“Big Rig Friendly!”

Reviewed Feb 13, 2019

Overall Rating

We took a chance and went with some information that we could fit in site #4, which was booked, so we hoped for #5. Big rigs can definitely fit in site #3, 4 and 5. Though there is a tree in each site, you can still get in, and park your truck or tow vehicle next to you. Sites are wide. The road coming in is 5 miles of red sandy dirt. ... more

My GPS didn't want to take me there at first, coming up 87 from the south. Eventual I drove far enough north that my GPS routed my correctly. It was trying to take me down an off limits base dirt road rather than the dirt roads that are open to the public. This CG is fantastic as a no frills spot. I have solar panels & even in Janu... more

“Great, clean, free waterfront campground!”

Reviewed Nov 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Clean, picnic tables, waterfront, fire pits, portable potties. Quiet neighbors. A few other campers here. Beautiful drive in on a well-maintained dirt road. No issues getting in or out. Not sure how it would be if raining. :)

We only stayed one night, but we really enjoyed our short time here and will definitely return.

BEAUTIFUL area. Worth the drive. Bayside is more crowded than the Bayou side.. Absoulutely STUNNING sunsets. Definitely walk your spot before driving in. We found many broken bottles.

Reviewed Mar 23, 2018

Great campground by the bay. Partial shade great beach and very helpful manager. Permit required. Many sites empty each night because people make reservations and then don’t show up! A real shame.
Good dirt road in (4.7 miles) but stray onto verge with large RV, we saw one get stuck.

Very nice small campground with beautiful views of Blackwater Bay for “free” :) Great place to relax, walk on the beach (in low tide), and watch the sunsets. There are a couple of short trails (1/2 mile each) All primitive sites have fire rings and picnic tables; there are portable toilets and bear-proof trash cans. No potable ... more

This is a great free spot in the panhandle of Florida. It is about 25 mins from Navarre and Santa Rosa island. Site number 4 is the biggest and probably the best chance for generating solar. The nats are bad when there is no wind, luckily there is usually a breeze keeping them away. Like others have said, make sure to reserve a spo... more

Having come from Grayton Beach and Navarre Beach, I'd say this view was way better. And free! Fire rings, picnic tables, porta potty, and we'll defined and fenced in camping area. The view of the water is amazing. You basically have to wait until low tide to walk the small beach but it's worth the wait. There are also a couple of ... more
