Large state park pn gulf of Mexico. Plenty of trails for hiking. Biking. Beach is far from parking lot...about 3/4 mile. Tram is available to transport passengers. Runs every 30 minutes. Dunes are protected. Among the most beautiful in US.

Several miles of state-owned white sand beach. No hassles from folks who think they own the beach or beach chair vendors who likewise think they own the beach. Just a quiet place to catch some rays. Access to the beach is free in the summer...More

We enjoyed our stay at Topsail for 2 nights. The beach is amazing - hardly anyone there! And its walkable - meaning not a lot of erosion. The bathhouse is a hike but, it is clean. This is a very quiet campground - almost too...More

Unquestionably one of the best Florida State Parks that we have visited. Well laid out - quiet - clean - well maintained

This was our 3rd trip to Topsail. Had a wonderful trip. This campground always lives up to a perfect place. Our campsite was located in the older section (front). This was a great vacation. Beautiful beach

We had never been to Toosail and had heard good things about this place. It did not disappoint. What a spectacular beach. Open, expansive and only few people on a Monday. Check it out.

We have stayed here many times through the years. For the last few, the park is being allowed to deteriorate. Minamal and poor repairs and no enforcement whatsoever. Cars parked on the grass killing it, many campers put rugs and tents off the pads also...More

Our family loves TopSail Beach -it is simply. Raitiful, quiet and untouched. The water truly describes the Emerald Coast! It’s always fun riding the tram down to the beach and walking down to the beach on the Boardwalk. It’s never crowded and the scenery is...More

Fairly quiet as we were tent campers. The staff and volunteers are extremely helpful and friendly. It would be great to have ceiling fans in the restroom/ showers as the sticky air does not move in them at all. The biking areas are great and...More
