Available to active duty military and retirees only. The regular sites are full hookup, and very nicely situated with LOTS of room between sites. We went through the entire campground, and our review is based on the regular sites, not the overflow which is available only in the high demand months. - One the Rhode

Lucked out and got 1 of only 2 pull through sites, #59, for 3 nights at $25 per night. Very nice facility with a friendly community feel and a community rec center built by camping volunteers. Very clean and nice showers and laundry facility! Pot luck dinners every Tuesday night. Noisy during the day due to the Raptor flights, so be prepared for that. Bears! But everyone we spoke to seemed quite casual about their presence, even the camp office personnel who just advised caution. Reports of alligators and copperheads near the waterfront trails. Would return but there is not much to do in the immediate area. Panama City Beach is about 40 minutes away! - Tin Can Twosome

We stayed in site 164 in the Pine loop. The sites in that loop are rather tight though there is some buffer. Backing in took a bit and the back of our 24' trailer was up against the brush at the back of the site. Bigger rigs should stick to Lag loop. Since school was out, the park was nearly full. Lot of people and kids but, no excessive noise. The park is popular with the locals so the beaches were busy but not overcrowded. ReserveAmerica listed the site as 50A but the box was 30A. I doubt anything that could fit in that site would require 50A so that's not an issue really. Bathhouse showed some age but was clean with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The dump station was accessible, but given the difficulty getting in and out of the site, was an on-the-way-out only sort of a thing. - M A Wilson

St. Andrew's State Park, Panama City Beach, Florida. We spent 2 weeks here in June of 2018. Our site was one of the sites that are located on the lagoon, so it had a great view of the lagoon for early morning coffee watching the fishing boats heading out the pass to the Gulf. The campground is a mixture of 30 and 50 amp sites, and we had a 30 amp site. With the high temps, I wish that it had 50 amp for both air conditioners, but with the shade, it was OK.
All site have water, but none have sewer hookups. The dump station is convenient, so not a big problem with a blue boy. The restrooms and bath houses are clean, and in reasonable condition for the age of this campground. Plenty of hot water, which I needed for my back, hips and shoulders.
The beach itself, is top notch. White sands, and emerald waters. Most of the time we were here, there were red or yellow flag conditions, but still had a great time. This is a high demand campground, and they will be only accepting walk ups over the coming winter months, as they plan on doing upgrades to the campground, including all 50 amp sites, and all sites with sewer hookups. I hope that they also trim some of the low hanging branches, as I did scrape in a few areas, and could not get positioned in the site where I really wanted to be, because of the low branches. If in a class A motorhome, be aware that some of the roadways are narrow, and do have low hanging branches, so take your time.
All in all a very good place to spend a few days or a couple of weeks. - Newjade

Location is the best feature of this park. Snuggled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Grand Lagoon on the extreme astern end of Panama City Beach provides a neat sand and sea venue. The downside is all sites are just water and electric hook-ups. Most sites are shaded, or at least partially so. Many of the waterfront sites have a great view north over the Grand Lagoon. In some areas there is enough foliage to provide some privacy between sites. Still, the size and nature of the sites varies tremendously so knowing the layout from previous visits is really helpful. There are very nice heated and air conditioned shower houses (4 in total) and 3 different dump stations scattered around the camping area. A particular problem comes up with understanding the arrangement of the odd numbered sites from 17 through 59. On the campground map and, therefore, on the Reserve America campground map these sites appear placed around the inside of a loop. In fact, the "loop" is a straight section of road and sites such as 29 to 25 and sites 53 to 59 are actually side by side and co-mingled, not at all across from each other as shown on the maps. I booked site 55 for us and site 57 for my daughter's family, believing they were indeed side by side. They were not. Site 25 was immediately next to site 57 and site 55 was a small, cramped site one site further away on the opposite side of 25. The state park has beautiful beach area, all along the south edge and all along the east edge. It's fine very white sand and turquoise waters. The beaches are easily reached by bike (all on interior park roads) or by driving over the large parking areas near the boardwalks over the dunes to the beaches. The beaches are the best part of this park. Be aware, however, that the beaches are steeply sloped from the dunes to the water. - sandean

This is a Park Model community where every site is individually owned. There are very few RV sites mixed throughout the park. The grounds are very well maintained, the staff is friendly, and easy access to the pools and beach. No pets are allowed by renters, only owners. Also, the easiest way around the park is by golf cart, but again only owners. Despite leaving the family pet at home, we will stay here again. - FrankM

