi-Fi worked very good and the cable TV was great. We highly recommend this park and we'll definitely come back if in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our week here. Very quiet, peaceful place. A few sites have a 50 amp plug but per the maintenance guy, No sites have 50 amp service. We didn't need it this time of year anyway. Shared posts with circuit breakers for several sites so just find your post along your row. All staff are super friendly and helpful. Sites area all back-in, park on stone with pad for picnic table. Restrooms/showers are old but clean. Rate is Coast-to-Coast. The town of DeFuniak Springs was a bonus. Cute old town with lots of history (go to the library!). Nice walk around circle lake. About 30 minutes to beaches on the Gulf straight south. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a disappointment after the reviews I've read. To begin with, the price has increased six dollars a day due to "An increase in our power rates." Secondly, the power didn't work at the two sites we tried. it was after 4:30PM and the office was closed. Another camper reached the "manager" who guided me to the breaker box where I rectified the problem. Not much service there. The place is tired. It hasn't received much maintenance over the years. It's sad, since it is located in a beautiful area. It's the first time we've not been pleased with a park recommended by rvparkreviews. I'd discourage anyone from staying here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park. Lots of shade trees, large pool, pet walk, Sites are gravel, some with concrete patio, some with wood deck. The lake is beautiful with some sites waterfront. I was here in the winter with only two other campers. It is far enough away from town to be very peaceful and quiet. The staff are very helpful and informative. The daily rate is C.T.C. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground! Friendly staff & owners. Had a great pull-through site with full hook-up. (Sites are a little small.) Only stayed one night (should have stayed longer)!! If it's peace & quiet you want this is the place! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here 2 times. Staff very friendly and great fishing. Lots of bank fishing on two lakes, boat rentals and ramps to both lakes. This is a fisherman's paradise. License required. Limited pull thru sites and some areas are small for large rigs. We stayed in a 36 A and found several sites to handle our rig. Not all sites have sewer but a dump station is available. Two club houses, one for adults only. Rustic but a quite getaway only a few miles from I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, simple, birds, flowers, and the lake. If you want to be entertained, this isn't the place for you. If you want quiet beauty in a country setting, this is. Personnel is wonderful! We sprayed the tires for sugar ants (country, remember?), and had no problems. Spent the day watching and listening. The fireflies made the night complete; the smell of flowers filled the air. We will be back again - our favorite spot on I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here when working at Eglin AFB. There were both positives and negatives. On the positive side, one of the owners met us at the park entrance and showed us to our site. She was helpful in making sure we knew where everything was located and we had full 50 amp hookups. The site was fairly level and the view of the lake was beautiful. Owner lady was very friendly and we enjoyed watching the turtles being fed one evening. We felt welcome with our dogs who she seemed to take a liking to. The park was quiet and peaceful. On the downside, only cash and check are taken for payment. We did NOT know this and faced a nearly $110 cash payment upon arrival as we do not travel with checks. The restroom floor was covered with indoor/outdoor green carpet. The toilet was clean but the shower was fairly run-down. An upgrade on the restrooms would definitely be a big plus for this location. There isn't much shopping very close so if supplies are needed it is best to pick them up en route to the site. We also faced a minor ant infestation on the second day. We found a nest near the sewer hookup and were able to take care of the problem by taking out the nest and spraying inside the RV. Not a very pleasant part of the trip, but overall not a huge deal. I would probably try to find another site closer to where we were working and a little less "woodsy" next time around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We happened upon this campground only because our first choice didn't answer the phone. But we were not disappointed. To best describe it, it reminded me of my days of a kid in upstate NY (rough-sawn out buildings). It is hard to believe this is in Florida. The lake has large trees surrounding it. Has a nice back-woodsy kind of smell to it. The owners were real nice and welcoming. They invited us down to the dock along the lake for coffee in the morning. The 20 sites are level but the horseshoe-shaped road leading in and out is a bit pitched somewhat (we had the first easy in/out spot). Although there were some fifth wheel and trailers present which says it can't be too difficult. Check out the huge fish and turtles right off the dock. Great spot for an over night. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This was a very nice stay. The staff was excellent. We arrived a little late, the host/owner meet us at the entrance, guided us to our site. Invited us for coffee at the community dock, which was overlooking the lake. WOW beautiful quiet place, nice people, good level sites. If you're within in an hour of stopping for the day this is a good place to come and well worth the effort. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Owners very friendly and helpful in backing in the site. Friendly campers met at the lake in the afternoon: lots of great conversation. Beautiful lake and peaceful atmosphere. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I followed the positive comments on Juniper Lake RV Campground and was more than pleased with the results. It's an easy ten-minute trip off I-10 in Defuniak Springs. It's lush, green and is situated on a picturesque lake. You're met by the owners. They help you park and invite the campers to their lakeside evening get-togethers for coffee and conversation. All in all, my two days there were a positive experience and this is a place I'll likely return to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a diamond in the rough. An absolutely lovely park. Management met us at the entrance to guide us into our long pull-through. Our living room slide faced the lake with a beautiful view. Plenty of room between RV's and the female half of the locally managed park made sure all was well before leaving. While sitting on the very large, wooden deck alongside the lake and enjoying the view and wildlife, the owner/manager joined us and filled us in on all the local things to see and places to eat. This is a Passport America park which makes it an absolutely wonderful deal. When we return to this area we will certainly stay here again - only longer! