Last fall, we stayed at the park in our RV. Unbelievable that we could park our RV right on the beach. This place surely was grandfathered in a long time ago. It is right in the middle of the action. This May, we stayed in one of the cabins. It was very nice and even though it did not look... More

Thank you so much for the comments. Yes, the cabins are wonderful when you do not want to bring the rig or if you have more than can fit in it. See you next time! Happy Camping! More

Our family has been camping here since our children were little. Now with 3 teens, they are still thrilled to be here! The service is wonderful. The facilities are nice and clean. And good grief, you're at the beach!! We have camped on the beach in the past. This time we are an easy walk to the beach. Beautiful!!

Very nice park, one that lives up to the claim of beach-front. The address says Destin, but my iPhone kept saying Miramar Beach, not that it really matters. Less than 5 minutes from the RV to the waterfront, based on our site. As others have noted there are two distinct areas....the lower area which is sandy with palm trees, and... More

Thank you for the comments and the area info. Yes your iPhone will say 'Miramar Beach' instead of Destin. We have always been known as 'Destin' and a few years ago got a new Post Office. We are 3 miles from the county line and our PO is a sub-office of Destin (hence the zip is a Destin one, but... More

The campground was adequately maintained. A few areas could have been a little more clean, but nothing that would keep us from coming back. But, as others have mentioned, the internet access is almost non-existent! I'm not even sure they can legally say they have internet access...it took 22 minutes just to post this review. If you're looking for a... More

Thanks, yes it is a nice campground! And we offer so much more than wifi. (We do have good wifi and we are constantly upgrading it. Currently there are 5 50M direct connections that are not throttled! Wifi is not the perfect technology for computers inside an RV- which make a faraday cage effect on radio signals) When you give...

Loved it! Two pools, beautiful beach, playground, laundry, nice showers, activity center. Very family oriented. The only negative is that the sites are close together, to be expected on this type of prime beachfront property. The service is top notch, the campground is very clean, and it's a fantastic destination. Can't wait to go again!

Heather, Thanks for the review and the tips on site recommendations! Being informed before you go is so important. Yes, BeachFront sites are narrow (20') as this is rare property here. Many varieties to choose from, all south of the highway and secure inside the park with a short walk to the water. Thank you for the compliments about being... More

We spent the weekend right on the sand, gulf front. The location couldn't be better for a weekend at the beach. The only downside is there isn't a sewer hookup at these sites, but the bathhouses were functional with shower facilities and toilets. They will come around and pump your camper for a small fee, which is nice. There is... More

We stayed during Easter week. The park was at capacity yet the staff still did an exceptional job in all areas. From the minute we arrived we were greeted with a smile and expertly guided into our site-helping to back us in and get situated. By far the best part of Camp Gulf is the beach and the sugary sand.... More

We can't wait for you to come back again too! Thanks for the kind words. The Hippo Slide did have a rip in it and was unsafe. We are running it free this time of year a few hours for a few days per week. The repair man was on Spring break too. He should be here today (I know... More

We were booked into Camp Gulf for 2 nights, the rest of our vacation was spent in St. Petersburg. I wish we had spent the entire vacation at Camp Gulf. The staff were wonderful, the park was clean and beautiful, the location was convenient to everything. The best part though, was the beach. The most incredible beach I've been to.... More

nothing like the beach! I was just down there catching sand fleas and baby flounder with my kids for fishing tomorrow at sunrise. I stay up by the highway, wish I was down on the front too. Sorry about no sewer on the beachfront, we have to keep it clean so we pump them out daily. Thanks for the comments.... More

We brought our kids and their friends here for spring break. From the website it looked like it had a lot to offer people with kids. We camped right on the beach and have to say the view was amazing a tad over priced but I wasnt going to complain. Until the workers that drive around on the gulf carts... More
