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. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Motorhome.
If you want to go to the beach, then take a ride out to St. George Island, home of the 2 State parks. It takes about 30 minutes to get there by car and you access the island via a 7 miles long bridge (Bryant Patton Bridge / Rt. 300).

Campground clean, big lot easy to park (back-in). On Wednesday night they had a potluck, all campsites could come if they wanted. Had a lot of fun. The long term campers were so nice, funny and interesting. Only stayed 4 nights, will come back again for longer. The only small problem was the No see them flies. They liked us too much!

This is currently an RV park, however all the sites are for sale so perhaps after they are all sold this will become a private area only. The park has good roads. All the sites are back-ins with plenty of room except they are all on your blind side. The hook-ups are toward the rear of the site so you may need extra hoses. The water is good and the Wi-Fi worked fine. All sites have only 50 amp so if you need 30 amp be sure to have a reducer. There is only one rest room and shower that is actually connected to the pool. The directions are OK to get to the park, but the road is not marked with any type of RV sign. it is the turn just west of the bridge. The rate is Passport America.

A very nice will maintained friendly condo park. $48+ first night $24+ second night. Was not told Passport America was not valid on weekends when I made reservations. Not told extra charge for 50amp electric, or extra charge for cable TV. I was told I could keep my toad connected but they have no pull throughs. No bathhouse/restrooms and loud music at bar next to park on Saturday night. OK Sunday night. The park dog runs free. Very friendly but no one picks up after her. We would stay here again if just passing through but they need to quote the full price when reservations are made. Park deserves a higher rating but they need to be honest to get it.

Well maintained, quiet and clean home site park renting empty spaces until all are sold. Wide brick roads, wide, near level, gravel sites, no shade. Friendly staff, beautiful unheated pool; hot spa broken and no indication of repair work being scheduled. Internet had typical insufficient bandwidth, so it was inconsistent. Huge open areas for dog walking. No laundry. One and a half miles to Carrabelle Beach. PA rate. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Nice place and owner is very friendly and helpful. Sites are very spacious. Nice water views from the decks. Internet was good. Power was 50amp, but they supplied an adapter to 30amp. Nice seafood restaurant and lounge across the lane (easy walk about 300 yards). Grounds are well kept. Pool is nicely kept, but not heated. I would stay here again, hopefully for a longer stay. Rate shown was the weekend rate. Passport America rates available during weekdays. Most of the residents are longer term. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Nice park. Sites were to be sold but the market changed owners mind. Roomy sites, close to town, clean. Price reflects Passport America discount. Paver block roads and pads. We would stay here again. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Motorhome.Undo

A very nice park along Federal 98. Management could not have been nicer or more helpful. Our site (#47) was spacious & level packed sand/gravel with adequate access. Electric was 123 volts. We did not use park water or sewer hookups. The park was about ¼ occupied during out stay, and was very quiet. The only negative were dogs off leash and barking. Rate is Passport America with 50 amp electric. Tax not included. We'd stay here again. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Motorhome.Undo

We took our grandchildren camping at this park for spring break. The beach was only a mile away and the river was within walking distance. We took along kayaks and enjoyed the views along the river. Fishing was available off the docks. There are two swimming pools at this park, a deeper one for teens and adults and a more shallow on for the small children. A nice playground was also available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Several good restaurants were available in town. We definitely plan to return to this campground. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Not a bad park for the price. Quiet and picturesque setting near the water. Needs some minor maintenance. Price paid was Passport America rate which is good for full stay. Roomy sites. Wifi good except when Mediacom went out city wide. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Motorhome.Undo

Roads were nicely bricked, but sites were hard packed sand. Sites are being sold, so they haven't done much to improve them. Did not visit pool, restrooms or showers. Overall clean and quiet. Paid PA rate of $24 plus $3 for 50A plus tax. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The entrance and park road were impressive with the brick paving. The swimming pool looked very nice. The sites were nothing to get excited about. This may be because the sites are for sale and the new site owner can finish it the way they want. There were two park models but they had two entry doors in each one and I would assume they were renting out bedrooms. Dogs were not on a leash including the owner's dog. Unless you are there to fish there isn't much else else in Carrabelle. A better bet would be to stay around Apalachacola if you can. As previously stated Papa Joe's restaurant is excellent. St. George Island is also easily accessed from Apalachacola area. We stayed here on a Passport America rate. We won't stay here again. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Motorhome.Undo

At first sight, this looks like a great campground. The owner is super friendly. The paving-stone road around the sites, looks very appealing. Don’t be fooled. When we checked in we stressed that we needed a site with good Wi-Fi. We were offered a choice of two sites where, we were told, previous RVers had reported good service. When we pulled up to the first site and I went back to unhook our tow car, I found the owner on his knees, trying to undo the cable to the car. Fortunately, I stopped him before he caused any damage, but I was shocked that he would do that. There was no Wi-Fi at the first site, or at the second site. He then suggested we try a grassy site next to the entry, where the router is located. We had to gingerly step around two piles of dog excrement (dogs are permitted to run loose) and after getting all set up, we realized we didn’t have any electricity. Fortunately, I have a control system that prevented my RV from connecting. When we analyzed the problem, we found that one side of the 50-amp service had only 84 volts. Owner’s response was: “I thought we got that fixed.” Over an hour later we finally got settled into a fourth site. We paid the Passport rate of $24. For the same price you can park at one of two nearby state parks and walk to nearby beaches. There’s a lovely swimming pool and hot tub, but both are ice cold. Half the campground has never been developed and a large swimming pool in the middle of the undeveloped area is now derelict. When you leave, be sure to drive out through the entrance. The exit has a bush sticking halfway into the driveway and if you don’t run over the curb and up onto the grass, you’ll scratch the side of your rig.

This is a very nice campground, that is well kept and maintained. The fishing is great, and the Managers are very nice. It was too cold to get in the pool, but it was very clean. We have a great view of the river and the boat traffic. The access roads are beautiful brick pavers. And if you're in the area, please drive the 23 miles to Apalachicola, and eat the best fried oysters I've ever put in my mouth, at Papa Joe's Oyster Bar and Grill next to Scipio Creek Marina on Market Street. No wonder this is a favorite of locals. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Despite a few flaws, we enjoyed our stay here on the island setting RV Resort. The best I could detect and after talking to the owner, this seems to be a temporary RV Park. The sites are actually lots, for sale or sold, and currently existing as RV sites to support an economic operation. There is one Park Model in place. The access roads are high cost cobblestone pavement. Unfortunately, the sites are not like the access roads. They consist of crushed packed limestone and not so level. A big rig may sink through the pad surface. There is just grass and soft sand between the sites. Some sites are spacious and some are not so spacious. Some sites have a table and some sites do not. My laptop revealed there is no Wi-Fi here or anywhere nearby. Verizon 3G worked just fine. There is a terrific view of the bay and of the river. There is no access to the bay unless one ventures into the surrounding reeds. Like wise for the river unless the dock is used. There is a giant under heated pool and a spa that was not operational. There is not much here to support a daily price tag of 48.00. We got the Passport America rate, now good seven days a week, and there is an extra charge for electric use. For a better price there is a much better RV Resort three miles west of Carrabelle. So long as the daily price remains high we will not return. We camped at Sunset Isle RV & Yacht in a Motorhome.Undo
