Usually when we camp we like to rough it, but every once in a while it’s certainly nice to be spoiled; Fred Gannon’s campground spoils its campers more than a gallon of milk left in the sun for a month. The 42 sites are pretty large and shady and include water, electricity, a fire ring, and a picnic table. The bathhouse is air-conditioned and heated, and there are even laundry and vending machines available. The campground is right by the bayou so some sites look out onto the water, and 2/3 of the park’s trails are accessible from the campground for your evening stroll. Four of the sites are even ADA accessible. You’ve probably lived in apartments less accommodating than this campground.

Nice state park with clean, accessible amenities, and well-maintained trails with plenty of interpretative signage. Sites on the right of the road (3, 5, 7, etc) have a bit more privacy between sites, but all of them feature quality fire rings, picnic tables, and level ground. We had a great experience using it as a base camp to explore the Destin area!
