“wheelchair friendly”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

We loved this little camp. Nice big wheelchair accessible washrooms. My son has a tank chair to the beach and we were able to drive it over in the Van to the Ramada and they had "wide" beach ramps. There was a Volleyball Tournie going on so lots of activity for the Teens. Loved having the Marina beside us. Really reasonable, Catamaran $30 p/p, Pontoon Boot $125.00 for 5 hrs and you could take it over to the Sandbar. Also the doors were wide enough for us to ramp our son
in his wheelchair in. Sea doos $80 p/hr. We also enjoyed FudPuckers,although they weren't
going to serve us alcohol because they said they wouldn't accept our Canadian Drivers License as I.D. They said it was Florida law that we had to use Passports only. Which isn't true, it's
Government issued photo I.D. that is the law. Anyhow, they did come back later and said they'd
make an exception for us. This camp is soooo clean and tidy. Very cute! Nice little heated pool.
Great views of the bay. Loved it. Oh, and you can use the Ramada's Grotto, Waterfall pool.
Kids loved that as well.

Nice level pads but could be wider. Beach access with the Ramada resort across the street. Street is very busy 4 lane divided road, hard to cross when walking. Pedestrian bridge about 100 yards away. We drove our car to Ramada which worked fine. Hookups are all located for easy setup. We camped Monday to Friday during Easter week. Only heard music noise one night which was taken care of with ear plugs. Nice park with great beach/ pool access via the Ramada resort. We camped in a 45' tag axle diesel pusher.

My son and I stayed here for a week back in July. We are headed back again this July. It was the best camping experience that we ever had. The campground is well maintained and immaculate. Staff is friendly and helpful. The Ramada across the street was a perfect experience for my son. A short walk across the street althought we drove and parked. Plenty of parking. I found the campground to be close to everything that we wanted to do. The pool is super clean both at the resort and across the street at the Ramada. My son and I have found our yearly vacation place!!! We can't wait to return in a few months.

Destin West RV Resort is located on the bay side of Okaloosa Island between Destin and Fort Walton Beach. The resort is 4 miles west of downtown Destin. We camped here after most of the Spring Break traffic so traffic in the area wasn't bad at all. The RV sites were extremely clean and well maintained, and the property is beautifully landscaped. The staff in the office was extremely helpful and friendly with us with our our late check-in. Having access to the Ramada Inn Resort across the street was a nice amenity and easy to get to by either the walking bridge or by crossing over highway 98. There is even a little beach area at the back of the resort on the bay for laying out or reading. The grassy areas for walking the dogs are great as are the stocked poop bag stations. We could hear some of the music playing at the nearby restaurants/bars, but it became a non-issue after staying here for a few days. The only thing we were disappointed with was the poor Wifi service as the Wifi would hardly connect and when it did, it would only stay connected for about 1 minute. We were not able to use the internet on our phones or laptops for more than1 minute at a time, which was frustrating.

Room Tip: Recommend a site on the backside of the campground (opposite from the Fudpuckers).

Beautiful, clean RV resort. Berry got us checked in quickly. Beautiful pavers for pads. Trash picked up at your site at anytime during the day. We did not hear any of the loud music others reported, but we are further away from Fudpuckers than the previous poster probably was. Great grassy areas to walk dogs. Early this morning took the pups to the beach across the street. Very beautiful, peaceful. Will return!

This was our very first time camping near a beach. Spring Break with my two little boys all by myself. The location was great. The park was beautiful and clean, and the campsites were wide and long. This is my first camper (28' travel trailer) and it was my first time backing in to a spot! I did it on the first attempt because the angle was just right. Thanks for good planning of your campsite layout! The pool was nice, clean, lovely view of the bay. Very upscale place. We will definitely come back again. One suggestion: please consider adding stall walls around the first commode that we encounter when we enter the ladies bathroom at the pool. In order get to the private bath with shower, we have to pass by an open area commode. When we exit the shower, someone could be sitting there and have no privacy as we leave.

Starting with the name you would think the place is in Destin, it is not. It is about thirty minutes to the main area of Destin in traffic. Some of the staff was great, then you meet Barry. He was nice until I complained. The WIFI did not work at our site. I went to the office to get on the Internet and mentioned to Barry that for the cost of staying here the should work. He said that they have tried for a year to get it fixed and the reason it is not good is because the people in the park had to many gadgets. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday night the bar next to the park (about 70 feet from the first row of sites) have live bands from 9pm to 1:30 in the morning. It is so loud forget getting any sleep. I mentioned this to the office every morning. If these legit complaints had been referred to the owner or General Manager they must have been ignored. Finally on Monday I asked Barry if the owner of the park lived close enough to come down and hear how loud the music was and he told me that the owner knows how loud it is and it is my problem since this park is in a "resort" area". I should have expected the noise??? They tell you that you can use the facilities at the Ramada across the street for the pool, beach, etc. Well, the pool was not heated and there is a public beach next to the Ramada with a huge parking lot. We have been in RV Parks and Campgrounds in over 30 states in the last two years. This was our worst experience. I will look further south next year when we return. I use Tripadvisor all the time. Did not use it for this park as we were not able to get into the first three choices in Destin so this was a choice of last resort. If I had used this site I would have noticed how few reviews the people posting have as I have found that when there are only a few reviews by the people posting we have not always found then accurate.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the first row

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. Feedback like yours is important, as it helps us to identify areas of improvement.
As far as our location, we are on Okaloosa Island, which is a small island in between Destin and Fort Walton Beach. The resort itself is 4 miles west of downtown Destin. By car in moderate traffic the drive takes about 5-6 minutes. Of course, Destin is a large town, and depending on where you want to go, it can take 20 minutes or more to get there. We apologize that you were not pleased with our location. However, on our website and printed materials, we list our address clearly and the town is listed as Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
We are right across the road from the Ramada Plaza Beach Resort, which offers multiple pools. The Cabana pool is heated 24/7. I've spoken with the management staff at the Ramada, the Cabana pool has been heated all season with no interruptions. The Grotto pool is not heated however. Our Bayside pool is also heated seasonally for our guests, so there are two heated pools to choose from.
We are also a short walk to the Boardwalk, which is Okaloosa Island's family destination. There are multiple restaurants, places to shop and nightlife activities. There is public parking there as well. We are also adjacent to the Fishing Pier at Angler's and Florida's Gulfarium. There are so many things do to without ever needing to drive. It is a resort area, and we sincerely apologize that this type of park did not meet your camping expectations.
With regard to Wifi, we are in the process of adding routers because there is a bandwidth shortage at times. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you and any of our guests. The problem should be solved within the next 30 days or so.
The reason we have so few reviews on Tripadvisor is because we just started this page less than two months ago.

Thanks you again for your review and for your time.
Sincerely,
Destin West RV Resort
