“Sweet spot!”

Such a pretty little spot and tomorrow we're going out tour with a guide on his pontoon boat on the lake. I love the grassiness and the little ponds with the fountains in the bridges. It is the coziest little place with lots of space between rv's. The people in town are fantastically friendly.

This place is an unknown gem. The park is set in an area of native pine with a pond or lake next to it. It is well managed by on-site manager W.E. and the county. Great place to stage outings to the Dead Lakes. Water and electric. Two dump stations. Laundary. Clean rest rooms. Don't be surprised to see major enlargement of this facili... more

“One big flaw...”

I really wanted to love this park - it's a bargain, it's clean, it's pretty, it has a couple of laundry machines, but in the end we were so annoyed by our neighbors' fire pit that it over-shadowed all that. The campground loop was tight and I didn't look at every site, but our and the one next to us had fire pits that were way too clos... more

Small rv and tent campground with huge benefits. A tight loop but super quiet. Elec, water, dump station, bath houses, laundry, boat launch, walk paths, park setting..what more do you need. Friendly host is the best! Next trip south we'll be here for the paddling again for sure.

My husband and I wanted to go down to the coast from Tallahassee for a few days over President's Day weekend, but all the state parks were full. After reading the reviews here, we decided to give Dead Lakes a try. We camped in a large, pretty level site in the tent area a little away from the RV's. Although the main bathrooms are a ... more

“Quiet, Beautiful, Surprising!”

Reviewed Feb 01, 2017

Overall Rating

We were totally surprised by this site. It's beautiful, very clean, and well taken care of. There's showers and fountains in the ponds. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere, so if you're looking for somewhere quiet, this is your spot! Panama City is a 30 minute drive. We've done day adventures to Panama City and Cape San Blas.

On the recommendation of the Hendricks we stayed 2 nights here on our way west through Florida. Great place to hang out and we could even put up our hammock! Sites can be a bit un-level but we managed okay.

This place is first come first serve. It's in a small town and I honestly didn't expect it to be much, since it was only $15, but man was I wrong! It's beautiful! Super clean and big! They have a small pond that anyone can fish in (without a license) and a boat ramp just around the corner. I would highly recommend that you go out with ... more
