Overall a very nice campground. The sites are a bit tight and it's rather pricey. The folks that work there are very nice and helpful. The sites are well landscaped and if you want to spend $10 a night more, you can get one of the bay front sites. Pool was small but clean. We'll be back. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice older park, The sites are a bit short and narrow for today's rigs with slideouts. Sites are level and the hookups are in the right area. The landscaping is quite well done and shopping and such is very close by. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The park beach on Santa Rosa Sound is great for kids and the Gulf is less than 2 miles away with lots of free parking. We would stay there again. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a great time at this park. Very clean and very neat. I would encourage you to spend the extra $10 for the ocean view--it's a beautiful place to sit and look over the ocean. Plus that makes it feel like you have more room because you can sit behind your camper/RV on the grass. If you chose not to have waterfront, then it's $45 a night. There are concrete patios and picnic tables. The pool was clean as well. The only reason I rated this an 8 was because we were charged $4 per kid per day. We weren't even there 48 hours, yet had to pay $16. A little pricey when you spend your whole time on the beach. Wal-Mart is 1.3 miles away. Staff was friendly, beach was clean. They have tiki umbrellas and lounge chairs for relaxing on on the beach. The water never gets above waist level for quite a ways out. Really a nice place. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is very clean, most of the sites are very level. They are concrete with a gravel area to the side for your toad or TV. We had a back in site on the side, and these are a little close. The interior roads are asphalt. Staff was very nice. The pool was unheated but we braved it anyway. The private beach (300') is great for younger kids as it is on the Santa Rosa Sound and not the Gulf. As mentioned before, you can walk several hundred feet out and still be at waist level. Our kids had a great time digging in the sand, looking in the water for fish, hermit crabs, shells, etc. They have covered lounge chairs on the sand and on the deck. Another plus was that they allowed washing of vehicles and rigs here. Not many campgrounds we've found, allow this. They even have two large hose reels you can borrow if you're not parked right on one of the many well water spigots. I didn't agree with the extra $4 charge per person over 2 for each day. I don't understand their reasoning, except that they are a nice campground and much cheaper than the private parks in Destin so they can get away with it. If you pay for 6 nights, you get the 7th free. I would recommend an end site ($5 more) or the beach front sites, IF you have rear windows and/or like to sit outside. Otherwise the beach sites are very close together. Site 65 is the best in the park but it gets reserved up to a year+ in advance. Next time, we'd definitely try to state at Henderson State Park or TopSail in Destin. We've been told by many that they are very nice. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't waste you time. Very cramped sites. Very over priced. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very noisy, quiet hour from 10 - 8 but people were up and making a lot of noise at 6 am. Will not stay here again. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great little campground. If you like slightly cooler Winter weather than found in Southern Florida, then this is a great destination park. The tengoInternet wifi is fair and will cost extra: $3/day, $15/week, $30/month. Cable TV has been great. If you stay and pay by the month, electricity is extra at $.09/kilowatt. There is a swimming pool, but I have never seen anyone use it in the month we have been here. A Wal-Mart Supercenter is 2 miles away. The closest Mall is located 12 miles away in Mary Esther. The staff are very friendly and have free donuts and coffee every Wed in the Winter. We would stay here again. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely, well-maintained park with a nice little beach. Owners are friendly and helpful: even the campers here seemed extra-nice! The only drawback, occurring a few days each month, is listening to Air Force weapons being tested at Eglin Air Force Base across the street! For those like me who are light sleepers: this is a little alarming in the middle of the night. LOL!! We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice place along Santa Rosa Sound, and a short drive to the Gulf at Navarre Beach. Quieter and cheaper waterfront park than Destin, but still expensive and busy in the prime seasons. Very nice hosts, super clean bathrooms barely used, cold but pretty little swimming pool, and a small private beach with sunset views. Not much grass to walk a dog, and sites are somewhat close but at least they are concrete pads with tables. Wifi is extra thru Tengo; cable tv is good. Bonus:you can wash your rig here with well water. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites were a little close, but still had plenty of room for 5th wheel and truck, even enough to put our awning out. Staff very nice and helpful. We rode through two other area parks, this was by far the nicest. We were in site 50, it had a great view of the gulf! We will be back! We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campers beware, deposit required is $140.00 on reservation. Electric deposit is $75.00. If you leave without giving a 30 notice you loose your deposit. Management very unfriendly, park is over grown with grass and sites are small with no room for vehicles. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at Navarre Beach campground in the past and wanted to give these folks a try. The staff at both campgrounds need training in how to treat customers. This campground seemed not as cramped as Navarre and a bit cleaner. Next year may find a better spot / campground along the Emerald Coast of Florida. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here in a 40' 5th wheel. We had to park the truck so close to the side of the camper that we couldn't even use the rear door. We had to squeeze the truck in. Note that some sites have you park your truck right next to your camper under where the awning would be. We were in a pull-through that was nice and long. There is a nice grassy area on both sides of the sites and the grass is kept up very well. We also had two dogs with us and their paws were always clean after a walk:) No sand around the sites. The campground is only about a mile from the bridge to the Navarre beaches. We just parked at the public parking area there and the water and sand were gorgeous. There is also a lifeguard at that part of the beach. This was our first time in this campground and would camp here again. It was very clean, roads are paved, our site was level, they have special water spigots for you to wash your rig, pool was nice, beach on the Sound in the back of the campground was nice -- had picnic tables and tiki umbrellas. We did have to pay an extra $5 for each child -- we have two young children. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
