This is by far the best campground we've visited
Very well maintained campground. Sites are large with split rail fencing around each site. Restrooms are very clean. Family showers are also available, which is very helpful with little kids. Park has boating ramp to the bayou. Close to beaches in Destin, yet away from the hustle and bustle. Park rangers, gated entry after dark, and campground hosts make this park safe and enjoyable for families. Rules are strictly enforced.
This is a very cute little park. We visited on our way home from the beach. The sites themselves are fairly nice sized and have plenty of room for a couple cars and several tents. They don't have a ton of privacy but they are definitely spaced out enough. The bathrooms are clean and they even have a space to do laundry. Although we only had a chance to do one short trail the park has several nature walks that show you some of the unique wildlife of the area. There are also several great picnic/group areas and a play ground so this campground is well worth checking out if you need a place to stay in the area. The only downside is the hot and humid weather but this is sort of unavoidable unless you go in the winter months.
Rented a kayak from the campground with a friend. Spent most of the day exploring the bayou. Pretty sure we spotted a bald eagle but didn't have binoculars to confirm.
Campsite had shade and the campgrounds weren't to crowded. Located near several trails with ample interpretive signs.
We stayed here only for a few days while visiting family in Niceville but it was an awesome campground and would definitely go back. Our site was across from Rocky Bayou and the facilities were great. Hookups, restrooms, laundry, playground, etc. It was well shaded and sites were level with gravel/ pavement. Would like to go kayaking there next time now that we have some.
