Even though we just stayed one night, we will be back. Very nice Campsites, well decorated and clean. All of the amenities available really got our attention. Programs for our grand kids, shuttle to the beach, very bike friendly, swimming pool and fresh water lakes for fishing. They also rented SUP's and Kayaks.

We camped here for two nights. Probably the nicest tent camping I have seen. But the best part about this park is the beach. I would compare it to the Caribbean. Beautiful turquoise clear water, snorkeling, dolphins, just amazing. The sand dunes on the beach are something to be seen too. Much prettier than the beaches a few miles down... More

Directly across from us was the laundry facility that has 8 washers and dryers. $1.50 to wash and the same... More

This was our first time here, but it will not be our last. The campsites are mostly shaded with plenty of space! Our site even had a street light. There are numerous bike trails and bike rentals are available. It is a short bike or walk to a gorgeous, private beach. The water was turquoise blue. There is also a... More

We stayed here one night before heading to Panama City. We camped in a tent and loved the state park here. It was beautiful! We walked from our site to the beach and it had breathtaking views. We also took the time to head back down to the beach after dark and looked for crabs. My boys loved the entire... More

Summer vacation trip with two grandkids, beach, pool, laundry, and activities makes for a terrific experience! The campsites are close, but not too close to lose all privacy, and well shaded by tall pines. The pads are concrete and fairly level, the patio has a grill and picnic table for more outdoor time. We set up camp across from the... More

I never give 5 stars. This Fl St campground is the best campground at which we've stayed. Beautiful sites, clean, attractive pool area, ac in bathhouses, and a great paved bike/walking trail to a gorgeous beach. A courtesy tram can take you there too. This is Ft wilderness only much,much,better. At $47 / nite it's a steal! No wonder they... More
