We stayed in the private beach house and the beach is literally your back yard. The campground itself is so well maintained and packed with things to do. They have thought of every possible amenity and provided a lot of them free of charge. We especially liked the fact that we could go to the air station and blow up... More

Enjoyed our 1 week in site 705, one row off the beach. Wifi was good, bathrooms are excellent, water was not so good, staff was excellent, we had to deal with the order of the honey wagon. Pool was clean and felt awesome. The sites are close but if you want to camp on the ocean this is the place.

Upon a friends recommendation, we decided to take our camper to Destin and stay at Camp Gulf. From the time you arrive there are guys there to help you get settled in. We took our polaris, which we were happy someone suggested that. Our site was 305, closer to the road, but wouldn't have changed a thing. There was a... More

We stayed in a cabin and my parents stayed in their RV. The RV spot was right on the beach! Cabin was clean, convenient and SUPER CUTE! The loft was big enough for an air mattress, but def bring a small fan for up there. There was a private bedroom with its own a/c, ceiling fan & tv. The bed... More

Best campground we have ever been to! Love, Love, Love this place! We have already booked for next year! Our spot was beachfront, but all of the spots are great! The pools are amazing and very clean! Can't wait to come back!

This is our second time to go to camp gulf. It's wonderful. There a lot of people working there to help you find your RV site and help you park. Everyone there is having a wonderful time. It is very clean and very organized. It is beautiful. The sand is very white and the water is so clear and beautiful.... More

We have been staying here for the last 5 years on our annual trip to the Florida gulf coast. The one reason we keep coming back is that you can't get any closer to the beach with your RV. The staff are friendly and helpful. The park overall needs to be freshened up a bit and needs some TLC. Wifi... More

The sugar sand and crystal clear Gulf are the definite draw. The sites are clean and the staff very helpful. The pools are awesome and the public bathrooms are pristine. The sites have plenty of room but you are very close to other sites in some parts of the camp. You will be so glad you stayed here.

My family and I just stayed 4 nights at Camp Gulf and had a great time. We originally booked 1 camp site on the beach several months ago, but just a few weeks ago we had had a need to get a second camp site. During the peak of summer they did not have a second site for 4 nights,... More

we waited 9 months for our vacation. Website portrayed the park to be beautiful. We were so disappointed upon our arrival. We had no shade at all. Most of the sites were not maintained. Our site was dangerous. The pavement and the sand did not meet causing several collisions with the concrete. There were caterpillars that secreted some kind of... More
