Beautiful & Quiet

We stayed for 4 nights. There were people in & out only staying a night or two. It is very quiet, the beach is nice (there are 2 gators that live on the other side of the lake), the bathrooms are clean, the shower was decent & the host was great! The sites are all HUGE (the outer ring is better than the inner), they are all close to the bathroom & more than enough privacy. You MUST reserve your site either online or by calling & the prices listed on the board are NOT correct. It is now $20 a night for non electric/water site and $30 for water/electric

Very pretty

Private maybe one person will drive down the road but they turn around pretty fast with out a problem nice back country campground

Small... but it’s the beach!

*This campground is currently under renovation post-hurricane and is taking walk-in camping only, no reservations.

My cousin was in from Germany and had always heard about Panama City Beach… we are campers at heart so we went to the nearest campground! However it’s a very short drive to PCB if you have someone along that wants to see the city…

Now, there are two beach areas. One is on the gulf, and one is between the gulf and the bay. The gulf water is a lot choppier but clearer, and the swimming in the spot by the bay is much calmer HOWEVER the purple flag was up and we got eaten alive by jellyfish (as did many others). There is a boat ramp on the bay side.

The sites are all VERY different. Some are tiny, some are huge. Some have waterfront and many don’t. We booked late and got a very small (although not the smallest) site. If you want a good spot once they reopen, definitely book early and pay attention to the measurements on the website.

There is also a nature trail with a freshwater swamp (featuring gators, of course). We saw lots of other wildlife around, including deer and rabbits.

Hot but beautiful

We took this trip mid summer, and it was ridiculously hot. There was no coastal breeze, in fact there was no breeze at all. The playground was nice but the equipment was too hot to touch.

Luckily we cooled off in the Blue Hole… which, let me warn you, is ICE cold all year long. It felt amazing and the kids loved it!

There are a few hiking trails that are nice, including one with a cave tunnel. The cave itself is wonderfully cool, and although it isn’t very big, it is still quite beautiful. It was easy to navigate for those that are looking to see what a cave looks like without the full crawling and spelunking experience.

The little shop at the cave tours was well stocked (including ice cream!). There is also a museum that gives lots of information about the cave and the area in general; on Sunday they had a reptile/wildlife presentation.

The restrooms were large and clean. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Overall would definitely go back… just during a different time of year!

Need to go back

This beautiful, and historic Park is one I'd like to revisit. My husband and I spent only one night there, as a pit stop along a long drive between South Florida and Texas.

We were so impressed with the beautiful nature around us. Admittedly, we didn't have time to go into the caverns this trip, and therefore need to go back when we can. We did get to hike around the grounds a bit, and enjoyed every minute of it.

We chose a tent site, which required a very short hike from our car. This is the first time we had done that, and although the city side of us may worry around our car and it's contents, it sure made us feel more in the woods than we were. It was quiet and beautiful, having a campfire surrounded by nothing but sky-high trees.

They did experience damage from Hurricane Michael, but I plan on revisiting once things are repaired!

Pets Welcome!

It's a great place to camp for a night or stay long term.

Rustic and beautiful

Great camp ground. Pretty falls.

It was the best of times...no, seriously, no worst, just best!

This park is AWESOME for families!! Great campground, Perfect beach for multiple generations of families. The jetties are great for snorkeling, the beach side is wonderful for sunsets and walks. Fishing is good, and the livin’ is easy!

Great park

The only reason I’m not giving it a 5 star rating is due to our very unlevel campsite. The park is small and the campsites are pretty separate because of the woods in between. The bathrooms were very clean and seemed fairly new. The Blue Springs are part of the campground which makes it nice for scouting manatees, fish and birds.

Out of the way.

Clean restroom, great host, and good fishing.

Simply breathtaking

Easy access, great variety of fish species, lots of places to explore!

Everything You Need

I like to kayak in calm waters. There was plenty of that. I also like to camp on the water. Which was perfect. I do like the gulf side to look for shells & sit. It wasn’t far. Also I like to see wild life. The deer around were practically tame.

too noisy

stayed for a weekend with co workers. never again. interstate noise is too loud. will choose another spot over this.

Quiet with a beautiful view

We stayed for the weekend. Our camper was located directly on beautiful Lake Seminole. The campground is spacious with full hook up to include sewer, water and electric. There was plenty of room for parking.

I did not use the facilities so I can't comment on them. I do think the grass could have been mowed a little more recent.

Great State Park

A Florida State Park that reminds us of the foothills of North Carolina except for the occasional palm tree. Toured the Gregory House a cotton plantation house that was moved across the river by the CCC. We made a trip into Chattahoochee, FL for lunch and a look at the Jim Woodruff Dam where The Chattahoochee, Apalachicola and Flint Rivers converge.

Quiet, friendly, clean, and the ranger was extremely nice and helpful.

When plugging into electric, if you need a 20 amp, it is at an angle. It can be easily missed. Ranger was very helpful with issue. lesson learned. Will go back.

Great for beach.

Large campground with many shady sites. Great place for a bike. Quite a few people had golf carts. Nice, clean restrooms. Shuttle for beach.

Quiet and Remote

This is a small quiet remote camp ground. The camp ground is on Lake Seminole north of Booster Club. The sites are grass, offer water and electric with a dump station on exit.

They have full bath and showers available with a camp host.

The fishing here is great, but no swimming

Hiking is Great

The hiking in this state park camp ground is really nice. You have some hills to navigate and it can be strenuous.

The RV spots are close together but have water and electric.

Beautiful and Quiet

We love to stay at Seminole State Park. I highly recommend reserving a spot on the water. The view is lovely. The restrooms are clean and you are able to rent both canoes and kayaks.

Great beach camping

Grest place to park your rv or travel trailer near everything.

Taste of hike in camping!

Very clean with hike in camp sites over looking river! Beautiful!

Beautiful, Peaceful,

There are 2 different camps in the forest. Sand pond, which has hookups for water and electric, very nice, well maintained and enjoyable. Then there is Primitive camping- absolutely the best way to reconnect with nature, enjoy the natural forest and all natural amenities. Absolutely loved being out in primitive. 3 sites total along pine log creek, approx. 1/2 mile apart. Cannot wait to go back!!!!

It was vety nice.

Waterfront sites, pull-thru sites, clean bathrooms. Will definitely stay again.

Love at third Glance

This was a beautiful campground! Lots of trees and right on the lagoon. Deer will walk right up to your spot and there is plenty of space to walk and ride bikes. They also have many activities offered. The bathrooms are basically clean to be beach bathrooms. Lots of hooks and shelves in the shower stalls to hold your belongings. The spot we had was way too hot with no trees but there were plenty of trees around most of the sites. The walk to the beach is quite a distance but there is plenty of parking at the beach and it is BEAUTIFUL!! We will be back!!

Wonderfull!!

Love this Campground! Animals are all over this park and most are not skittish, but don't feed them. They have mutiple bath houses and camping spots with bay access! There is about 3 camp stores. The beach is located on the campground. they have two fishing peirs one on bay side and one ocean side. There is also a wonderful snorkeling area! this camp ground is a wonderful one for old and young!

Nice developed campground

Lovely campground! They had just done a controlled burn about 2 weeks before we were there so everything looked like fall!

Beautiful and quiet shady sites

Water and electric at RV sites and a dump station. Stunning lake view

Little piece of heaven right at home

We are very partial to this park! Beautiful views of the lake. Great for primitive camping or rv/camper. They also have cabins that you can rent. Very busy during the summer months but quiet during the fall and winter.
