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. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Short walk to beach. Fish House at 30th street great food.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Very quiet nice RV park. The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of 10 was we couldn't get DirecTV because of trees. Also, it rained really heavy for 2 days straight and our unit was in about 3" of water. They were good about putting a sump pump out at the 'lake' of water behind several units to drain it. Wooden picnic table was pretty old. The clubhouse is old and dated but clean. A lot of seasonal RVs here and people were really friendly. Enjoyed our 9 days stay here and would recommend it. We stayed in a 36' motorhome pulling a vehicle and there was room next to our unit to store our car dolly. A plus was the laundry facilities...dated but clean and large capacity washers that were only $1 a wash or dry...great! No big grocery stores nearby (nearest town is St. Joe) so stock up on food before you arrive here. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Passport America rate for 7 nights. There is no limit on how many nights you can use PA. Made this reservation eight months before arriving and was told we would have a pull-through site. We weren't sure how long we were going to stay, so they suggested to make reservation for a month and anything over two weeks and two days would be less expensive at monthly rate. We arrived on Sunday and office was closed. They left map for us with our site number. It was a back in site at the back of the park where we were squeezed in between a few other campers. Lots of old run down mobile homes in back of park. Roads are gravel and full of put holes. Sites are dirt and grass with some gravel here and there. Super dirty if it rains. After seeing where we were placed, we decided to only stay a week. First they tried to make us forfeit our $100 deposit for changing reservation even though they were the ones who suggested to make the reservation for a month. When we wouldn't accept that, they tried to charge us a $10 change fee. When we started arguing they didn't charge us any extra. What a rip off!! Looks like no money is put back into park. It was full during our stay over spring break. Most sites looked to have snowbirds who stayed for entire winter. Only saving grace to this place is it is only 1/2 mile from the beach. They did have a decent looking pool and a small tiki bar behind office with free entertainment two nights a week. Free Wi-Fi and cable did not work at our site. Very wooded so difficult if you have satellite TV. Restrooms were old and dingy, not very clean. Decent laundry room. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is based on being here for a month. The previous reviewer's comment about not staying here if it rains is one I concur with. Even with a modest rain, this place floods in a number of areas. Since you are parked on mostly fine sand and soil, when it rains, the sand and soil splash up onto your rig and anything else close to the ground so everything is very dirty when you prepare to leave. They do come along and fill the worst mud holes with gravel at times. The parking spaces need to be spread with gravel to make for a better stay here. The utilities were adequate. The tree coverage is very great here so we were not able to obtain a satellite for DirecTV but they do have cable TV at no additional cost. There is no recycling here at all. Be careful when you exit the park because you could bottom out; this could be corrected with the addition of gravel. The high point here is the Tiki bar which has pretty good food and drinks with great evening entertainment. We will not be staying here again in the future.

We camped at the first cul-de-sac as you enter the campground. Hosts are friendly and easy to find when you need them. Pros... good rates (monthly rate avg'd $18 per night) Passport America friendly too. Quiet and clean park. Cable was excellent. Pool and restaurant/bar was great! 5 blocks from the beach... easy bike ride. Cons... Laundry facility had many machines not working. But, $1 per machine for washers and dryers. Pool is not heated until the Spring season. Park does flood with heavy rain. Many sites can have standing water for a day. Wi-Fi was never working right at our part of the park but worked great near the office. All sites have sand pads and lots of trees. I love the Mexico Beach community. Tucan's is 5 blocks away but the campground bar and grill is excellent too. Gulf foods is a good grocery store nearby. Many gift shops and great fishing along the main drag. Beaches are white and wonderful. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here 2 nights on PPA. Office was closed so getting to the site (25) was a little confusing. No problem with satellite, roof mounted. Park is unpaved and sandy, but tolerable. Typical of most Fl unpaved parks and sites. Very clean pool and surrounding area. Short drive to the beach, gulf, and beautiful sunset. Overall, I would stay again although it is a bit of a drive from I-10, but then again, I enjoy driving the back roads seeing our great country.

The rate is Passport America. The owner is very friendly and tried to make my stay comfortable. There are plenty of trees, so many that I couldn't pull in a satellite signal. The park does have cable. Verizon cell and hot spot were strong. The parks Wi-Fi was strong in the morning, but weakened in the afternoon. The laundry room was clean and priced right. The biggest problem was rain that caused flooding throughout the park and not much to do in town if you can't go to the beach. The park has a tiki bar and live entertainment on Saturday, but since it was pretty wet I didn't go. I will try this park again if in the area, but leave immediately if it rains.

This place is fabulous; location, price and amenities are hard to beat. Half mile to the beach, but there is free and abundant beachfront parking which makes going to the beach so easy. Found a great seafood market with daily fresh fish, 20 minutes south. Pool is gorgeous and we loved it. Live music and a poolside bar & restaurant we didn't patronage but were pretty packed with people having a good old time! Sites are a bit tight and bathrooms are run down and not the cleanest. Even still, can't wait to return! We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.
