Extremely helpful staff, friendly RVers, Sites are close. We reserved a premium site but on check in were told we couldn't park our truck on the site. Wish we were told that when we made reservation as it was not convenient. Traffic on main road makes exiting park difficult. You can't make a left turn if you want to go west, but have to make a U-turn. Park is clean and neat.
We arrived on May 22, 2017 for a 3 day stay at Emerald Beach RV park.
The people at check in were very nice and professional. When I told them that I had just received an emergency phone call from home, and my 92 year old Mother was admitted to the Hospital in Hospice and I had to return home. They told me that they would not charge me for my 3 day reservation if I had to leave the following morning.
The park was beautiful, very clean, friendly campers. We had a beach parking spot. Very nice, even our puppy liked it. We did have to leave the next day and traveled all the way home in bad weather, so I could be with my Mom the next day. She passed away that night.
Many thanks to the people at Emerald Beach for making our very short stay very nice. We will be back.
Great location and nice level spots. Our 2 miniature schnauzers enjoyed the dog park and the grounds were well kept. Didn't use laundry or pool during our stay. Restrooms and showers were clean.
Would definitely stay again.
This was our first visit and we loved it! The park is incredibly well maintained! Great concrete pads in every spot with gravel vehicle parking. Beautiful location on the water with a spotless beach. Restrooms and shower facilities are well maintained and clean. The staff were great, and our schnauzers loved the dog park! We will definitely stay here again if in the area. Thanks for a great week!
We wanted to park somewhere in the Florida panhandle for a month so we hoped to find a park we would be comfortable with. Emerald Beach turned out to be almost perfect for us. The park is located on the water about 1 mile east of the bridge to Navarre Beach. They have asphalt driveways and concrete pads all in good condition. We had a pull thru site with a small concrete patio and picnic table. The cable service is the best we have encountered anywhere, excellent quality and extensive channel selection. The WiFi service was consistently good. The bathrooms are in good condition and are kept very clean. All of the staff are super friendly and helpful. They have regular events and since we were there during Thanksgiving they had a pot luck dinner that was super nice. They have separate water sources for washing vehicles. They will even loan you a long water hose to reach to your site. There is a pool but we did not use it due to the weather. We paid $19.35 per night with a monthly rate. We would absolutely return.
This was our third visit. We love it here. The pull thru sites are a little close together, but manageable. Staff is always friendly and helpful. A perk most parks do not have--they have well water available and allow you to wash your rig! The campground is always quiet and the people friendly. Everyone came to help when one slide would not operate. They loaned me tools and helped me get it out manually. In my opinion site #65 is the best in the park, while sites #37 thru #50 are the best pull thru sites.
Best place we’ve stayed in Florida. We just happened upon this one day 8 years ago...what good luck. Love it here each time we stay for a few weeks and we always want to extend. Some times we even stay for a month I wish it could be more. This year we stayed for a month and still extended... almost don’t want to go back home. Large pull thru concrete slabs and a gravel car park too. Campground is always kept clean and bathrooms too. Office personnel are so polite and courteous we’ve become friends.
The water view of the water is awesome and we have our own little beach and fishing pier great spot for viewing the gorgeous sunsets at the end of a relaxing day and visit with your fellow campers. Location is great just 20 miles either way to Pensacola or Destin for an easy day trip. The Navarre beach has the loveliest white sandy beaches with clear pristine water. We just love it.
Great RV park. Long pull-thru sites at angle. Easy hook-ups. Good internet and lots of cable tv channels. Nice beach, pier and pool. Will allow you to wash your RV for no additional charge. Friendly staff that also provide some nice activities: ice cream socials, donuts & coffee and we were there for the seafood festival - yum??. Easy drives to Destin, Pensacola, Ft Walton and Panama City. One of our favorite campgrounds.
This was our second year at the resort. We love it. We have already made reservations for the 3rd year in a row during the month of March 2017. Love the place, very friendly and helpful staff and reasonably priced.
