We got here expecting a free spot, but weren’t surprised when a police officer pulled up. He explained that they are under pressure to enforce 30$/ night by the people of the town. There’s a pay box with envelopes for people who drop their boats in where we put our money. It’s not bad if you’re tired of driving. Can walk to little shop... more

“Convenient, quiet and real. ”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2018

Overall Rating

As suggested, we parked parallel to river. Beautiful sunrise. 2 other trailers joined us for the night. No issues. Highly recommend The Dive Bar & Oyster City Brewing for beer and, since Hole in the Wall seafood closed early, we tried the Owl Cafe Pub. Great gator creole and Salad with shrimp. Apalachacola has a real, fun salty vibe. ... more

“Fun, Free Boondocking ”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2018

Hope to end some confusion about the paid/not paid site. This is really not Battery Park it is next to it in a gravel lot along the river. When we pulled in there was another Class A motor home parked along side the grassy area.. We parked parallel to the river. We asked the other couple if they were staying there for the night ... more

“Apalachicola Bay Front Row View”

Reviewed Mar 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Some Campendium reviews state Battery Park in downtown Apalachicola is not free and I suppose it depends on what time of year and who is patrolling the area. We pulled into a large grassy area and set up our dry camp. Before sundown a boat-living neighbor who I had met years ago named Jerry stopped by to inform me I might want to pul... more

“This is not a free site.”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2017

Overall Rating

We did not camp here. We parked and walked into town. We ran into a police officer and asked him about overnighting here since there seemed to be some conflicting reports here about whether or not is was legit. He told us that it is not free. The charge is $30 for overnight parking for self contained RVs only, and limited to one night ... more

“Great spot on the water and walking distance from night life”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a really nice spot right on the water where the river meets the bay. It is basically a big open lot area where people park their boat trailers. The lot is below the bridge but you don't hear much traffic noise. There is quite a bit of traffic in this area due to boaters and other people just coming to the park to walk on the... more

“nice & free overnight”

We stayed here as an overnight stop (but didn't leave until 1pm the next day). There is a fairly large grassy area and a gravel parking lot next to a marina. Number of cars are parked here overnight and probably for a number of nights/days at a time, presumably while the owners are out on their boats. One 18-wheeler was parked on the g... more

We originally planed to stay here a little over a week, but lost interest in the area after a few days. Its a nice little town, just didn't capture us. We didn't look over the previous reviews map very well and parked in kind of in the middle of the of the main field. We were never questioned or bothered by the local authorities, even ... more
