    St. Andrews State Park Campground, near Panama City, FL, is a gem for anyone looking to enjoy the great outdoors with a touch of comfort. This place is open all year round and offers a mix of tent, RV, and yurt accommodations. The campground is right on the water, providing stunning views and easy access to some of the best beaches around.

    Visitors rave about the clean bathrooms and full hook-ups, making it a convenient spot for both short and extended stays. The park is big rig friendly, and you can even bring your pets along. If you’re into fishing, you’ll love the access to beaches and jetties where you can cast a line. There are also plenty of trails for walking and biking, and you might even spot some deer wandering through your campsite.

    One of the standout features is the jetty area, which is perfect for families with young kids. The shallow water and minimal waves make it a safe and fun spot for little ones to play. Just remember to bring your own chairs and umbrellas, as rentals can be pricey.

    Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

    Welcome to Topsail Hill Preserve State Park Topsail Hill is named for its dunes, which rise like a ship's sails over soft sand beaches and the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

    Those same white quartz dunes are responsible for a rare coastal ecosystem — freshwater dune lakes — which teem with aquatic wildlife. Walkers will pass through old-growth pine forests, sandy scrubland, dunes and wetlands, where they may see some of the 13 imperiled species that find refuge here, like the Choctawhatchee beach mouse and otherworldly-looking pitcher plants.

    Topsail Hill offers three miles of pristine beaches and is a bird-watching and hiking paradise.

    Miramar Beach, Florida

    In 1937, our grandmother took her first trip to the panhandle of northern Florida and found pristine beauty in the crystal white beaches and the aqua blue waters. This unforgettable experience prompted her to take many more trips to South Walton with her family over the years. In 1968, our family's love for the area culminated with the purchase of this property, and we have been operating as a campground ever since.

    South Walton has experienced a tremendous transformation over the decades, but our goal of sharing this area with our guests has never wavered. Whether you have been staying with us for years, or if you have never visited us before, we are excited for you to experience the same beauty that captivated our grandmother over 85 years ago!

    Welcome to Point Washington, a charming campground nestled in the heart of Florida's beautiful wilderness. This spot is perfect for those who appreciate a mix of rustic charm and natural beauty. Located near the scenic 30A area, it's a short drive to the beaches, making it an ideal base for both forest and beach lovers.

    Point Washington offers a peaceful retreat with a variety of camping options, including tent and RV sites. The campground is divided into two main areas, each with its own unique appeal. Campground 1 is known for its quiet atmosphere and spacious sites, where you can park right at your spot. It's a bit more secluded, offering a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle. On the other hand, Campground 2 boasts stunning lake views and easy access to the water, perfect for those who enjoy a scenic backdrop and a gentle breeze.

    One of the standout features here is the access to Eastern Lake. Whether you're into kayaking, canoeing, or just enjoying the view, the lake provides a serene setting for your outdoor adventures. The campground also has a small dock, making it easy to launch your watercraft.

    For those who love to explore, Point Washington has several well-maintained trails. The Eastern Lake bike/hike trail offers loops of varying lengths, from 3.5 to 10 miles, catering to both casual walkers and avid hikers. The trails are part of the Florida Forest Service's Trailwalker Hiking Program, so you know they're top-notch.

    While the amenities are basic—think pit toilets and picnic tables—the natural beauty and tranquility more than make up for it. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars. Just remember to bring your own water and be prepared for the rugged forest roads, especially if it’s been raining.

    Overall, Point Washington is a gem for those looking to disconnect and immerse themselves in nature. Whether you're here for the lake, the trails, or just the peace and quiet, you're in for a treat.
