Destin West is actually in Fort Walton Beach right on the Bay, literally ten minutes outside of Destin proper. This turned out to be a huge plus due to traffic. This resort is all paved with extremely level pads. The pads are actually cobblestone. We didn't need to put our jacks down at all, but we do just to have the additional stability. They hit the pad, and we were done. There are no pull-throughs here, but they do have pull-ins. We had one that when we raised the front shade, we were looking at boats and water (site 10). The hookups are well maintained. The cable TV had over 100 channels. There is a pool with a nice shower and bathroom. On Friday night they set up a screen for a swim up movie. Lounging there you are looking right out at the water. However, there is only one restroom each for men and women that I know of. There may be a bathroom and shower in the front office, so you may want to confirm if that is a need. If you are a large family who really needs the additional facilities that could be an issue. A cobblestone/paved path surround the park for walking which is very nice. We would walk it each morning with the dogs and stop to look into the bay to count the crabs and creatures we saw swimming about. We saw dolphins on one of our morning walks right from the resort. Doggie bags and trashcans are positioned throughout. There is a small private beach as well, but the horrible storm the week before still had it submerged. One site has an unobstructed view, but everyone going to the beach would have to pass it (site 39). There are a couple of unique features to this resort which you may or may not like. First, there is a gate right from the walking path which links the resort to Fuddpuckers, a family friendly arcade/beach bar/ grill right next door! Great views. You can rent watersports here, and we took a pontoon up to Crab Island. Fuddpucker's does have live music on the weekend, so if you are looking for real quiet this may not be for you. However, I am a fairly light sleeper, and I didn't have a problem at all. Also, when you stay here you have access to all the Ramada resort offers across the street. Access is challenging due to traffic, but there is an elevated crosswalk. There are more restaurants, pools, beach and a swim up bar. We will go back. I only have a few dings. The Wi-Fi is spotty at best. We used our phones as hotspots most of the time. The good thing is, unlike many RV resorts, there was no additional fee for the Internet. They have one very clean BBQ grill, but I think for this price each site should have their own. They need larger trashcans as well. Regular size trash bags won't fit. You must use grocery bags. For this price point, most places have valet trash pick up. The maintenance men come around on golf carts several times a day, so it wouldn't be difficult to add this feature. All in all, this was one of the best RV vacations we have had. We are already planning to make this an annual trip. The best deal is to stay for a week with a Sam's club discount. We actually added one more day, and, with tax, it came up to $109. But, you get what you pay for, and I would call this a high-end park. One point to note, on the web site, they say it is restricted to Class A, Class C, and fifth wheels. That was not the case when we were there so still consider it if you have a travel trailer. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very clean, beautiful park. Right across the road from the beach. Excellent restaurants nearby. Pads are concrete pavers, very nicely done. View of the sound. Excellent RV resort, we will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This place looks good but what you don't see can be really bad. There is a bar within 70 feet of the RV sites that has bands on Fri, Sat & Sun nights from 9 pm to 1:30 am. Sleep impossible. Also one of the office staff very rude. Told me when I complained about the poor WIFI that it was the customers fault for having to many gadgets. Also when I complained about the music I was told that it was a resort area and I should expect. The sad news was that the office person told me that the owner of the park was part owner of the bar and knew how loud the music is. And, the big deal about the Ramada was worthless. The pool was not heated and right next to the Ramada is a great public beach with ample parking. We camped here in a Motorhome.
