We were very impressed with this campground. We stayed over Christmas 2012 and we rented an RV site while my husband's family rented both condos. The RV park itself is fairly small with not too much space to each site, but it is immaculately kept with very pleasant and helpful staff and campers. It is fenced and gated so you will only find campers or staff in the resort. Each site has a small pretty concrete table and benches surrounded by shrubs which adds some privacy. Don't expect to set up games or a food tent as there is no room, but we didn't need it so it wasn't a problem. The condos were very nice, clean and well stocked. You have to climb a flight of steps to get there but the balcony overlooks the campground on on one side and the pool on the other, both of which are pleasant.

A very short walk leads to the gorgeous Miramar beach with gated access, and since it was winter, we could take our dogs. It was pretty quiet and we saw some spectacular sunsets.

A 15 minute walk took us to a large outlet mall, surrounded by restaurants and other stores.

We would definitely return if we came to this area again.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled with family

Dear Guest, Thank you for the many positive comments. We are always happy to read
compliments ! You were very diplomatic about the size of our sites. When the resort was
built the idea was to provide privacy and surround the guests with lush landscaping.
In the past 10 years the rigs have gotten bigger and bigger and the palm trees and shrubs
have gotten bigger too ! Almost daily we have to trim branches on sites when for instance,
a 45' 5th wheel with 4 slides pulls in. Our landscaping contractor is forever replanting and
reorganizing the grounds. Our pads are all 60' and many of our owners (sites are privately
owned) have extended the patios and added paving bricks to widen the spaces. The
nice part is we have shade for guests who just want to sit and relax ! Again, thanks for the
review ! DForsberg, Manager

I have to admit that this was our first family RV trip.
Last January we rented an RV in Tallahassee and immediately drove to Destin.
Check-in couldn't be less easier...
The neighbors were very friendly even though all the RV there look like those ones in the magazines...our wasn't :-(
They have a temperate pool and the shower-bathrooms were a great discovery when we realized that you haven't to shower always in the tiny RV shower.
The place was clean and gave you an excellent sense of security.
The best part was the access to the beach that is just a couple of blocks away. Excellent, transparent water, white sand beach. It was a good thing, specially from people that lives in Chicago.
The only minus is that you don't have grocery stores at walking distance....
I will be there again for sure...If I ever rent an RV again!!!
JRE

Room Tip: Try to get all the groceries before checking in...you don't have grocery stores nearby...

Dear Guest, Thanks for the review and Welcome to the World of RV vacations ! I well
remember when we bought our motorhome and drove to Destin 5 years ago. I had no
idea what I was in for ! Now, as the Manager, I have so much empathy for new RV'rs.
It can be quite a challenge on that first vacation. I'm glad you had a good experience and
it sounds like you plan to do it again. About the convenience to grocery stores and other
retail outlets, it all depends on how much you normally walk. The Winn Dixie & CVS is
approximately 1/2 mile away and are located in the same block as KFC, Taco Bell, and
Buster's Grill. You are right about the idea of stocking up before you arrive and set up.
This is just one of those things that you learn the first time out ! Congrats on a successful
vacation. Do come again. DForsberg, Manager
