3 Parks near Carrabelle, Florida
Oct 2015 - $22.00
We stayed the month of Oct, 2015 at very peaceful Carrabelle Beach. Monthly rate of $649. + $50 elec. Excellent access (across the street) to the gulf waters behind the barrier islands of Dog and St. George Islands. White sand beaches, light waves.
Our site had a partial view of the gulf waters and was very nicely landscaped. Nice picnic table on a concrete patio.
Big rigs are often challenged with the space allocation. Toads or TV often are parked partially in the narrow drive lanes.
Cable reception was really poor. Staff checked it but no improvement. They indicated the problem was in our unit. The next time we hooked to cable after we left Carrabelle, we had a great picture.
The area is primarily fishing villages so the tourism factor is very low. All the accommodations for dining, groceries, bird and animal watching available within 10-45 minute drive.
The FL black bear is very active in the area. Trash receptacles are raided nightly. We have pics of a momma & 3 cubs in a restaurant dumpster at 3 PM.
We would stay here again. This is our second RVC Outdoors Destination. They have high standards. - D Curf

Beautiful park with beach across the road. Sites are pretty narrow & wasn't sure we would get our 40' fifth wheel in. Others had same issue. Laundry was very nice, pool was beautiful. Office & store were clean & well stocked, even sold beer & wine. - Hulda

Wow, haven't been here since 2009, they have put in cement pads, more landscaping, nice dog run, etc. Always has been a favorite of ours, our only disappointment is 2 Al's Restaurant has new owners with a new name, still remodeling and not open. Hope they keep the quirkiness and great seafood. - MN Snowbirds

The rate reflects ocean view. Was happy to pay the extra for front row seat of the ocean. The host were friendly and helpful. Called us when our mail came in early and held it for our arrival. Only negative was the laundry room, washers didn't fill properly. When in the area would stay again. Oceanfront sites are closer than the others, but didn't care. - gosee

Stayed over the Memorial Holiday weekend. Crowded but not congested. Sites are well-graded gravel and the "patio areas" are covered in small "pea" gravel. Plenty of room to maneuver between the pull-through rows. No shade except for the sites to the west of the office. The "premium sites" are along the shoreline and motor homes can be pulled straight in so the front looks out over the water. None of the electric panels have circuit breakers so the park recommends you "turn off power in the coach before plugging in". Not much beach area and the water has lots of sea grass so swimming isn't prime. There isn't much to do at the park if you don't fish off the pier, but it's close to the Apalachicola area and the East end of the Florida panhandle. - Good Vibes

If you can get one of the waterfront sites it is a good place to stay. If not on the water you are basically in a parking lot. The beach is not walkable at high tide but at low tide you can walk about 1/4 mile to the west of the park. The WiFi was so slow that it is of little use. - VtLee

Great place to put in a boat. No walking beach access. Pool was lovely and we spent a lot of time relaxing. Great spots for kids. A small playground would be a nice addition. Please bring bug spray as there are horrible attacking yellow flies! Loved the brick road. Kids were able to ride bikes all around. Staff was great !! - HeFFeR718

Loved the huge pool & cooking shack. Only 1 of the 2 pools were open during our stay however the one pool was big enough & wasn't crowded. The kids loved the little slide in the pool. Nice paved roads. Convenient location not too far from St. George Island. The only problem we had were the yellow flies and ants were bad. Came home with several bug bites. Would def. recommend this park and will stay there again when in the area. Beautiful park & area. Only the sites #49 & below have cable. So if you want cable on your site do not stay in lots 50 or above. We didn't know that when we initially arrived and had to change site numbers in order to obtain cable. We did so without any problems. Very friendly and helpful staff on duty. Would recommend this campground again. - N_GA_Familyof4

There are only a few RV parks to choose from when you drive up to and through the FL Panhandle on the scenic route on Rt. 98. We found Sunset Isle by chance when we were looking for a place to stay for a couple of nights. This RV park was not really meant to be because it is quite obvious that this was supposed to be a gated residential community once you enter the property and drive past the gate house. Wide brick pavered roads which now lead you to 27 full hookup RV sites. When we called to make our reservation and told them about our 45' RV, they were hesitant, stating they only had 2 sites large enough for us. Once we were on location and walked the park, we found that all but 1 site would easily accommodate a 45'. Our site was deep and wide enough to park our toad in front of the bus and our trailer right next to the bus. This is a very quiet park located adjacent to the Carrabelle River on Timber Island (about 1 mile off of Rt. 98). Everything is clean and well taken care of by the onsite manager. He also was kind enough to use his pickup truck to help with parking our trailer which had a problem with the dropleg. This RV park has a HUGE swimming pool. We had been to a 700 sites RV campground recently and their pool was less than half of the pool they have at Sunset Isle for 27 sites. While this is certainly a pool which was meant for a residential community, RV'ers do now benefit from it. There is a riverfront marina and a waterfront restaurant just a few steps away from the park. We checked out the marina which is large enough for large fishing boats. We did not try the restaurant but were told that it offers a good selection of fresh seafood. Sunset Isle is a hidden pearl and well worth a visit. We will visit here again and recommend this resort to our friends, too. - Olivia Las Vegas
