Very expensive for what we got. Would have been OK if in the back overlooking the bay but we were looking out at the highway & right next to a parking lot of a bar & restaurant. VERY loud music from the bar audible until 2 or 3 AM. Water pressure was horrible-just a trickle in the shower. They sent a man to check it but he said it was fine. Could be a nice place if you're in a decent spot. We were told we got the last available site when we reserved months in advance & yet there were many openings the entire time we were there. It was to much trouble to move for 2 nights. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We stayed at this park for one night as an evaluation for a longer stay this summer. The park was super clean. It is in a great location for walking to shops, restaurants, the beach, and a gulf fishing pier. We did not experience the loud noises as others reported even though we were there on a Saturday night during spring break season. The park is pricey. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the walkway over the busy highway.

Layout of sites is well planned out. More restroom and showers are needed (only 2 per gender). Also the laundry only has 2 machines. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Park is on Okaloosa Island so backs up to the bay on one side and across the street is the white sands of the Gulf. Each site is concrete with patio pavers and picnic table. WiFi and cable tv both have good reception. Park enjoys all the amenities of the Ramada Inn (which is on the gulf) across the street, including large pools, hot tubs and well equipped fitness room. Located right on Hwy 98 so best spots are towards rear of park. Sometimes have to wait for traffic to get across road to get to beach, but typically not a real problem. If laundry room is in use, can use laundry at Ramada across street. The availability of the Ramada was a definite plus. I note they are raising their monthly rates markedly for next year (+$200) and daily rates are increasing as well (+$10). Lots to do in Destin. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this park and actually ended up extending our time here. The park is not too large and all pads are spacious with pavers, newer square picnic table w/umbrella and well maintained landscaping. The maintenance person is always around working and trash pick up at site throughout the day. Staff and fellow campers all very friendly; a great vibe at this park. We pulled in forward with our outside living space facing the bay. There are a few spots that are right on the bay, but they were already taken, but even being a few spots back did not matter. The pool area was very nice and overlooked the bay. The weather was chilly while we were there, so we did not use it. It was nice to have the reciprocal with the Ramada across the street. Almost every day, we walked over and used their beachfront. In the summer months, use of their pool facilities would be a huge plus. WiFi was excellent and satellite was no problem. Destin was a short few miles away. We will definitely return to this park and would highly recommend it. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

McGuires Irish Pub in Destin is a must.

