This small family-owned park is right next to the state highway, which can be noisy at times. This isn't unusual in our experience, and it didn't bother us too much. The owners live on-site and were very nice and easy to deal with. We only stayed a few days so we could join friends for Thanksgiving, and this was nearby and suited the purpose. The bathrooms were very clean, there were two complete bathrooms that were unisex. The Gulf is only about 16-20 miles away, and it looks like there's lots to explore in the area. We had a flat tire on our truck the last day which squashed our exploration plans, but if we come back to the area we'll plan on trying to book further ahead so we can get into the state parks on the water. No real negatives about this place in November, it suited our needs and was available fairly last-minute. I booked online and had my choice of sites at the time. There was enough room between us and our neighbors to play badminton - that's pretty spacious. We camped at Sapphire Island Camping & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Just north of the park in DeFuniak Springs is a place called 4C BBQ. Best hamburger ever - according to hubby. Really good food. Grocery across the street, pretty much whatever you need just 4 miles or so from the park.

CONS: - 1 out of 4 sides of the property faces a very busy highway (that is also under construction). You can hear the highway day and night. You can see the highway from anywhere in the campground. That was a major disappointment for us and took away from the 'camping' experience we were looking for. This campground is located RIGHT OFF THE SIDE OF A HIGHWAY and you should know this before making your reservation. - The campsites are VERY close together with zero buffer zone between sites. There are no trees/space between sites. This means no privacy. This means you see and hear everything everyone else is doing and saying your whole visit. Other campgrounds I have stayed at space the sites out more generously and have trees etc between sites to provide privacy. - No trees between sites means nowhere to hang a temporary clothesline to dry your gear, swim towels etc. - Nearly every camper had a dog (most had more than 1) so be forewarned that there are MANY dogs here (and they bark sometimes as dogs will do). This point is a pro for some and a con for others so I thought I'd point it out. - There were many kids. The sound and sight of children playing was everywhere (and continued past dark our first night). This point is a pro for some and a con for others so I thought I'd point it out. - ALL SITES are near the gravel road that goes through the campground. The sites are not set back from the road. So if you make the mistake that we made, and camp here using a tent, you will hear/see vehicles driving only a few feet from your tent throughout your stay. This place is more 'RV park' than campground. I would NOT recommend Sapphire Island for anyone seeking a peaceful, scenic, 'back-to-nature' camping experience. We regretted our choice. We visited 2 nearby state parks (Falling Waters & Florida Caverns) during our stay and both offer Ah-mazing camping experiences... we really regretted not having made our reservations at the state parks instead.

+ Cleanest bathrooms that I've ever seen at a campground. + The hosts allowed us to change our site upon arrival. + We were given complimentary fire wood first night. + Nice swing set for kids. + Fenced-in dog area. + Nice volley ball area (we didn't use it but looks like a nice set up). + 4 Lawn chairs provided in the field for sunbathing and stargazing. + The campground is clean and well maintained. + Nice fire pit at each site. + 3 out of 4 sides of the property are woodsy-looking. We camped at Sapphire Island Camping & RV Park in a Tent.
