Have stayed here for several years and loved the place. Upon our recent stay were told they weren't going to allow contractors to stay here anymore. I guess enough people whined and complained about it since we may have booked rooms before they did, and they didn't like it. They should allow retirees and active duty to book rooms months... More

We just spent a week in one of the pet friendly two bedroom villas. We have previously stayed in the campground in our own travel trailer and in a motel unit. The villa was awesome!!! It had everything that we could totally want or need for a weeks stay. The unit was exceptionally clean and no doggie smells from previous... More

This is such a great value for military families. You have access to on site charter fishing at a reasonable price, pool, splash park, boat rentals and pier fishing. At around $120 a night for a "mini condo" (small fridge, stove/oven, microwave, toaster two beds, couch and chair) you can't beat that at all! It is also nice that you... More

I recently traveled to Destin with my family and we reserved two rooms at the Recreation Area. The rooms were very affordable, clean and comfortable for our stay. The Recreation Area is in the middle of all the nearby attractions as well. I would reccomend staying here the property is clean and quiet and very relaxing.

Our family stayed a week in a two-bedroom Villa. We held the reservation for a year and have made reservations to return next year. Destin Army is a gated facility in a great location on the Choctawhatchee Bay. The pool, kiddie splash park, picnic tables and chairs along the bay made it easy to catch a beautiful Destin sunset every... More

I now understand why this place books up so fast. I rented a two bedroom and a three bedroom duplex for seven days for our annual family vacation. I had to book a year out but it was well worth the wait. For what we paid for one house in town we were able to get two here. Also it... More

I was so happy to have stumbled upon this place when we were searching for where to take our summer vacation. We are a family of 5 so finding something affordable is our first priority. We recently bought a new camper and couldn't wait to take it out. The staff was friendly and more than accommodating when we had car... More

Small lots..the rest is top notch: well located, safe, friendly campers, great staff, good WIFI, great ameneties, price is right. We will definitely return as soon as we can. We are ex-Canadian military (35 years Navy) and we were welcome (not the case in all US Military RV parks)
