We camped here for 2 weeks after staying at Topsail Hill Preserve for 2 weeks, which is only 20 minutes away. Obviously since both are along the same stretch of the gulf the beaches at both parks are absolutely gorgeous, the emerald water & soft sugar sand beaches are stunning! Grayton Beach campground does not have as many campsites but they do have some sites with full hookups also. The facilities are nice and kept very clean. No designated bike trails in the park, just the shared road from campground to beach parking lot. However there is the nice paved trail that goes from the state park through the quaint towns of Watersound, Seaside, Watercolor, etc, which makes for very pleasant bike rides into picturesque towns for dining and shopping. Our campsite was very large and private with the exception of nightly visits from the local raccoons that did get into our neighbors cooler one night eating their entire key lime pie, so suggest not leaving any food or coolers out at night.
We are just passing through and this was a perfect spot. The park is on the ocean with only a short walk to the beach. Sites are separated with folage spacious and level. Bathrooms neat, clean with good showers, and the site with full hookup was only $28 plus tax. What a bargain!
Stayed here for 1 night and paid just under $27 including tax. Be sure to make a reservation or get to the park early in the day to get a spot as it fills up quick! Decent size campsites with good privacy, bathrooms are well maintained, close to the beach - fine sugar sand and crystal clear ocean waters!
