In past decades, camping was a reasonable way to visit Florida and enjoy the beach. Over the last few decades, though, more and more of the coastline has been developed creating less and less access to camping near or on the beach.
However, in the Florida’s panhandle, just outside Pensacola, RVers can still find a little slice of paradise right between the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. The park is called Destin RV Beach Resort and they offer both RV sites and cabins situated right on the water.
Beach Front: Just like other beach accommodations, some of the RV sites are right on the water and others are not. In all it features 16 RV sites right on the sand and from which you can watch the waves roll along the shoreline.
They offer unmatched views 24/7. In fact, you can’t get any closer to the water. Sites are 20 feet wide and suitable for rigs of all size, but these sites offer water and electricity only. A honey-wagon service is available for an additional charge. (no pets).
Beach Sites: Just one row back from beach front, are RV sites that let you enjoy sand beneath your feet and the lulling sound of the waves. Sites feature a concrete patio perfect for grilling so plan to bring your grill. Picnic tables are provided. (Full hookup)
Upper Park Sites: These sites are situated close to the Activity Center and North toward the entrance of the camp. Close to the pools, laundry facilities, and activity center. (Full hookup)
North Upper Park Sites: Near the entrance of Camp Gulf, these sites are the farthest from the beach but still walking distance. They are conveniently located near the north pool, office, and the camp store.
Things to Do
Camp Gulf offers rental items to help you have fun and enjoy your stay. Golf carts are available for daily or weekly rentals. Beach carts with balloon wheels are available to get through the sand, or you may want to try a Segway to get around. Yolo boards, wagons, and pedal carts are also available for rent.
Camp Gulf has been ranked one of the top RV parks in America by the Travel Channel. It offers old-fashioned fun at the beach and is a great place to build memories.
