Mar 16, 2016 - Keaton Beach, Florida

The Keaton Beach area was completely destroyed in 1993 by "the storm with no name". (From the article:) Storm surges in those areas reached up to 12 feet, higher than many hurricanes. With little advance warning of incoming severe conditions, some coastal residents were awakened in the early morning of March 13 by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico rushing into their homes. More people died from drowning in this storm than during Hurricane Hugo and Hurricane Andrew combined. Overall, the storm's surge, winds, and tornadoes damaged or...

Dec 1, 2012 - It all ends on the last day, Keaton Beach, Fl Nov 11-12, 2010

It all ends on the last Day, Keaton Beach, Fl November 11-12, 2012 We did not want to make a 400 mile trip on the last day so we decided to make one more stop. We had looked at this place called Keaton Beach over the years because it is not too far from us here in Land O’ Lakes and is one of the few Florida West Coast campgrounds actually on the Gulf of Mexico. It was not too far from the campground we stayed in on the first day of our journey, Carrabelle Beach but we wanted to see another place. It was a fitting last day. We were going to...

Apr 13, 2012 - Keaton Beach

We spent a day and an evening here doing nothing more than gazing out at the waters of the Gulf and enjoyed the company of a fellow RVer. He was a fascinating man who was born in Germany, but had lived and worked in many countries throughout the world. He full-times in his RV and we were able to exchange lots of information for great places to stay.

Mar 30, 2011 - The Gulf of Mexico

March 30, 2011: We are definitely coming back to Keaton Beach next year and will spend several days here. What a beautiful RV park, right on the Gulf of Mexico. The back-end of our motorhome can't be more than 20 feet from the water. Hazel has the back window open, and is watching the birds fly, the waves coming up on the shore, and we can hear the sounds of a thunderstorm approaching, with the rain starting to hit the roof. You need a rainy day now and then to calm your nerves. I told Hazel that when we come back, I want to employ the...

Mar 29, 2011 - Fish and Company.

March 29, 2011: The weather here in Lake Placid has been great, and we've enjoyed visiting with Dave and Helen who are perfect hosts, but it is time to pack-up and head out. Back in the Ramnes cabin on Rainy Lake in Minnesota hangs a sign "Fish and company stink after 3 days", that's not rude, just a fact of life. Hazel and I had a great time here, and after morning coffee and some final conversation, and climbed aboard our motorhome, waved goodbye, and headed North. We're on our way to visit Hazel's aunt Eunive Pittman near Panama City,...

Oct 25, 2010 - Keaton Beach, Florida

Keaton Beach is on the Gulf coast of Florida. As you can see from the photos, we are parked right at the waters edge. The rear of our RV was hanging over the sea wall. We enjoyed a couple of beautiful sunsets while watching the brown pelicans flying home. In 1993 a super storm came up so quickly that is was called the “No Name Storm”. A 10’ to 12’ storm surge of water swept across the community of Keaton Beach and killed 10 people. In the photos you will see some old pilings and a dock. The pilings used to have a restaurant on them with a...

Dec 28, 2009 - Keaton Beach, FL Old Pavilion RV Park

Monday, December 28, 2009 We traveled about 250 miles and found the Pavilion RV Park in the Passport Book. We let the GPS take us on a short cut to the park but shortly after we made the turn, realized it was just a hunting dirt road. It was dusty but not too bumpy and the car was covered with dust when we finally arrived. Our campsite faced the Gulf of Mexico and the sunset was beautiful. The large deck was a perfect spot for our afternoon cocktail as we watched our neighbor take his kayak out for a sunset ride. As evening fell, we watched...

Nov 2, 2009 - Sections of Big Bend Wildlife Management Area

Yesterday, just at sunset, I made it to a campground in Keaton Beach, on the Gulf of Mexico. The owner greeted me and said to leave the coach right where it was so I could capture the sight of the sunset. The sun had just gone down, but the oranges and pinks in the sky were fantastic. Then, she helped me get the car unhooked, parked, and hooked up to electric, water, and cable before we took care of the bill! She was nice on the phone too when I had called earlier. At first she said she was full, but then said if I didn't need sewer and...
