Residents of neighboring north Okaloosa County, we escape to the 30A Bay Hideaway to rest, relax, and replenish. Close to the activities on 30A and the Gulf of Mexico (7 minutes) but secluded enough to feel like you have your own private piece of paradise with amazing sunsets to boot. The bay is full of life: watch mullet jump, catch crabs, watch for dolphins and sting rays. If you enjoy fishing, try night fishing on the dock, too. Bay charters come to our dock on their excursions! If you bring a boat, Cessna Landing is just under 2 miles away with a very nice boat launch. Tie your boat to our dock for the duration of your visit. Boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, swimming, sunset watching, bicycling and campfires are a few things we enjoy while at the 30A Bay Hideaway. Sunset viewing deck, bay beach/dock, fire pit and an outdoor shower are included in the listing. Owners are not onsite during rental periods. While we are living our daily lives, we hate knowing this place goes unused because it is so special. Come and enjoy this special place during the times we cannot. Time will slow down and you will feel like you’re in another world!

Great experience
Great experience. This place is beautiful and has everything you need. Grill, fire pit, outside shower (with hot water!).. there’s even kayaks, paddle boards, crab traps, etc. I love the little wood shed beside the hookups. There you can find firewood and charcoal.. They ask for a small amount of cash be placed in the lockbox in exchange and the money goes to their kids who help collect the firewood. I was only supposed to stay 2 nights but due to some unexpected events I stayed longer. Nathan and Crystal helped me extend my reservation when I was having trouble on the app. I didn’t leave this place for days and honestly there was no need to. My only advice is to make sure you bring a lighter for the grill or fire pit and bug spray if you plan to sit by the water in the afternoon. Also, the app says they have a propane grill available but during my stay, it was locked. I used the charcoal grill, which I prefer.

Wow! My favorite Hip Camp to date. Looks amazing on line but even better in person. Nathan and Crystal were great with communication (none really needed while there) and the info they give you is spot on. While we did venture out quite a bit we also spent a lot of time just relaxing and watching the sunsets from the property. Couple days we didn’t even leave the property :) Six stars across the board! Outdoor shower was also great!! Thanks Guys Jason & Kellie

Phenomenal view and privacy!
What a great spot! We loved having our trailer backed up so we could look out onto the bay while we ate our meals. All the birds were fun to watch and a pelican decided to sit next to my wife on the dock and hang out with her for a spell. The hot water outdoor shower was perfect even in December. We enjoyed helping fund the kids college tuition with each fire. My only word of warning is we had a little trouble getting our rig turned around and even that comes with the caveat that we’re learning how to back up and maneuver it (28 foot travel trailer).

Can’t ask for better!
One of our absolute favorite places to camp - full hookups with your own private beach on the bay a short drive from all the 30A attractions. We split time between the beach and fishing for Redfish on the bay, and had some beautiful early-fall weather. Wouldn’t change a single thing about this spot!

I cannot say enough about this place. This is our second year here and we come to hook up with a bunch of friends that rent a house off of 30A complete with a pool. For us, this was a place that was “10” times better than their house in spite of the fact it was within walking distance f the beach. I kayaked everyday on the bay and discovered all kinds of delicious little memories, jumping fish, crabs running sideways, beautiful scenes. Im a terrible writer but I have to tell you, I haven’t found anywhere as wonderful as this place. If you are a birdwatcher -osprey, kingfisher, clapper rail, great egret, double crested cormorants, brown pelicans(lots of them when the time is right and the do their u shape clapping the surface of the water to confuse the fish so the can scoop them up).

A beautiful piece of the bay
We really enjoyed Nathan and Crystal’s property on the bay. Very private and peaceful with a huge grassy yard that our little dog had fun playing with her ball. The measure of how nice a place is for us is, would we return? Oh yes we would! Nathan and Crystal gave us a very informative pdf before coming about the area and the protocol for camping at their place.

Peaceful Camping on the bay
We had a wonderful visit on this beautiful piece of land overlooking the bay. So private and peaceful compared to the busyness in all of the surrounding beaches. I highly recommend this spot for anyone looking for a peaceful beach vacation.

Private Oasis
Our family has been camping for over 10 years across several states, from our home in Alabama to places like Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia, and this spot will forever be one of my favorites. It’s a private oasis that I didn’t want to leave. There is beauty and nature all around, and I could sit for hours on the pier just taking it all in. The owners are super friendly and helpful, and the extras like access to their deck and kayaks make the stay much more enjoyable. I hope to be back!

Gorgeous sunrise/sunset paddles
Our favorite HipCamp site yet, and there have been some good ones. If you love paddle boarding, this is the place for you. Gorgeous sunsets, private setting, full hooks ups (water, electricity, and sewer). We usually like white sand gulf beaches but I would choose this location every time, because we loved our sunrise and sunset paddles in the bay—lots of birds, fish, crabs and stingrays. Extra fridge was nice for cold drinks, and did our yoga on the shaded deck. The outdoor shower was fantastic too! Our kids our grown, but would be great spot for children too.

Amazing water views-loved the birds
We loved the views, fishing from the dock, kayaking, bird watching, and so much more! The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful!! The porch with the small fridge, fir pit, and outdoor shower were all nice ‘extras’! So convenient for a trip over to the gorgeous beaches too. Thanks again for your attention to detail & for another amazing stay!

Great!!
We had the best time! My 10 year old daughter had the best time on the dock watching all the blue crabs, hermit crabs, and conchs. If you take one of the provided kayaks into the water you will also no doubt see many sting rays swimming under you… such a cool experience. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

Private and beautiful
This is a beautiful little spot, extremely private and well maintained. The dock stretches far out into the bay, the kayaks were in use every day, and we were grateful for the outdoor shower. We'd definitely camp here again.

This is our favorite hipcamp location and is always fantastic. We are always well rewarded with a sanctuary of a campsite close enough to all of the surrounding restaurants if we wish to go out.

Beautiful, Quiet, Scenic, Camping.
Camping at it's best! Though this was a tricky site to get into with our giant 42ft 5th wheel, we made it happen and man I'm glad we did. This was the quietest and most relaxing spot we've been to since we started RVing. We'd love to stay again because the kids had an amazing time.

No wonder this spot is recognized as one of FL best.... It is perfection! All that you want, space, privacy, beautiful view. It was cold so we didn't get to have much outside time but the sunsets alone made it worth it.

Another wonderful stay here!
We obviously love it here as this was our third stay here in just over a year. Our daughter and her family live nearby, so this is a great place for us to visit with them, and it's a great opportunity for the grandkids to get out on kayaks with us, and make a lot of memories and take a lot of photos with them. We've also taken some of our most beautiful and magical sunset photographs here over the bay. We look forward to staying here again the next time we're down. Again, we loved it here and appreciate you sharing such a wonderful place. Our daughter's family loves to visit with us here, too. Thank you so much - we look forward to our next stay here.

A fantastic experience!
This is a truly special camping experience! We had complete privacy, a beautiful view, birds to watch, and plenty to explore within a short drive. With full hookups, we had a very comfortable week's stay. We so appreciated access to Nathan and Crystal's kayaks so we didn't have to bring ours. A couple of tips to help you prepare. First: bring bug spray! Being on the water, there are bugs and they do bite. Second: think about a way to hang towels and anything that might get wet so they'll dry. It's Florida and it's humid. Our towels got a little stinky -- they just didn't get dry on the hooks we usually use. We had extras and you might want to pack them, too.
