What a slice of heaven this little park is. The hosts were the friendliest and nicest couple we have come across in our 3 years of full timing. Although there were only 5 RV spots, and they were pretty close together, you were backed up on the water with a lovely "yard" to relax in. The owners have created a funky little garden world of colorful sitting areas for each RV and outside each motel room. There was an adorable Tiki Bar serving wine & beer to enjoy the fantastic sunsets each evening. The owners have created a special place to sit back and relax, and strive hard to make you feel at home. The only reason I didn't give this place a 10 is because you are parked right off the road. But I'd give it a 9.9 if I could. We already made our reservations for next year! The town of Cedar Key is charming,picturesque and has wonderful seafood offerings.
I have never stayed in an RV park where the difference between a premium site and a standard site was the priviledge of having a picnic table and a patch of grass. Although the park was convenient to the strip and had lots of amenities that we didn't use, the one thing I wanted was a picnic table so we could have our family over for dinner. This may sound petty, but it really irked me.
What a pleasant surprise this park was. Very friendly staff, and the sites were terrific. Concrete pads, level and the surroundings were terrific. Nice stream running through the park, with plenty of room between sites. Although we only stayed one night, if we traveled through this area again, I think it would be a great spot to stay for several days while seeing the sites in Dallas/Ft. Worth.
Very nice campground with nice spacing between the sites, however, there was little privacy because there was nothing separating the sites. The placement of the pads and picnic tables was a bit strange, some of them were behind the trailer pad, and others were next to it. For close proximity to New Orleans, you could not beat this campground. I'd highly recommend taking advantage of the ferry from Algiers to Canal Street. There is a good size parking lot on the Algiers side, and the ferry is free. It lands right at the end of Canal Street in New Orleans which is within great walking distance of the French Quarter, and street car access for the Garden District, etc. The park also had free washers and dryers, which was a pleasant surprise. Be sure to check out the seafood market outside the park entrance. Fabulous prices and good variety. Warning! Do not use the Huey Long Bridge in either direction pulling your rig. It is seriously narrow, and just driving it in our Ford 450 made us nervous. Bring bug spray, you are in the Bayou and mosquitoes are rampart.
This is a beautiful campground with nice large paved sites offering nice privacy. Bike riding through the park and along the .7 miles trail to the beach was very nice. The beach itself was stunning and very private. My bird feeder was picked clean every day by the wonderful variety of birds in the park. I would have given the park a 10 except for the location. Shopping and restaurants were quite a drive away, and the beach was further away than we had hoped. However, I would definitely stay here again while in the area.
I did not want to leave this park. It was absolutely stunning. The sites were huge, especially the pull thru sites, and very private. The gravel sites had a spacious pad area with a fire ring, table and clothes line. The boardwalk leading to the beach was well made and meandered thru the beach vegetation to a playground area equipped with a shower and benches to rinse the beach sand off, and a place to park your bicycles. From there the boardwalk continued over the dunes to the stunning beach beyond. The most amazing thing about the park is as you leave the park and head out to the highway, there is a Walmart and Home Depot right across the street. The campground is very convenient to shopping and many fine restaurants. I can't wait until next year so we can return. Be sure to make reservations if staying here, as the park was almost full every night we were there. Enjoy this park, it is beautiful.
Our rate reflects the premium site rate, less Good Sam Discount. The park was nice enough, although stating it was on the beach is questionable. Yes, it is on a beach, but it is not on the gulf, it is on the bay side and the beach was very small. The sites are close together in the standard parking lot format. The Navarre area lacked any good places to go, and to truly walk on the beach you had to drive by car over the bridge to the gulf beach. I will admit we were terribly spoiled after staying at Henderson Beach State Park, and the only reason we picked this park was their advertisement of being on the beach. All in all, the staff was friendly and provided a nice lasagna dinner for Valentine's Day while there.
