We stayed there the first week of November for 5 nights. Was very clean, well kept. We did not find noise a problem and traffic is what it is in every beach area during high seasons. All the amenities have been covered. You will enjoy.
Travel safe

The beaches in Destin are picture book and the water is clear. The Air Force Armaments museum in Ft. Walton Beach is something to see. I lived in Niceville across the bay so we didn't experience the campgrounds in the area. Go and enjoy the area.

Check out Destin Army Recreation area. They have a nice, but tight, campground. Rates are about $21 a night compared to about $100 a night where you are staying.

I read the same report and have friends in the area. It is true. The report implied that as the weather warms and the bacteria increase the beaches will likely be closed. However, the areas north and south of Myrtle do not have the same problems. You might just want to relocate within the area. Nothing is worth the health risk.

I love the park, my favorite spots are on the end by the pool and fronting the bay, I believe spots 28 and 29.The pool at the Ramada and all the local access is great. I highly recommend renting a pontoon boat for the family and going to crab island, there are 100's of boats, clear water about waste deep, my kids and grandkids love it

Crousr01 do you remember how much it was to rent a pontoon for the day.

Smile Destin Fl

Check out Camp Gulf RV park in Destin Fl. We just booked for August, You actually park your RV on the beach, So cool can't wait to go. Reviews were excellent a little pricey, but your on the beach and sand at your door.

The Army recreation area has boats to rent as well.

Okay I will check that out defiantly probably little cheaper there.
We looked at camp gulf first but we couldn't get a site for July and we wanted to stay right on the beach like that then we read with dogs you can't and we have three Dachshunds that go everywhere with us lol.
