This park was a big disappointment. If you look at their website, you are left with the feeling that this park is much nicer than it really is. They have all these nice architectural renditions on their website which turn out to be nothing more than what they plan to do with this park; not what it is today. It is no better than an average park and I'm being generous at that. It has a good location. It backs up to the inter-coastal waterway. If you have a boat, they have some slips, but I'm not sure they are free for RV'ers to use. There is a private boardwalk to the beach located across the highway. The restrooms and showers were clean, but older and only 1 shower stall. There are several chairs to sit in the grassy area overlooking the inter-coastal waterway which is a nice relaxing place to sit. There is no pool or hot tub. The sites on the west side have concrete pads for your RV and brick pavers for a patio and to park your vehicle with a narrow strip of landscaping between. The sites on the west side are wide enough to not feel like you are looking into your neighbor's RV. The east side has not been redone yet. Some have broken concrete pads or gravel/sand with it mostly being sand. Several of the RV's there were very old and pretty shabby. The occupants were, well, "colorful" as well. This could be a nice little park someday if you believe all their future plans. It's just not there now. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

There are some very good restaurants in the area. Shipp's Harbor Grill (higher end more gourmet food) in Orange Beach and Fish River Grill (locals eat here) were both very good and a good value. If the Blue Angels are practicing at NAS Pensacola, go see them! The Museum of Naval Aviation there is also very interesting and well worth the 15 mile drive.

Any experience on the Gulf Coast is good ... this is a small park with a boat dock. 26 sites at least half on the west side are improved. Residents are friendly, some are yearly guests. Pet areas (small) are located on south end. They have a private walk to the sea shore, dogs not welcome on the beach. Fire ring, barbecue and indoor patio located by the office. Owners are on site, 90% of the time. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

We stayed there 2 nites. The Host and Hostess were very helpful and nice. The spaces were a little tight but plenty of room for our 30' RV and parking space fir our little Ranger pick up. It's on the Canal and just across street from the public beach. We enjoyed all the Mardi Gras activities that were going on. My husband used the showers and I used the laundry and both were clean and well kept. We definitely would recommend it. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

Small lots some paved other rock, dog parks are a joke. Good place for an older clients. The owners are making the attempt but falling short of cash. Only 26 sites, last year it was packed this year only half full. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
