The owners have done an excellent job of cleaning up after the previous owners. Both are the kindest, most helpful and gracious owners we have encountered. Everyone is very friendly. The grounds are landscaped nicely and well kept. There are a number of long timers who are also helpful. They have added a club house for get together. Two docks available for fishing. Landing is available with a recommended $2 launching fee. The lake only allows electric motors - no gasoline. The campgrounds are literally out in the country closer to Geneva, AL than Defuniak Springs, FL. - MOexpat

Excellent little campground! Most sites have at minimum a large deck, and some even have large protected decks including full roof over the deck and camper/RV. Full hookups available, although check the length of your wires/hoses as they can be an extra 5-15 feet away compared to other campgrounds we have stayed. Work is still being done on the campground and it looks like they may be expanding. Currently they are redoing much of the electrical but we never experienced any outages or spikes. It appears that dish network TV is available, but I am not sure about wireless, phone or modem hookups. The owners/hosts are great people, VERY kind, helpful and go above and beyond. Boat ramp close by and there is a recommended $2 boat launch fee which is definitely well worth the graciousness they provide. Excellent fishing most of the year although this year has been tough with the extended and colder than usual winter. - MikeKai

Great little campground. There are a few long term residents which reduces the number of available spots so be sure to call and reserve ahead of time. Excellent fishing on the small lake with two ramps available. There are 21 sites, some gravel some sand. No playground or swingset of any kind. - MikeKai

Pulled off the highway looking for an overnight stay. Found this park way out in the country. Beautiful setting with super friendly staff. Great diving area available along with swimming and recreation. Great, off the beat spot for family vacationing at a reasonable price. A,lot of people staying there, but surprisingly quite at night. If I ever traveled through this area again, I would not hesitate to stop. - Jeff MacDonald
Jun 2007 - $18.00
Very primitive, much sand, roads were in disrepair, sites poorly marked. It took us 50 minutes just to get checked in, staff was new and not very professional. This is an excellent Dive site, great swimming area, kind of small. We left a day earlier than we were supposed to. Hopefully they will bring this park up to standards soon. - jericbarg

Yuk. Sites were awful. Electric boxes falling apart. Only saving grace was the swimming area. A cool spring. I would recommend staying somewhere else and day visiting because this campground is terrible. - skycop

We just spent the night when passing thru. This is an old park our site didn't have sewer. There is a restaurant in the CG and there we a lot of local cars parked in front of it so it must be OK. The bathrooms are inside the restaurant building and are more like a residential bathroom with a bathtub than what you would normally expect to find. There is a spring onsite and swimming is permitted but we got there too late for that.
This place was OK for an overnight off I-10 but we wouldn't spend more time here than that. - agesilaus

Easy access to I-10, quiet and beautiful area. This park is a work in progress. Sites are extremely unlevel, roads needed lots of work. It took over an hour to get our motorhome situated so that the rear tires were not off the ground. The office personnel didn't understand why we cared if the tires were off the ground. A 45' motor home, really?? We had to explain the damage that can be done to a motor home if a stabilizing jack fails.
There is a restaurant located in the park office which they really push. We were given quite the spiel by the office staff both when we made our reservations and upon check in. We did not eat in the restaurant as we felt it was overpriced.
Our site did not have sewer connection but the price was the same as a full hookup site. We were told all of the W/S/E sites were reserved,however the park was fairly empty other than the permanent residents. The one dumpster in the park is difficult to find as it is located on the west side of the office close to some other buildings.
There is no Wi-Fi at your site. You have to sit in the office or out back after the office closes. We did not use the restroom facilities. The swimming/fishing hole is no more than a runoff pond.
The maintenance guy told us that they are getting ready to level the sites and work on the roads. This park will be much better when completed.
We would consider staying at this park again when traveling through. - Harley Oma

Convenient park close to I-10, good for an overnight while traveling. Have stopped there several times. Some sites on a hill not too level, others have been improved. WiFi and cable available and a small lending library. Staff is very helpful. The Mustang Grill at this park is surprisingly very good, with an attentive wait staff. Enjoyed our brief stay. - rversfrommaine

