5 Parks near Destin, Florida
Jan 2016 - $35.00
Camp Gulf is only one of three RV parks in Florida where you can park right in front of the beach and the entire park also have easy access to it. The other two are nowhere near as nice as this. The Destin beaches are the best in Florida!
Everyone is most accommodating from management on down to the workampers. If you want to enjoy the beach, this is the place to come!
Everything is very close by: groceries, shopping, places to walk and ride a bicycle, and awesome pizza across the street at Jordanos!
The concrete pads will large for your RV if you let the office know the size of your unit at the time of booking. The park has staff that work landscaping and site escort so it appears they work hard to keep the RV sites well maintained.
The park is easy to navigate as long as everyone parks where they should. We did have issues getting out of the park as the driveway has a steep drop to the road which scraped the skid plates of the RV. It looked like others had the same issue.
The services were adequate: water pressure of 40 psi or better depending on when the well cycled, strong on the electrical voltage, and no problems with the sewer other than it took us thirty-five feet of hose in our RV site. Other sites looked like this was not a problem. There was also cable TV service provided with many channels.
We stayed on the monthly rate. - Howard Jaros

PROS-It's rare to be so close to the white sand and beautiful emerald waters of the gulf. Our site was about 150 yards from the beach. You just can't beat walking from your RV and strolling up and down this wide beautiful beach. The park offers a variety of sites, from right on the beach, to sites in the sand with cement pads and a palm trees, to landscaped sites and no sand, the closure you are to the beach the more expensive. They have an outside pool and a covered one with a hot tub. Others have mentioned about the friendly and helpful staff, and they are. They have a gas fire pit for guest to gather in the evening. No problems with electricity or water pressure. They offer 69 cable channels.
CONS-Our site (608) was a bit tight for our size 5th wheel and parking our long-bed truck in this site was awkward. We had a wall in front of our site that made it necessary for us to jack knife our rig in which is always fun. Spaces starting just one space north of us didn't have the wall. They had sites that would have been better for our size fiver but this is their busy season, so book early. This site would be better for a shorter rig, or a short bed truck. During rain sites 608-609-610 flood, they moved us to another site but we will need to move again before our month is up. Wi-Fi was poor, had to use our hot spot for Internet most of the time.
WOULD WE STAY HERE AGAIN? Yes, the view of the Gulf makes this a come back place, but not in site 608 -- rate is based on staying for a month.
We stayed here in a 36 foot fifth wheel. - Traveler II

We arrived after sunset, but was greeted and escorted to our camp site by a employee. He was very helpful in helping me back in my "new to me" 40' motorhome into the space. Site was very level and easy to get into/out of. We stayed in the upper sites.
The park was very quiet and guests were friendly. We enjoyed the pool and hot tubs. Having the beach so close was wonderful, we did spend 1 day at the beach until the weather turned stormy. Lots of nice rigs. Very well kept landscaping. - W0GER

We were told that this was a very tight layout and that we would likely not be able to extend our awning. But that certainly wasn't the case. If you have a big rig, I'm sure you need to take your time navigating around the small circular campsite. And backing in for a large trailer or 5th wheel might be challenging. But we found rigs of all sizes and shapes, and in no case was anyone that close to one another. In addition to a spacious pad for your home on wheels, there is a separate concrete pad for you towed vehicle, and another for the patio and picnic table. You are less than 100' from the bay, and just 1 mile from the Destin "strip" (restaurants, souvenir shops, and bars). Even though the pools were closed for renovations, we will definitely go back again. Since there is a hotel and villas on site as well, it is an excellent spot for a gathering of military friends and family. Great FREE wifi, and clean baths, slower and laundry. - Ncw

Great price and good place to stay. Good electric. Close to everything. Nice and quite. Road is narrow but backed in OK. Nice concrete pads with lots of room. Military only beach down the street a few miles. Everyone was friendly. Would stay here again. - neilontheroad

