Check rates, ours was the prime A11 site overlooking the bay. Listed at $42, but we paid $33. Just large enough for our 35' Class A. Sand and gravel lots. Watched dolphins and pelicans from our window everyday. A fishing camp with old Florida style. Located at the dock to St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge and less than thirty miles to St. George, St. Joseph beaches and Apalachicola sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great camping if you want casual, less developed area. It is not for everyone as it is not cement and landscaped but it is a great natural setting. I loved being so near the water. Short drive to nicer beachs for the sun lovers but for relaxing and fishing this is a great spot. Heading back for a week end of September! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground for 5 months. At first the quaintness appealed to us, and the fishing was good. However, this campground is poorly managed. The grounds are not cleaned after storms, and gray water is allowed to disperse on the ground from longer term campers. They will dump your sewer with a 'honey wagon' once a week before the honey wagon broke down. The managers made no attempt to begin repairs for several days. My husband had to help them work on it. The water is treated with chlorine and has a bad taste. They say they have internet but it's not in the whole park, just a few front sites. They had an argument with the cable TV company and we had no cable for several weeks. We finally installed our own satellite. The bathrooms were kept very cold for showers in the winter, no heat for much of the time. The managers have a total disregard for their clients except when it is time to take in money. They take reservations for sites but when you get here they have given it to someone else. There is no one on-site to help with parking or problems. The sites are not level. Also: the complaints from previous reviewers are very true. This is glass on the beach. The actual Indian Pass has a very strong current and is only for fishing. This campground is very windy and much colder than we expected for the winter. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

They take "reservations" but do not reserve spots. Two families with 5 kids traveled 4 hours to camp together and were assured 3 weeks before when making the reservation, that getting spots together would not be a problem. That did not happen! Oyster shell beaches and shark infested waters. No bike trails. However, the staff were nice and polite. The locals are great. If you like scalloping, this is the place to be in July and August. The Raw Bar is a must stop. The steamed shrimp, stuffed shrimp, and baked oysters were fabulous! Presnell's Bayside Marina is closer to town with most sites on the water. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location. Old fish camp with haphazard site arrangement. If you have a big rig, be very careful to walk to your site first and check for potential dangers. We got a good site for our 40' MH, but the 40' that pulled in next to us at night got stuck in deep sand and we spent all night helping them dig out the rig so the commercial tow truck could pull them out (hours of digging in sweltering heat and bugs with every breath.) Beach right at campground is beautiful sight, but loaded with broken glass - do not even think of swimming there or walking without solid shoes - for some reason the bottles tossed overboard by the boats all come to this area. Nice area to walk around, ladies who run office are lots of fun, pool is heated and shaded and generally clean. Bathrooms fall just at OK. Nice place to rest under the trees and away from everything. Gorgeous state beaches for swimming a short drive away. Long ride back to stores. I wouldn't risk it with kids due to dangers and lack of kid things to do. Think redneck fishing camp that lets in RVs. You need good driving skills to stay here. Arrive early in day as you get to pick your spot - not many for bigger size rigs. You might be next to a tent - we met lovely people tenting next to us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
