2 Parks near Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
Jul 2015 - $24.00
As mentioned in previous reviews, the park has an old portion and a new portion. Many of the sites in the new portion were concrete and they all had sewer connections. But the sites in the new portion were closer together and had less shade. We chose site 20 in the old portion which backed right up to Western Lake where we could easily launch kayaks. The lake was great for kayaking but a little too warm for a refreshing swim in July. It was tight getting a 35 foot fifth wheel into the site but once parked, we had plenty of room outside. The sites in the old portion are very secluded with high brush and small trees between each site. We could neither see nor hear our neighbors. I had issues with the 30 amp power flipping the circuit breaker when running a single roof air conditioner, hot water heater, and television. This is the first time I've had these issues on 30 amp power. We put the hot water heater on gas which resolved the problem. The bath house was clean and air conditioned but one of the three showers was not working. The beach and swimming in the gulf were great and very refreshing on the hot days. - Goombay

My husband and I enjoyed staying here even though the campground was a half mile from the beautiful beach. We stayed in the newer campground with water, electric and sewer but the sites in the older campground were more private with better view of the small lake. This is a beautiful beach but dogs are not allowed on any Florida Beach State Park which was disappointing to me since we had 2 dogs with us. It would be beneficial to have your bicycle with you because there are many bicycle trails in the nearby town and a faster way to get to the beach. - Diane Ameter

This was an unexpected pleasure! We stayed here for 7 days and enjoyed it all. Plenty of privacy as the sites are spaced nicely. Old section was nice, although some sites were small. A few back right up near Western Lake. It's only a 10 minute bike ride to the beach area, and its very nice there. The whole park has clean restrooms, showers, and pavilion areas. Sunsets were unbelievable! Water was still quite cold but managed to get legs in some. Easy in and out. Dump station there for the older non-sewer section. - LaMonte

This is a great place to stay. It is a state park with a lot of amenities. Our paved and level site is partially shaded, full hook ups, cable, a pool, the beach with tram service and wifi at the store. The site has privacy like a state park with lots of trees. - SGF

Very nice state park. Great value for full hookup campground which even includes cable TV. Sites are concrete pads. Some sites more shaded than others. Newer section has most shade and nicest landscaping. Restrooms are kept pretty clean and are air conditioned. Hand soap dispensers in men's room are broken and need replaced. Paved path to beach is very nice and a very quick trip on a bicycle. They rent carts at the camp store you can attach to your bike to load all your beach stuff on to tote to the beach. Beach is very clean and not crowded since it is away from the commercialized areas. Will definitely come back here in the future. - d1h

We waited 10 months for our reservation (site #127), and couldn't have been happier. While some of the other campers commented that the park has been going down hill over the past few years (mainly the broken/cracked concrete pads), while ours was broken, it in no way affected our stay.
The sites in the front part of the campground were a little too close for my comfort, but the loop we were in was doable for me. I chose site #127 specifically for the fact of their being a large space between sites. There were a few others that would work as well, but when we return we will try to get the same site, or at least in the same loop.
The beach shuttle was a blessing when your hauling 5 people's stuff to the beach. The pool was a good break from the beach.
While some may say that the park is going down, we were very happy with our stay and will be going back in the future when we need a beach fix. - PatPerry1966
