We had planned to boondock at a Panama City Walmart but found the four Walmarts to be unfriendly to overnight parking. The beach RV parks were too expensive so we decided to travel the 20 minutes to Pine Lake. We were so glad we did. The staff was super welcoming, even though we came in after hours. The sites were large, pull-through, and shaded. They had decent Wi-Fi, good antenna TV reception, and some facilities (had a nice nature walk and small lake). After a stressful day, we had a quiet and restful night here. Can't beat the price which reflects the PA rate. We would return.
We knew nothing about this park before coming here, except it was cheap (rate quoted is Passport). We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival, given a choice between a full hook-up site or a lovely waterfront w/e site. We chose the site on the lake where we could watch the birds and the sunset. They helped us into the site (some spaces looked small, but ours was fine). One evening, they had live music in the lakeside porch, place felt like a friendly neighborhood. Some would complain about tight turns to get in but for the money, we thought this place was great. We stayed for five nights and would definitely return.
Gorgeous park with so many waterfront sites! We were able to get a lovely site on the water but only for three nights - you need to book ahead in the winter months. Loved that sites were spacious and separated by trees. Also, there is so much to do in the park. We biked, explored the pier/fort/museum, hung out on the beach, watched the kayakers, and walked the trails looking at birds. Bathroom was really nice and clean. Only downside was the dump station had some kind of wasp infestation. We decided to skip and hold off dumping until the next park.
Price is too high for what you get, even though it is located on a pretty beach and you can easily bike into town from the park. Also, the staff member who got us into our site was a super nice dude and a back in master. However, the sites are the tightest we've ever seen. Everyone was really right on top of each other. Also, we were in the fourth row so there was horrible road noise. Wi-Fi was too expensive (for the price, we thought it should have been included). We will probably stay somewhere else next time.