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely park. The park was tidy and had a great common deck/pier for guests. The bathhouse could use a few updates but was clean and tidy. It was a very quiet park with a lot of space between campers. The owner was very helpful and had good suggestions for sight-seeing and dining in Defuniak Springs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Manager met us at entrance to guide us to site, very long level pull-through site, excellent hookups, great WiFi reception, park right on the lake. We had a great view of the lake. Too cold when we were here to explore around the campgrounds. This park is on our A list for returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small owner managed park with a beautiful setting on a lake. We arrived on a very cold blustery Sunday and the owner showed us to our site: a great site on the lake, level, wide and with a deck. He stayed until we were parked and hooked up to be certain that everything was good and we were comfortable. Be sure and get his restaurant recommendations. They were terrific. We would definitely stay there again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this as an overnight stop but wished that we could have stayed longer. It was very quaint, quiet, well kept, and enjoyable. The owners have done a great job on this park and the pride of ownership shows. It's located on a 700 acre lake and is absolutely beautiful. Its about 6-7 miles off of I-10 and very secluded. Very helpful and considerate owners. Everything worked fine. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for relaxing this is the place. Fantastic deck overlooking the lake. Owners know what customer service is about. They met us on the road and guided us into our pull through spot, even checked us in right at our site. They have done a great job with the grounds. Everything worked perfect. Would return again. Used our Passport America membership. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Close to Defuniak Springs. Easy in and out campsites along the road. Lake has lots of weeds by the campgrounds making fishing and boating difficult. Boat launch isn't the greatest. Owners not especially friendly. WiFi for one PC and $1 a day for additional. Well landscaped. Plenty of paved road area near the CG for walking, biking or walking a pet. Has a large deck with grill and lawn chairs/tables. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was one of the best finds on our entire trip. What a joy! The setting and owners are amazing. We found a wonderful place to rest and relax, and owners who have an incredible pride of ownership. We plan on returning for a much longer stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Juniper Lake is a lovely spot a couple of miles from the historic town of DeFuniak Springs. The owner couple have made this park a tranquil oasis on the shores of Juniper Lake. Since there is no boat traffic the park is very quiet, except for the rustling of leaves and sounds of songbirds. The sites are large and level with many pull-throughs. Owner lady is an avid gardener, so the park is in bloom year 'round. Our little dog loved running on the lush green lawn that goes all the way down to the water. We've traveled the width and breadth of the United States and parts of Canada in our travel trailer. After having visited many RV parks we give Juniper Lake RV Campground, on a scale of 1-to-10, an 11. It's that pleasant. By the way, if you're a member of the RV discount club "Passport America", you'll receive 50% off the nightly rate, making this a real bargain. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We decided to join Passport America because of this campground and got our site for 1/2 price. We stayed 3 nights. We've been traveling for over a month across the U.S., and this is the best campground we've stayed in. Not only are the owners very friendly - our campsite is spectacular! We have a 36' class A motorhome and a tow car, and the site is more than big enough. Our site also has it's own private deck overlooking the lake. It's very private and quiet. The owners guided us into the spot, and we felt quite welcome. There are bird feeders attracting a variety of birds, as well as a huge deck near the owners home where fish and turtles are fed daily. They also have free coffee on the deck when the mornings are nice, and everyone sits around and visits. I would love to come back during spring or summer just to see the blooming plants that have been lovingly planted throughout the campground. I strongly recommend a stay at this park - they treat you like family here! We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I chose Juniper Lake RV Campground as a layover during some inclement weather while on our way to Texas. Juniper Lake is a pleasant change from campgrounds laid out in a simple grid, with locations widely-spaced on a hill overlooking Juniper Lake. When we arrived, the owner greeted us and personally backed us into our space. Wireless internet and CATV were excellent. Also, Passport America is accepted year round, which is rare in Florida during the winter months. My wife and I really loved this campground, and we will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice campground with very nice owners. