Had a short notice trip to Tampa and decided to take the RV instead of staying in a hotel. I knew it would be busy and prepared for some time in dry camp. Ended up on the end of a row right next to the boat launch exit...beautiful spot even if it had no utilities. Evening camp host was very nice and guided me to parking. I was able to get full hook-up a week later in the 'first-come-first-serve' area...

Very nice new campgrounds. The only drawback (reason for a 4) in my opinion is the lack of shade and the height of the sewer drain connection. It's a chore to get the hose drained when breaking camp. The new sites are located on the old Twin Lakes golf course. Some of the cart path has been turned in to a fitness trail. Signs have been added that direct you to the new sites. There are two new tornado shelters...

Outstanding! The only reason I gave it a 4 on amenities is due to the small size of the sites, but keeping everything in perspective, it's a great place.I did notice the water pressure was a bit lower than we're used to. Very clean with just about all you need for a great vacation. I had my own internet (MiFi) but others had to go to the bathhouse/laundry area to connect. A friend advised me about size limit on dogs,...

There's a new link to the website: http://www.benningmwr.com/destin.php. We went out on the 'Starts and Stripes' fishing boat this morning. Capt Al and the first mate (can't recall his name) were great. The waves were 2-4 feet which made it challenging and made for some rough fishing, but it was a good time none-the-less. We'll be setting up our RV there next week and we'll let ya know how the campground is.

I have to respond to slmky's review. I think she has probably seen me with my dog. I have a Rot/Shepard mix that looks like a MWD (Military Working Dog) and walk him several times a day. slmky may have seen me in uniform (I'm active duty) and may have figured I was with Security Forces (SF). The SF folks come through a few times a week, but really need to increase their patrols on the weekends, esp. now that...

Just an update for any folks looking to stop by. There are currently only 10 sites open (out of 50) and they are all 30 amp. The 50 amp sites (9-14 & 26-50) are all occupied. The Eisenhower-era class 'A' that was a fixture is no longer on site. It has been cold here of late, hard freeze for the past week or so. We're looking to come out of that in the next 2-3 days. There are 4 washers...

Mixed review. The marina has it's good and not-so-good employees. No camp hosts, though there appears to be a site (#50) for one. We appreciate the location, but there's little to do in the campgrounds. There is a nature trail, but it's been neglected. Campgrounds are adjacent to the Santa Rosa Sound with plenty of access to the water for kayaks or fishing. It's less than 1-mile to the main gate and just over a mile to the shoppette/gas station...
