There are two camping sections to this park; the old which has smaller sites without 50 amp service and without sewer hookup; and the new which is full service with some concrete sites and others with gravel. Most of the sites in the new area require a good bit of leveling and most are back in. There are not a lot of bigger rig sites, so call to check. The bathrooms were clean and nice. You can go in and lock the door for a shower. The showers had short shower heads - very convenient for some. The washer and dryer were outside the bathhouse; I didn't like that, but overall the facilities were adequate, clean and accessible. The park was great for either walking or bicycling for good distances. The beach is quite a long walk, but beautiful. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 4 nights in the newer section of the park which offers 50 amp service and sewer hookups. The older loop has only 30 amp service and no sewer hookups. Our site was concrete, very spacious, but with no grass and no shade. Immediately off of the concrete, the lots were covered in sand spurs, which made walking a dog very difficult. We asked to move to another site which offered more shade (the temps were 90 degree plus), but the park rangers said the site we wanted to move to would not be available for the entire period of our stay so we stayed put. As it turned out, that site remained empty throughout our stay. The beach area was beautiful and was a good hike (or bike ride) from our site. When walking our dog one night, we encountered a huge snake; however, we didn't hang around long enough to determine if it was venomous. The park is very near the tourist areas of Hwy 30A (i.e., Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain, etc.) which offers shopping and restaurants, but are a bit pricey. There are two Publix supermarkets close by (one within 2 miles and another about 4 miles). Destin is within 20 miles and Panama City Beach approx. 30 miles from the park. We probably will not return to this park during this time of year due to the lack of shade and grass, and because of the presence of black and yellow flies. We camped at Grayton Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
