Be Right Solutions by the river

8 sites · RVs, Tents5 acres · Ponce De Leon, FL
5 acres right off Hwy 20 adjacent to the Choctawhatchee River Boat Ramp near Ebro, Fl. The bridge muffles the sound of the traffic but not enough for light sleepers. Good views of the river. Beautiful dock for fishing. Less than 2 miles to Dollar General for most of your needs, 4 miles to Bruce, Fl. Learn more about this land: Tent camping on the Choctawhatchee River. Two public boat launches right next to the property.  The boat launch has a port-a-potty as do we. We have an outdoor shower that has instant hot water.  We can accommodate boat parking on the property. We have a dock that you can tie your boat to but the water level is often not good for getting on and off the boat.   I'm putting a road into the back so you can go in and out without to boat dock without crossing the road..  At present, you sometimes need a 4 wheel drive to get to the back of the property.   For those of you who wish to boondock with your trailer or motorhome, we can accommodate at most times.    There is a breakfast nook at the tiny house on the hill with a barbecue available.

The best camping near Grayton Beach State Park guide

Overview

About

With one mile of sugar-white sand fronting the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, it’s easy to see why the waterfront at Grayton Beach State Park is consistently rated one of the most beautiful beaches in America. This popular Florida state park offers a convenient campground for RV and tent camping, a separate cabin site, and 2,200 acres that include Western Lake, a rare coastal dune lake found in only a few locations worldwide. A convenient boat ramp allows visitors to go paddling and kayaking in the brackish waters, while anglers can try their luck in both fresh and saltwater. Go hiking or biking on nature trails that wind past massive sand dunes, salt marshes, and a thick coastal forest of magnolias, scrub oaks, and pine flatwoods, teeming with birds and other wildlife.

Notable Camping Spots

The full-facility Grayton Beach Campground offers 59 sites, with restrooms, hookups, and dump stations. The cabin site is located around one mile west.

  • Best for lake views: Even numbered sites from 6 to 28 face Western Lake through the brush.
  • Best for large RVs: Sites 39 to 61 offer more parking space and larger turning radiuses for RVs up to 40 feet.
  • Best for families and groups: 30 cabins offer creature comforts with 2 bedrooms, one bath, kitchenettes, and separate beach access.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Florida residents can make campsite reservations 11 months in advance, while non-residents can make reservations 10 months in advance. Cabins must be reserved at least one day prior, while campsites can be reserved the same day.
  2. Check for free sites throughout the day. New sites become available daily at 8am EST, while cancellations are released back into the inventory on a random basis.
  3. If you can’t reserve a spot ahead of time, show up first thing in the morning to grab any unreserved first-come, first-served basis.

When to go

Summer is the busiest season at Grayton Beach State Park, with high temperatures, large crowds, and ranger-led programs. Consider visiting in the spring or fall, when the weather is still pleasant but the crowds thin out. Expect peak season fees for cabin rentals from February through July. Sea turtle nesting season runs from May to October and may lead to restricted areas on the beach. Be sure to check the weather before confirming plans if traveling during hurricane season, from June to November.

Know before you go

  • The ranger station offers canoe and kayak rentals, and ice and firewood are available for purchase inside the park. For meals, bike rentals, and other supplies, the towns of Grayton Beach and Seaside are both nearby.
  • There are no lifeguards at Grayton, so swimmers should be careful when in the water.
  • The park offers several accessible cabins, campsites, beach Mobi-mats, and a beach wheelchair for use.
  • Anglers should check that they have the appropriate freshwater and saltwater fishing licenses if they plan to fish in the surf or on Western Lake.
  • Pets are not allowed in cabins, cabin areas, or on the beach.
  • Late arrivals should call the camping areas before 5pm to arrange for entrance after hours.
