3 Parks near Holt, Florida
Mar 2016 - $24.00
Blackwater River State Park is about 10 miles from the nearest I-10 exit and it is that far away from a full-up supermarket as well (Winn-Dixie in Holt, FL). But don't let that deter you from visiting this hidden gem. 30 full hookup sites (water/50 amp electric/sewer) are arranged in two loops, one of which has a spacious playground in the center instead of RV sites. Access roads are well paved and wide enough for the motorhomes of today. The sites themselves are level, spacious and designed with very generous buffer areas of natural vegetation between them. Surface is crushed rock which the campground host meticulously grooms for each new arrival. Cell phone service was a reliable 4G (not LTE) with a download speed of about 2.4 mhz, both AT&T and Verizon. No cable TV but good over-the-air digital channels from the major broadcast networks when the wind is calm. Breezy weather gets the tall trees swaying to and fro, disrupting the digital signals. I have no experience myself with satellite tv but I did note several campers going nuts trying to get a clear view of the southern sky. One that I talked to finally gave up while another fellow could get one satellite only. No laundry. Ice may be purchased about a mile outside the park gate. White sandy beach on the river is just a 3 or 4 minute walk from the campsites. No highway noise, no train noise, no loud parties but several times a day pairs of noisy helicopters from a nearby training facility pass overhead. The river usually flows at about 2 or 3 mph making it ideal for tubing, canoeing and kayaking as well as swimming from one of the many pure white sand bars. - KodiakHouse

This small park is a hidden treasure. The level, gravel sites are generously wide and full hook-ups were well maintained. Hiking trails were will marked and loaded with interesting views. The park is only about 45 minutes from The Emerald Coast, always worth the short drive. This would be our first choice whenever in this area. - the Fishers

We camped on site 19 which was a handicap site next to bathhouse. The total park is small, with a couple short hiking trails and swimming in the Blackwater River. It is quiet, in the middle of nowhere. Milton Florida is about a 20 minute drive where there is a Walmart. Most sites are a nice pea stone gravel and level. There is also a boat access. Just up the road you can rent a canoe or kayak. Be prepared to hear a lot of Air Force helicopters overhead, what I call "The Sound of Freedom." The camp host sells firewood and does a great job keeping the bath facilities clean. Although a nice park, I doubt we will return. - LeeMedic

Small park with large gravel pull-throughs. Everyone was friendly and the grounds were immaculate. Restrooms and laundromat were clean. We would stay there again. - Fletcher15

Very nice privately owned park. 60 open (great for satellite reception) gravel sites measuring 100' x 35'. Utilities well placed. No cable. Lots of grassy areas. Owners live on site. Wi-fi available for a charge. Picnic tables at each site. Right off I-10 and 1/2 mile from 90. About 10 miles from Crestview. Diesel fuel in Crestview was lower than regular. Paid 1.79 March 3, 2016. Very clean toilets, showers and laundry. Would definitely stay here again. Visited the Air Force armament museum near Shalimar. - Bill Healy

Stayed one night in a pull-through site with 30 Amp service since that was all that was available without reservations. Had to wait for attendant to come back from lunch. Friendly service. Sites are good, just sandy and gravel with lots of trees for shade. One bath house with one shower for use. Older place with clean facilities. No complaints for the price. - rvjubilee

I would best describe this park as a primitive park along a lovely river--then add full hookups. Long pull through sites--you don't have to unhook. All roads and sites are hard packed sand. 1/2 and 1/2 part time/full time. Great for one night. But if you want to sit by the river and relax, maybe more than one night. Verizon 2 bars. Spotty Att. Wifi is not good! - User3274

Price was good, and located only 1.5 miles off I-10. Park roads are hard pack sand, and the sites are sandy! No office staff was available upon arrival, but they left site information, and it was easy to find site. No amenities, located on river, covered with trees. Closest medium size town - Crestview - located 10 miles away. Pack food, or pick up some before heading in park. Was very quiet, but too primitive for our style. - KKColorado