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. - Bob and Inga
Apr 2013 - $12.00
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. - rlyons
Feb 2013 - $10.00
Nice little park along Juniper Lake. The biggest draw back is all FHU are filled with very long-term “perms”. This leaves E/W hook ups for travelers. The Passport America book states they have 5 of these sites. We saw 2 that are usable; as the other 3 seem to be used as extra storage or parking for the “perms”. These 2 are “pull-thru” and back to back to one another. One faces the water and the other faces the rear of a very permanent trailer. Shared power pole contains 1 – 50 amp, 1 – 30amp and 1 – 20amp that must be shared. They do have a dump station. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. This area of the lake is more swamp than lake, so fishing from the bank is not really an option. Bath house is clean and updated. Washers and Dryers are located in the bath house, 2 in the ladies and 1 in the mens. Cost is $1.00 per unit. The biggest draw back here, the local men seem to use the washer and dryers in the ladies room. I am sure most females would find this practice very unnerving when attempting to take a shower. Cable is $1.50 per night. Internet is free. Cell phone service was fair. I would not rate this park as big rig friendly. We are 35 ft plus toad and maneuvering to get to the site was extremely tight. You are in the country here and wild life is in abundance: ducks, bees, frogs, snakes, gators, etc. Rate shown is RPI. We will stay here again. - Full-Timer RV'er

Clean level gravel sites. Well spaced on gentle slope to lake. 30/50 amp service. Very quiet and private. The proprietor is very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. - User3471

