Park is pristine and well landscaped. Sites was level but way too small for large RV's. Could barely get truck in and could not walk past slides without walking on their mulch. Wifi is lousy. Cable selection is good. Utilities are fine except sewer connection is uphill from trailer. Beach is across the road. Would have given it top marks if sites were bigger. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We love this park, this was our second New Year's at this campground. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The store is well stocked. All of the sites are very nicely maintained. Cable and wifi are okay, hopefully they will update these. The beach is right across the street. We will stay here again. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Carabelle, they have great little shops and seafood.

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. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Beach. Short drive to nearby towns for shopping & dining.

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. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, across the street from the beach, 2 minute walk. Level, pull thru sites. Cement pads. Great stopover site when following the coast on 98. Arrived late both times and picked a spot, easily settle bill in the morning. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not alot around, small town has a couple restaurants, 2 Brothers is good food, and is the closest.

We had a great time at this park and plan to return. Our site was level and was next to the bathroom and pool. The water pressure is low and we experienced low voltage at the post for 30 amps. The park is highly maintained otherwise with a friendly staff. Plenty to do and see if you don't mind driving a short distance. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Saint George Island and hole in the wall restaurants nearby are good. Prices are low. Beach across the street was murky for a few days due to storms but cleared nicely before we left.

We came here to visit the beach. Park layout is unique, as stated by others. Our site slopes from the street side down to the curb side of the RV. We drove up on blocks on our curb side tires before using the hydraulic jacks to level or else the tires were hanging. The sewer requires 20' of hose. Water pressure is around 37 PSI at best. Any filtration devices you use will limit your water pressure inside. So, if you want a good shower, fill your fresh water tank and use it!

For us the size of the site was very adequate. We have a 29' class C with a trailer behind, about 45 in length. We had no problem navigating the park and had plenty of room on our site.

If you have a big rig, let the park know so they can get you in a site that will be easier for you. It can be tight in here, especially for the big fivers. They do have a new area next door that would be better for larger rigs, but you are farther away from the park's facilities.

The beach is okay. While here there was a lot of June grass so it was not at its best. We did visit St. George Island and the beaches there are a little more like the white sand beaches of the Destin FL area.

Daily rate of $42.95 plus tax (9%) or a weekly rate of $257.95, with tax came to $281.17, a little of $40 per night. Location, location, location!! We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring leveling blocks, even if you have jacks. You don't want your tires hanging unsupported.

This is a mixed review. The staff here is great. The streets and sites are paved BUT the streets are some of the narrowest I have seen. To compound that the park does not enforce trucks in front of the big fifth wheels being in the road. Also, there is only supposed to be a max 6 people per night, which is not enforced. Wi-Fi is spotty and cable has limited channels. If you are in a forty foot motorhome or larger you must be put in the section next to the main section. Those sites are angled and it will allow you better in and out. With a pickup in the site behind us it took a very long time for us to wiggle out. The pool is decent size and the beach is right across the road. There had been a lot of rain the water in the Gulf was brownish. While this is only 60 miles from Tallahassee plan on an hour and a half. The shopping is a small IGA and a Dollar General. This is really a park for families with young children so for that reason along with the problems of the roads we will not be back. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times and except for issues with our camper, not the parks fault, this is a great park across from the beach. Facilites are very good. Wifi went in and out somewhat but still worked well. Sites are all concrete . Have to watch some palm trees in the back of the site to position your slide outs correctly. Very nice landscaping, beach views from almost every site. Staff very helpful. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

2Al's restaurant is very close by good food, oyster baskets are great. We get take out from there every time we go. Nothing much to do in town but a very relaxing place to vacation with good fishing and beautiful beach.

Tarmac roads and concrete pads with patio and picnic table. Many sites are not level, a major factor for the lower mark along with the very poor water pressure, we were told it was to do with the pool cycle which maybe a factor but it needs to be fixed, it's a shame as it is a very good RV park. Good cable tv and excellent wifi although we were right by the mast at site 64, many thanks to Jen for that. Very nice pool and pool area and activities room with book exchange. Our other comment to the management apart from the water pressure is we disagree with the weekly rate pricing structure just because you are near the beach and keep an eye on the detail, the landscaping needs more attention, weeding etc. Your other sites at Live Oak and Catherine's Landing had much better maintained grounds. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A lovely RV park, right across the street from the Gulf Of Mexico right on Rt. 98. Very clean and all sites are cement pads and overall level. We stayed only one night on our way to Alabama at the end of snowbird season, so they were pretty full.

My complaint is this. They put us in their new lot, that was recently added to the facility, that has NO bath/shower building. The only bathroom and shower for the whole place is located behind the office in the middle of the property. It is a good 300 yards away, across the street, at the other end of the property from where they put us. I asked the girl at the front desk if there was a reason why they charged the same amount to be that far away from the "amenities" and she seemed put off that I would even suggest, as paying guest, I would even ask such a question.

She could have nipped this glitch in the bud, had she offered a small compensation for what I think is a major flaw. Who wants to have to drive to the bathroom when you're paying almost $50.00 a night? We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Beach directly across the street. Shopping near by in a nice small fishing town.

You're paying for the view and access to the Gulf. The park itself is new and clean. We stayed one night so therefore didn't use the laundry, so can't comment. However, our main complaint is that there is one bathhouse for the entire park which is situated behind the office and if you're unfortunate enough to get placed in a spot in the newly opened loop, like we were, it's a 300 foot walk to the restrooms. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Short walk across busy highway to a great beach.

This park is very clean and neat, has large concrete pads for your rig and the picnic table. Landscaping is also very nice and neat. Our negatives were for the closeness of the sites. They really pack them in here, and the roads are also very congested, no room for anything on the roadways.

We had a strong Verizon signal, but their own wi-fi signal is weak. Our biggest complaint was the very weak water pressure. It was so bad that I had to use their showers to wash my hair. The shower was small but fine once I figured out that the hot and cold controls were reversed! We would look at one of the other local RV parks the next time we come through here.

Nice park located directly across from the beach. Restrooms and showers are very clean. Garbage pickup is always nice. Due to a reservation screw up, probably my fault, they were still able to accommodate us, even at the height of their season. The wifi was good, but only worked for one of our computers. Access to sites is a little tight. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Wakulla Springs is a great side trip, especially the boat tour.
