First time RV’r. Looking to take a trip this summer to the beach. We love the gulf coast, Destin area. Does anyone have any recommendations. Thoughts and ideas are very much appreciated. Thanks

I'll give a big secret away -- Topsail Hill Preserve State Park just outside Destin on the east side. Full hookups, palm trees, and a tram to take you the just under a mile to the beach. And, best part, it's the same beach as Destin, which you can see filled with people. Topsail will have the campers there, but MUCH LESS CROWDED! It's one of those special camping places, to us anyways. And, of course, you are near Destin and all that stuff.

We liked Topsail Hill. Be sure to hit the Donut Hole for breakfast and take a ride down Route 30A.

We also liked HoHum

We stayed at Camp Gulf. The beach front spots were expensive, stupidly tight, and didn't have sewer but it was great having the beach behind the camper.

Another vote for Topsail. Another favorite is Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores if you are considering other areas.

We have stayed at Henderson Beach State Park a couple of times and enjoyed it.

It will already be partially or fully booked up for the summer by now as it is popular. You may be able to find an opening. Florida state parks reservations open 11 months ahead of your planned arrival day.

This summer will be hard to find a campsite if you're just planning now. Top Sail, Henderson Beach, Grayton Beach and the others along the coast are most likely booked by now.
Don't mean to be a harbinger of bad news, but have been looking myself and found nothing that fits my schedule. Good luck!