We pulled in for only one evening but the view, friendliness as well as peacefulness of the park kept us another day. A piece of Old Florida. A lovely deck on the water with tables and chairs to sit an enjoy the lake. - Dave's Wife
Feb 2014 - $22.00
The park was simple. We stayed here for an overnight using Passport America. It is about 6 miles north of the Interstate and not difficult to find. The owner was waiting for us when we arrived and we paid for the evening at our campsite. The place is quiet, but as others have stated, there are not a lot of extras here. The park is on a lake, but we did not get to enjoy it due to time limitations. One disappointment was the area in general seems to be a bit run down. It could be really nice. I did notice a few ants running around my hose connections at my RV when I was loading to leave, but a simple ant trap eliminated them over the next day. The WiFi and cable were good. I would stay here again for an overnight. - Mayonnaise Farmer
Dec 2011 - $10.00
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. - cwier
Mar 2011 - $35.00
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. - Red Wolf Deux
Feb 2011 - $15.00
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. - P.C. Lalle
May 2015 - $28.00
We enjoy this Rv resort for holiday and long weekend getaways. The owners have created a nice campground with lots of amenities.
Sites are grassed with concrete patio slabs, well maintained.
We have a 32' motorhome and have never had a problem. We have always gotten a 50 amp pull through.
Clean pool, exercise room, friendly staff and volunteers. Live entertainment on Saturday nights which was great for a local place, talent surprised us.
The full timers and those that reside in cottages Keep their places well maintained.
This weekend they had a bbq and Memorial Day ceremony.
Great place to overnight or stay a week. Our grandkids love the pool, playground and fishing dock.
Paved roads and escort to your site. Free wifi and cable. Full hook up. - Gatorgrammie
Mar 2015 - $29.00
We stayed one night in a pull thru. The level, grass site was very close to our neighbor on the hookup side, but we had lots of room on the patio side. It's a beautiful park, and we'd like to comeback when we have more time. - mrpeepers
Feb 2015 - $35.00
This is probably meant for trailers or small motor homes. Small spaces on dirt. Arrived after dark, the person at the office was grumpy. My husband even ask her if she was mad at us for arriving after dark. Pull thru but so close it was difficult getting out. Many long term residents here. Lots of fishing. - travel2011
Oct 2014 - $24.00
Friendly staff. Most sites are back-in. Beautiful setting with views of the lake from all sites.
Cable was fuzzy. Satellite depends on site due to the trees.
The sewer on my site was backed-up and unusable. - jnateg
Oct 2014 - $28.00
First of all, the sunsets are unbeatable. The WiFi is spotty unless you are close to the bathhouse (we weren't so it was mostly non existent for us). Bathrooms are OK, but they are pretty old. Having full hookups is a big plus. Not much for toddler age kids to do at the campgrounds although there are some swings and slides at the other end of the park. Overall a nice park if you're looking for some peace and quiet. We stayed a full week and paid the weekly rate which was $156. - Southern Yankee
Jun 2013 - $30.00
Proximity to the restaurants and stores in Florala is a plus. The staff are friendly. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The wireless (Wi-Fi) works but my signal strength was only two bars most of the time, and the speed was slow (but for a state park, how can you complain). Cell strength was excellent. My stay was in the middle of June, and all of the water side spaces were filled. You have to arrive early to get on the water side because it is first come first served for space assignments. You can call ahead for reservations, but the staff does not assign you a space until you arrive. Because the park is located on Lake Jackson, be prepared for families with kids when it is warm enough to swim. If you want seclusion, try the parks near Baker, FL. They don't have Wi-Fi and they are not as close to stores/restaurants, but they are quiet. - LarryJ
Jun 2011 - $18.00
The stay was good but the big bummer is no sewer hook ups. I talked to the staff: sever hook-ups are coming and Wi-Fi too. The rate is the same everyday. The game wardens are all over the place, so have your fishing permit handy. - ttflightengineer
Oct 2008 - $15.00
Nice, clean and very well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside for us was the lack of sewer hook-up. After three days, the gray water needed dumping. For a two week trip, this was very inconvenient for us. Were able to get a good satellite TV signal and our Alltel wireless Internet worked great. Would stay here again if for a short time. - TeamBell
Jul 2007 - $18.00
This is a first come first serve campground for Active Duty, Retirees, DOD & NAF Civilians only. 44 of the sites are full hookups. Rates are determined by rank. Most sites have trees that provide either partial or full shade. If all sites are taken there is a dry camping location that will easily accommodate at least 8 rigs. To say this campground is awesome is an understatement. Wildlife abounds, you are a short drive to Anchorage to tour around, discount tickets available on base for various excursions, motorized & non-motorized boats for rent and for the golfer there are 2 different courses, The Hill Course and the Creek Course at Moose Run make-up the World's Northernmost 36-hole golf course. Husband played both and saw moose on the Hill course. He completely enjoyed both the sites and courses. Fort Richardson and Elmendorf are connected so you can eat like a king at the Air Force Iditarod dining facility. Camp hosts were outstanding. Unless you are a very late sleeper (11AM) you will see and hear the Air Force jets going through maneuvers. That was a thrill for us to see. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. - petpeople

Staff is responsive and friendly. I had stayed here before when it was Pecan Point and it was fine. But since the original owners are running it it's even better. Great easy in - easy out pull-through spots, right on 231 just south of the Circle. Highly recommended, especially for folks passing through. - Bonnpon

The park is a beautiful park and well maintained. The Wi-Fi was excellent and cable was more than adequate. At the entry station the ranger was most helpful. We were very impressed with a state park having all of benefits that this park has. The only bad thing was, that we were invaded by tiny black ants. - morrison

This is an outstanding state park, full hookup 50/30 amp, good cable TV, and very good Wi-Fi. The grounds and the facilities are all very well maintained and clean as a pin. Very nice large and level sites, most on the lake. A nice sand beach swimming area, great kids playground, boat ramp and small dock. Management was very friendly and helpful. As I said the bathrooms were as clean as a pin, but the only negative was that the water was never more than lukewarm during my 4 day stay, but I would certainly stay here again. - trav
Jan 2013 - $27.00
The campground park is a good park and the spaces at each site will accommodate two vehicles side by side. The sites are level, shaded (next to lake) and all utilities work. The only problem was little hot water showers and the bathrooms need to be better cleaned. The bathrooms appear to be less than ten years old and there is no reason to not keep them clean. The lake is a nice lake and we will give this state park another chance. - AU Fishing

