Stayed over night in a 42' 5er. Pretty tight in and out. Small sign at entrance. Older park with mostly seasonals. Small park, no where to run dogs. Manager, straight forward, no nonsense. Wife uneasy with location. Very quiet at night. Small sign on door to pick a site and pay later if no one at office. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed many times; this is our favorite RV park on the Gulf coast. We always stay in a pull-thru with our HDT and 45 foot 5th wheel. This park hosts a lot of snowbirds that return yearly and some full time residents. Maneuvering can be a little tight when the park is full but everyone has always been friendly and helpful as needed. The management and staff have always been very accommodating and helpful. The interior roads and sites are paved. The entrance can be a little hard to find the first time. The park has a pool, clubhouse, playground and a nice little store with a propane fill station. There are a number of mature live oaks with spanish moss making for a beautiful setting. The park is surprisingly quiet at night given the major roads nearby. A Winn Dixie grocery store is a short walk as are some restaurants. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrived before office should have closed and she had left for the night because a storm was coming. It was just a small shower. Site was left dirty. I stepped out of motor home into someone's garbage (pizza crust, etc.) Site had a full sewer which we found out after we started to dump. Office unconcerned and had to deal with a mess in our previously clean compartment and on us before we could leave. Very little maneuvering room for bigger rigs. We barely made it and we are experienced drivers. New drivers wouldn't have made it. We will find another place to stay when we are in area again. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Motorhome.

Pool is nice, bathrooms are clean, spots are asphalt and fairly level. Campground is clean overall. However, management is terrible!

I'm glad our 1 month trip is being shortened to 2 weeks! Tried to go to the office 5 times in 7 days: to have them not open during their posted business hours. (They claim to be open daily from 7am till 1 pm, then from 2 pm until 6 pm.)

The first day, we arrived around 4:45. The manager lady didn't want to wait for us to get set up and come back to pay for the internet usage. She wanted to go home early. I tried to go the next day to get internet. I went close to lunch time, 12:45, so I can understand them leaving 15 minutes early for lunch, but when I returned the same day at 4:30 it was closed again!

Then, I went to do laundry. Their 24 hour facility smells terrible, has extremely outdated machines. Only one dryer works. They don't have a change machine. I started my laundry at 10:58 am, went to the office for quarters to find they had closed for lunch! Not to return until 2pm. (It wasn't even 11 yet and they were already on lunch!)

I tried the office again at 3 pm to find it closed for the day and not to reopen until tomorrow at 7 am. Luckily there was a grocery store around the corner where I could get change.

The manager lives on site and says you may go to her after hours in case of emergencies. However during hours, while she was home (camper unlocked, truck there, golf cart there, and I could hear movement) and yet no one would answer the door.

Extremely poor service from the staff. I would only stay here if it was a short trip, and God forbid someone ever have an actual emergency, because no one is around to help. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I just read a review that said management was terrible. I was there in Aug also. I talked with her plenty. They had a lot of lightning storms that month and unfortunately the campground was struck 4 times. She was constantly going out on the grounds and fixing cable or electric. She tries to make sure everything is in working order for all who pass thru. Also she had a major one where it took 2 days to be fixed. She had to go back and forth to the plumbing place for parts. But they got it fixed. She works hard there. So don't be so harsh to judge. She runs that campground in top form. Everyone loves it there. I talked to a lot of campers passing thru. It's unfortunate that happened and your experience, But it was what I call a fluke with the storms. I come here every year. She is the hardest working woman I have ever met. I will always come here, as long as she is running it. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Only about a mile to the beach. A couple grocery stores right next door. Shopping malls only a few miles distance. Casinos down on the beach. They have Margaritaville on the beach for kids. Arcade games, rock climbing wall, all kinds of stuff.

Friendly staff. Nice campground with mature trees. Our site was spacious/level with a asphalt pad. Noticed some sites are concrete. We had a partial view of the river. Some road noise but not a problem for us. Our Direc TV satellite did not work due to the trees but the cable TV worked well. Good Verizon reception. Fee for use of the Wifi, $3 for 24hrs(up to 2 devices). We camped at Baywood Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed at Baywood Campground in June. Thought I had made reservations but when we got there said that I had not. The good news is that they were able to find us a pull-thru site long enough for our 37' w/toad. The office and restrooms are old and in need of much TLC. The bathrooms were clean enough...just very old. The park is both tight and crowded, mostly w/trailers. Be sure to read the directions CAREFULLY before arriving. The sign at entry is small and road more of an ally than a street driving in alongside a drug store. The pool was not used so all I can say is that it looked "adequate". While many blocks from the beach, we were glad we were able to find a space because the selection in Gulf Port is very limited. In that it was warm with AC running we were, not bothered by nearby traffic noise. Our pad was level and newer asphalt but neighbors close and landscape very dry. We will, however, look for another campground near but outside Gulf Port on our next trip to the Gulf. We would rate this park, at best, a 5 We camped at Baywood Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet campground with level sites and large patio area. Shaded sites. Bathrooms and showers clean and well maintained. Office or owner very pleasant and accommodating. Camp store is well stocked with convenient hours. Full hook ups. WiFi worked great. Owner very accommodating as we had flat tire and he allowed us to stay extra time for the tech. Only reason not for excellent is the signage coming in. Call before for exact directions. Between Beach Pharmacy and Champion Cleaners! Very small sign! Would stay again.

Old but fairly maintained park, uneven and tight spots. Many full-time residents. The "fishing pond" advertised is populated by alligators, snakes and snapping turtles; also hard to get to without walking through occupied campsites. Only one working shower on the women's side. We booked for two weeks and regretted it almost immediately. The park is directly behind a grocery, CVS and lots of fast food restaurants resulting in lots of noise and traffic. More pet-tolerant than pet-friendly..not much green space for walking a pet. The management seemed harried but capable. Friendly people were few; we stayed the full two weeks and our neighbors on both sides never even said "Hello". We won't be back. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We love this park - we stay here every time we come to the Gulf Coast. It is conveniently located - walking distance to 2 grocery stores and several fast food places. The manager is the perfect combination of friendly and no-nonsense and keeps the campground looking nice and running well. An added perk is that we can get our HDT and 45’ fifth wheel into the pull-throughs there. The pull-throughs are good for satellite reception and the upper area of the park is full of beautiful live oaks. The other campers are friendly but not overly so and our kids love the pool. We have stayed in campgrounds all over the US and this is one of our favorites. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Their website photos make it look better than it is. We could get a pull thorghu for our 40' coach + toad so we booked it, and when we got here, I regretted. But here we are for 2 nights. Staff are very friendly and helpful but this is one we would not have found the access road if we'd not called ahead. It's a very old place, very tight spaces, few pull throughs, narrow lanes and apparently people live here, snow birds, too. I don"t understand the previous comments about a shopping center. There is a liquor store and McDonalds near along the road but no shopping center. We leave after our 2nd night which is already paid for, and I would not return here. This is like an old dumpy campsite with packed spaces. Not very flat, but our jacks leveled us out. It was quiet enough last night. We camped at Baywood Campground in a Motorhome.