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. They have the best Wi-Fi I've ever seen at a campground anywhere. We spent the night as tropical storm Ida came through, so we didn't look around too much. The owners were very friendly and helpful. When we pulled up after dark, he came out with a flashlight, helped us to our site, and hooked us up. His wife even came by in the morning to see if we needed to use their phone since I had mentioned that I had no cell phone coverage here (with T-Mobile). Would stay here again and definitely recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our stay at Juniper Lakes Campground was a great experience. The owners made it great. The park is rustic in nature and very well kept. They have done a great job of landscaping. The restrooms and laundry area, although older, were clean and orderly. The sites are clean and most have a great view of the lake. The "daily" gathering on the deck for coffee was a real pleasure and is what makes RVing worthwhile. Trading stories not only with the owners but with other fellow RVers was a real hoot. We solved many world issues !! The fish and turtles are even friendly!! We will definitely be staying there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found Juniper Lake RV Campground was a very warm and welcoming place to stay. From my call to reserve a space, to the time we left, it was a very nice experience. The owners are welcoming and lent a helping hand from the time we got here. We had a problem with our canopy and they not only came to assist us, but went above and beyond to help. They gave wonderful hints that would make our travels easier as we really get into RV travel. The campground is a very beautiful rustic place. It is easy to see the love and time that is put into it to make it that way. Sites are level and easy to park your RV. They have a nice laundry and restroooms. A very nice deck where people gather with the owners to share stories and information. It is easy to see why people keep coming back. We will be part of that group. The lake view is beautiful and relaxing. The chimes and bird feeders make sitting out on the deck or in the swings a relaxing experience. If you are looking for peace of mind and a place to just kick back and enjoy good people and nature, don't miss Juniper Lake RV Campground. A small campground with a big heart. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Usually don't bother to do this, but one comment about this campground disturbed me. Yes, there is only one restroom for men and one for women, But this campground only has 20 sites and my husband and I found the ratio (bathhouse to sites) very reasonable. Also, the other camper obviously did not see that there were at least 2 big rigs there at 40' with room to spare. The owners told me that the rigs (they mentioned) back to back were placed that way because the people are there "together" and wanted that setup. People need to get their facts straight before they publish comments. I usually don't comment too much, but felt that I had to address this issue. This is a great park and I stay here every time I pass through. I love this place. It is peaceful & friendly and set up correctly with RV'ers in mind. The WI-FI is fantastic and fast. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This previously owned fish-camp has friendly owners who escort you to your site, most with a pretty view of the lake. Camp has long-term as well as over nighters. We found this campground OK, but were disappointed with only one mens room and one ladies room (with one shower each), which had no heat, and difficult to lock the shed-like outside door. They use a spongy mat inside the shower. Don't think big rigs could make it into the park, as the narrow driveways slope down to the lake and some campers are packed in back to back. Few pull through sites. I think the owners want to keep it small for their regulars and we would recommend this place to owners of small rigs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very well run park, owners do everything possible to please guests. Quiet area, lake within walking distance of sites, with deck to sit out on. Clean restrooms, showers and laundry area. We were here for only one night but will indeed make this a stopping place as we head across country every year for Arizona, next time spending a few days to enjoy the scenery and friendly people. We used our GPS but it did not take us quite far enough down the road, go until you see the lake, call ahead when you start down the campground road and someone will be there to guide you to your site. WiFi easy to connect to and is as fast as any campground can be. Instructions in book are also very clear to follow. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Our host came down the road and guided us into the campground and to our site. It was after dark and we were tired and appreciated the extra effort extended. We only stayed overnight, and it was very cold; but we think this would be a lovely place to stay in warmer weather. The owners are former RV'rs and designed the hookup locations and sites with our convenience in mind. We would certainly return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is very peaceful and quiet with a nice deck to sit out by the waters edge. The owner is very friendly and very accommodating. There is a nice laundry facility, and the shower room was clean and accommodating as well. Cable TV and Wi-Fi were included in the daily rate. We would definitely recommend this place when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners of this park are exceptionally accommodating, right from the first phone call to make a reservation down to assisting you in every way possible to locate the park and get set up. When we arrived the gentleman was waiting at the entrance to the park to direct us to our spot. Once we had parked the rig, we sat right here at a little table and chairs and completed our registration and payment details. We've never had that kind of service anywhere else before. Everything is extremely clean and tidy, the Wi-Fi service is excellent. No fees and instantaneous connections. From our dining room window we watched the squirrels playing along the fence-line, found brilliant green froggies hopping along the water line, etc. Unfortunately, we were homeward bound and did not have time to explore all that the park had to offer, but we would definitely return to this park again and again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small quaint R.V. Park located by a lake. It has a lot of beautiful flowers and bushes. The sites are adequate in width for slide outs. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed one night this time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great little park with owners that really welcome you. Very quiet and out of the way. $19.50 per day Passport America. Owners are constantly upgrading this park and take pride in what they have. If we come by here again I will stay here. Stayed here in a 38' 5th wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When looking for a rv park you will only find this park listed in Passport America. It is a small family owned lakefront park. The spaces were small but they did have some spots for forty foot RVs. We were able to get a site with a lakefront view. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to help us when we left the lights on in our car and killed the battery. Close by in downtown DeFuniak Springs is Lake Defuniak a spring fed lake which is one of only two perfectly round lakes in the country. We camped here in a Motorhome.
