This campground is about 40 miles north of Pensacola off of U.S. 29. Take CR 4 westbound and go about 2 miles. Entrance is on the left next to the flagpole. Pluses: Nice view of lake. Quiet at night (and in the day), no highway noise in back of campground. Rest rooms reasonably clean, not perfect. Boat launch nearby. Only electric motors and hand paddling allowed. A nice environment for a canoe or kayak, as well as a bass boat. There is a small children playground. Minuses: Very little to do other than fish, paddle, or look at the lake. Nearby town of Century has little in the way of tourism or attraction. There is a prison across the lake (not visible), but the inmates could be heard at basketball break. Hope the razor wire holds tonight. Surprisingly, a few long-term people have taken up residence in a county-owned park. Policies for long-term stays are full of loopholes which allow this. Overall: A nice place for a brief getaway or if traveling through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is near our home so we visit often. It is a great park, and we have had super times growing up going here. The hurricanes a few years ago did mess things up, but now they are back going strong. The new pavilion is great and the trees have recovered. Only draw back is you have to use the dumping station; no sewer hookups. I wish the state would change this; Florida can do better. Most all the sites are real level. It's home for me I will always go there. It's beautiful lake goes around a big portion of the camp area. Campfires are allowed in the rings at each site for a real camping experience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lake Stone is a lovely out of the way park. it is only a few miles from the small town of Century and only minutes to the Alabama line and the Casino in Atmore Alabama. It is about 45 miles to Pensacola. It is a quiet and family atmosphere and the fishing is good. The only bad thing is that it does not have sewer hookup and no WiFi. It's the perfect place to take your family on a long weekend to get away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
