10 Parks near Defuniak Springs, Florida
Dec 2015 - $15.00
Very friendly staff, only a couple of nightly sites so calling would be smart to ensure a spot. I only saw 2 drive through sites and mine was long but this campground would be a better fit for smaller units, maybe less than 38 ft. Quiet setting and extremely well kept right on the lake. No sewer hook ups but they did have a dump station. Many long term rigs but it was neat and clean and well run. We will try to return and stay longer. Only a couple of easy driving miles off the freeway. - weighit

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

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

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 stayed here one night. Sites seemed fairly level, nothing too fancy, a little on the run down side. Owner showed us to our spot, and then left us alone. There seemed to be a lot of long termers there, but it was clean. An okay place for overnight. - Sid

OK for an overnight. It's just a place to park, but it felt safe. No cable and cash only. A lot of road noise near the office. - Libby

Great staff, poor Wifi, and friendly campers even with lots of seasonal campers. We pulled in with a slow leak on a truck tire. They pumped in enough air to get me the 8 and 1/2 miles into town and called to tell them I was coming. Found more damage than a slow leak so we put on two new rears which we were planning to do this in winter. We stayed 2 nights and they even sent someone to our sight the first night to see if we were okay and to let them know if we needed any more assistance. We will stop here again. - Mr. Camper

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

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

Very nice gated park on 2 lakes with small pool and a store. Gravel roads with wide level concrete pads. New bathrooms and laundry. Main activity is fishing. We were disappointed that there were no boat rentals as we had been promised. Had problem with barking dogs that were left tied outside all day. Owners were contacted but took all day to return and were allowed to stay. Would be better if rules were handed out at check-in rather than "upon request" to avoid this issue. Sites are very close and can be back-in or pull-in (for the lake view) which means you may be nose-to-nose with your neighbor. - IntrepidCampers

As the previous reviewer stated this place is being totally renovated. We had a beautiful site directly on the water. At his time there are about 17 site with more opening soon. It is about 10 miles from Rt10. - Fluffy 41

We stayed at Twin Lakes for a couple of days. The park is currently under renovation, and once it is done, it will be a wonderful place to be. Right on the lake shore, quiet and tranquil. The concrete pads are wide and level, with all new electric, water, and sewer system in place. Club house and pool is done, but the toilet and shower facilities are not yet finished. - Jensvilhelm

Great little overnight spot if you are in the area. They have a few big rig friendly sites and you do. To have to unhook your car. Owner has you call when you get off the freeway and she gives directions and mets you outside the campground. Then takes you to your spot and ensures you get level. Right on lake and you can sit on deck and enjoy the water. - Buspuppies

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

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

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
Apr 2016 - $24.00
Rate based on month stay. Wonderful park - live oaks and Spanish moss.
Best Wi-Fi we have ever found in 11 years of rving .
Very friendly staff who are always busy cleaning, picking up trash or doing something. They never seem to stop.
Nice sized sites - plenty of room for our slides on both sides.
Planning on coming back next year for another month. - justbob47

72 sites, 18 of those are cottages, the rest are RV sites. The RV sites are around $43/night. The cottages range from $100-160/night. There are pull-through sites, as well as back-in sites. The website says they have waterfront sites, however I should warn that there is a road between you and the water. Not truly waterfront in my personal opinion. I suggest the back-in sites along the dog park area. There's lot of space for hanging out behind the trailers, which is awesome, especially for those that have kids or pets! There's some good trees which provide great shade in the hot Florida sun. The cottages were adorable and had enough space for a family of 4. They have a great little playground across from the pool and next to the clubhouse. The pool is screened in and is a nice size with a pool deck overlooking the water. They have some nice walking trails around the park, as well as a gazebo off the water. They rent canoes, kayaks, and fishing boats. This is probably one of my only critiques for this campground: The rentals are pretty pricey compared to other campgrounds we've stayed in. It's about $15-$20/hour to rent one of these boats. That's about double what we paid for our last canoeing adventure. Needless to say, we didn't rent one this time around. The campground is on the water, so you can bring a boat (which a lot of people did) or just a fishing pole! There are alligators in the water, so swimming only happens in the pool here. The kids had plenty to do between the playground, pool, and just exploring around. Kids and pets were everywhere, it was awesome! The dog park is a nice size, well maintained, and fenced in. I would highly recommend this campground! - C est La Vie Three

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

This place was not clean and very noisy. We were looking for a relaxing vacation and this place was anything but. Owners were rude and unfriendly. - Ron and Amy

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

I gave a satisfactory rating because the park is in transition from state to city and there are some maintenance issues because of it. State has pulled out the laundry facilities and slacked off on maintenance. Lake side sites were $35 while across the road were $28. All sites have water & electric, level and tree lined. Our B was the smallest camper there, about 4 other sites had 5'ers, all other sites were empty. 28 total sites. We had a beautiful lakefront site. Hope this park doesn't fall into disrepair. - garmp

Great State Park on Lake Jackson. Awesome views, great lake for kayaking. Sites are dirt and gravel, somewhat level, lots of trees and moss. Bath house nice and clean. Sites are close with a few pull-thru. Stayed in a 40 ft Motor Home. Will stay again. - gleLOAL

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

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
