This is a military campground for active duty and retired. Very convenient facility. We were visiting friends in the Niceville area and this was perfect. Roomy sites. The campground itself is pretty dated. The sites are mostly level and are primarily sand with some gravel. Very nice water views from most all sites of the Bay. The WiFii was probably the best I have ever encountered at an RV park. Cable at all sites. Many of the sites of trees in the way of getting a satellite to lock on. The restrooms and laundry were clean and very usable, we did some laundry here. Be sure and follow the directions from this site and follow the brown signs and it is easy to find. If you come up from Destin be prepared to pay a $4.00 toll plus $4.00 for every axle over 2. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mid Bay Shores Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Fantastic park with big open sites and a view of the bay. Can walk right down to the beach from the RV for a little beach combing. However, I would not recommend swimming in the bay. While each RV site did not have its own fire ring, there were numerous fire rings near the beach. There is a decent newer playground. Bathrooms/showers were clean and adequate. Very close to Destin--just cross the bridge (cost $3 each way). Would stay here again. We camped at Mid Bay Shores Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Sites are far enough apart that you don't feel like you're camping right on the next guy. All sites are mostly shaded and some are fully shaded. Nice view of the lake. There is some highway noise from the bay bridge. Cable TV was very poor reception on our site. Most of the time the picture was unwatchable. Not a big problem as we were not here to watch TV, but it would have been nice to get reliable news. We eventually quit trying to depend on a cable picture and switched over to OTA TV. WiFi was slow but reliable. Bathroom/shower house was very clean but somewhat dated with some worn flooring. We camped at Mid Bay Shores Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at this site a couple of times. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice and clean bathrooms. Sites are fairly roomy and have a nice view of the bay. Destin right across the Mid-Bay bridge. However, this is a toll-bridge. The sites do not have fire-rings. There are several community fire-rings along the bay. Lots of long-term campers. A lot of the sites are in poor condition. Most of the sites patio covers and grill are severely rusted. Also, the sites we were given had ruts, exposed roots and were not very level. Lastly, the Mid-Bay Bridge can be noisy. We camped at Mid Bay Shores Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Tent Trailer.

We had a wonderful time with our children at Mid Bay shores. Host and Hostess were extremely hospitable. Facilities were spotless. Much to do in the Destin area. Only downside was slight noise from bridge to Destin. Would highly recommend this for military and eligible DOD employees. We camped at Mid Bay Shores Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

We had made reservations months in advance and confirmed them before we left the house. When we arrived at the camp ground the manager told us that the park was full and that the reservation we thought we had were never forwarded to the camp ground. The problem is the office making reservations is located 4 hrs away and the two sites do not communicate very well. We finally got into a site, fortunately someone cancelled. The camp ground was over grown, in poor repair and bi-sected by a very busy and loud overhead bridge. The overhead canopy over the picnic table at our site was damaged, the picnic table itself broken and the grill was rusted through the bottom. It appeared that many sites were occupied by very long termers. The only thing going for this place is that the restrooms were at least clean. We camped at Mid Bay Shores Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.