This park is located on a hill. We have a 38 ft RV and even though we stayed in a pull through, we had difficulty getting in and out because of the narrow roads. We did not see the falls because of the dry conditions. This was our second time at this park, but our previous stay was in a 31 ft class C. We had no issues with that rig.
we probably won't stay here again because of the narrow roads. - daviputnam
Apr 2015 - $18.00
The park was clean and just finished some upgrades and repairs prior to our arrival. Some construction barricades still exist but posed no real interference to daily camping life. Our gravel site was a little un-level, we added 3 and 1/2 inches to the entry side and it was camp on! The park was pet friendly except for the swimming area. We enjoyed the friendly service from all and in the evenings the park was quite. We stayed here in our 26 ft TT with our two beagles and would stop here again. - The Wandering Berries
Apr 2014 - $18.00
This is a quiet campground, convenient to Route 10. Sites are mostly gravel and some are small and difficult to back into. If you have a big rig, I suggest you call the campground to discuss site sizes before booking online. Bathrooms and showers, while not huge, are clean. The playground inside the campground is no longer there. However there is a beautiful playground and picnic area in the public portion of the park which also has a small swimming lake. There are nice, woodsy trails to the falls and sinkhole areas. Good for a few days stop. Rangers and staff are all quite nice. - khorne

Friendly owner. New full hook-up equipment. Propane sold on site. Some permanent residents. This is a pasture that is being converted into an RV parking area. Long and wide pull-throughs - did not have to unhitch toad. Surrounded by woods. No paved roads either within or into the property - a consideration in extremely wet weather. We will definitely overnight here again when passing through this area. PA rate. - LandSchooner
Sep 2014 - $13.00
Very quiet setting in the country is in stark contrast to the other park we've stayed at in Dothan. We had a pull-through full-hookup site in an area all to ourselves since the park was not very busy. Owners are very nice and helpful. The entry signage could be improved as you are on the entrance before you realize what it is. Rate is Passport America rate @ $12.50/night. We would definitely return just for the peace and quiet. - Bob & Stephanie

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. - JLitton

We arrived late; the manager came out to insure we connected to cable because of the severe weather warning. The park is very clean, and perhaps the most level site we have ever had. Left our 41' 5er attached to the longbed dually with plenty of extra room! Highly recommend for an overnight or two. Laundry available, and the manager will even loan you her BMW for a run to the store or dinner if you don't want to unhook. - The Ear Vinery

We were only here one night. The campground itself was satisfactory, but we woke to discover ants all over the inside of the RV. Three days later we are still trying to get rid of them. In all of our RVing, we have never had this problem before. Unlike one of the other reviewers, we were not warned and no precautions were offered. If you plan to camp here, suggest you use ant precautions. - Lynne1969

The site I booked on KOA's web page said, "These sites are 70' to 75' long..." When I got there, they assigned me to a site that was 55' long. I looked around and saw longer sites available. I booked the longer site because I park my tow car behind my rig and everything fits if I get what I book. I met the owner and she said their booking system has no way to tell what size site you booked. Well that's not the customer's problem. The worker who escorted me to the site on Day 1 said I could squeeze my car behind the rig. On Day 2, a different worker said I needed to park my car elsewhere. I'm not a complainer and it's my fault that I accepted the shorter site. However, I shouldn't need to complain to get what I booked! Beyond just the short site, they park you awning close to your neighbor. My neighbor's pedestal was 6' from my front door and their sewage hose was 5' feet from my picnic table. Yuch. Wifi & cable TV worked fine. Both Verizon & ATT had good signals. Were it not for the site snafu, I would rank them a 5 (average) due to tight spacing between rigs. - Danno

