Came here with my family recently and was pleasantly surprised! You are greeted into the campground by a prominent sign; so you won't miss the place! The outside looks like it needs a little work but once inside, very nice. There are 2 pools, one with slide and one with a bouncy pad for kids. Pretty large spots with access... More

We were here for Easter weekend and decided to come back for longer this time. It was awesome, specially because the ocean water was at least 15 degrees warmer. Kids were able to use both pools, one which has a inflatable jungle gym in it and they love it. Our only dissapointment was they (camp gulf) didn't roasted marshmallow by... More

We booked late and were lucky to get a site. We stayed at one of the north upper park sites. I was nervous about hearing traffic from the parkway, but it was never an issue. The walk to the beach took us about 10 minutes (we have a baby so probably took us a little longer than most) but it... More

Arrival: We arrived late on a week night and the patrol man who showed us to our site was very nice and helpful. He helped us back into our site. Bath houses: although many of the bathrooms were renovated or close to being finished, they were very dirty. The bathroom itself was very nice. Activities: other than being right on... More

We stayed at Camp Gulf over Spring Break in an RV. The check in was fast and simple. Our site was not on sand, but only steps away and even fewer from the bathrooms. Clean facilities and overall great pool and activities. Our kids especially liked the visit from the exotic pets. The beach was clean and clear with not... More

We recently made a quick, last minute stop here for one night and wish we would've stayed longer. We will definitely be back! Upon arrival it seems very crowded but was easy to maneuver RV in and beach lots provided plenty of space. The view was simply amazing and having the kids build sandcastles and hunt crabs at night made... More

Let me begin by stating that I messed up my reservation and that we traveled over 1,000 miles and our entire vacation was almost ruined... UNTIL... The guest services at Camp Gulf saved me. I accidentally reserved a wrong sized camping spot and they had nothing available but they allowed us to stay in the over flow lot which was... More

As an almost full time rv'er, I constantly struggle with the reviews offered by other services when it comes to RV parks. I cannot recommend this one more highly. The overall experience is a 10 out of 5. While I did not use internet at this particular location, everything else from bathrooms, to showers, to store, to other amenities were... More

The cabins are not worth the price. The room had dust along the walls and the loft space could only fit my 5&7 year old due to height. The bed room is very very small, only a foot avail to walk on the sides of the bed. Overall we were not happy for what we paid.

Sorry that you were not happy. Non-Rver's are sometimes not familiar with a cabin(park model) size. They are very nicely outfitted but they are 400 sq. ft. inside dimensions as advertised. There is so much to do here outside that people do not normally stay in them all day. We do offer a larger cabin at 1,200 sq. ft. that... More

Camp Gulf is the most beautiful sea-side place to camp on the Emerald Coast, hands down. We were treated like gold from the minute we checked in until we left a week later. The stores are clean and well-stocked, the staff is incredibly friendly, the activities for the kids are fun and affordable if not free. The pools were bath-water... More
