The Hideaway Camping Retreat

The Hideaway Camping Retreat is an Old Florida style campground in Navarre, Florida with white gravel roads, mature oak, and magnolia trees throughout, and naturally landscaped oversized RV sites placed sporadically throughout the property in vintage style, like camping used to be, creating a comfortable and inviting sanctuary.  With 371 ft on the Sound and the many trees throughout our 5 acres, The Hideaway Retreat offers more shade than most campgrounds throughout Florida, which is a blessing, so we hear from our loyal guests who not only love our friendly and welcoming nature but quickly become a part of our family. 

In the busy lives that we lead today, our Old Florida style campground takes you back to a quieter, slower, and more gracious time.  With technology and social media consuming our lives and taking away from interpersonal relationships, The Hideaway takes you back to the basics inspiring you to be present in the moment and with one another.  It connects you with the wonder and magic of the natural world and feeds your soul, something we could all use more of in these modern times.  The Hideaway is a place for adventure and natural wholesome entertainment in the beautiful outdoors.  So relax on our oversized deck overlooking the water or bring your fishing pole because our 400ft pier will be open soon.  And it doesn’t even require a fishing license!

The Hideaway is full of classic charm and character with a quaint environment of only 50 RV sites, 10 tent sites and little blue waterfront house with stunning views of the sound elevated on the highest point in Navarre, Florida. Staying true to the character of this little Florida gem with our 1930’s camp lobby and fishing pier (coming soon), we have many amenities coming that will encourage family time and togetherness such as Walking Trails, Volleyball, Bocce Ball, Cornhole Game, Bicycles, Community Firepit (for roasting s’more’s and creating memories), fishing pier, paddle boards and kayaking and of course our private sandy white beach on the sound.  Plus, a new laundry for comfort and easy living.  So pardon our progress while we transform this little rare gem into the beautiful diamond she is.

The Hideaway… nurture your sense of wonder and connect with nature.  Where we believe in socializing and interacting with one another the old fashioned way…in person.

The Hideaway Camping Retreat is located between the beautiful beaches of Destin, Florida and Pensacola, Florida, in Navarre Florida, what some call "Old Destin."  It's a great place to relax.  Simply put, "It's Uncrowded. Unspoiled. Unlike Anywhere Else."  After all, they don't call it "The Most Relaxing Beach" for nothing!


Campers can look forward to excellent local attractions such as:

- Navarre Beach Fishing Pier (1 mile long.  It's the longest pier in the country!)

- Navarre Beach Marine Park

- Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center

- Navarre Beach Gulf Snorkel Reef

- Navarre Beach Marine Science Station

- Navarre Park

- Navarre Beach

- Opal Beach

- Gulf Breeze Zoo

- Award Winning Fishing (Navarre and Destin Florida)

- Gulfarium 

- Hurlburt Field Memorial Air Park

- Oak Tree Nature Preserve

- Bayview Park

- Plaza De Luna Memorial Monument

- Hitzman-Optimist Park

- Fort Barrancas

- Museum of Commerce

- Pensacola Bay

- Veterans Memorial Park

With mile upon mile of pristine coastline near our little campground and including our own picturesque private beach, wide open skies and fresh breezes to enjoy, it's no wonder thousands head to this side of Florida for authentic camping adventures. We'll see you soon!

The Hideaway Camping Retreat is the only local campground in Navarre Florida that allows your fur babies to run free on our private beach! After all, they're family too, right?  : )  Enjoy 371 of pristine private beach on the Sound.  Onsite paddle boards and kayaks and 400ft fishing pier (being rebuilt soon).

Tom Thumb is located directly across the street from our little camp for quick conveniences.  Walmart is just a few miles away and our award winning Gulf of Mexico beach (Navarre Beach) is just minutes from us.  There is a great little zoo, The Gulf Breeze Zoo, within 11 miles of our camp.  Amazing fishing on Navarre Beach and we're only 19 miles away from award winning fishing from Destin, FL "The World's Luckiest Fishing Village."  We're located minutes from the Gulfarium, golfing, horse back riding, and so much more! 

Overall Rating: 4.5

Beautiful campground with amazing views, ideal location and nice amenities. The magnolia trees throughout the campground make it very picturesque and the sunsets are stunning. Very close to the causeway that takes you to Navarre Beach. Close to shopping, restaurants and activities in Destin.

My husband and I went on our first camping trip to the Hideaway. The rent for a tent spot was reasonable. Once we got there and started setting up the mosquitos and gnats were horrible. We bought citronella candles that have sticks for the ground and was told we couldn't use them-no open flames.?? We stayed five nights and was invaded the whole time.


Perfect place to stay on the Santa Rosa Sound. Very relaxing and friendly campers everywhere. Nice beach area with very clear water and sandy for fifty yards out ! Very shady and clean campgrounds too. Jeanie and her staff are awesome and helpful and are always near if needed !! We were in a Motorhome facing the Bay so it does'nt get any better than that !!! We Love it so much that we booked three more stays with them. Happy Camping and see ya'll there !!!!!!!!!

We stumbled on this place after noticing every state park campground in the area was booked solid, and we didn't want to spend hundreds on RV 'resorts' - it was so inviting from the bay views, the saltwater breeze, and the beautiful trees making you forget where you are. The staff is very accommodating and this entire place has such a cozy feeling - the way camping should be! We will definitely be back!

