This place met all of our needs and we loved the fact that the campground is on the beach. We stayed in a non beach site but it was only a short walk until our feet hit the sand. People were friendly, especially the ladies at the check in place at the store in the middle of the campground. Pool... More

Difficult to review because of the variety of types, sizes, convenience to park amenities, and price of sites and cabins. But here goes. Had 1 cabin and RV site 701 (2nd row from beach). Family of 9 with ages 2-67. Mix up on reservations (their fault, but Courtyard by Marriott came through). Beach RV site was on the sand. Get... More

Well, maybe it would be perfect if there was not any confusion about how the reservation was made. We do not use 'Courtyard by Marriott'. Perhaps that is the confusion. We have our own system and are not affiliated with CYMarriott in any way. Glad our staff was able to get you exactly what you were looking for! BTW, the... More

My family of 5 stayed at this RV park for 1 week. We loved everything about it! The sites are really nice. We had a beach front site and it was AMAZING! There was always a staff member close by if we needed someone and every one of them were very friendly! The stores on site are nice and they... More

We definitely recommend this place, it's very expensive, we paid $800.00 more or less for a week by the end of August. We had an excellent spot, shady, right next to the laundry/bath facility, all employees are very helpful, everything was decent and well kept. Spot 316!

The beach is great here, surrounded on both sides by 'private' beaches. I hate private beaches, I feel the beaches should all be public!! Oh well. Anyway, first time here, we loved it. Nice level spots with cement. Lots of sand, and be careful of the stickers! Remove your shoes when you enter your RV or you'll be bringing them... More

Thank you for the compliments! We are directly between 2 residential neighborhoods (with signs stating they are private beaches. It helps that there are not so many people around us. There is a legal battle ensuing that will determine how far down to the water who owns what. We are longing for clarification on this too. To clarify the 'Beach... More

Dear Camp Gulf; Our group consisted of 12 people ,4 dogs, and 4 campers. Our sites were great (212 through 215) and the campground was very good! All of the staff workers were very helpful and friendly. We stayed for 10 days and only wish it would have been longer(Aug. 17th - Aug. 27th). We were also very impressed with... More

This was our second trip to Camp Gulf. Really enjoyed the beach. Campground is tight but not too bad considering where you are. The only complaint I have is that there were cigarette butts everywhere, even on the beach. Didn't seem like management cared about that or the fact that other people weren't cleaning u after there pets. We will... More

We are so glad you enjoyed the beach! Glad you will be back too! That's what we are here for. We do care very much about cigarette buts! Wish people would not smoke and if they do that they would not have the nasty habit of just throwing them anywhere. We are constantly picking them up, in fact every golf... More

Our family had a wonderful trip in Destin. We stayed in the new Sandcastle cabin. The cabin was very nice inside. We loved being able to step off the deck onto the beach. We enjoyed the view of the water until the camping spots in front of the cabin were occupied. Most of our view was of the back of... More

SO glad to hear that you had a Wonderful trip! This 3 week lull in August is the best time for us to do major maintenance on needed things. Schools start so early now most families are finished traveling for the summer. The new seawall area has been in the works for years. We have reinforced the old wall so... More

Arrival was super easy and had help with parking and getting settled. Very large park and yes alot of people. However, everything was very quiet and the bathrooms are clean, large and private. Beach was beautiful of course and stores are close.