This campground was not on any review site. We followed highway signs and found a well laid out park. No attendant, so we drove around to select an RV site with hookups and shade. Permanent mobile homes are on one side and rv sites on the other. Site designation is a bit vague. I called the number on all the signage, and was instructed to fill out the form (no pens) and put cash or check in the secure drop box. Utilities were adequate except cable, but air reception was okay. Nice and clean family style bathrooms. Small pool and clean laundry. This park might have more business in the winter season but looks like it is running on a shoestring. I would stop here again for an overnight. - Diane Yeager

We have camped here several times in a pop-up camper and a Travel Trailer. We recommend fall or winter camping here as there are no water activities to do during the summer. There are walking trails, fishing, and paved roads for bike riding. It is great for families and group camping. There are open areas that accommodate group camping and there are more private areas that can accommodate privacy if desired. No reservations available for camp sites, so on long/holiday weekends be prepared for it to fill up quickly. Fire pits are great! Bathrooms are clean but are not in controlled temperatures. When extremely cold outside, sometimes the top is boarded up to help maintain heat. There are not stores close for those "last minute things" so make sure you have what you need. If you do not, you will have to travel about 15 miles to the closest Wal-Mart. We will camp here again. - mastertech13

We camp here once every few years, and it is still a great, clean campground. Water and electric worked fine. Sites spacious, fairly level to level. Trails are extensive and abundant. Excellent bicycling roads. Camp hosts friendly. Cannot beat the price. C-Spire phone service was one or two bars with back and forth 1x/3G service. Stargazing very good, easy to see the Milky Way, and galaxies looked bright in my telescope. Unlike a few years ago, the place has been discovered by residents of Pensacola, Fort Walton/Destin, Panama City, Montgomery, and Dothan, and is a packed weekend getaway. With no reservations available and a first come/serve campsite system, arriving early on Friday may be a must, or you might be dry camping in the A Loop, which would not be that bad in nice weather, and it would only be $6.00. About 70% of all campers left by noon on Sunday morning, causing a camper-jam at the only dump station. As an earlier reviewer noted, law enforcement does come through. An irritating part of this particular outing was people playing radios full blast while U of Alabama and Auburn U were playing football. The volume could have been a bit lower. Another nuisance is a handful of motorcyclists revving their motors for the sake of revving. More unnecessary noise. Nevertheless, the Great Horned Owls ruled the night. We will come again, but may take a weekday or two off to avoid the weekend crowds. - The Happy Traveler

This is one of the best maintained camp grounds I have used. Access to each camp site is easy and the sites on the water side are superb. If you are an angler, try the fishing. I understand there is good bass fishing in the pond and the boat ramp is good. There are two small ponds just down the road that have even better fishing. I would have given this campground a much higher rating if not for the way I was treated by the Alabama State Highway Patrol (ASHP) and the USDA Forest Service. The ASHP patrols the campground around 9:30 PM and 8:30 AM and checks each campsite. If there is no clear evidence that someone is physically on your site the first night you stay in the campground, the ASHP will issue you a ticket in the name of the USDA Forest Service. I was out late having dinner with friends in Andalusia on my first night in the campground and left at sunrise to do photography at nearby Blue Lake. When I got back to my campsite, I found a citation attached to my travel trailer. Needless to say, it ruined my day. - LarryJ

Owned by the Alabama/West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Located near MM 8.5 north of the AL/FL line on SR 137, just north of Wing. Pros: Extremely quiet (although during camp events, that might change). Restrooms and showers very clean. Bicycling along camp roads easy, fun. Beautiful swimming pool, bathhouse. Lake canoeing and paddle boats. Sand beach across lake in Conecuh National Forest. Internet available in lobby. Staff extremely friendly. Food service during camp events (fee). Sites grassy to leafy. Cons: Sites nearest the gymnasium have sewer, those opposite do not. Sewer holes, dump station in need of major upgrade. Pine cones everywhere. Some sites would be difficult to negotiate with trailer or big rig due to narrows and trees. Cell phone coverage spotty at best, better out near the highway. We would camp here again. - The Happy Traveler

A really quiet and clean RV park. The owners are very friendly and helpful in setting up your RV if you need help. They have a park host on site as well as ice, propane, and two laundry rooms. We stayed there for a week's vacation. We brought our boat and was able to rent a boat slip, which was so convenient. The lake is beautiful, especially the sunsets. We fished and swam as well. We met a lot of nice people and cannot wait to go back. - Vicky S.