Hello to all the happy campers out there. Want to be happier go to the hideaway camping retreat this is by far the nicest camp I have ever seen and I have been to a lot of campgrounds great trees very nice new gravel roads, the beach so peaceful. The campground is setup in away that your not on top of each other. Some of the sites have great view of the water very nice. Oh I forgot to mention the sites have full hookups. Although I was in a motor home one night while walking the dog I went in the bathhouse just to see them, they did not disappoint at all very well kept and very clean. This was a very good experience. This review would not be complete without me mentioning the staff Jeanie the owner is great she does her best to meet all your needs and she is so nice really makes you feel welcome. The rest of the staff is great too. I would recommend the hideaway to everyone for a very pleasant camping experience.

Hi! l'm Jeanie, the new VERY proud owner of this rare little gem, The Hideaway Retreat. I wanted to write to introduce myself and share with you that I bought it just over 3.5 months ago when it was formally the Magnolia Beach Campground and am transforming it! We are polishing her up and turning her into the beautiful diamond she is. It's a-lot of work, I work day and night, but, I love every minute of it! I certainly couldn't do it without my loyal and hard working team. But, the best part of what I do is meeting our guests, really nice and kind people like yourselves and creating new friendships with them. I know a few prior longterm residential guests that lived on the property for years prior to me buying it were very upset to leave as we came in, cleaned it up, and made a lot of changes. And, change is hard for many people. We turned it from a long term residential campground to a tourists - transient (daily/ weekly) campground with some monthly sites during off season. And, as hard as it was for me and I know them, I try to focus on the positive and good in every situation, and I only wish them the best! I'm so passionate about the The Hideaway and creating something really special for our guests. I hope for you too to create beautiful memories with your loved ones and make new friends at our campground. I'm constantly hearing from our guests "how welcomed they feel, there is a good vibe here and they definitely feel the love at our camp"....which is the biggest compliment we could ever receive! We also hear a-lot about our beautiful mature Oak and Magnolia trees throughout the property and the loads of shade they offer our campers. I must say, I first fell in love with the trees and being the huge tree huger that I am, I refused to cut down a single tree in order to fit another site! I wanted to maintain the boutique feel of our campground with only 50 RV sites and 10 tent sites. I was also drawn to our incredible waterfront views, with 371 ft on the Sound, simply put, it's tranquil and breathtaking! It was important to me to maintain the natural beauty of the property and the cool vintage layout style of the sites, it's not a parking lot style campground, but one where the sites are placed sporadically throughout, offering more space between each site, like camping used to be. I hear from our seasoned campers just how hard that is to find anymore. Needless to say, we don't have a commercial feel with a lot of pavement but a very natural one with white gravel roads and sites offering an Old Florida style look and feel. Our trees muffle any noise too so it's very quiet and peaceful. We are constantly hearing from our happy guests who say just how much they appreciate this about our little camp. I want to personally thank you for your interest in our little piece of heaven. I'm humbled by the positive feedback we hear and the love we feel from our guests everyday. I hope to meet you soon and have you too become a part of our Hideaway Family. I think you'll love our friendly and welcoming nature. Your pets will love us too as we are the only local campground that allows your fur babies to run free on our private beach! After all, they're family too, right? So, I say we get back to basics, back to nature, living fully present in the moment, and interacting with one another the old fashioned way, in person. Happy Camping. : )

Hey Camping friends! What a great place to visit and stay. Very close to many different attractions in Navarre, Ft Walton and even Destin. The campground has new management and this spot has been totally renovated with upgrades to roads, paths, camping sites, a common area, bay side pier, and landscaping to name a few. And one of the best attractions is the old oaks and magnolia trees throughout the campground providing shade on each site. I stayed for several days last week and had a great experience. I reccomend this campground and rate it a 5 star. Jeannie the owner has done an outstanding job. Managment was very helpful and assisted in locating my site and parking properly. I will be back next month for sure. A great stay indeed! Emory Hubbard

I was very skeptical about booking multiple sites for Memorial Day weekend because of the pictures on the internet. Once I got here we learned that Magnolia Campground had a new owner and changes were being made. We had friends and family on 5 sites Memorial Day weekend and we all had a blast. I enjoyed it so much that I’m still here. It is quite, shady, breezy, and just an overall cozy campground. Jeanie, (owner) is very friendly and accommodating. She has already made changes of improvement and is constantly working to improve this gem.

Never received email of confirmation and no where on site does it say about cancellation policy. Had to cancel due to storm heading to La. Which I leave in flood zone close to coast and called to cancel and was told I could not get refund due to a 14 day policy which I can not find. Heard all kinds to good reviews due to new owner but make sure if you book there get email confirmation and ask about policy for cancellation.

Hideaway is a hidden treasure. This park is in the process of being revamped. This is the old Magnolia that was an old campground that had a great deal of long term rentals. The new management is making this a true campground. Nobody will live there! Beautiful oak trees for shade, nice beach and each site is being graveled with new sod. I think this is going to be Navarre’s new hidden treasure. We will definitely be back soon!

Sheri Burgin

Outstanding older park with so much to offer. Under new ownership so it is going to get very popular very quickly. Beautiful shade trees throughout the park and more upgrades to come. A must if you are looking for peace and quiet for a weekend !

Magnolia Beach Campground is under new ownership and let me tell ya, this place is now 5 stars. The new owner has turned this place around in just a short period of time. This place was once a scary place on a beautiful piece of land and now it is the total package of a campground. Beautiful graveled roads and sites, amazing shady spots, and a pet friendly private beach. Staff is extremely friendly. There will be more and more upgrades coming in the next couple months is what the owner and staff explained. Including bath house and laundry room upgrade, fishing pier rebuild, kids activity area, kayak and paddle board rentals and more. This is the place to be. This is a true unique outdoor experience. She has even changed the name to reflect the changes to The Hide Away A Camping Retreat. Don't let the other negative reviews from the past fool you this place is BEAUTIFUL and unique.