These folks offer everything we want most in a campground. We were carefully guided into our site and exiting couldn't have been easier. There were bird feeders in the bushes outside our windows and interesting flowers and plants throughout the campground. We barely left the park. One afternoon the owners had a cookout. No extra charge for the fantastic hamburgers, just good fellowship. We camped here in a 39' fifth wheel and are looking forward to returning. A note of warning, however: You really do want a reservation to make sure a suitable site is open, and you must call ahead as you approach the park so you can be guided in. This truly is necessary. You do not want to enter without being guided. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've been using passport america for years and had always passed by this campground
because they were not listed by "PPA". This year, Juniper Lake was listed, so we stopped overnight (we stayed 4 nights) and we were wonderfully surprised by this charming, small, friendly campground. While the sites are not "lakeside", we had a beautiful view with only a half minute of walk to the lake. The sites are large, shaded, and landscaped. Bathrooms are private and clean. The bon-fire (held as often as you wish) was a great experience and we made many new friends. The next time we travel, we plan to stop by longer and visit with our wonderful new friends who own the park. God Bless them for all their attentiveness and help!! Hope to see you soon! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Although my visit was over a year ago, I find it hard to believe this place consistently receives such high ratings. It appeared to me to be a has-been seasonal place. It wasn't kept up, grass not cut, stuff laying all over the place. I have
stayed at "9" campgrounds and I can definitely say this was not one of them. The hosts may be very nice people but that should be the deciding factor in a campground review. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park this past Oct for 3 nights and found the park to be well run, quite, and friendly with super owners. Bon-fire on the weekend, fishing, and spacious shady sites made our stay wonderful. We would recommend this park above the others in De Funiak Springs simple because the new ownership "makes it happen" I couldn't believe it when they didn't charge more than 15 dollar/night .. oh forgot the ever loving tax! In any case we are heading back in 2003 We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Small park in a beautiful setting. Short walk to the lake. Very quiet with friendly and attentive owners. Children are welcome but there isn't anything for them to do unless they like to fish. Within 5 miles of quaint downtown and shopping. Not far off I10. Easy to find by following signs. Some sites can be a little tough to get into for big rigs. Lake view from most sites. We found this park on a trip to check out another park in the area. Other park was
horrible, we consider this one a gem. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We recently stayed in this park, it was beautiful with all of its shade trees and the view of the lake (700 acre lake, by the way!). During our visit of 3 days, we had the opportunity to speak with the new owners (coming in August). There are upgrades needed and the new owner (full-time RV owners themselves) stated that this is a priority and that they will be staying on the premises to ensure that any and all problems are worked out to the satisfaction of the customer, that will be nice knowing that I can go "straight to the top" to get a quick solution for any problems) Laundry facilities are to be expanded, propane, ice & pay phone will very shortly be provided at the park. Cabin and small boat rentals will be made availible. There are plenty of nice tent sites to go around. Juniper Lake has some of the best fishing in the state as 10 lb bass is considered SMALL. I caught bass on my first cast right off the deck at the cabin. We found that parking our 38 foot class A required some skill, however, once again the new owners have immediate plans to remedy this situation along with new electric & water hook-ups. We enjoyed the park during our visit, it was peaceful & quiet. The new owners seemed very nice and anxious to please this protential/return customer. We are truly looking forward to returning to Juniper Lake Campgrounds under its new ownership. We plan on making this campground our winter retreat this year. I know I am going on and on, but this place is gonna be a super place to be. Also, Destin & Ft Walton beaches are only 30 min away, giving us fun at the beach whenever we wanted .. without the high cost of staying full time at the beach. We camped here in a camper.

The park is clean. Laundry room on-site. No pay phone, but coke machine available. Lake is within walking distance. Pets are "ify." Certain dogs are not allowed because of their aggression. The people are nice. Reasonable monthly rate: $214 for an RV site with everything included. The owners are reasonably flexible. If you like fishing and being "hidden" in the woods, this is the place to stay. We camped here in a camper.
We stayed 1 night at this campground, we followed the signs from the interstate. We had just went through a hard rain and the brake lights stopped working. Had that not happened we would not have stayed at this place. Lights had to be fixed so we stayed. No owner/manger was around. We left payment with another camper. The campground was very much in need of mowing. It worked for what we needed, but would only be a choice if we had vehicle problems. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here one night. Sites seemed fairly level, nothing too fancy, a little on the run down side. Owner showed us to our spot, and then left us alone. There seemed to be a lot of long termers there, but it was clean. An okay place for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely park with fantastic individual bathrooms. Handy location yet very quiet. Stayed only 2 nights using Passport America discount. This park is very well laid out with good space. All paved roads and very good level sites. There are permanents here but in lovely, well maintained, homes. This park is great value. Would highly recommend and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, the rate reflects a monthly rate, that's all inclusive, WiFi, Cable, taxes, etc. This is a very nice RV park, we don't care for the pull through s as they are "buddy sites" which is just something we don't prefer but alot do. We had a back in site, there is plenty of room, alot of great people, but this is a type of community RV park. Alot of the folks there are permanent residents, but everything is done very tasteful and looks very nice, alot of activities in the clubhouse from Bingo, to crafts, to donuts and coffee 3 days a week. They have card nights, horseshoe pits, boat rentals, concerts, etc. WiFi was good. Already made reservations for winter of 2013 in same spot we had. