This place was everything I had hoped for and more. The beaches and water were stunning as expected. Stay in Shady Pines loop. It is clearly the nicer loop, more vegetation, more privacy, more "nicer" than gulf breeze loop.. Beach is only 75yards away, it's a very short wlk on the boardwalk. Wildlife is amazing. Saw armadillo, deer, crabs, dolphins, hemit crabs, clams, fish, and birds that dive into the water to catch fish. Zero city lights so you can see the milky way. No crowds. And the campers' Gulf beach area is just for the campers and not general public, so very private. It was an amazing place!
Bathrooms are fine. We had a paved site, but most are gravel. I went thinking that civilization was 30+ miles away. However there is a family owned general store (Trading Post) that is only a few miles from camp grounds. It has everything including fresh produce. Fresh pizza they make at a very reasonable price. It's like a mini-Walmart. We even purchased our boggie boards there. Attached to the same building is an ice cream and coffee shop. It serves Edy's ice cream. There are a few other food options within a few miles, so you are not alone as some would have you believe. The park itself has a concession store, however we never made it to the store, it apparently had food and supplies available.
We will definitely be back. We camped in a travel trailer.
