Camp Brooks Cottage on the Coast

Camp Brooks

Welcome to Camp Brooks!

The Blue Lagoon

Camp Brooks is an old fishing camp, from way back when, when Fort Walton Beach was known as Camp Walton, and Destin wasn't even a dot on the map. Men would come here and rent these camp cottages, which at that time had no plumbing and no electricity. People would visit to fish and, well, CAMP!


I just purchased this amazing little property and I will be maintaining the vintage feel, but adding modern day luxuries. The Blue Lagoon is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage, with a living/dining area, and a full kitchen. The space is small and can accomodate a max of four guests. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, and an air mattress for guests 3 and 4. After all, it IS a camp. :-)


Camp Brooks is located just over Brooks Bridge, which is currently under construction. We are getting a completely NEW bridge, and all our residents are super excited about it. It will bring us amazing pedestrian pathways which will eventually lead you from here right to the beachfront! Literally just over the bridge, we are about a 10 minute walk to the beach, about half a mile.


Camp Brooks comes fully furnished with linens and kitchen accessories (everything you need--but space is limited so no frills). This is a very unique property in the heart of downtown Fort Walton Beach. Walk to concerts, amazing restaurants, catch a boat ride right across the road, rent jet skis, take in a movie at Sud-n-Cinema (free tickets are included with your stay!), visit The Landing park, and my favorite thing--Publix is just right across the street. You don't need a car!


I am so excited about this cottage which is one of 7 on the property. At this time, this is the only cottage with short term rentals.
