Carrabelle Beach RV Resort Campground

Steps from a peaceful and uncrowded white sand beach, Carrabelle Beach RV Resort offers a comfortable retreat on Florida’s Forgotten Coast. But unlike the lack of urban encroachment on this side of the Florida Panhandle, the campground offers plenty of amenities and concierge service to ensure your RV camping needs are sufficiently covered. So whichever site you roll into, rest assured that it has water, sewer, and 50/30 amp electric service; cable and WiFi connection; and a picnic table. Even better, the lush, natural landscaping provides some shade from the bright Florida sun, and if the heat gets to be too much, take a dip in the large, sparkling swimming pool. Rinse off at the bathhouse while doing a load of laundry.It’s not only your little ones who will find amusement at the modern children’s playground but your furry ones, too, with their own fenced dog run and pet play area. Throw some horseshoes at the pit, enjoy gatherings at the pavilion, or cook some of your favorites at the clubhouse where there’s a kitchen. If you need provisions and even RV camping supplies, there’s an on-site convenience store to buy from. Given ample fishing grounds from the nearby rivers, bay, and the Gulf of Mexico, you’ll probably need to make the most of the fish cleaning station.And when you’ve had your fill of sand and sea, follow the Big Bend Scenic Byway Coastal Trail and head inland to Tallahassee 90 minutes' drive away.

The Great Outdoors

Find the best RV rentals in Franklin County and explore the largest forest in the Sunshine State just to the north of the campground. Encompassing an area close to 1,000 square miles, Apalachicola National Forest is deservedly famous for offering endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. The five-mile hiking trail not only flexes your legs but also fascinates as it leads to a series of sinkholes where an underwater cave system exists.The national forest also beckons with waterways that run for hundreds of miles where slow and scenic canoeing and kayaking excursions could take up most of your day. Swimming is best at the spring-fed Silver Lake while Wright Lake is for those keen to dig their heels in the white sand beach. To see more of the forest’s natural longleaf pine ecosystem, take your campervan rental on a drive along the Apalachee Savannahs Scenic Byway and cover more ground.Bringing your rental motorhome to Carrabelle Beach RV Resort puts you close to some of Florida’s richest fishing grounds. At the confluence of the Ochlockonee and Apalachee bays sits the 4,800-acre Bald Point State Park about 35 minutes’ drive from the campground. Here tidal marshes exist alongside freshwater ponds teeming with redfish, flounder, and trout. Spy the occasional alligator basking in the sun or a wading bird looking for a meal in the marshes. Sunbathers and windsurfers flock to the sandy beach shores while hikers follow designated paths through fields of wildflowers.Seclusion on miles of pristine sugar sand beach is the main selling point of Cape St. George State Reserve. In this uninhabited island, Carrabelle campers can still glimpse a slice of Florida’s original barrier island landscape. Join a guided boat tour to set foot on this corner of the Forgotten Coast if you don’t trust propelling yourself on the water in a small craft. Hiking through sand and shrub-covered trails is popular on the island including a well-deserved stroll on nine miles of undeveloped beach.

Exploring the Area

Camping at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort lets you experience “Old Florida.” Visit the Carrabelle History Museum and view tools from various industries – turpentine, lumber, and commercial fishing – local artifacts and personal memorabilia that detail the history of settlement along "Rio Carrabella" or "beautiful river." Close to the beach, the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum memorializes the amphibious soldiers of WWII who trained here before deployment, and houses uniforms, equipment, and souvenirs shared by the camp’s veterans.A Carrabelle icon, there’s not much to see at the “world’s smallest police station,” but it’s big in history and quite hard to miss if you’re driving along US-98. To see the original, visit the Chamber of Commerce office in downtown Carrabelle. There you’ll find waterfront restaurants with fresh seafood and steaks on their menu and laid-back eateries serving pizza and BBQ. Carrabelle camping also means you’ll get to sample wild-caught oysters from Apalachicola Bay where they are raked from the bottom of the bay.Carrabelle has remained a little fishing village, and the few gas stations and grocery stores in town attest to that reputation. (Nearby Eastpoint has a bit more options.) In keeping with that tradition, the Crooked River Lighthouse remains standing on its original location where it was built in 1895. After close to 100 years of lighting ships, fishermen, and oystermen, the lighthouse was decommissioned in 1995 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.So when you’re in search of beachfront campgrounds on the Forgotten Coast but still would like to enjoy some comforts of civilization, consider booking an RV rental in Carrabelle, Florida. This charming coastal hamlet has a lot to offer, and you’ll be in for a big surprise.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