Visited this park in 40' motorhome. This park is advertised as "a recreational vehicle condominium resort". Actually it is an RV park that has become a park model park. Only a few, about ten, RV sites still exist and are rented. The park is gorgeous and very well maintained. The staff was friendly & helpful. Park has security patrols and a guard house at gate. The streets are narrow & I could not get my coach into most sites. Most sites would accommodate a coach up to about 32 feet. I got into a corner spot that had extra room to back in. Site was great with mature palm trees, concrete pad, picnic table and swing. Park has boat ramp, boat dock and storage area. Two swimming pools of which one is heated. The other pool overlooks the private beach which one also has access. People in park were very friendly. If this park was more RV oriented I would have rated it a 10. I will stay at park in the future. - rheavn

Location is what I paid $130 (including tax) per night. Located only a few blocks from the beach access. Felt safe walking back after nightfall. Ladies in the office were helpful. Could be an excellent place if maintenance would kick it up a bit. Pool: Sand on bottom needed to be vacuumed. Lights burned out at night. Could not even see if a person was in trouble on the bottom, (likely a pool safety violation) Sites: Nice brick streets and level cement sites. Small trees & shrubs, weeds on back & side of site. Five minutes per site with a weed- eater would take care of the mess. Some of these may be from last year's hurricane, but still... Power pedestals: Missing covers at our site & many more. Blowing rain gets in the plugs, not good for the campground equipment nor your RV connection. The plastic covers should have been replaced by now. Entrance: Sign says "V Resort", the R is missing. Maintenance man should get a little plywood and cut out an R until a metal R can be replaced. On the other side of the entrance part of the cinder block wall is knocked down as if someone ran into it. Maintenance could take 10 minutes to at least stack the blocks, but they just lay where they fell. Looks really tacky for your first impression. Big surprise, no picnic table at the sites. Did not expect a grill, fire ring like you get at state parks, but at least a picnic table. Ridiculous for a very expensive so called "resort" to not have a table at each site. - outriggertexas

This was our second visit. Location, location, location to the beach. It's a short two- block walk before your feet hit the beautiful sand of Panama City Beach. If you want the excitement of PCB, this is not the place. It's at the quiet end of Thomas Drive, which was perfect for us. The bathrooms are very clean as is the laundry. The pool is very nice. Office staff and hosts are wonderful. They spend a good deal of time keeping the grounds clean and neat. When we first arrived, we were a bit disappointed in the grounds as three years ago when we were there, there was grass between sites and this time, there was pine straw and sand. It is my understanding that there has been a change of ownership and there was a problem with sprinklers, but soon the grass is supposed to be replaced. Roads are easy to navigate and beautiful as there are brick pavers. Our site was concrete and very level. We really love the park and will definitely stay again even if they don't replace the grass. Thanks to the staff for being so helpful. - Living the Life

Steps away from the ocean. Well taken care of RV Park. Small park with limited amount of spaces. They do not accept after hours Check-in so call before 4pm to secure your spot. Overall I am extremely happy with this location and amenities! - TravelingChez

Water/50A/sewer all good. Concrete pad for RV and patio. Pretty tight, but an employee will spot you in, so your spouse won't get yelled at. Pretty quiet - right next to the marina, and pretty much the only noise was the forklift for the dry-storage boats. Park your TOAD 50 yards away in parking lot. Playground for the kids (Astro-Turf), beach with shallow swimming area. Paddle-boats and stand-up paddle-boards were only $15/day. Picnic shelters/tables, each with a grill - no reservations needed. Pretty easy in and out - about half a mile south of US98. - jtids

We stayed at the off base facility. It isn't the greatest RV park but it meet our needs, close to the beach, family, and cost. Host were very friendly and assisted us when needed. The laundry room is convenient and inexpensive. - ranic59

The sites are perfectly level. We stayed on a premium site. The sites are large and beautifully landscaped. Best of all are the support staff. Maintenance people are awesome. Our AC went out on day one and the staff tried their best to help. - DocBowman

Stayed here in the spring for 7 days. The place is beautiful, EVERY SINGLE person is very friendly, including the staff. I have no negatives about this place. It's well kept, issues are addressed by staff. We liked it so much we're staying here for a month next year! - DASigrom 2018- 01_

