This is a great quiet park. Very friendly and easy going group. We will stay here again anytime we are in the area. We spent a month here in April. Temperatures were great. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is on the lake and appears to have good access. My initial reaction was this was a residential park with just a few transient spots to rent out on a short term basis. Lots of modular housing both owned and for rent. We were just looking for a one night stay and probably would stay somewhere else next time in the area. The spots were tightly packed and grass RV pads which were not level, but not too bad. If you are here for the lake, probably a good spot. It was completely full on a Friday night in mid-April. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed there for 2.5 months. We were to leave in December, 2018, but had an accident while driving our truck (the fifth-wheel was in the resort). The office staff quickly helped to resolve our problem, calling the future tenants of our site and transferring them to another site in order to keep us in the same site (we couldn't move our fifth-wheel due to our truck having to be towed to the repair shop). Our truck was in the shop for four weeks, and staff at Sunset King couldn't be more supportive and helpful. I wish all parks/resorts were this well run and helpful. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart is a few miles away, but there is a Piggly-Wiggly closer by (good fried chicken). Crestview is about 30 miles away. We stayed here in Defuniak Springs while getting all of our Florida residency paperwork done in Crestview, through MyRVMail there. The office staff at Sunset King are all great. Tons of activities: bingo, lunches, church services, evening dinners, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas activities. Santa was there for pictures with the kids and pets.

This park is huge! Very crowded with lots of children playing outside. A lot of tiny mobile homes, permitted residents. It seems to be managed very good, & appears clean. I didn’t research this one very good before we got here, or we would have gone on to another place. RV spaces are mostly sunny. We did have a concrete pad with an old picnic table. I’m not saying this is a bad place to stay it is just not for us. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed one nite, location is very quiet and perfect for a one nite stay. Lots of seasonal and park models. We were put in a deluxe site though we only asked for a regular pull thru site. We were charged for the deluxe site. Sites are VERY tight, you can reach out and touch your neighbors rig. We were never able to connect to the wifi even after calling the office. Many young children unattended by adults both at the lake and in the streets playing. This is not a fault of the campground. Nice walk down to the lake and office staff was very friendly. We would stay again for one nite while passing thru the area. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a real nice park in a rural area of the Florida Panhandle not far from Interstate 10. The staff was very courteous and friendly at check in. Many snowbirds at this location in February and we could see why. Well maintained facilities. It is in many ways like many fish camps I have visited, but it is a very nice one. The hedge alongside our site separating us from our neighbors complicated our positioning and hookup a little. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We just started snowbirding and are delighted with this park. It is very clean, feels safe, and offers a lot of activities for the 55+ set. The $17/nt rate reflects the $520 monthly rate, which includes electric, water, cable, and Wifi. I would have rated the park higher if the WiFi was a bit more reliable. And a word to the wise: if you plan to stay here for all or part of the winter, better put your deposit in by late summer. It fills up fast. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed for a month at $520.00. Don't let the distance from I-10 deter you. You won't b disappointed with facility or the staff. The surrounding area is quiet but in 15 minutes you have access to all major shopping. Wifi was excellent. Site had picnic table on concrete pad. Will stay here again.

Good value. The manager and his wife are friendly, helpful and welcoming host managers. Our site was spacious, level and clean. Paved roads. Cable was good. WiFi good but spotty at times. Lake view is lovely. It is not good for swimming or boating. Pool is not heated. We did not use the hot tub. Good Sunday brunches. Activities are more geared to the older senior.. card games, holey board, etc,,, just starting to introduce line dancing. Residents are friendly. When we were there many clumps of leaf fires creating smoke. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at Sunset King. Like many others, we were dodging hurricane Irma and ended-up staying for longer than we anticipated. The management went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and did a good job despite being at near 100% capacity. We were given a couple of free meals, a bag of ice from time to time, and one elderly couple (who only had a pop-up camper) was allowed to sleep in one of the buildings the night the storm passed through. I highly recommend Sunset King; good people and nice amenities. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Needed a place near Crestview to land while establishing Florida residency through RVMail. Very clean and well maintained property. Nice lake to fish in from the docks. Pool was always clean. About 25 min. to town, which is quite interesting with it's historical buildings. 45 min. to beautiful 30A beaches and activities. Management and staff were kind and helpful. Residents were all friendly. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Ed's for fried chicken. Prettiest and most convenient beach accesses were Blue Mountain and Fort Panic. Best springs are Ponce de Leon and Morrison.

I read the other reviews and completely disagree with most of them. The bathrooms are disgusting with mold on the ceiling and the showers are covered in it. The dock is outright dangerous, get a tetanus shot. The manager(s) are rude and inconsiderate and love to flaunt their authority. Big heads for a park that needs a lot of work. I have photos and video evidence to prove. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you consider Wal-Mart a shopping destination.. No stores worth mentioning. Some of the gas stations in the area i suggest dont go alone. Lots of half naked, tatood guys who stare at people fully clothed

We used Sunset King as a one night stop-over on our way west. It's about 10-15 minutes off of I-10, which is a bit of a draw-back. Friendly staff was able to direct us to a nice pull-though for the night. Cable and Wi-Fi worked just fine. No transient spots on the lake; this seem to be for cabins and full-timers. Small store sells essentials, ice, etc. Pets OK. A good place for a longer stay, but you could probably find something more cost effective if you are looking for just one night.

Older park with many snow birds. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Big rig access with no problems getting to park from HWY 10. Older bathhouse. Small kids park and small dog run. Free park wifi 1-2 meg download speed max. AT&T 3-5 meg max. Level to gentle slope on most of the larger sites. Sites are situated so that your neighbor pulls in from opposite side of street, passenger sides of both rvs facing utilities. I did not mind because the front yard area is larger this way. Would return again. We camped at Sunset King RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
