We camped in the loop by the river. Not too crowded beautiful trees with moss hanging from them. We were able to moor our boat and leave it tied to the dock. The river is beautiful but beware there are alligators in it. We saw a six footer right next to the boat landing. You can fish from the pier surrounded but lush trees. There is a fish cleaning station at the end of the pier. We had grandchildren with us and they had a great time. Small hiking trail in our loop. We stayed at site 69 with lots of shade. No over the air channels could be received We camped at Fairview Riverside State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground was very nice, sites secluded from each other by brush and trees. Sites were wide and shady. Very quiet. It is on a bay and there are canoe and kayak rentals available. Usually a breeze and we didn't feel any mosquitoes. Bath house was clean and modern and had laundry area. No Wi-Fi and limited free TV stations. Grocery stores nearby. Free access to Henderson Beach state park in Destin, but it costs $3 to cross the toll bridge to get the the gulf park. We have stayed at Henderson Beach SP on the beach and like this park just as much. Will stay again in future. We camped at Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived on Memorial Day Weekend, the campground was full. There were mostly tents and very few rvs. The campsites are nice size and level. We had a buddy campsite in Laurel Ridge (#34) big enough for an RV and a tent. There was no bath house on our level and area. We had to descend about 2 stories of steps to get to the nearest bath house and wait to shower because there were only 2 shower stalls for lots of campers. The bath house was usually very messy. Saw a bear trying to get into the garbage cans by our campsite. After Memorial Day the campground cleared out quickly. The trails that we went on were beautiful and well kept. The scenery is very nice. We fished out of kayacks and the kids even caught some small brim. There is a small stream that runs close to the playground and the kids loved playing in the cool water. The beach and swimming area leaves something to be desired. We ate dinner at the lodge restaurant and the buffet was overpriced ($18) and not very good, the whole catfish was not fully cooked. There was no wifi signal that we could find. We camped here for 5 nights. We would camp here again. We camped at Unicoi State Park and Lodge in a Travel Trailer.
