Anyone with experience camping near the gulf?

I go to destin and panama city alot. I want to go again soon and I was thinking about camping out this time. I like to go camping by the lake where I live and thought it be a cool Idea. My question is this

whenever you camp at one of the state parks (for example Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park or Henderson)

are you locked in after the "park gates" close to where you cant go anywhere outside the park or are you free to come and go as you please no matter what time it is?

Hope that makes sense!

The gates have a keypad and you will have the combination number if you are staying there. More info on this page: https:/…reservation-information

Sites fill up way in advance, shop early.