We evacuated Jacksonville FL due to the hurricane Dorian and were told to go to Panama City and we should be safe. Found this campsite on the way there and booked for 3 nights. Sites are paved but some have branches lifting up the pavement and there is no wat to level your rig. We had to ask to get different site. Lots of permanent residents, busy street. Very convenient location for the beach goers, its just across the street and its FREE. Beautiful beach with white sand, crystal clear water and super sunsets. - MarkAndAnia

On a good note, it is very close to the beach, about 750 ft. across a very busy road. You are close to several resort hotels and the noise from them goes on all night. There is a large outdoor video screen on one of the hotels that lights up the campground like day time. Wifi was terrible, if you can connect at all, it soon drops. Very slow...difficult to even do email. As you would expect, lots of sand. The sites are paved with a concrete patio and picnic table. Lots of permanent residents around the perimeter. We were on site 34 which backs up to some kind of waste water treatment thing. The whole time we were there it smelled like sewer. Garbage pickup regularly at the site. Also, LOTS of road noise. I am usually not bothered by that, but this was like being on strip at Vegas. - BuckeyeTravels

Lesson here: Don't go to Fl during the winter or spring break. Charges are so unreasonable to be ridiculous. Campground was difficult to find in large part to my GPS. Night staff was very helpful in finding when I called and gave a vague description of where we were lost. Asked for pull thru, got back in. Nearly an impossible spot to back into with a 40-ft even with dolly and tow detached but staff was very helpful in getting us in. We immediately found Wi-fi wasn't working. Notified management. They were there next morning and were to call cable company or run a REALLY long wire to our site in the very back of the grounds. Next day it had not been fixed and they had a pull-thru become available. Moved with no problem only to find cable box had been "gutted". Repair was made by late that afternoon. Some of the camp was with permanent trailers rented out and most of the others appeared to be seasonal. Directly across from us was the tent area. Concerned at first, given Spring Break, but found they were quiet and appropriate. Across the street was a very loud lounge but not after about 11-12 pm. Our site (both of them) were paved with no electric or other problems. Grounds are not what you would expect for this price with the permanent sites and many of the mobiles were unkempt. We were told the manager was "let go" our second day. The only good thing I can say was that the staff was helpful before and after the "let-go" manager. 50 amp was fine as was water and sewer connections. - docsheila

There are lots of long term sites that have belongings strewn about outside. We were going to stay a month but changed locations after 3 days. The spaces are a bit tight and quite close to each other. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is ideal for proximity to beaches and restaurants. - BubbaHut

OK for an overnight stop. $65 full hookup. Shower/restroom requires a $5 key deposit, as best we could tell (guys had to shower at the pool & our utility shower so we could pull out on time) it was one at a time. Really short sites, big rigs would be hard pressed. - Massey

This park is not really a camping park. It is a place to park your RV while you are in Panama City beach. They had full hookups but all of the 30amp poles were reversed polarity which the park was unwilling to fix or even acknowledge. They sent someone to look at it but he was a night security guard. They pack the spots as close as you could possibly get to each other, which is fine if you just need a place to park. Not much grass, lots of noise as it’s right on the road, and some pine trees. They did have a nice looking pool. The people were nice. We may stay there again, if we need a place to park while in town. But if we want a camping experience we will go elsewhere. - Diesel_tke

We had a nice week stay here at the end of JULY in FL, it was pleasant, restrooms were a/c and clean mostly - its mostly a issue with other people just not cleaning up after themselves. close to beach but we chose to go to a different public beach about 5 miles down the beach/pier beach was crowded. had only 1 issue and not parks problem really but take fire ant protector - fl is covered in fire ants, only 1 person out of 7 of us staying in our camper was bitten. we were in popup camper and just had bought but we had a very pleasant stay here, it was shady and campers were so close that you couldn't enjoy your own space. it was really nice and close to everything you needed to be close to. - tamaleigh

The campground has tall pine trees which leaked out pine sap on my new 2017 Ford F250. The bathrooms were a little dirty. The owner was very stern about not working with us on another site. Could not rent a 50 amp site instead of a 30 amp even though I had a adapter. Customer service was very poor. Owner is not very accommodating considering being out of town. Fought getting sand in the camper the whole time.
Would not reccomend Racoon River to any of my friends. - dplangley55
