Grayton Beach State Park, Destin Reviews

  • This area is my home away from home. Been coming here multiple times a year for 17 years. My husband's family has been part of Grayton for more than 35 years. We love it here. It's very family oriented and truly a great place. Red bar is located close by but I usually don't go there. They have good food but Im not a bar kind of person. Now on to Grayton State Park since this is supposed to be about that. Grayton is a great place to vacation and I hope to call the area my home someday. The sheriff's department is great about patrols around here and there are multiple protected areas for turtles and for the sand dunes. The Lake is beautiful and I think it is technically part of the State park too.. I can't think of much else to say. We Love it here and you and your family will too!

  • Our goal is to hit all 174 state parks. This is worth the trip. The camping is private insights 1 through 37. A little more open otherwise. It is within a bikes ride to shopping and really nice restaurants. The beach is beautiful. Clearwater. Highly recommend this is a visit.

  • Great park and beach. GPS tries to take you to the cabins, so follow the signs to get to RV camping. Improvements scheduled in 2018 , some camp sites will not be available .

  • If you want an amazing place to paddle, this is it! Launch from the state park ramp, paddle the lake through the dune canals straight down to the beach! Best place to paddleboard!

  • Went in October. Beautiful beach. Not crowded. Great amenities (clean bathrooms, outdoor shower station, ample parking).
