    Lovely small park with only 36 sites. Not right on the Gulf but the beach is only 2 min. by car or 5 by bike. Clear blue water & white 'squeaky' sand beaches, with restrooms, rinse-off showers, and covered picnic tables close by.

    W/E with dump station. One restroom area with showers in the center of the loop. Enough brush/trees left between sites so you don't see your neighbor. Picnic table, campfire circle, and clothesline on each site. Nice place.

    Just got back from camping at Grayton Beach SP. I guess they've added additional sites since the first post was made. We stayed in the newer section (Site 44). Our site backed up to a lake, but the Gulf was only a few minutes by bicycle down the main park road. Looks like they added the new camping section and added a new check-in station, since the original check-in park office was boarded up on the road to the beach. Site was perfectly flat (as is everything in Florida), gravel pad, picnic table and fire ring provided. Restroom and shower house in the new section was immaculate. They also have a "family restroom" with showers if you have little ones to deal with like us.

    Not alot to do IN the park itself, but the location of the park makes it perfect to take in Destin (12 minutes away), or Panama City Beach (about 25 minutes the other direction). Bring your bikes. Gorgeous paved bike path goes from the head of Highway 30A (near 98) all the way to Panama City Beach.

    The beach on the Gulf was pristine white sand. No trash anywhere, and there were public restrooms, picnic areas, and showers available at the beach area as well. Huge dunes separate the parking area from the beach itself, but there is a fairly new boardwalk there to access the beach.

    We got lucky and found 1 site available for the only 3 days we had planned on camping - everything else was booked solid. Since our family business is only open on weekends, we had to be back in Tennessee by Thursday night.

    We'll definitely go back to Grayton SP when we head down to Florida again.