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice resort type campground. Good paved roads with grass campsites. On a lake. Lots of activities. Modern in every way. Individual bathrooms with showers which I like. Saw some kids, but mainly older crowd. It was at the end of snowbird season and before the summer season. About 5 miles from town. WiFi was quick and free. They had a nice club house and outdoor places for activities. We used it as a stopover, but many folks are using it as a week's vacation spot. They appear to have many rallies. We would definitely go back if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean and well-organized. Spent 7 days here. Very active park with daily events scheduled for full-time and part-time campers. Sites are well suited for larger motor homes. An attractive non-denominational chapel is on site and is well attended at Sunday services. The lake itself is fishable and boating with a troll motor is feasible but many old tree trunks protrude from the lake. This is a friendly campground, well run with friendly staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price is for a daily average for the month. Sites are level and are set up in Jack n Jill layout and are all pull through. The office & park staff was awesome. Very efficiently run, extremely clean facilities & grounds. The park would have gotten a 10 rating except for the laundry facility. The very first time we went to use the machines, several were not working, no big deal then, but in the 33 days we were there they were never repaired. Many activities, bingo, card games and I joined up with other golfers in the campground. Wonderful well run Sunday pot luck dinners, though places were saved by the regulars and we ended up sitting by ourselves. The campground is safe and secure. I would definitely return for extended stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very spacious sites set up in Jack n Jill and all pull through. The community is the best ever. I felt a part of the community from the first day. My stay was over 2 months, extended due to a dental issue and had no problem finding someone to help me with a ride for surgery. The office & park staff were awesome, too. Very efficiently run, extremely clean facilities & grounds. The park would have gotten a 10 rating except, not their fault, the lake is at least 6 foot down with no access to the water to fish. Since fishing was one of my reasons to choose this park, I was a bit upset that no one mentioned this at the time of my reservation. Others visiting had similar sentiment. Piers in place but served no purpose except to sit. Many activities, wonderful well run Sunday pot luck dinners. Rate is based on a monthly scale. Safe and secure, flat and level. I would definitely return for extended stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly front office. This is a c/g with lots of permanent residents. It has the feel of a small village. My GPS said it was 10 miles from I-10. Easy to maneuver through the park our 37' with tow vehicle. Easy to level & our Direct TV worked perfectly. Bathroom clean. This park was very quiet. We only spent one night but if in the area again we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was comfortable, very little shade, quiet and secluded. Lake was way down so it was not useable. Most of the residents are fulltime. Was clean and the staff was friendly. Not close to good restaurants. We stayed here a month. Probably would not stay here again. Great for overnight or a couple of days. Access roads are paved, sites are gravel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rates have gone up since last year. The rate I quoted was with a Passport America discount. They do honor the discount for your entire stay. We stayed here last year. Not much has changed except the the price. Clean, friendly staff, good TV. Wi-Fi is another charge. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did an overnight here on our way to Tampa. Interior roads are paved, but some tight corners for big rigs. Sites are mostly grass. Our site had a paved patio with picnic table. It is very quiet because it is 8-10 miles north of I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This an excellent well maintained RV Resort and one deserving the use of the word "Resort". It is located on a private lake in the forested high lands of the panhandle. Well it seems like we were up in the mountains. The lake level was low so there were many tree stumps visible. Otherwise, a scenic setting and very quiet. Due to the number of sites and narrow access lanes the place can have a feeling of being crowded. If I forget about the exercise room the facilities here are excellent. We extended our stay and they offer an unlimited stay for Passport America membership. Not many quality RV Parks offer an unlimited stay, but this one does. We would like to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautifully kept up/nicely landscaped full hook-up RV resort where Passport America is accepted (usual rate for general public is $36/night). We paid $21. Wi-Fi is extra however, $3.95/day at this writing but discounted for stays over 1 day. On 600 acre King Lake, boat rentals reasonable, $35-$50 depending on 1/2 to 1 day's rental. Lots of amenities! Would recommend! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, full facility park. A few miles off I-10. By a lake for fishing. Has a pool and exercise room. Some permanent residents so it's a community with daily activities. Even has a chapel. We were able to get a nice pull through spot for an overnight stopover. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park seems to be an old Coast to Coast facility, sort of rundown with lots of older permanent RV's. Access to park off I-10 was not worth the trip overall. Sites are sand/dirt/grass, not concrete. They do have concrete patios though. Staff was nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were late checking in but no problem, our information was left at the entrance. Park was nice. Lots of full time residents,but their lots were well kept. Nice lake, restaurant, clean restrooms, showers, mostly pet friendly, and the pool was fine. Only thing we didn't like was not enough shade. We will come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here last year also under coast2coast, but they no longer are C2C. We paid a weekly rate of $175. This is a beautiful park. RV's park with their back to one neighbor and facing the other neighbor. I don't particularly like that, but thankfully, we had good front neighbors. The hot tub was closed when we were there which was a disappointment. There is a pier for lake fishing and the permanent snowbirds are very friendly. My husband even got in on their daily tournament of "washers." There is a chapel on the property and weekly Sunday services. Lots to do at the resort and in the vicinity. Only 40 miles north of beautiful Destin beach. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a great park and we would stay here again. Friendly staff, very clean, some sites are tight as was ours, but easy to get in and out. Good cable, Wi-Fi very slow. This park is very quiet no trains or traffic noise. One note, if your going from East to West on Hwy 90 the turn sign for the park is missing so heads up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price per night reflects Passport America discount. They let us use it for the whole week we were there. This is a nice resort type campground. There were planned activities for those who wanted to participate. We stayed a week and will probably return again sometime. Nice sized sites. Shrubbery had been planted between sites, but it actually was hard to get to the hook-up because the cement pad was too narrow and you had to park too close to the shrubbery. Once the slide was out, it was difficult to get to the hook-ups. We didn't fish from the lake but if we return that is something we may look into. Easy drive to the coast and beach area for a day trip. