We stayed in our 45'. Some sites are tight in a big rig I noticed some areas where awnings were touching. 606 was easy with a drive area directly opposite for easy in and out. We did not want to be directly in the sand, the walk was 5 minutes to the ocean. Wifi was poor at the site but fine in the clubhouse. Tons of kids and activities to keep them busy. Wood picnic table on site. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

1/2 mile walk to great outlet center.

We really liked this campground. We did have Good Sam discount for the non-holiday nights we were there. We were on a beach site, which was basically 2nd row. The beach is beautiful, with white sand and blue-green clear water like in the Caribbean. Apparently beaches are private in Destin, so the beach section for the campground is not very big. However, there is so much beach between the ocean and the beach front sites, that it never got crowded, and the campground was full while we were there (week before Easter). Could not really get wi-fi, but I was told at check-in it would be best at the office due to the campground being full. The air and ocean temps were slightly chilly still, but otherwise the weather was beautiful. Campground was easy to maneuver through in our 40' motorhome. There is a big dip at the exit, and we did scrape leaving. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

If you are a beach freak, this is the campground for you! If you're not, but in the Destin area, this is the campground for you! We had a spot off the beach, but it was a short walk to the beach and I mean right on the beach. Super friendly staff, always willing to help, even when we had some electrical issues with the electric post. We called and they were there literally before we could hang up the phone. Fixed it in a jiffy and we had power again. A little pricy, but worth the money. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in a cabin in early April. It was a small one bedroom unit- clean and tidy. It had a fully functional kitchen, stocked with all the necessary cooking essentials. Included a dishwasher which was very nice. One bathroom which was rather small but clean and fully usable. Bed linens were provided- the bed seemed to be a queen or full at least. There was a sleeping loft above the bedroom where the children slept. The wooden ladder was very steep and not suitable for very young children. No railing or protective barrier to prevent someone from falling off the edge so kids need to be old enough to be safe. There were some foam sleeping pads provided plus linens in the loft which made things nicer for the kids. There were no night stands or clothing storage options in the loft. An adult cannot fully stand up in the loft. It was hot at night- an oscillating fan would be good improvement. Opening the small windows up there greatly improved the conditions by allowing cross ventilation. The single bedroom was small and didn't have a dresser for storage but did have a nice bureau which accommodated hanging-up clothes. Not that you typically being many dress clothes to the beach. The outdoor pool closer to the ocean was open and quite nice, but the water was still very cold. The pool closer to the main road was still covered by an inflatable structure- it kept the water temp up but also trapped in the chloride and heat. Felt like a sauna in there. Kids liked it but massively unpleasant for audits. The kids enjoyed the smallish playground and liked to ride their bikes around the complex. It's definitely not the largest complex but backs right up to the ocean. The rec room seemed a little tired and dated. During the summer season, activities are offered for the children. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Cabin.

We stayed here for Spring Break in a Hybrid with our family and we really enjoyed it. The employees are very helpful and pleasant, the 2 pools were very clean, the bath houses and showers were clean and nice. The site was perfectly level. The beach was beautiful. The other campers were generally families, it was a great environment for kids, the speed limit in the campground is taken seriously and there are kids everywhere. Highly recommend this for a family. The front row sites are the best of course and the sites on the East side are shaded and nice. We stayed in 608 which was fine. The only reason I wouldn't give a 10 is that the sites are very close together, which is to be expected on prime beach property. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Some of the sites on the opposite side, around 523, were lovely and shaded with small lawns. Book early if you want a front row site. Don't miss Jordano's Pizza, they deliver right to the camper and it was delicious!

This is an absolutely beautiful RV park that also provides a few lovely cabins. The park sits right on the beach along what is known as "the Emerald Coast". The sand is pure white and soft and the ocean is emerald green amazingly clear water. There are sand bars offshore so the surf is very manageable. The park offers the upper area which is heavily tree'd and the lower area which is on sand. There are many amenities - being there is February we really enjoyed the covered heated pool and spa. The park offers many activities for the campers which were all fun and gave us an opportunity to make friends. The sites are long, wide and concrete with picnic tables. The upper area seems to be primarily for medium to small RVs and the large RV's seem to at the lower area. Our site was spacious with plenty of room to put out our slides and awning. Access to the park off the street is very easy. And the roads within the park made pulling in and out quite easy. A member of staff takes you to your site upon check-in and helps you get in to your site, if you need the help. Members of staff are working on the park every day all and are very very friendly and helpful. Good cell phone coverage, good cable TV. WiFi was adequate for checking email but not for doing business. There are many many restaurants and shopping very close by. We cannot wait to go back. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Fifth Wheel.

