We absolutely loved our experience here, however that may or may not be influenced by spending the two previous nights in two separate Walmart parking lots. Haha. Anyway, the fishing at the pier was excellent (btw the pier here is licensed therefore you don’t have to have a license to fish off of it), but you have to get there at a decent hour because it gets crowded fast as it’s a smaller pier. The lots are level, we stayed at c-14 and if your like us and use the campground facilities instead of your camper then this is the spot! Like directly across the road is your showers and restrooms. The workers here are super knowledgeable about the island and the Fort. Worth taking the tours offered if your into history! The workers are also very helpful and attentive. There are also cancellation stamps on property if you collect them. I started my collection here. Worth staying at least once and the fort is a must see! Watch out for wildlife crossing the roads, crabs and small birds.

Nice camp ground not much shade and a little bit of a walk to the beach put it’s peaceful

Good But Too Many People
It’s your basic NP campground, had hot showers and clean bathrooms so that was nice, but just crowded. Maybe it was the time, around spring break so lots of people. Also had to go into town to do laundry. Tent site where we parked our van was only $14 with our access pass. For being near the gulf and a sound, it’s not as close as I’d hope to being to the water. We drove to the fort and beach then back to camp so having a bike would help. It does have some access to water within walking distance from the campground. Cool place for a history lesson, great place to play in the water, and beautiful sunsets.

We think the place is great if you looking to spend time on the beach and explore the fort. The price isn't bad at all for your site but they don't say you'll have to pay 15$ to get into the park to even get to the campground and it's a 7 day pass that the lest days they have. We had to pay that for just 3 day stay. The showers rooms are very hot during the day and that's with the fan on.

Great Beach Park
Wonderful place to enjoy the beaches and see the old fort. Campground bathrooms...umm, trying to be polite, they must have been designed by a college drop out. Terrible drainage, terrible air flow, poorly designed. One HUGE drawback, they allow pets but don't have a place for our extended family members to enjoy the sand and saltwater. BIG disappointment.