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a pretty nice RV Park with around 200 sites. We stayed here for two months from mid November to mid January and got the monthly rate. We found it to be a little pricey for the area though. They have a lot of amenities but the pool and hot tub were closed for the winter. The WiFi was an extra charge of $25 month. The sites were grass and pretty level and the roads are all paved well. Restrooms were always clean and they had a small store with ice, munchies, etc. They have a restaurant/clubhouse with a lot of activities going on. All in all it's a good park but like I said a little pricey for the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with helpful personnel. Was clean and well-maintained. Quiet at night. Had good bath houses, a nice pool and hot tub. Was even a little church on the property for Sunday services. Nice little cafe if you don't feel like cooking. Beautiful lake (with fireworks on the 4th!) We found our site a bit tight and had a bit of trouble getting in and out, because of the trees, and the vehicles parked very near or partially on the roads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night ($21 PA rate) and wished we had time to stay longer. Park staff friendly. Park had shaded and unshaded sites with beautiful views of the lake. Sites were grass and gravel but had a concrete slab with picnic table. Very clean campground. The park layout excellent - the setup was such that RV front doors face each other (your sewer hookup is next to your neighbor's sewer hookup and not at your front door). Park has small convenience store, restaurant, pool, and playground. Breakfast very reasonably priced - and home fries very delicious! Private bathrooms with showers very clean. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have only rated this park a 7 because the sites are arranged so that adjoining sites are hookup to hookup with the hookup being in the middle of the site. My rig is a 37' fifth wheel and a Chevy 3500 crew cab, so my rig is way over 40'. I ended up spending the night with part of my cab in the street. If you have a long rig think about it before staying for more than one night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for Coast-to-Coast. They add a mandatory $5 for extra services: but that goes for everyone, except those on month-by-month. First 5-6 rows of sites are a bit close but newer sites toward the back are well spaced. Exceptionally clean and spacious bathroom/showers and air conditioned. Has nice staff and owners. Guests we met were very friendly. We will definitely go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good discount for CampClub USA and Passport America members. Crowded but clean. Individual unisex rest rooms with showers. Took off a point for commercial (pay) Wi-Fi (so last decade). Friendly staff. Camp-owned diner serves breakfast & lunch. I've stayed here four times and it's always been pleasant. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We used as an overnight stop in our motorhome and car dolly. Much too big for our taste. Has small but level lots with a cement patio and picnic table. There is lots of activities for families, pet friendly. They DO charge $2 for electric and $2 for basic cable TV as an add on, in addition to their advertised rate!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is PA. We had reservations at Juniper Lake but they did not save a PT site for us so they arranged for us to go to Sunset King. The after hours person made us feel so welcome and made sure we got into a very nice PT site. Clean CG with a great restaurant for a quick breakfast before you take off in the AM. Would definitely stay here again. They take PA, GS and Military discounts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here C2C, $5 extra fees for cable and utilities. Fees are mandatory. Level pull thru sites with pads and grass. Boat dock, boat rentals and ramp for fishermen. Full service restaurant. Paved roads. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Here is an excellent example on how to run a most successful RV park. Tidy, professional, well organized, active and in general well looked after. Warm hot-tub and warm(ish) pool. Result: Fully booked both times we have been here. On top of this (if you are a golfer) there are 2 nice and very reasonably priced golf courses nearby. We will stay here again, and we can only give it our highest recommendation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here for the last 6 years either going west or east. Last time here was Dec 08, Jan 09 for two months. At that time Wi-Fi was $20 per month and very good. This year we came in for six weeks, paid $25 permonth for very poor Wi-Fi. E-mailed management on the deterioration of Wi-Fi, was basically told "too bad"". Everything is more expensive here this year- cable, hydro. Having said that, I must say this is one of the nicer and well maintained parks we have visited. The streets are all paved, concrete patios at every site, where you park is very level and dry. Plenty of activity and pot luck meal every Sunday. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It has many sites close together on flat area, paved roads, dirt/grass sites with concrete patio area. Pay wifi, free cable. There is a good activity level for those staying for winter. Water pressure is low. It is too far off I-10 for easy and easy out. We used our Passport America membership. The park appeared to be mostly filled with snowbirds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park with so much to do. It is a great place to bring the grandkids. The pull through sites were adequate for our 40 foot motorhome, but there were some side by side hook ups. All in all, our stay was quite pleasant. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I must admit, I rarely give a campground "10." But, this campground has just about anything you would want: pool, fishing, boat rentals, restaurant, etc. I had no problem with my Verizon services. One minor drawback is the close proximity to your neighbor. However, their sites are not nose to nose but opposite ends. Our $5 was Coast to Coast. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We didn't have anyone next to us (mid-week overnighting), so we didn't feel the crowded site plans. And yes, there were park models and permanent residents, but things were MUCH nicer and more well-maintained than similar parks we've accidentally stumbled into (we are state park fans, but there weren't any in this area). We found the park to be quite nice--friendly staff, very clean bathrooms, nice dog walk area, meticulously maintained grounds, and very quiet, after the children went to bed ;-) Lots to do here, if one wants to avail oneself of it--we were just overnighting and aren't Wallydockers. Nice spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our experience here was very good, except I was disappointed that wi/fi rate was $3.95 per day, and cable $3 daily. Sites were close, but no more so than in many other parks, and they were level and grassy, with cement pads on the side. Bathrooms were great, very clean and each one private with own toilet and shower. It was a nice park to stroll around, or walk the dog. Sites were a short walk from the lake, which was lovely. We were here for two nights as Coast to Coast members, and would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Verizon cell and Internet do not work here. Campground Wi-Fi is $12/week, but it is excellent. Cable has no TV Guide channel, so you need Wi-Fi. On a big lake, but the fishing dock is in water about 3 feet deep. Not many if the large bass the lake is famous for. Lots of activities and the full-timers are very friendly. A lot of side-by-side hookups, but the layout provides a lot of room on the other side of the RV. Many of the full timers park their pickups close to the narrow roads. The exits from the CG are on curve. