Had to find a park quickly for a medical call. Entry road and sandy park roads are rutted. Sites on grass. Site 19 blocks site 18 and provides 15 amp only. Trees make maneuvers challenging. Watch for fire anthills. Can't comment on diving since we were not there for that. - snabo

This is the first time I would give a campground a 3 out of 5 and go back. We really enjoyed the amenities the park offered. The spring is great and we got some bottom time (SCUBA) in every day. The campground needs some love. The grass needed to be cut and the dump station was out of order. If you stay here please note that the White Camping (water and electric only) and Red Camping are close to the spring and swimming. The Blue Camping is too far out back and felt too secluded. We were given a Blue site and we asked to be moved to the front since it felt like we were too far away. - trikeflyer

I'm from Panama, and my family was down from Atlanta. We picked this spot to meet up with each other for a weekend. To be clear, this was a fun weekend, but make no mistake, this place caters to divers, not campers. Gorgeous springs, diving rentals, a swimming hole, lots of activity going on all the time. They also have cabins and houses to rent out. The sites are not clearly marked, but are easy enough to get in and out of. Kids had a blast in the water. No lifeguards though, so be diligent. Overall, we do plan to go back because of the diving/swimming portion where we can camp, too. But if swimming/diving aren't priorities for you... you may want to look to other places as the campsite is not the priority for this area. - JJGibbs

Reserved the 2nd last spot in the park, was pretty level, no sewer at the site, but they had a dump station on the way out, mostly quiet, small park 80% full timers, cable was fine, wifi was hit and miss, for the Passport America price was okay for 1 night. - DBSnowbirds

Very small park with lots of permanent people living here. Just a couple sites available for passers-through RVers. The two sites share a power post; so if there were two here simultaneously, one would get a 50amp connection and the other would have to use the 30amp connection. There is free WiFi here and cable TV along with a bathhouse & showers. Our site was a pull-through right on the water. Needed to use levelers under the front tires to prevent them from hanging in the air. There is a dump station; but no sewer at the sites. - Wandering With Us

Little old park needs renewal. A lot of permanent residents with dogs and children. Very small place RV. I do not recommend this place for people who like silence. Our place was without picnic table and very close to buildings. - Obcy

The park is a bit on the worn side, but the owner is very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is kind of shabby but the folks there seemed OK. The park itself has a LOT of perms and long-terms so that's not very pretty. But the lakeside area is just beautiful, and the park is very quiet at night. We camped in a pull-thru right next to the street and we never heard a sound all night. Since we were right by the road, our way out was to continue on the road we were parked next to. We hit some hanging tree branches on our way and our satellite radio antenna has been cutting out ever since. They really need to trim those trees. I kept to the middle of the road and they got us anyway. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to spend a night or two, Juniper Lake might just be the ticket. - dhaney1944

Great little overnight spot if you are in the area. They have a few big rig friendly sites and you do. To have to unhook your car. Owner has you call when you get off the freeway and she gives directions and mets you outside the campground. Then takes you to your spot and ensures you get level. Right on lake and you can sit on deck and enjoy the water. - Buspuppies

Clean level gravel sites. Well spaced on gentle slope to lake. 30/50 amp service. Very quiet and private. The proprietor is very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. - allure 470

This is one of the best RV parks we have stayed at!! The owners were very sweet, they treated us pretty much like family. They invited us into their home and we talked for hours. They would take my 2 year old daughter riding on their golf carts (of course I rode also).
The park was very clean, and quiet!! Laundry room was clean. My husband loved the lake/fishing!! Will definitely be back if we are near Geneva, Alabama again!!
They looked after me and my daughter while my husband worked during the day. When it would start storming they would check to make sure we were okay and asked if we needed anything!! Wifi worked great.
The owners kept the park very clean, he was always outside doing yard work!!! She kept the flower beds really pretty, hope we can visit with them soon!!! - Shelby Shoemake

This place was not clean and very noisy. We were looking for a relaxing vacation and this place was anything but. Owners were rude and unfriendly. - Ron and Amy

The owners have done an excellent job of cleaning up after the previous owners. Both are the kindest, most helpful and gracious owners we have encountered. Everyone is very friendly. The grounds are landscaped nicely and well kept. There are a number of long timers who are also helpful. They have added a club house for get together. Two docks available for fishing. Landing is available with a recommended $2 launching fee. The lake only allows electric motors - no gasoline. The campgrounds are literally out in the country closer to Geneva, AL than Defuniak Springs, FL. - MOexpat

We stayed 1 night at this campground, we followed the signs from the interstate. We had just went through a hard rain and the brake lights stopped working. Had that not happened we would not have stayed at this place. Lights had to be fixed so we stayed. No owner/manger was around. We left payment with another camper. The campground was very much in need of mowing. It worked for what we needed, but would only be a choice if we had vehicle problems. - JLitton

We stayed here one night. Sites seemed fairly level, nothing too fancy, a little on the run down side. Owner showed us to our spot, and then left us alone. There seemed to be a lot of long termers there, but it was clean. An okay place for overnight. - Sid

OK for an overnight. It's just a place to park, but it felt safe. No cable and cash only. A lot of road noise near the office. - Libby

Stayed May 4, 2018 - this park is being rehabed by a family. Big rig pull thru - I have a 42' DP 63' with toad. Trees need to be trimmed. I had to ask neighbor to move their pickup to avoid hitting low branches. Had they not been there I would have had to unhook toad to get out. Nice little park not far of I-10 close to Walmart and restaurants. A Little over priced. - Fred Gagne

