This is an OK campground if you like being close to the beach; in fact, it is across the highway from it. You have access to the hotel pool as the CG is owned by the hotel. The CG is a basic no frills bare bones dirt and grass lot. A few sites are pull-thrus. Good for a one or two night stays, although there are many seasonal units. If you like to fish, a lot of the folks here do. We only stay here because we like the proximity to the ocean. Mexico Beach is a very quiet. one stop light town, but beware if it is spring break. The beach and parking can be difficult for such a small town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small park with small cramped sites. Close to highway and some traffic noise. Amenities are few for the traveler; perhaps it offers more activities for a more permanent stay. Wifi was terrible. Sites were not groomed or looked after. Staff were quite friendly. The beach is across the street and accessible if that is important to you. Stayed there on a recommendation but would not return. Vastly Overpriced for what you get. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice ocean front park. We had a site that allowed us to look at the ocean. Good cable and WiFi. Friendly staff. Beautiful white sand beach across the street. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and helpful managers. Across the street from white sand beach with access. Good cable and Wi-Fi. Nothing fancy but clean and quiet. Like most ocean campgrounds in Florida be sure to bring your flea and mosquito spray. Our second stay here and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice simple park and a very good value. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating, providing directions and recommendations on the area. There is not much to do at the park, but the beach is just across the street. We could see the ocean from our spot. Use of the hotel pool across the street is complementary, nothing fancy but the pool was clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I chose this campground because I fell in love with Mexico Beach. The managers are very friendly and very helpful. We call with no notice,Memorial Day weekend, and they promised me a spot in their overflow lot, but without full hookups. However, there another camper with reservations was a day late, and I was given that spot for one night. I liked it so much that I stayed an extra night in the overflow lot. I was able to park my motor home on the shoulder of the highway, and enjoy the beach during the day, and return to the campground later. I love this place. It is not fancy, but has 30 amp full hookups, in a fantastic location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My experience here was not good. We were there less than 3 hours when our large ice chest was stolen. It obviously was not the first time this has happened. The manager didn't seem surprised, in fact he seemed to think it was funny because he joked about it. Before we left, it happened to another camper. His fishing rods and tackle were stolen. Again the manager made a joke of it. I know this can happen anywhere, but the manager didnt seem to care. In my opinion this should not be a recurring problem in a campground this small. We loved the beach there but will camp elsewhere next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We agree most people would give this campground a lower rating as it really has a not so great look. But, it is across the road from the Gulf of Mexico. There was a pool at the El Governor Motel and we were welcome to use it. The people who were there were friendly and helpful, made us feel welcome. Our site was very level and everything was in easy reach of our 5th Wheel. We were here the week after Memorial Day May 2008 and the weather was wonderful! There were families staying in both the hotel and campgrounds, and we enjoyed seeing them celebrating the end of school. There was a masseuse at the hotel who had a special: 2 hours 2 people $60, next to the real ocean not a recording. We would return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our 3rd January to stay at this park. It will not get high scores for amenities, but this is one of the most comfortable parks we've stayed in. The majority of campers are there for the winter, and are friendly and welcoming. The managers treat you like their family, and are friendly, helpful and do a great job of keeping this park clean. We love the fact that you can walk across the road, and be on the beach in just a minute or two. There is not a lot to do in Mexico Beach, but it is halfway between Panama City and Apalachicola, which will provide entertainment and shopping. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Most people would give this campground a 4 or so as it really has a not so great look. But, it is across the road from the Gulf of Mexico and our site had a nice view. The people who were there were so friendly and helpful, made us feel so welcome, we ended up staying 5 days instead of our planned 2! Our site was very level and everything was in easy reach of our trailer. We were here in January 2006 and the weather was wonderful! We would return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
