We love Topsail, but you need reservations 11 months in advance it seems. Recently, we booked Emerald Coast RV Park in Panama City FL. Yes, 50 miles east of Destin but still sort of on the panhandle. Looks like its very popular and well received. FHU all day long. Your 36 foot 5vr should fit fine.
Looks like a nice place - however, on their website it states: "guests arriving with travel trailers or 5th wheelers cannot be accommodated and will be turned away."

True?


Can't imagine what it is that you are looking at. Unless it's something new related to COVID. We camped at Topsail in 2019 in a 23-foot travel trailer and there were many travel trailers and fifth wheels throughout the campground.

Or were you referring to the Emerald Coast RV Park??

Thank you all for the suggestions. While it wasn’t our first choice we secured a site at Navarre Beach RV resort, and felt lucky to do so, given that summer is such a popular travel time. Thanks again for your help.

Top Sail, Grayton Beach, and St Andrews are state parks with beach access. All are popular and require advanced reservations.

We stayed there last May, and the folks that ran it were super nice. It was clean, and nothing fancy, our site was a little tight. We hung out of the pier in the park a good bit. It is a short drive over to the beach, and you can use the public beach right over the bridge, or drive down to the National Seashore.

I can second Topsail. Excellent resort, even though it is actually a state park. As far as reservations go, just monitor reserveamerica daily and look for cancellations. They happen all the time. We've been camping in FL state parks for a couple of years now just using cancellations. It's a lot easier than the 11-month in advance system that they have in place. Not easy to get long stays through cancellations, but you can generally get lucky enough to get a stay for less than a week, if you are persistent and patient.

I was told over this past weekend that Florida State Parks are leaving reserveamerica as of May 1, 2021. This info came from a state park manager.

Literally just west of our house on US98. Enjoy your stay!