This was our first visit here. The staff was always accommodating and friendly. They were very professional and genuine. The grounds were clean and well kept. As in most parks the wifi was only good for checking emails otherwise slow and dropped off a lot.
We enjoyed our stay in January so much that we decided to come again in February. Our experience was again outstanding! We had a taco night event one night and s'mores the next. Everyone had a great time and the live music at both of those events was really something!
We are snowbirds who stayed here for a month in January. The large pull thru sites were sufficient for our truck and trailer. There was a small picnic table at each site. Due to the season we weren't able to use the outdoor pool or the beach. We would have enjoyed a hot tub to relax in. Lovely sunsets from the fishing pier. Many activities going on for snowbirds. Game nights, exercise, special events, potlucks, etc. We have a dog and the exercise areas were not very good. Dog picked up pickers in his paws from the lawn, and there was no place to let the dog off leash. We were told that a dog walk area is being planned for this year. We were disappointed when the current activities director couple was dismissed- we thought they were doing a wonderful job and really stimulated participation in the events. Not sure if we'll return but would recommend Emerald Beach if you're in the area. Not easy to get the long term rentals without reserving in advance but they always seemed to have space available for quick trips.
We enjoyed our stay immensely! The park was impeccably maintained, the amenities were top-notch, and the staff members made us feel welcome. All of the fellow campers we met were happy. We enjoyed the pier, the beach, kayaking, playing croquet, and playing music in the clubhouse. (Note - we brought our own kayak, croquet set, and music gear.) We will definitely be back soon!
Wonderful location between Destin and Pensacola Beach.
They say that it all comes back to management and this is true
for this place. All staff friendly and accommodating.
We had a pull thru that would allow us to have our tow cart behind us.
Plus an adequate space for our car. Lots of guests have dogs, but everyone respectful of cleaning up after their pets.
Great facility, great staff! Pet friendly, two walking areas. Back-in site #64 offered a view of the sound. Only complaint was that the sitting/table area was near the back of our 5th wheel rig, opposite end from our awning. Next time, we'll get a pull thru. The park and the beach area were very clean. We'll definitely stay here again!
We are already planning our next trip here. The location can't be beat with it's own beach and fishing pier right on the sound. Amenities and grounds are clean an well kept. Staff is friendly and helpful.
We came in from Orlando for a nine day stay. Our first impression of the facility came when I went into the office to check in. Everyone there was extremely, and genuinely, friendly and helpful. Our site was very nice and there was more than one WiFi address to connect to so the internet was never slow for us. There is a small private beach that was very nice and a private covered fishing pier, where we caught some catfish. Saturday they held a seafood festival with live music and the whole park had great food, football on the big screen, and music on the patio. Restrooms were clean and modern and a please to shower in. Even the maintenance people driving around cleaning up made it a point to say hello and ask if there was anything we needed. Excellent customer service, Clean and beautiful park, and we will be back!
First time we have visited Navarre area. Loved the park. We were able to secure a great site - No. 50 and loved the easy access and views of the sound. Only issue we had was the "musical" campsites. Apparently the parks scheduling software needs some updating as at least 6 campers' sites had to be juggled to accommodate new arrivals. I would definitely return to this park though. Loved the area, beaches, and convenience to shopping, etc.
Laundry room needs more machines. Otherwise, very nice. Easy pull through with lots of room and parking for tow vehicle. Like the fact there are two sewer dump spots on the site. Beach is on the sound so nice mild ocean. Refreshing pool
Our family all met up here for the Fourth of July weekend. It was amazing. The park is quiet and on the water. The celebration with the shrimp boil was so good. We were able to watch the fireworks from across the bay and it was a great night. The staff...wow not sure how much praise I can heap on them...We had an issue with our RV and they worked very hard to assist us. Even after we left and needed more information, they remembered us and helped even further. Hard to find a better place to stay.
First time to Florida and this RV resort was perfect. We have a Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler it was easy to pull in with no problem. We where right off the bay. Our daughter loved the pool. Everything was spectacular and the staff was awesome. The laundry room was so clean. We left very satisfied with Emerald Beach resort.We will be back.
