We were able to secure a campsite after checking at the gatehouse and the attendant checked, stating 2 sites would be open shortly. This is a wonderful park with a lovely sugar sand beach and many bike trails. Sites were private with water & electric. Restrooms were clean. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Grayton Beach State Park is a lovely older state park. There are really two sections. The lower older section has nice wooded sites that really set you back in the woods. But these has no sewer hook-up, just water & electric.. And these sites are pretty tight to get a large 5th wheel into. We have a 35ft rig and it took careful maneuvering to get in & if our neighbor across from us hadn't moved his truck, getting out would have been impossible. Between the narrow road and site entrance it is tight. The new section has water, sewer & electric and the sites are easier access but they are out in the open with no shade. Showers and bathrooms are easily accessible in the older sections. Showers are great and bathrooms clean. The park states it has bike paths but actually what they have is access the 10 mile path that runs parallel to Rt 30A which is the main road down through the area. It is nice but has alot of bikers & runners on it. The beach at Grayton is the star. It is pristine and glorious. We would come back but only for a week or 10days--the length of our tank capactiies. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed 14 days, enjoyed everyone except 2 days of rain. Got to have some in your life. Park great for bike riders. Miles of paved bike trails along 30A with activities, shops and restaurants in any direction. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Grayton Beach is neat community, actually the way I picture a beach town. Wan glitz; Seaside and Watercolors. Plenty to see and do with the most beautiful Sugar Sand Beach in Florida....

Beautiful state park and beach with sand dunes. The loop with sewer hookups has fresh pea gravel in all of the sites and the road is asphalt. The sites in the older loop has sand road and sites. The ADA sites are concrete. Sites are very large and most have privacy. Verizon signal was LTE and very strong. We walked our dogs around the camping loops but beware of stickers. Very easy bike ride or walk to the beach. You can't see the Gulf from the sites but we could hear the surf which was nice. Would love to stay here again.

The first of many FL State Parks we briefly called home. Love the beautiful beaches and well kept grounds. We got hit by a pretty good storm and at one point our site was like a river, but the sand absorbed the water and it was fine within the hour!! Would love to stay here again. Great Verizon coverage. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Our favorite FL state park thus far! We camped here to escape Hurricane Matthew, and had a great time. We stayed in site 1 (near dump station but not an issue except for about 10 minutes in the morning when it was busy). Site was huge and shady. We extended our stay and had to moved to site 55 (no shade, ADA accessible- paved, next to bathhouse).

Beach was pristine and a short drive or bike ride away. The community of Seaside was 2 miles away and was a treat with great food from food trucks and an open area for the children to run and play with others. (Gluten Free gourmet grilled cheese!)

Camp Ranger was so helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back! We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campsite was a little small, but private with fairly thick vegetation between sites. Roads within campground were "gravel-like" and were very tight allowing for little room to back into site. Lots of overhead branches to avoid, but overall a nice park with a very pretty, private beach with white sand dunes. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Spent one day driving along the "Emerald Coast" stopping to see Navarre Beach, Fort Walton, and Destin.

We rode bikes along Santa Rosa beach and also within town of Seaside, which is a nice quaint village located close to the park.

Beautiful state park with lots of bike and hiking trails and short distance to private beach with beautiful white sands and a nice bathhouse. Small park, maybe 60 sites, no sewer in older loop. The newer loop has sewer hookups, but no shade at all. I would recommend the older loop since all sites are a short walk to the bathhouse and have nice shade. One washer and dryer is located outside bathhouse. A big lake between campground and beach is good for canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and if the wind is good, kite surfing. Reserve well in advance. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the "old" loop. More rustic feeling, but still nice. Gravel loop vs asphalt of the other loop. More privacy and shade. Sites are level, shaded, sand. Six-18 have partial Western Lake view. Facilities are good, staff is great. Beautiful beach with a dune hiking trail. Plenty of asphalt for biking/jogging exercise. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Take the dune trail, enjoy the beach and picnic facilities at the beach area. Kayak of paddle board on Western Lake. If you are into biking/hiking there is a great paved path running east/west along the main hwy. Only about 2 miles to WaterColor and Seaside, a neat resort and village.

Stayed here for one week in February. Some sites have cement pads, others are pea gravel; ours was gravel. Some sites have water, electric, sewer, as ours did. Some do not have sewer. Park was very clean, very quiet, very pleasant. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Beach, hike, fish, bicycle. Lots of little shops. Very bicycle friendly area with bike lanes which makes it more safe and fun. Take a day and bicycle or drive to the town of Watercolor for food stands and shopping.

The beach is beautiful, especially at sunset. Bring you beach chairs and favorite beverage and relax.

Outlet mall shopping about 18 miles away in Destin.

This is a beautiful State Park with over a mile of ocean beach frontage. The campground is by a lake but within walking distance of the ocean. Very peaceful. Large level lots, some paved, but most with fine gravel. It is a fairly small campground and lots 32-59 are the nicest as they have water, electric and sewer hook-ups! Very friendly and helpful employees, too. It's not hard to find but the entrance is pretty easy to miss in the dark as the sign is not lit up. We would definitely come back here. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

The park has a few canoes to rent and you can fish in the lake. It's a nice walk or bike ride to the beautiful, clean and peaceful beach. Lots to do and great places to eat in Panama City, about 30 minutes away or Destin, about 45 minutes away.

LOVED it here...sites were big and you could walk to the beach. Bring your bike as they have a biking path along I 98. Seaside within walking / biking distance with restaurants & Public. Very nice place...would have loved to stay longer here, but they were booked up for the week between Christmas & New Years so we could only get 2nights. Very tranquil & great for dog walking.

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. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