This small family-owned park is right next to the state highway, which can be noisy at times. This isn't unusual in our experience, and it didn't bother us too much. The owners live on-site and were very nice and easy to deal with. We only stayed a few days so we could join friends for Thanksgiving, and this was nearby and suited the purpose. The bathrooms were very clean, there were two complete bathrooms that were unisex. The Gulf is only about 16-20 miles away, and it looks like there's lots to explore in the area. We had a flat tire on our truck the last day which squashed our exploration plans, but if we come back to the area we'll plan on trying to book further ahead so we can get into the state parks on the water. No real negatives about this place in November, it suited our needs and was available fairly last-minute. I booked online and had my choice of sites at the time. There was enough room between us and our neighbors to play badminton - that's pretty spacious. - Denise and Glenn

CONS: - 1 out of 4 sides of the property faces a very busy highway (that is also under construction). You can hear the highway day and night. You can see the highway from anywhere in the campground. That was a major disappointment for us and took away from the 'camping' experience we were looking for. This campground is located RIGHT OFF THE SIDE OF A HIGHWAY and you should know this before making your reservation. - The campsites are VERY close together with zero buffer zone between sites. There are no trees/space between sites. This means no privacy. This means you see and hear everything everyone else is doing and saying your whole visit. Other campgrounds I have stayed at space the sites out more generously and have trees etc between sites to provide privacy. - No trees between sites means nowhere to hang a temporary clothesline to dry your gear, swim towels etc. - Nearly every camper had a dog (most had more than 1) so be forewarned that there are MANY dogs here (and they bark sometimes as dogs will do). This point is a pro for some and a con for others so I thought I'd point it out. - There were many kids. The sound and sight of children playing was everywhere (and continued past dark our first night). This point is a pro for some and a con for others so I thought I'd point it out. - ALL SITES are near the gravel road that goes through the campground. The sites are not set back from the road. So if you make the mistake that we made, and camp here using a tent, you will hear/see vehicles driving only a few feet from your tent throughout your stay. This place is more 'RV park' than campground. I would NOT recommend Sapphire Island for anyone seeking a peaceful, scenic, 'back-to-nature' camping experience. We regretted our choice. We visited 2 nearby state parks (Falling Waters & Florida Caverns) during our stay and both offer Ah-mazing camping experiences... we really regretted not having made our reservations at the state parks instead.
+ Cleanest bathrooms that I've ever seen at a campground. + The hosts allowed us to change our site upon arrival. + We were given complimentary fire wood first night. + Nice swing set for kids. + Fenced-in dog area. + Nice volley ball area (we didn't use it but looks like a nice set up). + 4 Lawn chairs provided in the field for sunbathing and stargazing. + The campground is clean and well maintained. + Nice fire pit at each site. + 3 out of 4 sides of the property are woodsy-looking. - AndreaDM

This is a beautiful park, perfect for big rigs. The rate is dependent on the site, so check the website out (which is a great site). Its surrounded by lake front or lake views. The sites are concrete & hard-scaped. They have done a beautiful job on site spacing. There is a great store in the campground office. We kayaked the King Lake side. There are grocery stores,etc. close by. We have a 41 ft motor coach that we maneuvered great inside the park & access roads were good. I'm not sure why the sites did not have a picnic tables. We will definitely stay here again. - LMal

Stayed here after purchasing new toy hauler from Dixie RV. Planned on staying only a day or two and ended up staying a week. Quiet location on lake with great breezes and views. Very friendly staff and campers. Lots to do at the resort. There isn't much of a town nearby, but there are stores within several miles, such as Lowe's, Winn Dixie, WalMart, etc. Cell service is reasonable on ATT, and Wifi is good during the day and slows down in the evening. I look forward to staying here again. - rpotterflca

Third visit to Twin Lakes Camp Resort. Nothing has changed in any of the visits. This is a really nice campground with level pads, all utilities are A+. The showers/toilets are individual and decorated better than my house! A unique feature for Twin Lakes is that each site can be used for pull-in or back in with utilities appropriately located for both! Plenty of lake to fish, canoe or float. Lots of yard games for the kids and adults. A great little lodge has seating, AC, pool table and books. The camp store is well appointed. Make sure and allow time to browse the local inventory. Dogs are welcome on a leash. Just beware there is more "No Pet" grass area than that available for dogs. Each site has a fire ring and the camp provides firewood. Maybe they could remind those that insist on a fire, not to try and burn wet wood! It only smokes and the stink was terrible. We didn't get any outside time in the evening because of this. - DHK

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. - KristyWat690

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. - Roadtrip500
Apr 2018 - $41.00
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. - Hogladyrider

We understand these are new owners and need time to make improvements. We had a reservation but our assigned site was already occupied. With approval of the office, we parked in the only other unoccupied site that was long enough. Park roads are very rutted and narrow. Mostly long term residences and lots of construction vehicles on the property.
No grass or cable here. Also no picnic table or fire ring but then again no space to put them in.
This is an overnight and we’ll make due. - Boomerific

This is the worst park I have ever stayed in. Sites are not level. I understand about the recent storm but the management lets heavy equipment (track hoes, large bucket trucks) in the park. They start loading and unloading at 5 am. You won't get any sleep. Talked with the staff and they don't care. One morning they were trying to load a track hoe less than a foot from my pickup. Called owner and they still didn't care. Normal day for contractors is starting around 4am. Trucks being idle for an hour that early in the morning. The park does not enforce the quiet time hours. Do not recommend this park to anyone. - Ltyndall