This is not a destination campground, it is more of a trailer park. Almost all the sites are for long term sites with some folks seeming to live there. The sites are very close to each other and some are quite messy with too much lawn furniture, etc. The people are nice, but its just not a campground, its more of trailer park. - sswervin728

This is a nice park for someone looking for a fishing get away. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful, wonderful people to meet. The park is very cramped, very small lots, but there are a few lots big enough for large RV's. The campground also has a number of long term guest. The showers had what looked like some of the long term campers personal shampoo's and liquid soaps left in them. There is ice available on site, did not try the Wi-Fi so can't comment on that. We found this campground to be quiet even with the large number of guest, and everyone we met were very friendly. The do have a washer and dryer available. We stayed there on a memorial weekend, so the park was packed, out neighbors slide out was only a few feet from our door. Although it was cramped, we did enjoy our stay and would recommend it to someone interested in fishing the lake. - rdaniel911

Stayed here many times in past, first time since they upgraded sites to full hookup. This was a great improvement to the campground. Love coming back to the "mother land", and this is a great place to stay any length of time. Being in the woods of north Florida and enjoying the animals and weather. Park employees are great and help when needed.
Park is located on the grounds of the Florida Caverns. - fire23c

Great park. Paved roads, level, shady sand/dirt sites. Good side privacy. Facilities first class. Friendly staff. Hiking and biking trails are excellent. Cavern tour a must. Our guide was awesome. Lot to do. Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, swimming hole. Saw lot of wildlife. Equestrian facilities and trail. Playground and picnic facility. Camp store. No 20 amp service at sites. 50/30 only. - GDoug

The camp host is friendly and helpful, always offering to provide assistance. Stayed a total of 2 weeks. During Spring Break season was the busiest with all the sites occupied, but by the time we left it was just us and another camper beside the camp host. Walked some of trails, although some others are still under water due to flooding the previous Fall. - BubbaHut

Small campground in the oldest state forest in Florida. It's a nice place and close to Panama City Beach. During hunting season it usually is full of hunters, but is a nice place. You can fish, hike, bring your horses to ride, or trail ride on your bike. - rdaniel911

This is a nice quiet place to stay. Right on a lake with lots of shade. The only downside is that there are no sewer hookups at the camp sights but the owner will drain them for you for a nominal fee then there is a drain right outside the gate. Overall a great place to stay. - ddabbey

Tranquil setting. Quite and relaxing. Sites on lake side are very large. Almost all sites are shaded. We stayed 5 days and never needed our awning out. Two docks for fishing and swimming. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Bathrooms are atrocious. Suspect there has been no updating since the 70s. Mostly clean, but pretty grungy overall. Never saw them cleaned whilst here. General daily maintenance very lacking. Waste bins throughout camp were full when we arrived and were never emptied despite full time on site hosts. Not much to do or see in the area other than water fun at campsite. Washer/dryer were padlocked and were $3.00 each. Would have given a higher rating but for the bathhouse. - AFDTrio

The people couldn't have been nicer, laundry is clean and well maintained even if there are only two washer/dryer. Most of the units were park models but there were plenty of rvs and fifth wheels in the park. - rose1234

Part of the RVC Outdoor group. Very quiet, neat and tidy park with tarmac roads and concrete pads with patio and picnic table. Large pavilion, outdoor pool with insect netting, boats ramp and docks. Large restrooms and showers but only 2 of each for whole site. Friendly staff. Trash collected from site which is becoming increasing rare. 20 minutes from the beaches on The Emerald Coast. Cable tv good. We would have given the park a higher mark but the down point was the wifi. It was intermittent on first day but then failed completely for the rest of our stay meaning we had to go to the other end of the park to the office area to connect. Apart from this we recommend this park. - Harris England

