OMG this place is wonderful!!! Perfect: the best campground we have ever stayed at. We were in a travel trailer and stayed in the old loop they don't have full hookups but it was worth it to have all the trees and shade. (Very private.) Yes there is a lot of sand and we did see one small snake, but you are in a wooded area. We have two small dogs 5 lbs and 9 lbs and we felt safe here. The sand spurs were around but we did not see many on the camp site. So many things to do! A quick walk or ride to the beach area, which is beautiful! Hardly anyone on the beach but 3-4 families. The bathrooms were really clean and the park was spotless. Very, very nice with huge lakes and sand dunes. Beautiful sunsets. Can't say enough good things about this place. The people that work at the campground were all very friendly. Not that we saw them very much. The campground was so huge and private you hardly saw anyone. Another great thing was the location! Perfect! Nice area of town with cute stores and also 1/2 hour from Destin and 1/2 hour from Panama City. We went to both and honestly loved the Santa Rosa area the best. Visit Seaside and Watercolor. The houses and area was amazing and very quiet. The perfect vacation for a nice relaxing get away. And close enough to the bigger cities to check them out also. Would go back again and tell people to go! We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely sunset on the beach, easy walk from our water/electric site in the older part of the park (no cement pad). It was level, but a tight fit for our rig. Best value on a gorgeous beach. We only stayed one night but will certainly go back. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

One Of My Favorites! Lots of room for 40' RV. Nice area sit outside and BBQ. Not too far from the beach. Can ride bikes from campground. The beach is beautiful. Water temperature great. Sand is beautiful white. Would come back again. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the newer section with full hook ups. We moved around some because we didn't have reservations, so one site was gravel and one was concrete and they were large and private. The first night our site fronted the lake and was beautiful. There are bike rentals at the office. This is one of our favorite state parks and will go back again.

This is a very nice state park located in a very nice area of the panhandle. It is more secluded than both Henderson and Panama City State Parks. There are two loops, one of which is older with shaded, somewhat narrow 2 way sites, while the other is new, paved and all sites are open and three way. There are about five lakefront sites on the older loop. We stayed on site 18, which seemed to offer the best views out of a large back window of all the lakefront sites. The sites in the older loop are visually very private, but close to each other. They can also be challenging to get into and are not big rig friendly. We were able to get into site 18 without difficulty in a 33' fifth wheel. It is a nice site. The older loop is dusty, but if you stay on the lake side of the loop the prevailing breezes keep the dust away from you. The inside sites on the loop get lots of dust. The new loop is very nice but does not have lakefront sites: although there are a few lake view sites. All of these are three way sites with the sites themselves being crushed stone. New, nicely done with lots of room and easy access for bigger rigs. Waterfront sites get a great breeze: but I suspect the inside sites are hot. We really liked it. Was very laidback. We will be returning next year. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful SP campground with clean restrooms and friendly staff. There is a wonderful paved bike trail right from the park where we were able to easily ride 10 miles in either direction. Could walk our kayaks from our site to put-in, found kayaking interesting but somewhat limiting for us. Restaurants, groceries, laundry, etc. all close by. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground close to other Gulf coast beach towns. No cable TV or Wi-Fi available. Campground very clean and staff very friendly. We had 1 night and moved to another site for 2 nights. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. It was our first time here and only stayed one night, but we were very impressed. The older sites do not have full hookups but are great sites with privacy and nature all around. The newer sites look larger and have full hookups that are graveled or paved. Beaches are great and we did not have a lot of time to explore but rate this park one to go to again. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The newly upgraded section of the park is wonderful. The sites are level (gravel) and have patios. There are some concrete sites for physically challenged. Can drive (or bike) to beach where there is bathhouse available. Cell service was good. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We rented a cabin within the park plus an RV site for the other family. It was a quiet, peaceful place. The beach was very clean and spacious. The cabins are neat, clean and comfortable. I will go back and camp in my RV. An A+. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an outstanding State Park in a fantastic location. The park in next to the Point Washington State Forest. This combination gives you great beach and great forest to explore. Hiking and biking make for fun activities. The park is close to some of the Gulf Coasts best resorts. The shopping and eating is out of this world. The campground has two loops. The older loop, sites 1 thru 35, are water and electric. The new loop, sites 37 thru 59, are full hook up, 50 amp sites. The older sites are smaller, but shady. The newer sites are larger, but more open. We stayed in site 53 and found it fantastic. This is a must visit park! We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great RV Park. Bring your bikes for the ride to the beach as it is a ways. It is one of the nicest beaches around. Put your food away at night because the raccoons will rob you blind. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

The new loop is now open and is very nice. Full hook-ups too. Not much shade since they cleared out a lot of trees putting in the new sites. Nice hard surfaced road there too. However, we camped in the old loop. The no sewer hook-ups, gravel road, and some very small sites. None of this was an issue for us as we knew going in what to expect. Our popup could fit in even the smallest of sites. The sites in the old loop are gravel unless you get one of the few ADA concrete sites. The park was very quiet except for a couple people with yappying dogs. Not a huge issue though. The old loop is best suited for tents and popups and there were plenty on this trip. The only issue we had, and the reason I rated Grayton a 7, was the cleanliness of the bathhouse. Whoever was assigned to clean must not have had their heart in it. The trash was emptied daily but the sinks had the same dead bugs, spiders, and human hair in them all 3 days we were there. This was the first time we experienced this at a FL state park. However, this will not keep us from going back. The park is in a great location for biking to some of the nice local communities. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Grayton Beach State Park is definitely a Florida State Park gem in the Emerald Coast area. Conveniently located, it’s about halfway between Destin and Panama City Beach on the panhandle of Florida. The camping facilities there are less than a mile from the most pristine sand and water in Gulf. Because of the location this park is an RVers dream come true for those that love the beach. Our 3 night stay there in the end of September 2009 was terrific. Upon arrival at the park office to check-in, the Rangers/staff were very friendly and made us feel completely welcomed. Having reserved site 20 based on a recommendation I read on the internet our check-in was smooth and easy. The site was located in the older loop of the park and was very nice but I would say most nearly all the sites are as equally as nice with lots of trees and privacy. A negative on the site location is that the older loop of the park could use a little TLC. This is a heavily used park so the restrooms/showers are showing some age and wear. The interior road in the older loop is unpaved as well as the sites with the exception of the ADA pads. The newer loop is paved, sites are graveled and there they offer both 30amp and 50amp service. Now for my favorite part, the fun stuff in the area. The best part is the beach being so close and since it is a state park beach it was less crowded then the Destin and Panama City Beaches. There is a lot to do in the area from sunbathing on the beach to bike riding the local trails to kayaking on the lake. Just beware that there may be an alligator or two in the lake. I personally never saw one but it is posted. As an avid bike rider, I would like to add that the paved trails as well as the off road trails in the National Forest area are awesome here. If you come here to visit you should bring your bathing suit and beach stuff, your bike and a kayak (or rent them locally) and the desire to have a great time because at Grayton Beach State Park there is plenty of fun to be had. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Great rustic park. Very nice location and can bike to Grayton Beach and Watercolors. If you haven't been to Watercolors, you owe it to yourself to take the Mrs. She will love it. Sites are secluded and shady. New section with paved sites and 50 amps just fixing to open. Great staff and more of a natural wilderness park than modern park like Topsail. I like it a lot and can't wait to go back! We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
