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

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

Large state park. Nice sites with foliage between each site for some privacy. Full hookups including cable. Shuttle bus from campground to beach. Campers coming in and leaving every day so reservations are suggested. Nice pool and playgrounds. - southernsky

This was our 4th stay at Topsail and once again it delivered. Sites were level and most where shaded from the heat of the day. The beaches were perfect and water was clear as a bell. The trolley service from the campground to the beach helped a lot. Just wish they could come up with a way to drop you off a little closer to the beach. The board walk to the beach is a pretty good haul but its worth it to not have a real crowded beach to relax on. I would have given it a 10 but there was some construction on some of the sites that was noisy around 8am in the morning. They are tearing up some of the sites that the roots have busted the concrete. Hard to fuss about it when they are just taking care of the campground to make it the best stay possible with nice sites. All in all it was great trip and great stay. - ctcbama
