Camping Minutes from The Beach!

Raccoon River Campground is one of the most popular Panama City Beach RV Parks in the area and is a great place to set up camp whether you’re driving around the country in an RV or roughing it in a tent.  With plenty of camping spots, a great fenced-in playground for the kiddos, pool, laundry facilities, and even a small store in the office for those “oops I forgot” moments when you’re setting up housekeeping once you’ve arrived, you’ll end up making this your gotta-go-back-there place.

When you drive in you’ll be greeted with plenty of pine trees for shade and for quiet.  It feels secluded, and you’ll be hard pressed to believe you’re so close to those white sand beaches Panama City Beach is world famous for, but you are!



For me, I really enjoyed the stories about the spring-breakers who camp there – many of them year after year.  Usually camping in tents, Marty – the resident “mom” – hands out purple bracelets and tells those teenager-but-still-kids “keep these on, so if you get turned around and can’t remember how to get back, just hold up your arm to show the bracelet and the police will bring you right back here.”   It works too.

There’s this really cool wooden rope (well, cable) bridge that sways as you walk across, and a small basketball court, and of course a playground for the little ones, and a pool if you don’t want to go to the beach.

Inside the office/store area, they’re in the process of setting up an intimate breakfast spot for those campers who love to get together in the mornings and visit for a while.  I think this will become the hot spot in the mornings before too long.

What I was truly impressed with was just how private it feels, while still so very close to not just the fabulous beach, but all kinds of shopping and activities as well.

So for those of you who prefer camping to high-rise condos, Raccoon River Campground is just the ticket.  Fantastic location and well maintained grounds.  Why, you won’t even feel like you’re roughing it at all.

Here’s what some of our previous customers have said about us:

From the moment we pulled in we felt great about this place. We were a day early but found us a spot on high ground as it was raining cats & dogs. Throughout the week everyday staff were spotted working cleaning pools, cutting grass, cleaning bathrooms, going around on golfcarts speaking with guests. The bathrooms were clean even during busy spring break!… laundry facilities top-notch. Location close to everything! You can easily walk to beautiful beach, or drive to Wal-Mart, or shopping at pier shops, play mini golf, of check out souvenir shops (also in walking distance).

And another:

First time camping here. The small campground is underneath the shade of pine trees and is very clean. Has a well-stocked camp store, nice showers and bathrooms, pools and playground. Lots of repeat campers here! What made it so great was the lady who checked us in and is present throughout the day. She’s retired Army and is a gem! You can’t beat the location; right in the heart of PCB yet it’s secluded. Only a five-minute walk to the beach!!!

So the next time you’re planning on spending some time in PCB, reserve your RV or tent spot with us.
