    Great campground! Sites are secluded and well kept. Campground is located in an ideal area of Destin/Miramar Beach. Bathrooms have AC! Beach is beautiful, but it's quite a bit of a walk from the campsites to the shore. Bring a bike or cart to tote...More

    Is tent camping in July possible in Destin or on the Florida panhandle? Anywhere you can tent camp with an ocean breeze? Just for a few nights. I have electric fans and would probably spend much of the day at the beach. Basically I'm looking for shaded tent area, pretty close to a Florida panhandle beach with blue water, elec and water hook ups. IF camping in a tent anywhere on the panhandle in July is even possible without being complexity miserable at night. Warm is ok. Camped at the state park in Gulf Shores in late May, which was 70's, and know those yellow flies are awful! Is that an issue here? Will have plenty of big spray, if it works in July. It worked great there but was not swearing all day long. Some folks here say there is no shade for tent camping but the website makes it sound like the whole park is 'shady'. Any input? Anything else to do in the area? Shopping for those that want to? Water park? Bar with Pina Coladas? Would love to have more facts about tent camping before making the 6 hr trek from New Orleans! (Ideally would love to tent camp in fall but in summer rent a pop-up (or rv) with ac without spending an arm and a leg! Any info?) I see there is an 'rv share' site, but both parties have to have rvs. If there were an Airbnb swap/share with folks with an rv that would be awesome! Thanks for any advice!
