This is the most amazing state park ever! The large sites have concrete pads, tall pines, & privacy. Very Big Rig friendly! No fire rings permitted (for obvious reasons) but you may use your own fire pit on the concrete pad. The pool was nice, but really, who needs a pool when miles of undisturbed white sand beach are so close? Just .7 mile walk, bike ride or tram ride to boardwalk that protects the dunes and serves as gateway to a beach uncluttered by commercialism or city crowds. This park is very nice, well managed by staff with support of some wonderful volunteers. The laundromat was clean & pleasant. We biked thru the park and on the 30 mile bike trail just outside the park. Nearby stores and seafood market -- we needed nothing more for a very pleasant week in paradise!

simply put.... it doesn't get any better. all of the other reviews are right on the money. the best beach in florida (entire southeast actually) in my opinion. you can walk 50 yards in either direction from the walkway and have total seclusion. the sites are far better than any campground we have ever stayed at. can't say enough about the staff either!!

This has to be our favorite CG. Topsail beats Disney's Ft. Wilderness hands down for landscaping, privacy and site size. In five years of RVing we have yet to find a better CG. It is just amazing that this is a state park! You have you choice of using the beach, their pool, tennis courts and club house. The dity of Destin is only about 12 miles west of Topsail. Everything is clean and well maintained. It is only a short walk to the beautiful beach. If you don't want to walk Topsail provides a tram to the beach that runs each hour in the summer months and every other hour in the winter months. I have never seen the beach crowded. There might be a few people near the boardwalk, but you can walk just a few hundred feet in any direction and you pretty much have the beach to yourself.

All the glowing reviews are deserved, this is as good as it gets. Tram runs every hour or you can bike to the beach (7/10's of a mile). The Emerald Coast beaches are as good as any in Florida

This is absolutely the nicest campground we have visited. Campsites are wide, private, and beautifully manicured. A tram runs hourly to and from the beach. Showers/restrooms are spotless. We saw campground employees actually vacuuming the roads!! My husband's brother rented a cottage while we were there. Their cottage was very nice. We loved this park and will definitely visit here again.

Very nice campground, most sites are shady and have shrubs between for privacy. There is no ground fires but we were able to use our coleman fire pit without problems. Bath house were always clean, I think I was the only one that used the shower while there. There was a hurricane out in the Gulf while we were there so no swimming and we did not get to see how nice the beach could be, there was the nice white sand, but there was very black sand that made your feet turn dirty, this might have been because of the rough surf. Great pool, shuttle board. Staff seemed friendly, pretty much left you alone. Long way to the beach, would not walk it since it was very warm and sunny. There is a shuttle tram, but we rode bikes. Restrooms are at the beach with showers, and a place to lock your bike. My husband felt like we were in a moblie home park more than a campground, so if you like more rustic natural florida scenery, this may not be your park. It was very clean and well landscaped.

Great Park. NO, Really Great Park. This is the finest park we have ever stay in. The place is beautifully landscaped between sites. Wide paved streets. Full hook-ups w/cable. Pool, shuffle board, store. Cleanest bathroom/showers I have ever seen. Great place for walking & bike riding. Shuttle ride to the beach. Restaurants near-by.

This place is awesome. Sites were concrete and perfectly level. Each site was landscaped with nice plants and automatic sprinklers and street lights at the end of the drive. Bathhouses were very clean and modern. There is a paved bike trail down to the beach that is ~1/2 mi or there is a trolly that comes around every 2 hours to carry you to the beach or bring you back. This is one of the few SP in FL that has a swimming pool. Staff very nice. The beach was picture perfect. Between my wife and i growing up we have been to alot of different beaches and this beach was by far the prettiest and cleanest. the water was crystal clear. I would highly reccomned this place and will visit again.

Located on Florida's Emerald Coast and near some of the world's most beautiful beaches, Gregory Moore RV Resort at Topsail Hill State Preserve is one of the highest rated campgrounds in North America (TL 10/10/10, Woodall's 5/5) and from our perspective, the rating is well deserved. The 170 unit campground is situated in a stand of pines and is well landscaped. Each site has water, electricity (20/30/50 amp), sewer, and cable TV. Some sites have telephone hookups. The sites have concrete parking areas with generous patios and picnic tables. The swimming pool is heated and covered during the winter (water temperature was around 87 degrees). The park has its own tennis court, shuffleboard, basketball, and horseshoe areas. There is a recreation hall, planned activities, and modem access at the office. Every type of recreational activity is nearby including deep sea fishing, golf, and horseback riding. For those who like fine dining and/or shopping, this area is exceptional. Highway 98 is dotted with restaurants and shopping malls. The Gregory Moore RV Resort at Topsail Hill State Preserve is truly worth a visit.

Agree with all the other reviews. This is probably the nicest cg we have ever stayed in. The beach is beautiful. All of the facilities are spotless, and the sites are large, level, and nicely landscaped. This cg deserves a 10 all the way. Can't wait to go back

This is the most beautiful park that we have ever seen. Landscaped to perfection, large private sites, heated pool for year-round use, private beach with shuttle service to & from, great clubhouse for group use, and very friendly personnel. Also stayed in October 2003 in site 69.

My husband and I biked through the Gregory E. Moore RV Resort here and were very impressed with this well-kept park. Each site had full hookup with electric, water, and sewer. Most of the sites are well spaced and many are shaded with privacy. For a state park campground, the facilties are amazing. A beautiful pool, tennis courts, spotless showerhouse, laundry room, and lakes for fishing. But the best part is the easy beach access. There is a 1/2 mile paved path to the beach you can walk or bike, plus a tram is available. And words cannot describe how beautiful the beach is here. Soft, white sand and turquoise blue waters. The park is also on the 17 mile 30A bike path, so bring your bikes!
