Rate reflects $1o0 per night + resort fee + "cleaning fee" + "Processing Fee" less FMCA discount. Having said that these lots are fantastic and the resort is incredibly well maintained. Staff was professional on check-in if not friendly. You are across the street from the gulf but "you can't get there from here." The beach in front of the condos is private so you have to go to the state park or north to a beach access. There is a pool and several of the lots are amazing. On the other hand the resort is far from built out so there are construction sites and views. We found several great places to eat including one right on the gulf. If we are to go the Gulf again, we would certainly consider Buena Vista. We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Finally a RV Resort that someone who understands RV's had a hand in designing! The focal point(s) of the Park are the lagoon with fountains and the pool/lazy river complex. The individual sites are pull-in or back-in, depending upon which position will give the best view out the panoramic windshield of most motorcoaches! I have never understood why even newer resorts seem to think a motorhome has a huge rear window to look out. Also, professional landscaping includes 6-7' tall bushes for privacy between sites. We stayed in a bare-bones site (#16) with no chairs/tables, tiki hut, hot tubs, etc and were perfectly happy. Just a short walk to the indoor heated pool/jacuzzi which was welcome in late October. If you want to grill, have a propane grill (some sites have nice, large grills provided, ours didn't). No charcoal, open flame grills allowed and there are no fire rings. But.....the privately owned site behind us had an outdoor fireplace. Go figure. We have been staying at another RV Resort located on Okaloosa Island in the Ft Walton Bch/West Destin area, but this place has it beat, hands down. We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow! One of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at. We stayed June 2017 in slot 103. You get a pass to the state park for the beach which is 3/4 of a mile. Resort has a wonderful lazy river pool, water slide, and waterfall. Great for kiddos. These are owned slots and some have more amenities than others. Some have adjoining condos next to the slots. Would accommodate large group. Super nice. Close to everything! We will be back! We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an owner park with aprox. 42 finished sites. The location was excellent right on Hwy 182 across from beaches (but not on the ocean). The facility is well kept and professionally landscaped. The Interior roads and sites were brick and/or concrete. They were very spacious with plenty of "elboy" room. Some had Tiki Shade stuctures, furniture and outdoor kitchens. Easy to get around the park and their back road goes into the State park which has miles and miles of bike/hiking trails. State park also has a really nice golf course close by. The staff was very friendly and attentive. This is a destination park to enjoy the beach a few day trips around the area. Pensacola Fla is only 28 miles away . The pool was amazing with Lazy River and super slide for kids. We would stay here again. We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We are regular visitors to Buena Vista RV resort. If you are looking for first class accommodations, then Buena Vista is the place. Its located across the highway from the beach at the west end of Orange Beach. It is very expensive though. A gated resort, the basic site is brick paved and landscaped. The pavers extend beyond the parking area to form a patio. Several sites have tiki huts with high end gas grills and gas fire pits. One site has a stone fireplace and a private hot tub. Another site has a small private pool. Last year they added a lazy river. Everything is done first class. Several of the sites have a "coach house" built on the lot. At least one of these is available to rent. The coach house was quite impressive itself. Positioned next to the RV site, the house has a kitchen/livingroom area, large bathroom and upstairs bedroom. We rented the coach house site so my parents could join us and stay in the house. The price listed in the maximum allowed. was for the coach house site. The hot tub/ fireplace site runs around $150/night. We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Ride your bike into the subdivision just west from the resort. At the back of the subdivision a concrete path leads to the biking/walking trails in Gulf State Park. This saves you from having to drive or ride several miles down the highway to the park's main entrance. Gulf State Park biking trails are awesome. Miles and miles of asphalt trails and wooden bridges.

This is truly an RV resort. Their website provides good directions. Pull up to gate house for entrance. Plenty of room to maneuver big rigs as they are designed to take Class A's and Super C's. We had a pull in site located towards the back of resort. The roads and site are made of pavers. Our site was close to level with plenty of patio space as well as grass. Green area to walk your dogs. The resort is fairly new, and therefore more sites are being added. The sites are owned, we rented. The outdoor pool has a lazy river, as well as a slide. There is a clubhouse and inside pool/hot tub. It was close to beach, and quiet. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The park is clean and well maintained. There are nature trails located close to resort, you can access right from resort. The laundry facility is planned for the future. We will be back!!

We rented lot 108 that had a private pool....we loved it!! It was so nice to have our own pool in the morning and evening, but still be able to use the indoor pool if we wanted to be out of the sun. It is beautifully landscaped and the lots have plenty of room. The water park isn't quite done yet... That will be a great feature once it's completed. It is in a very convenient location...close to the beach, the pier, gulf state park and lots of restraunts. We definitely plan on returning to this park in the future!

We purchased our lot -#19- 2 years ago with intentions of renting it out in the winter. That lasted 1 winter as my husband decided, with no argument from me, to retire & move here full time. We love the park, the location and the people are like family whether you've been here 2 days, 2 weeks, or 2 months. The only downside is that the outdoor pool/waterpark is not yet finished through no fault of Buena Vista's, but when it is finished in a week or two it's going to be beautiful and best of all, it's for park use only! As for the Internet, that seems to be a problem when the park is full, but that is soon to be rremedied with a new Internet provider. And we mustn't forget the fenced in dog park! It has 2 sides, 1 for small and the other for larger dogs. Our little Yorkie loves to run around & play in there. We have an event center which has an indoor salt water pool, hot tub and gym with 24 hr access. I'm happy we purchased when we did because soon these lots will be gone and/or out of our price range! This is definitely worth the investment or just the price of a few nights stay especially with all the specials we have going on! We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Thank you for the kind words Pam!

We're also very excited about the new waterpark being opened, but until then guests are still able to make use of our indoor pool and hot tub.

And thank you for the tip about the beach too, we're sure someone will find that very informative.

But what we're really glad about is the fact that you liked it so much, you decided to stay. Nothing says "I love this place!" more than deciding to stay!

Much of the park is still being built, but that does not take away from what is already here. Everything is being done to perfection. Wide lots done in brick pavers with nice lawns, pretty landscaping, decorative lighting for security at night. The park was nearly empty when we arrived so I imagine that is why they let us stay with our new, 40' 5th wheel even though the park is supposedly only for Class A and Super C vehicles. Highly recommend this park. Beware they charge an additional $10 per night "Resort Fee" and one-time $25 "cleaning fee" for our pet. The resort provides a good deal of information on local attractions, restaurants, etc. We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent three nights at Buena Vista RV Coastal RV Resort in space 15, a pull-in space facing the lake. Despite the very cold and windy weather, we found the park to be a great place to stay. The park was not even half-full over New Year's weekend. There is a very good indoor heated pool and fitness center. Our dogs enjoyed the two fenced dog runs (all-grass, no dirt or mud). Everyone we met couldn't have been nicer. They are under construction on a new phase of sites across the lake.

We would definitely return next time we are in Orange Beach. We camped at Buena Vista Coastal RV Resort in a Motorhome.
