This is a campground with Good Sam branding and one of 17 in the Legacy Group.
Entry is at a traffic light and the holding area for registration is tight. No more than two coaches are able to pull in off busy Navarre Parkway at a time.
Registration however is quick and efficient. The campground is run by a group of well-informed and helpful women who are eager to help.
The campground has four pull-through's for large coaches, listed as E-1 through E-4 and are close to the gate. E-2 has a very large evergreen tree which makes it virtually impossible to turn in without branches dragging along the right side of the coach. The ladies promised that it would be trimmed or removed soon.
The rest of the sites are smaller and not paved. All seem to drain well.
There are many cabins for non-RVers and are described by others on this site. (We were there in a motorhome)
There is a clean swimming pool, two laundry rooms and a small beach. On a plaza above the beach were many loungers facing out over Santa Rosa sound which separates Navarre from its Gulf shore. (Technically, this campground is not in Navarre Beach.) There is a pier stretching over a hundred feet or so into the Sound, an inviting place to watch the sunsets. There is evidence that crabbing takes place on the pier... but ask first!
The campground is narrow making turns rather tight. Sites close to the water are attractive but a little smaller and closer together.
The E-2 site we were in had a grill, a nice patio extension from the concrete driveway pads on which we were parked.
Landscaping at this site was beautiful and gave a feeling of privacy,
50-amp electrical service and water pressure were adequate. We were there in December and no one was running air conditioning, something that always improves service. Summer might be different.
Showers and restrooms were not inspected. The laundry room at the rear of the front office was clean and machines operated properly.
Overall, this is a friendly campground and a nice stopover between New Orleans and northern Florida. However, at $60 a night this is a really expensive campground.
We traveled in a 44' motor home.