This park is about a mile off the main drag thru Destin and is quiet, on the water, clean and most facilities worked fine. Watching the birds and boats on the water is great. WiFi only worked in the office. This park is not on a military base which probably accounts for the very close spacing. We have stayed at numerous military famcamps across the country and this one is not typical. While some sites are large enough to fit in a 40 ft motorhome, some are suitable only for a small travel trailer. Parking for towing or towed vehicles is also tight. We were barely able to get our 3/4 ton longbed off the street. Some had to be parked elsewhere. If you are adept at backing and parking your rig, it is OK. Not for beginners though. We would stay here again just for the waterfront and the great places to eat close by. - Bojangles

Wonderful park with easy beach access. We've VRBO both Miramar and Seaside for the last 5 years with our family spring break. With the kids off in college this year we decided to sneak down for an adult spring break. What a great time. Surrounded by Prevost, Newmar, Entegra, Super C's and the finest 5th wheel rigs we were a little out of our league with a 33' keystone. No matter, everyone was very helpful with our late arrival in a pouring rain. This property is managed by the same family that owns Days Inn next door. This group also owns beach frontage just left of the Surf Hut allowing for private access and a discount on chair and umbrella rentals. We soon learned drive over and park in the Surf Hut parking lot next to the private entrance. 10 steps up and 10 steps down to a rented chair and enjoy a cold drink and powder sand. Seriously, 10/10. - GoDawgs

We stayed here 2 nights en route to a longer stay in Florida. The resort has a scenic setting as it backs up to the bay. Sites are lengthy and interior roads are wide. Sites and surrounding borders are nicely landscaped. Access to the park is off Hwy 98 which is a very busy road, so turning in from the west could take awhile depending on traffic. Guests can use the pool and other services at the Ramada Inn across the highway. There is a pool on site but it is smaller and unheated. We would stay here again and camped here in a 42' motorhome. - gbburgess

Very nice small, quite park. Great location. Site was a little small for 43 ft. motorhome, but worked. Lots of landscaping on sites gives lots of privacy, but makes it inconvenient for door access on motorhomes. I have satellite dish and had no problem with reception. Excellent cable and WiFi. - Tom 573

We stayed here three nights and chose the park because it offered Passport America rates. At $60 a night rack rate, it would have seemed too expensive, since it offered no resort facilities; e.g. a pool, hot tub, clubhouse, etc. The park was immaculate, sites were perfectly level, staff professional and friendly. A good location for tourism in Destin and surrounds. It was so clean, I wanted to be outdoors most of the time. - MissMyGolden

Very friendly, helpful staff. Level concrete pad with ample room. Clean and well maintained. Quiet and peaceful, close to beach, but away from traffic. Good access from highway and within park. Would stay here again. - MSTraveler

Not sure how they believe they qualify as a "resort".
The site was very clean and the staff friendly but the sites are very close together. No pool. No games room. No entertainment.
IMO ,$70 for a parking space is excessive. - Chawkins

Our favorite campground in the Fl Panhandle. Sites are large and well landscaped. Very private. When in this SP you feel very secluded yet you're right in the middle of everything Destin has. Lots of room to walk the dogs, private beach on the Gulf. - theSkycop

Wonderful long, pull through site, although a little un-level. We had a mess up with Reserve America (our mistake--always check your reservation dates carefully--we didn't), so only able to stay one night. Rangers were very helpful giving a list of all other nearby parks with telephone numbers and called another state park for us. Hey, its February, everything is booked. Very private, large site with patio area with trees and bushes between the next site. Paved walkway right to the beautiful, white sand beach. Utilities worked fine, although no sewer at site, handy dump station on the way out. We would stay again. - starwind

What a nice state park and campground. Our only regret was having just 4 nights booked. We would stay again or live here if we could. Sites are great with plenty of room and a private feeling. We found the walk to the beach to be enjoyable and an opportunity to enjoy nature.
The bath and showers were very clean. There are laundry facilities which are convenient. The only quibble is the lack of wifi, however the Verizon signal was very good. - jtl2