Destin West is actually in Fort Walton Beach right on the Bay, literally ten minutes outside of Destin proper. This turned out to be a huge plus due to traffic. This resort is all paved with extremely level pads. The pads are actually cobblestone. We didn't need to put our jacks down at all, but we do just to have the additional stability. They hit the pad, and we were done. There are no pull-throughs here, but they do have pull-ins. We had one that when we raised the front shade, we were looking at boats and water (site 10). The hookups are well maintained. The cable TV had over 100 channels. There is a pool with a nice shower and bathroom. On Friday night they set up a screen for a swim up movie. Lounging there you are looking right out at the water. However, there is only one restroom each for men and women that I know of. There may be a bathroom and shower in the front office, so you may want to confirm if that is a need. If you are a large family who really needs the additional facilities that could be an issue. A cobblestone/paved path surround the park for walking which is very nice. We would walk it each morning with the dogs and stop to look into the bay to count the crabs and creatures we saw swimming about. We saw dolphins on one of our morning walks right from the resort. Doggie bags and trashcans are positioned throughout. There is a small private beach as well, but the horrible storm the week before still had it submerged. One site has an unobstructed view, but everyone going to the beach would have to pass it (site 39). There are a couple of unique features to this resort which you may or may not like. First, there is a gate right from the walking path which links the resort to Fuddpuckers, a family friendly arcade/beach bar/ grill right next door! Great views. You can rent watersports here, and we took a pontoon up to Crab Island. Fuddpucker's does have live music on the weekend, so if you are looking for real quiet this may not be for you. However, I am a fairly light sleeper, and I didn't have a problem at all. Also, when you stay here you have access to all the Ramada resort offers across the street. Access is challenging due to traffic, but there is an elevated crosswalk. There are more restaurants, pools, beach and a swim up bar. We will go back. I only have a few dings. The Wi-Fi is spotty at best. We used our phones as hotspots most of the time. The good thing is, unlike many RV resorts, there was no additional fee for the Internet. They have one very clean BBQ grill, but I think for this price each site should have their own. They need larger trashcans as well. Regular size trash bags won't fit. You must use grocery bags. For this price point, most places have valet trash pick up. The maintenance men come around on golf carts several times a day, so it wouldn't be difficult to add this feature. All in all, this was one of the best RV vacations we have had. We are already planning to make this an annual trip. The best deal is to stay for a week with a Sam's club discount. We actually added one more day, and, with tax, it came up to $109. But, you get what you pay for, and I would call this a high-end park. One point to note, on the web site, they say it is restricted to Class A, Class C, and fifth wheels. That was not the case when we were there so still consider it if you have a travel trailer. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 4 nights for spring break. As stated by others, the facilities were beautiful and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. Heated pool was great as weather was a bit cool. Location was good for accessing restaurants and stores. However the small bathhouse was not compatible with our family's needs. We have 6 in our party so we need access to facilities. Bathhouse had only one shower that was also a restroom. In addition, code to get in bathhouse was long and complex. Made access difficult. Beach at Ramada was very nice as were pools. However access was challenging. Road was too dangerous to cross. Pedway over street was nice but had to walk through area with no sidewalks to get to it. Overall nice place but not best fit for our family. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This place looks good but what you don't see can be really bad. There is a bar within 70 feet of the RV sites that has bands on Fri, Sat & Sun nights from 9 pm to 1:30 am. Sleep impossible. Also one of the office staff very rude. Told me when I complained about the poor WIFI that it was the customers fault for having to many gadgets. Also when I complained about the music I was told that it was a resort area and I should expect. The sad news was that the office person told me that the owner of the park was part owner of the bar and knew how loud the music is. And, the big deal about the Ramada was worthless. The pool was not heated and right next to the Ramada is a great public beach with ample parking. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The park is immaculate and the staff and other campers are extremely friendly. Their top priority is upkeep of the property. However, the downside for us (and maybe you can take this as a warning), the bars have activities and live bands planned every night of the week that have very high levels of bass that thump all night. Sat and Sun till 4am and weekdays till 1am. I had to buy earplugs to fall asleep. If this does not bother you please disregard and enjoy a very nice campground.

Rate reflects monthly fee/discount. Well designed park. Facilities work and maintained as expected. Good maneuverability for big rigs. Sites very comfortably spaced. No shade (not a concern for us in the winter). Nice location. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We are here for 2 months and have been extremely happy here except for the weather. Previous reviews are accurate with not much to add but confirm their accuracy. The staff here is excellent which helped us to make up our mind to re-up for 2015. Only problem is that I will go home with a few extra pounds as the area has no shortage of great restaurants. Our rate was computed using our monthly rate of $650 which includes electricity. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an exceptionally well-maintained resort! The staff is awesome in all the important areas: friendly, courteous, helpful, attentive, and go the extra mile. They pick up garbage at your site any time of day up to around 4:30. They hand deliver mail to your door! They can be seen walking around the resort tidying up all day long. At our site, electrical power was good. Water pressure maxed out at 40 PSI. Would have liked for it to be a little better. Wi-Fi is spotty at times. Noise from Hwy 98 (Miracle Strip Pkwy) can be heard at all hours of the day. Not too bad, though. Fudpucker's restaurant is next door and there is a fence walk-through from the resort. Guests are allowed to use the Ramada across the street for beach access, exercise room, etc. The only downside is the exercise equipment is dated and in poor shape. The biggest problem with the sites is the location of the pad with the picnic table. On many sites we saw, the pad is not where the RV awnings are, rather, placed more toward the front of the site. When you back all the way into the site, the pad is now at the front of your RV. Not useful if you want to sit out under your awning. When you exit your RV you step right into wood chips. There's not enough area to place your chairs under the awning. This is a poor design. Big rig friendly. The largest of RVs can easily maneuver here. Paved road and all sites are decorative brick and level. No shade but nicely landscaped. Heated pool is kept warm in winter. We really enjoyed out stay and will be back when visiting this area. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is very well maintained with clean restrooms and showers. The pool is heated with plenty of chairs and loungers. You even get access to the Ramada across the street which had several pools, hot tub, exercise room and beach access. There are weekly movies at the pool. It is within a mile of supermarkets and close to everything else. The only downfall is the Wi-Fi. We were within 20' of the antenna and could not connect. We had to walk to the office to get a good connection. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.
