Cool Destin, Florida

Just curious if anyone has camped in Destin, Florida. We have camped at Camp Gulf but it is pretty pricey. Wondered about Florida State Parks/Campgrounds.

Any info would be appreciated.

Florida State Parks are booked at least a year out. If you go to the Reserve America web site, you can fish if your dates are flexible. I got into Henderson 2 years ago on sheer LUCK! You can almost forget Top Sail and Grayton. This is Destin's peak period. Any private park, and they are few, at at least $100/day.
I tried booking for July 4 months ago and quit. Going to Jacksonville instead.
Good Luck

We spent Thanksgiving week at Henderson Beach State Park a couple of years ago. Great campground. In town yet we never felt that way.

Only been to Gulf Camp. It is pricey but nice. Frankly, Destin has become a linear Disney World. Much better beach front camping in St. Augustine and other places in Florida.

We have stayed at TopSail (just a few miles east of Destin) and Grayton Beach (a few miles further east). Topsail has more sites (maybe 200) and GB only has 50. You can book 11 months out. Both have great beaches!! We try to avoid the crowds and traffic in Destin whenever possible.