Expensive beach site with very little space around your RV. Wi-Fi is hit and miss, mostly miss. Can't beat the beach. Water is great and you are parked on the sand. Get a golf cart. Friendly staff and a variety of sites if you want more space and less sand. Shopping, restaurants, tourist things in area if you want. Pools were great. Had 9 people, ages 2-67 with all having a great time. Expensive and not perfect, but for us, well worth it. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

We found the beautiful Website misleading. This campground was disheveled and neglected looking the minute we drove in. Weeds everywhere and no landscaping attention anywhere on sites with grass. We actually wanted a Beach Front site but local regulations prohibit dogs anywhere near the beach even if you don’t walk your dog on the beach. The Office will not rent you a Beach Front site if you have a dog. OK, not a problem. The Office assigned us to a shaded site near the entrance. The site obviously had not been cleaned up in a long time. Banana peels, cigarette butts and animal bones simply tossed around the site and the pool looked like “Polio Pond.” I called the office from our motor coach and complained. They said they would send down someone to clean up the area. I told them not to bother because we are leaving now and I wanted a full refund. I didn’t wait to hear their spiel about refunds over the phone. I drove our coach up to the Exit and went into the Office. The Manager wasn’t too happy about refunding all of our money but eventually did after giving me a difficult time. Save Your Money! We found a better RV resort just one mile away! We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Holiday weekend rate. Nice CG with some sites directly beach front. These sites are no pets or sewer (daily dump wagon for a fee). All others have sewer and pets are allowed. Our site was in the upper park area which wasn't near the beach, but was a short walk through the beach sites to the beach. The rates are tiered - Beach front, beach sites, upper park, north upper park. Of course the beach front are the most expensive. If you want absolute beach, then choose beach front. Some beach sites will have a view, but a lot of them don't. There is no shade or privacy, and sites are closer together. In the upper park section there are trees with some sites having nice shade. There are also hedges between some sites for privacy. This area felt more "nestled". All sites are concrete, except the beach front appear to be sand. Ours was very level. The Wi-Fi could be frustrating at times and work well at other times. We didn't use their cable )used our satellite) but they have a lot of channels. They have a lot of workers who are helpful and friendly, with check-in being a breeze. They escort you to your site. A bit pricey, but other than the state parks, this is pretty much it this close to the beach without having to cross the road. We would stay here again. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Great but very expensive park. Sites are tight but staff does a great job of guiding you to your site and backing you in. Front desk staff is good but they need to look up and look you in the eye. Destin had almost 20 inches of rain while there which flooded all the beach area sites. It seems management could have had a better plan to get rid of all the water. They had no plan. Needed many more pumps and hoses. Maybe there was no place to get rid of the water. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Stayed here over spring break. LOVED IT!. Pricey campground but well worth it. Not only is the beach beautiful, but the facilities and pools were wonderful. Staff was great. Led us to our site and helped us in. The campground was crowded, but I was amazed that the facilities were as clean as they were, given the high volume and use. There were activities for kids and adults alike. We took advantage of these extras because weather did not cooperate for the week we were there. My only concern would be the Wi-Fi. We were kicked off constantly and could not remain connected for longer than one minute. We will definitely return, but would not plan on a 'beach front' site. This is a high traffic area. Although the beach is pristine and the sunsets are spectacular, the entire campground walks by your RV to access the beach. We plan to return again. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

The price reflects the monthly rate. This is a beautiful campground. Lots to do, both at the campground and in the area. There are pot luck dinners, campfires on the beach, watercolor classes, and water aerobics in the indoor pool. There are so many things going on it's hard to list all of them. And the beach: white sand, clear blue/green water, and beautiful sunsets. You wouldn't believe how nice the bathroom/showers and laundry are. I expected the laundry to be expensive, but was pleasantly surprised to find the regular-size washers are only $1.50, the extra large washers are $4, and the dryers are 25¢ for 6 minutes. We made lots of friends here. This park is wonderful. There are sites of all sizes. Some are small, others large. Some are wide, others are narrow. Whatever size RV you have, there's a site for it at this campground. Did I say campground? This is a resort. The only negative is that it’s hard to get out of this campground because to go west on Rt. 98 you have to cross several lanes of traffic. We would definitely return. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

We are staying a month ($1,008). Very nice park with workers everywhere to answer questions, and help you in any way they can. Park is well groomed, offers inside pool and outside pool, as well as activities and activity room. Well groomed lots, where you can choose how close to the Gulf you want to be (Including sites right on the beach). Definitely worth the money! We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

The good: love the waterfront availability. As they say on their slogan, you can't get any closer. Lots of snowbirds on the upper park and mostly shorter term on the lower. As would be expected, very close quarters. Stayed a week in a site two off from the ocean. Weather was so-so but not the park's fault at all. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants and all the Destin action. Cable TV was great! The bad: WiFi was horrible. On one minute and off the next. They indicated a password was required but never prompted for one? Very discourteous campers that fired up the diesels early (5:30 am) for a half hour prior to leaving. Isn't this a violation of "quiet hours?" Again, not the campground's fault. All in all, liked our stay. Staff was ok but not super friendly. Price was high as would be expected for the location. Would stay here again but would look at other locations also in the Gulf area. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Tent Trailer.
