Lighting/Noise: It gets pretty dark and quiet at night... and while we were here there were no rowdy campers.
Hiking/Walking/Biking: There are many miles of beaches, trails and roads to walk or ride bikes on.
Comments: We will be coming back to this campground over & over again!!!! It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy.
Things to See & Do: Right here in the park is Fort Pickens built in 1836. It is a great fort for exploring and one of the largest we've seen. Also if you are a bird watcher there are many osprey and othe sea faring birds to watch here. You can go to Historic downtown Pensacola, the Pensacola Naval Air Station and Naval Aviation Museum, the Pensacola Lighthouse and other historic sites. Also at the Naval Base is Pensacola National Cemetery. There are miles & Miles of the beaches of the "Emerald Coast" of the Gulf of Mexico and Pensacola Bay. Plus many good restaurants & nightspots.
Rating: (9) This park for us is a ideal place to spend a couple of weeks and having fun in the sun... if you like the beaches it can't be beat. It doesn't have sewer or it would rate a 10 in my books.
Come & Enjoy beautiful sunsets
Have Fun & Travel Safe
