Our site was sandy, many of the others were gravel. Besides that, it is a little gem! Only 40+ sites. It is a reasonable commute to the Santa Rosa beaches. We kayaked out in the bayou and the launch was excellent. We experienced the thrill of having stingrays fluttering around us! And there was a loon on the water. Would most definitel... more

“A hidden gem”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Great staff and sites were gravel and very level. A nice quite park and wish they had full hookup because we would have stayed longer. Close to Niceville and civilization, but did not get bothered by any highway noise. Also nice that your car pass will get you into Henderson Beach SP in Destin that gives you access to one of the mos... more

“RELAXING”

Reviewed Feb 20, 2018

Happened upon this fabulous park by accident. My hubby and I were thrilled to stay here. No reservation but one "walk up" spot -- #1 -- was available. Park voluteers and rangers were very helpful, kind, friendly! "People friendly" workers make the best impression! 😀 Our site was bordered by trees - so peaceful and quiet! Enjo... more

“Best State Park vs Cost ”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2018

At $16 per night plus fees, you cannot beat this lake state park. The spots are spacious, the utilities are clean and the people are friendly! Had site 14, backed in and was as level as i've ever been. Shower rooms are private, full bathroom and shower in one room. Includes a laundry setup with outdoor sink to wash dishes and soda mach... more

“Very nice place & we'll be back!”

Reviewed Feb 04, 2018

Overall Rating

We thoroughly enjoyed this campground. It is beautiful & well kept. Bathhouse was clean & nice with a dish sink & washers & dryers outside ($2.00). There is even a book & painted rock exchange. Sites are very nice. Spacious with plenty of trees & growth between for privacy.

Unlike the other reviewer, we had great Verizon coverage, usually at least 3 bars. The facilities and campsites were immaculately clean. The hosts and park employees were friendly and super helpful. The setting on the bayou is lovely, with some nice trails. We hiked, biked, and took our dog on these trails. The location is perfect if... more

“Great little campground, spotty 4g coverage”

Reviewed Jan 18, 2016

Overall Rating

We planned to stay here for 7 days but only ended up staying 2 nights because of the lack of a good Verizon 4G signal. We both work full time during the day and rely heavily on a solid signal. Even after using our Weboost 4g RV booster, it wasn't enough to satisfy our somewhat demanding needs for a solid internet connection. But bes... more
