Our first stop, Grayton Beach. Beautiful location. White sandy beaches and turquoise water. Convenient access to beach only a 5 minute walk. Very clean facilities, friendly staff and cozy pads. We lucked out and snagged a concrete pad right next to the showers. We can’t wait to get back here next year. Pickings are slim these days. #covid
Great site and beautiful lake view on site 16. Access to the beach was a bonus (most public beach access are closed due to covid19). They have convenient kayak and paddle board rentals at the beach access for the lake. They also have a great nature trail that offers wonderful views of the sand dunes. Very close to seaside and some great restaurants if you don’t feel like cooking. Site had a picnic table and metal fire ring with flip over grill surface for cooking. They sold ice and firewood at the entrance (locked after office closes for the night). Book early and check site availability often this place stays pretty busy. Bathrooms were clean and serviceable.
You can reserve campsites in Florida state parks 11 months in advance, but I don’t plan that far ahead! We lucked out and snagged a coveted site on the lake due to a last-minute cancellation. Sites are generous and private with many trees separating the sites and it is a very quiet campground. The bathrooms/showers were clean, although the paths to them were a little jungle-like. Canoe and kayak rentals available although we did not use them. It would have been nice to have bike rentals available at the campground, but they are available in town. We walked into the town of Grayton Beach for lunch. Nice white sand beach but not as flat and walkable as others (our calves let us know the next day that this was a vigorous walk)! Because we have a camper van, aside from beach walking, there was not much else for us to do here without dismantling our camper and driving.
Just expanded the number of campsites, kayak and SUP rentals on site. From the campsites to the beach you’ll want to drive or ride a bike. Clean bathroom and outside showers out the beach.
This is perhaps my favorite campgrond. At the beach, but not on the beach. If you get the right campground, you'll be right up on the lake (watch out for aligators) but no matter where you camp, there's easy hiking access to the sugar white sands of the Florida panhandle. Paradise.
Another beautiful campground near the gorgeous gulf!
I stayed 2 nights last winter before it got crowded. cool little camp ground amidst the hustle and bustle of a busy beach town. I was tent camping and had a nice site that backed up to marsh land.
We have camped at Grayton a few times and each time has been awesome! The campsites are very well kept as well as the bathroom facilities. The beach is beautiful there. Our kids would much rather come here than Mexico beach or Panama City. The staff is also wonderful! Always very helpful and friendly.
this is by far best in Florida state parks. place has the best beach. reserve at least 10 months ahead
Excellent & very scenic location for kayaking, camping, enjoying the beach, AND snorkeling! Friendly staff, & very clean restrooms. Day use admission is free through the month too.
