Half of park was nicely paved and the other half was very rough and uneven in several areas. We were given the rough side. Was very hard to get into and tires bulged as we were turning around to get lined up for our area. Picnic tables were very old and rickety with splintered wood. No play area for children. Very small area for dog. We were here for about 20 minutes and left to find a new park. We had to forfeit our $200 deposit. Internet pictures were very deceptive and do not portray park as it really is. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Fifth Wheel.

Awful experience. Arrived a day late due to family member being in the hospital and upon entering the park, we were shown our 'slot' - to describe it nicely. It was on the 'unfinished/not renovated side' and even though we paid the same price per night as the nice ones, ours was the smallest. We had a small concrete pad with an old picnic table that was encroached by the neighboring RV's slideout. Not a big deal, but this person walked across our pad to empty his black and gray tanks; use his exterior shower, etc. Was very obtrusive. On the other side was a dog poop park - FYI - we do not have any dogs. Also, the 'pad' we were shown to back up onto was gravel - about 18" above the concrete pad and was composed of 1-1/2" to 2" aggregate. I slid down and fell twice while I was there injuring my shoulder. The staff that you would expect to help, did nothing. The guy that 'helped' me back into our site created more havoc and trouble than help. It took over 30 minutes to do so because he was either completely behind the trailer and I couldn't see, or barely speaking loud enough for me to hear him say 'right' or 'left'. Regardless, he was saying the wrong direction. That was quite frustrating - and add a 3 year old and our 8 month old children crying the entire time. It was also quite frustrating to have everyone walk their dog beside out camper every thirty minutes to take a crap. We left after the first night because it was so bad. We brought up the issues to whoever was working the front desk and all we were given was a wood pallet so the drop off from the last step of the camper didn't exceed 2 feet. It was quite a step for a 3 year old to take. We were also told the owner was going to contact us about the issues, but he never did. This after paying for 5 nights in advance and only staying 1 night. I advise everyone to avoid this park - unless you're an LSU fan. The site was covered with them - which is fine, but they all got the nice sites despite us being told that the sites were not 'reserved' - which was a flat out lie. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Travel Trailer.

The people were friendly and the park was clean. Sites close together but workable. Had a nice place for the car, table, etc on side of coach. Very nice boardwalk to the beach. Their website says dog park and this is incorrect, there are places to walk the dogs, but no park for running, etc. Had a very nice area close to the waterway (not gulf) that had hammocks and sitting area. Overall it was a good experience. I plan to go again. I think the prices was too high, but there are not many choices in the area. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed the location, so close to the beach. Very friendly people, many spending the whole winter season there! Nice stop over for our trip further west. Good food in the area and shopping. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

This park has been going through major renovations and upgrades which is turning it into an exquisite little gem on the Gulf of Mexico. Phase I of the upgrade has provided half of the sites with brand new concrete pads and brick pavers with plenty of room for big rigs and a tow vehicle. Beautiful tropical landscaping has been added. We stayed here a year ago and the contrast with all the improvements is remarkable. The park lies between the Bay on the North and the Gulf of Mexico on the South with easy, direct access to both. There is a lovely patio area on the Bay side with great waterfront and sunset views. A kitchen and grills are available. A new walkover right across the road has you quickly on the beach. There is a pier on the river for fishing, crabbing and boat slips. Located on Perdido Key between Pensacola, Fl and Orange Beach, Al, all the great attractions and restaurants of both are easily accessible. We will definitely stay here again.

The park is a very comfortable place. The sites are tight and the place is not as appealing visually as the website, but we enjoyed our stay. I was in a 40 foot RV and could barely fit, but once parked I was fine. There are grills and a covered patio for campers use and the host was exceptionally helpful. We would return. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

Good location on bay, right across the street is the gulf beach. Walking distance to two small stores for supplies. A few miles to all activities, restaurants, etc. This was our 4th stay here. Stayed 4 nights this time. Enjoyed the friendly snowbirds and the nightly get together. There are plans to upgrade the park. Hope the price doesn't become prohibitive. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

I usually look for a site with pull throughs. However, this RV park is located on the Perdido Key with the inner bay water on one side and the beach just across the street. The site was a back in but nice size and plenty of room for your toad and still room to eat and relax. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This park just has regulars, but they were all very kind, and they all had nice rigs. Clean rest rooms and very close to restaurants and other sites. Sites are very RV friendly with plenty of room for slideouts and easy hookups. Everything worked great. A short walk in the sand across the street and you're in the Gulf waters. I will return here again when we're in Pensacola. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well kept. It is a great location if you want to be at the beach. One of few that I know of. Close to all fun, food, etc. Access to beach and Old River. Very pet friendly! Our dog loved camping here! Low key, laid back, quiet. The downside? No pool, but the beach is right across the street. Maneuvering a big rig is a little tight. Could use paving. Great for what it is. Clean, friendly and on the beach. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

This is one of the most difficult reviews I've ever written. This is a cramped, minimal amenity campground in a terrific location. If you want to be right across the street from the gulf beach, want a boating slip, or just want to be close to the nearby condos, this is your place and my rating (based upon only those criteria) would be an eight (8). On the other hand, if you just want a nice campground, you'll find the following issues: sites are very close together, and the bathrooms are clean but there's only one shower and one toilet on both sides. During their busy season, I'm concerned this will be a very crowded, noisy place. On a positive note: the managers are friendly and helpful, the small on-site inter-coastal shoreline is beautiful, and the Wi-Fi is excellent. For the very high cost, I must rate this campground a four (4). I addressed my dilemma by averaging these two ratings for an overall six (6). We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

A no frills campground, with narrow sites. Sites are about 16 feet wide and 36 feet long. We were here for the month of February. The campground was only half full the entire time. This campground is overpriced for the facilities. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

A nice, friendly campground with docks directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. The people working there were the most helpful group we have ever experienced in 20 years of motorhome camping. We loved using the dockside grill/kitchen and the water in the ocean was crystal clear with a white sand beach directly across the two lane road from the beach. The local watering hole - The Florabama is not to be missed by those who might enjoy a cold beer and two or three bands on a weekend night. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

We loved camping here. It is a very small, but well-maintained campground. The office staff was very nice and helpful. They back up to the inter coastal waterway, so we could keep our jet ski's tied up in the water. The beach is just across the street. This is a wonderful place but my kids would have enjoyed a pool. If a pool is not important to you, then this is your place. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Fifth Wheel.