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is easy accessible from the highway. They have nice level sites and are located by a big lake. The laundry room came off a little old and smelly so we didn't used it. They have a restaurant on site but don't expect much of it and it closes really early. There's a big barking dog right next to the campground. The restrooms looked good, we didn't used the showers though. Wi-Fi is available at a charge. We would probably stay somewhere else next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were surprised by the high ratings for this park. The campground has a beautiful setting right on a lake, is very quiet, and the staff were friendly and helpful. But when we entered the park for the first time, we were shocked by the row of trailers that faced the entrance. They appeared to be permanent and the first few rows of sites were extremely crowded. As we moved through the park to the newer area and our site, we were very unhappy with the side-by-side hookups. We could literally touch the slide of the motorhome next to us. This could be such a beautiful place if the hookups were modernized and the older, front area cleaned-up. There were numerous activities for residents. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is CTC, $10.+ $2. for cable, you must pay for the cable. Wi-Fi is $12.00 a week, and worked great and fast. Staff very friendly. Park is neat and clean. Most sites are Pull-thru. They are side by side, so on one side your are very close to your neighbor but on the other side you have a lot of room. The park is on a lake and about 38 miles from the Gulf coast. If your looking for an overnight, its about 10 miles off I-10. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We only spent one night at this campground but were very pleased with the ease of parking our 5th wheel. Most sites are pull-thru and are fairly level. Dogs are welcome and there is a large area for dogs to walk. Cable was free and although Wi-Fi was available there was a cost. The campground was very quiet, the staff friendly and overall very clean. The cost reflects the Passport America discount. The only drawback was the distance from Interstate 10. We would definitely stay here again and stay longer if we were not using it as a stop over. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a huge park with great facilities - fishing on lakeside, pool, big games room, movies on Friday evenings, even its own chapel. Only drawback was relative lack of privacy as sites are fairly close together arranged in rows. Otherwise a great place to spend a day or two. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The entrance was tight to maneuver since we were put in a passport dedicated site. Several units flagged the entrance and were older. The staff was friendly and helpful. This trip we used our smaller tow behind. I'm glad because our 5th wheel would not have fit into this site. We could open the door and almost hit the hedges when we steeped out. The food there was good, and yes we will go back, but will make sure we have a site to enjoy our stay next time better. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sunset King is a 5 Star Coast 2 Coast park and we see why. This park is lovely. Located in the panhandle of Fl off Hwy 10. Just the friendliest park we have ever been to. They sell memberships as well. Nice lake full of fish. Sweet church with Sunday service right in the park. Lots of activities in the clubhouse. Join in with the fun as much as you choose or enjoy your privacy. Very clean showers, private. The owners are on property a lot and just are a lovely hard-working couple. Lake full of fish. Nice swimming pool. RV's are a mixture of the big expensive to pop-ups. You will love being here. We plan to spend a lot of time at this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground seemed to be more for older clients. The facilities are a bit outdated but everything seemed very clean and the people very nice. The lake was bigger then I expected. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate given is the Passport America rate which is good for 2 nights. That's primarily why we chose to stay here. It is easy to get to and to drive through. Our pull-through was just long enough for our 36' 5er with our F550 truck parked beside it. The sites are fairly close together, but alternate the way the RVs face. We would come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice and friendly camp ground. Some sites are small, many have concrete pad to park on. It would get a 10 except the full time residence are in bed by 9 and up by 6:30, which makes it touch when you're out during daylight and not back until dark then wanting to sleep in. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Sunset King is part of our coast to coast family for camp grounds we camp there 2-3 times a year and love it there are all kind of things to do for everyone: Friday nights outdoor movies, bingo on Saturday nights, and a nice clean pool. The owners are on site and very friendly. They make you feel at home and like family. We will always stay there on our trips that way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A large park with many seasonal members. We were here for two days and had no problems at all. The sites were a little tight for a 40' motor home but we were away most of the time. Great bath houses - individual rooms that lock and contain both shower and toilet. Much to do in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I can't say enough good things about this park. Very nice park. Well kept. Friendly and helpful staff. Flowers blooming at every site. Large concrete patios. Paved roads through out. Bathhouses were sparkling clean. Landscape was very groomed. No trash on grounds. Privacy fence around entire park. Always something going on in the clubhouse. Great park. Will go back as many times as possible. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We got the Passport America rate. We had a pullthru and hooking up was very easy. There are 2 hookups on each post so one RV goes in one way and the other goes in the other way. Not real close to anything but if you want peace and quiet this will do it. We only stayed one night on our way to Kissimmee. It is 7 or 8 miles from I-10 so we would stay closer to the freeway next time. Voltage was very good and we got the best signal ever for our AT&T air card. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at the Passport America rate. Sites have side-by-side hookups, so little space between units on the driver's side. Site was very unlevel. Two of the three exits from the CG are on a sharp curve. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Tar roads throughout. It seems a little much to charge short term campers $2.00 per night for cable TV and $2.50 per night for Wi-Fi. At 185 sites that means we are paying for these services for the permanent residences. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were very impressed with the separate bathrooms that were very clean. Easy in, Nice staff and extremely nice people around. Felt very comfortable as New campers. The lake fishing was tempting. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