Well located, very quiet, nicely kept up park. 15-20 minutes to beach. 30-45 minutes to Destin. We enjoyed canoeing on channel / river alongside park using their rental canoe. Many easy pull through large concrete pad sites. Each site seemed to have either fire ring or charcoal grill. We would definitely stay here again. - JaLou

This is the one of the worst campgrounds that we have stayed at in the 15 years we have been full timers. There are FEMA trailers all over and trash by a lot of the live-in's. The sites are very unlevel and you can barely fit into the sites. - ob's place

I am tough when rating campgrounds, and I rate this one average. It is not a resort, nor is it a dump. Ample spacing between sites, my site not level so need cribbing under tires. Roads are dirt and would be muddy during rain. Swimming pool appeared to be clean. Store and with diesel and gas on site. There is a small boat ramp and areas to go fishing. I will use this campground on my return trip. - LeeMedic

Price reflects PA rate. This place is fine for an overnight stay, and maybe longer if you want to fish on the lake next to it. I had a pull through site on the grass that needed some leveling, but close to the bathrooms. Showers were down near the checkin and were plentiful and clean too. Not sure about earlier comments regarding the pool--it was sparkling clean and fenced. It was easy to find, Walmart up the road near the Pilot gas station. There does seem to be a lot of full timers, but they are at the back of the large area and away from the overnighters. I filled up at their gas station, even though it was more expensive, but it was a lot easier maneuvering my rig through it than the crowded Pilot. I would stay there again. - cinharover

We stayed here three days which was three days to many. The park advertises Satellite TV but you have to have a box from them and only they only have enough boxes for their full time residents. They also advertise Wifi but told us that it would not be working until August 1. Was told by another camper that they were told it would be working July 1. We have an infestation of ants that we picked up there and in all of our years (15 full time) we have never had ants this bad. Can't seem to get rid of them at all. Everything about this campground is not nice. Won't be back. - ob's place

Called ahead to say we were coming in and assured there was room We stayed at this campground 2 years ago. Staff is very pleasant to deal with. Campground roads are paved but sites are grass or red dirt. Sites used at this time (mid April) are all pull-thru. We'd say the sites were 20' wide, and 50' to 60' long. There are a few trees in between sites, some right in the middle area. Staff came and cut a branch off a sapling to make room for neighbor's slide out vs having him move his rig.
Two bathrooms w/showers in the main building although one was out of order for work the day we stayed. Clean, good water pressure. Laundry is in back side of Quonset Hut - $2.50 each wash and dry.
We only used electricity at our site since we were in for just 1 night, but had the option of water and sewer as well. Air tv received a few channels. Free Wifi worked fine for us to check emails - we do not require more bandwith for downloading other things so we were happy with service.
Campground was very quiet and hardly any road noise from local highway 231 that runs by the front entrance. From our previous visit we knew they were a distance from major highway (10+ miles) but that's one of the reasons we chose to stay there.
Rate was with Passport America discount - We will stay here again when our journey brings us back this way. - yesmar

RV Park not as per their website. Will not come back. Photos from 2005. Park not well maintained, much of what is on their website is not accurate. Pull-through that are easy to use are far from the office and closer to the fishing pond. The sites close to the office and recreation hall are cramped, not easy Pull-thrus because of sites close to the other and trees. Internet slow. Washer and Dryer old. Gym door locked no ccess and Fishing catch and release only not as per there website. Noise from trains, planes and highway, not much from the maintenance of the park! Will not stay here again. - Liz & Bob

