This was the 4th or 5th time we have stayed. It is one of our favorite places to camp in Florida. Yep, lots of "issues" to consider that could cause you to move on: small number of showers, some needing fixed (most folks have facilities on board), sand/grass areas (you're "camping" in a "rustic" area), no cable (but reasonable over the air reception), crowded (hmm, that may be a problem.) In the years we have been coming, we have seen more sites developed, more folks coming, and more amenities provided (Tiki bar, heated pool, good laundry) and have enjoyed the folks we met. Seems their busy season has increased from mostly summer shoulder folks (Spring/Fall) to almost all year long. Only complaint this time was we asked for two sites (friends along for first time in van camper) and when we got there, those sites were taken and we were separated. We enjoy the ambiance and will be back. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

SO many good places to eat!! Go into Port St. Joe and visit No Name Cafe and book store. Great coffee and snacks and reasonable collection of books and tourist trinkets. We try to visit each time we are there. If you want to fix your own fish while camping, go to the Shell Shack in Mexico Beach for scallops or fish. Really tasty.

Really like the woodsy look and our site had plenty of room. Quiet with no road noise. Have a little restaurant open Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. The pizza is good. Friendly managers and easily accessible. We will be back.

(Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was gravel/dirt and featured a picnic table.) We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had reservations to stay for two nights. We were assigned a sight based on the size of our RV - 39 feet. The site, #58 was the only one they had that would fit our rig. On arriving at the site we noticed the neighboring site had their Direct TV dish sitting slightly inside the area of our site.

We backed in and got all set up. Unfortunately we had to block their dish from it's reception. They asked us to move (about 3 hours after we got all set up) but we could not due to a tree and tree stump that was about 2 feet from our other side.

We decided to leave after one night.

The park has mostly (95%) long term tenants this time of the year. There were only 2 sites available. Some long terms need to clean up their sites - lots of stuff sitting around.

For the price with our Passport America it was an OK place. Not something I would want to stay in for more than a couple of nights though. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

First camping space assigned was too small. Supposed to be a pull-through. Couldn't open awning or slides without hitting other campers. Next day they move me to a back-in space which was fine. Good cable at the second site. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is very "Rustic". We are in a MH so we really don't use the Restrooms or the showers. We had a pull thru site, level and hooks where handy. Owners seemed very nice and let us use there own washer and dry while they did some work on the other machines. We stayed 3 nights and will stay again. Rate is PPA rate. (They make a good pizza.)

I amon the fence on thiss one. The campground was okay but looking old. There currently is no cable tv. They say it is being fixed but has been down for weeks. There was a non-working shower and they were in no rush to repair it. One full-timer in a park model was cussing at the football game on tv and it could be heard in the whole park. Another park model owner kids were contantly letting their dog escape and chasing it thru the park. Good location and no road noise. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, large site, but it rained and then it was as if we were parked in the center of a lake. This place floods fast and the water recedes slowly. Staff is very friendly. They seem to have a lot of extended stays at this campground/trailer park. No discount was offered because it was their 'season'. Because of that, we felt the price was too high. Park is a little run down and doesn't appear very clean. Office smells like cigarettes. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

God bless the person who disconnected our power! We are grateful!

As for the park it needs some maintenance. They are working on it, but seems to be a little too late. Our site was supposed to be a deluxe pull thru. Could not open awning all the way. Dead tree about six feet from our front door. Lots of permanent residents and snowbirds. If you like the beach and your only option is to camp this is probably the best place near Mexico Beach.

Daily rate is $27 after taxes with Passport America. Full hookups with a good cable lineup and wi-fi that was mostly good, it did get slow at times. Mexico Beach remains one of our favorite stopping spots along the panhandle. We had a nice wide back in site in the second loop coming in. Very hard to get through on the phone, we left a message and ended up just coming in. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For a great beach experience, head west just out of town to Crooked Island Rd on the left. It is just past mm 140 appx. a half mile after the speed limit goes up to 60 mph. It is a day use area on Tyndall AFB that is open to the public.

Best bet for a cold one is the Lookout Lounge, happy hour M - F, 5 - 7 ET (4 - 6 CT where Rustic Sands is). Nice sunsets can be seen from the deck.

Well first off, be careful coming into the park, its on a slope, so if you are a big rig, it tends to twist your RV a bit, the main road is banked the opposite from the park entrance. The park itself is quite clean , a bit rough about the edges but they seem to be trying to clean it up a bit. They have a Tiki bar on Tues and Sat nights with entertainment, which was nice. The pool was heated, but a bit on the small size. The beach is less than a mile from the park. Some of the sites are on the narrow side, just enough for a picnic bench ,some are wider, site #35 was a pull through but narrow. Internet was OK, cable has limited channels. We stayed here twice in April because of the close proximity to the beach. We will stay here again. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Beach is 1 Km from the park, quite a few places to eat, the pier at the beach is nice for fishing. Port St Joe is 10 miles away, has a nice shopping area there.

Pretty, wooded park, mostly retirees and snow birds, friendly.

No really a resort , but some activities on weekends. Mexico Beach nearby is a big plus. We had some space as site next to us empty, otherwise room to maneuver but RV on each side. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a couple of blocks from the beach - about a 15 minute walk. It is a quiet park with a mixture of fulltime MH's and snowbirds. The park is nothing fancy but it has a friendly vibe to it. It is heavily wooded with pine trees and the lots require a bit of leveling. Wifi worked fine as did the cable. We didn't use the restrooms and this is one area that could be upgraded.

We stayed 3 nights and would recommend the park. Good location and good value. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Tuesdays and Saturdays they have live entertainment consisting of a saxophonist and a guitar player/singer. They are quite good and we enjoyed the evening. Happy hour with cheap wine and beer prices. We had the food but would not recommend it, however the entertainment was great.

This is a nice park off the main road. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. The sites are reasonably level and plenty long enough. The hook ups are centrally located. The WiFi is OK and the cable has plenty of channels and good reception. There are several trees so you need to take some extra time parking to ensure your slides/awning will open. The owners are on site and very helpful with direction and information. On Sat. they have their tiki bar and cafe open with typical bar food. We would stay here again. The rate is PA.

This is a pretty nice campground. Good location from beach, good Wi-Fi, good power hookup, very friendly and helpful staff with a nice little store and rec room, and a very nice pool. On the other hand, there are small sites, office and store closes at 4:00 PM, a significant number of long term residents, the bathrooms were clean but very small and very dark, very dated and old. If I am back in this area in the future I would consider staying here again. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a fairly nice park in a residentual area of Mexico Beach. The access road is excellent, but a bit rough in spots. The office is quite a ways into the park and doesn't have a lot of room to park when registering. My site was good sized and all the hook-ups worked as they were supposed to, except the free cable TV. The sites are sand, as is the whole park. There were reports of a bear wandering around in the park and getting into garbage. I didn't see it though. They have a cafe/bar on site, and there is live music on the week-ends. They also have a campfire going on Friday and Saturday nights. All in all, I would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.