After leaving Fort Wilderness, we were expecting something less in a campground. We were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by an extremely friendly hostess who made us feel right at home. Lots of permanent residents who, except for one, were smiling and friendly all of the time. Bathhouses are extremely clean and well stocked. Park is well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped there in a motor home using our Coast to Coast membership. There was very little shade, but it served us well traveling through as it was reasonably close to the expressway. The rest rooms were clean and the sites were adequate for a motor home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground adjacent to a lake. Even at the end of February, this campground was nearly full. Lots of the campers were spending all or part of their winter season there. They have a very nice clubhouse and quite a number of regular activities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with large sites. Easy to maneuver around park. RV Vehicles parked side to side. Lots of activities. Restaurant on site. Very open for satellite service. Staff friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our experience with camping in the I-10 corridor between Houston and Tallahassee has generally been one of swamp mosquitos and sand fleas. We try to plan our trips to be out of that area before stopping overnight. But it's a long stretch and we usually end up having to stop SOMEWHERE. This trip, we stopped here -- and we were so pleased we came back for a second stay on the return trip. Sunset King was clean, friendly, uncrowded, and had cable and WiFi. The shower and toilets were clean and roomy (no A/C) with a minimum of mosquitos. The pool was good sized, clean, and pleasant. Our only complaint: the WiFi is free, but requires a name and password to be set up in advance -- so if you arrive after office hours, "no WiFi for you!" So call ahead. From now on when I have to travel this route, I will plan my trip to overnight at Sunset King. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground will soon become a member's only resort. Staff is great. This campground tries very hard to offer its guests plenty. Free putt-putt, nice pool, Friday night outdoor movies, Saturday night bingo, nice chapel for Sunday morning service, etc. The lake is actually a bit disappointing. Throughout the lake you can see cut off trees sticking a couple of feet out of the water. You can only boat around the extreme perimeter. Even though the staff tries to make the grounds presentable, some long-term residents detract from the overall appearance with run-down trailers. Sites are very close together. Noticed that some rules were not being followed by some residents especially with regard to alcohol use away from their site. I would classify this place more of a trailer park than an actual resort. I'm glad we checked it out but I would not go back. And would never buy a membership. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not bad for a private campground. Some sites were very close but they had a few that were roomy. Lots of activities. We prefer state park or COE campgrounds but this Coast to Coast resort is fine if you can stand close together sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Ten dollars a night was the Coast-To-Coast rate plus mandatory cable fee. This is a first class campground in all respects. There is nice landscaping. The sites are all well kept and of adequate size. There are nice recreational facilities. There is a store and a restaurant and a nice laundry. All roads are paved. Sites are lawn with a concrete patio. A nice dock for fishing on the adjoining lake. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Restrooms were nice. A Privet heated/ac room. Each restroom included shower, toilet, wash basin w/mirrow, a bench, paper towels & soap dispenser all in one individual room. wi-fi $2.50 a day, unlimted access. Side by side hook ups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice well maintained park. The owners are very nice. Camped here in 2005 for 1 month after losing everything in hurricane. Didn't eat at the on site restaurant but lots of people did. Went swimming a couple of times. Would recommend and definitely would return there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice lakeside location. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, and lots of nice campground members. Out of the way location, but shops, market, and Walmart just 15 minutes away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is in immaculate, new condition. The staff is real friendly and goes beyond the call of duty! There are lots of amenities and activities, such as, pot lucks, holiday parties, crafts, music, etc. The resort has a non-denomenational church on-site with regular services. This park overlooks Kings Lake that has excellent trophy bass! They rent boats and have a new lighted fishing pier. This park is family friendly. Kids can enjoy the playground, basketball or volleyball courts, heated swimming pool, games or free putt-putt golf course. Bring you boat for free launching at their concrete boat ramp. The Restuarant has great food at reasonable prices. They were open everyday for breakfast, during our stay. Lakeside cottages and log cabins are available at a reasonable rate. My family will make this a vacation spot whenever possible. Highly recommend this park as the best one we have encountered, especially in Florida. This park is convenient to I-10 Exits 70 and Exit 85. In addition, they are Good Sams Club members and most other resort affiliations. This is a great place to stay and they welcome Snowbirds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Nice campground, we can see where they have made many improvments. Plenty of room to pull into sites, and a very fair amount of room between sites. WiFi works great in RV, and priced good. Owner lives on site and is very helpful and friendly. It is a little off the beaten path but well worth the extra few minutes of driving. We would stay here again for sure when back in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
I really liked this place. The people were nice and the campground was very clean. They
have fishing boats with electric motors for rent which is great if you don't have a boat with you. They have a nice restaurant on site. I hope to go back here again. It is a little off the beaten path, but not too far as to be inconvenient. It was also a good value for the nightly rate. The sites are nice size. If there had been a concrete or gravel pad under the awning instead of rough grass and dirt, I would have rated them higher. It rained and got pretty muddy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
We paid discounted Passport Am. rate for one nite stopover. Really nice park with many
improvements/expansions going on. Some seasonal folks but sites all nicely kept. New section for travelers. Lovely lake. Activities, small restaurant with good food in clubhouse. Great for family or couples. Nice folks in the office. Will definitely stop again. WIFI was new and free as an introduction when we stopped. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
A nice CG, clean and staff was very friendly. The only reason we stopped was due to a strong storm moving thru the area and we didn't want to be on the road. A ways out out DeFuniak Springs but close enough to go to town daily. When we were there they were adding more sites. The pads were earth and were only about 40 feet long. All were pull thru and level. Spaceing was closer than I prefer but ok for a couple of nights. They needed more room to manuver on the end spaces. No trees nor shade. It was very quiet. The town of DeFuniak Springs is quanit. Holiday season they have a light display in the large park in town. This was a nice place to hole up from the storm but not much else without some fix up. The putt putt was just old rotten plywood. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