We have been to this campground several times - last time about two years ago. Little about the facilities have changed in last ten years, except Wi-Fi (likely 64K DSL going off-site). Don't know their cleaning schedule as men's showers looked like something at gas station; women's were clean. Campground host played music LOUDLY during daytime, as well as on Friday night; partiers came in on Friday night and host did not instruct them to tone it down. Forestry worker started his leaf-blower at 08:15 in the morning for a tank and a half worth of pointless rearrangement of oak leaves. We came to this campground, during the week to find some solitude. The American flag was improperly displayed, as well as tattered, torn, faded, weathered, and unsighted. We've become too tolerant of this level of intellect in the South. We DID enjoy watching the alligators transit the lake during the evenings, their presence annotated by their wakes reflected in the glare of security lights from the opposite shore. Campground hosts can have a great impact on experience. We will likely visit some other Blackwater park, or Open Pond (just up the road in AL) the next time. - johngalt

This is a very family friendly campground. There are hiking trails and plenty of places to fish from. The Host has supplied wi/fi for a donation to the cause, call ahead for camsite availability. Cleanest restrooms I've ever seen! We arrived at 11:30pm and the Host was out there helping us set up camp! This campground is well worth the $15! We most definitely will go back. - adkborn

We have been here before, but the park is going down hill. The interior dirt roads are deeply rutted, and big potholes. The sites have concrete slabs for the tires, but they are breaking and in need of repair. The park has certainly gone down in the last few years. - wilpower

The park is for a quick stay and that's. We barely parked and one of the residents stopped by and talked and talked. The the manager showed up and talked and talked. Sites in poor condition. Gravel and small roadways. Just passing through from FL and we get a sales pitch to stay for the winters. We own in FL. Will choose a different park if we go through there again. - nomosno2012

Managers very friendly and ready to help. The roads look very narrow as you pull in, but had plenty of room (43ft + toad) to maneuver to our parking spot. Mostly packed sand with cement strips (not in good repair) for the tires. Many permanent residents, one of which is a woman whose attributes are apparently producing children and screaming at them. Neighbors TV was loud late at night, as well as neighbors coming and going..talking and slamming car doors. No satellite reception where we were. Park is over priced. Next time I will stay at the local Wal-Mart. - Westside

This is a great place to visit! The sinkhole walk is amazing and very cool. There is a big spring with two pools for swimming. Playground and volleyball area, too. Bathrooms were old but clean. Sites were plain and we had a pull-through site which was pretty level. Lots of shade and plenty of space. - LaMonte

This is a nice state park with a big spring to swim in. The springs are developed with stairs to enter. Camp sites are full hookup and are not developed. Some sites are not level and you will need to make sure to let them know your rig size. We came here to swim and camp over a 3 day holiday. We enjoyed it and so did our kids. Staff was nice and friendly. It was quiet and we will go again. - jpl004

This is a nice campground which is for us close to relatives. We had a site on the back side which was spacious but very difficult to get into because of the narrow street. The site next to the water are much easier to back into. - HaveDieselWillTravel

First and foremost we had cell service here versus just coming from St George's Island and having none. This park is very small with just about 40 sites. Bath houses as air conditioned. Laundry and a coke machine as well there. Only the one bath house for all the sites so be prepared to maybe wait for a shower or toilet. Lots of accesses to the Bayou but not from your camp site. You can rent canoes and kayaks from the ranger post at check in. Volunteers and hosts were awesome and did a wonderful job of keeping the sites and park tidy. Did I mention the bathhouses were air conditioned? Yeah! We were very close to family living in the area so we spent most of our time with them rather than in the waters. Never even put on our suits in fact. We will be back; no problems here! No real extra parking at your campsite for visitors. No guest after dusk; we got in trouble! Ooooops! - MOJOTANGO

Campground was very nice, sites secluded from each other by brush and trees. Sites were wide and shady. Very quiet. It is on a bay and there are canoe and kayak rentals available. Usually a breeze and we didn't feel any mosquitoes. Bath house was clean and modern and had laundry area. No Wi-Fi and limited free TV stations. Grocery stores nearby. Free access to Henderson Beach state park in Destin, but it costs $3 to cross the toll bridge to get the the gulf park. We have stayed at Henderson Beach SP on the beach and like this park just as much. Will stay again in future. - tealcat
