This is campground located within the Gulf islands National Seashore on Santa Rosa Island. You travel through Pensacola Beach west to Fort Pickens State Park. It is a slow, fairly long drive on a well paved road as you traverse the natural dune areas with speed restrictions. Reservations need to be made in advance. Park Ranger Staff at check-in were...

This was our first time camping at Ft Pickens which also was our first national park experience as well. We loved it. The check in process was super fast. We stayed in Loop A in site 37. This site had zero shade however we had a Clam screen tent so we were ok and it was very breezy and not...

I passed this place over when researching places to stay because it looked like an RV parking lot. But when our other plans fell through, we came here and I was glad we did. Yes, it is crowded but it was fun to see everyone enjoying themselves - kids playing, dogs walking, mom and dad grilling, campfires. Everyone was respectful...

We traveled 13hrs and had. Agreat experience at this camp site. Very friendly campers. I felt safe with my kids. The showers and bathrooms were new and nice. We enjoyed our stay. All of the campers followed the 10pm quiet rule! Not too far from the beach. Only downside is the camp store is closed and you have to drive...

Great facility, good trip. The campground and park are well maintained. The sites were a bit short, and we had to park our vehicle away from our site. The camp store and laundry seemed to be permanently closed.

The beach is gorgeous with many easy accesses. If perhaps the beach side is too windy, the sound is a great place to spend the day. We enjoyed observing the many osprey in and around their nests surrounding the campground. The new bathhouses/restrooms were so comfortable. The town of Gulfbreeze is a great place for restaurants if desired. Fantastic experience...

We have a very nice site with electric and water. You have to remember to bring wood with you since the camp store is closed and it is a long way back to the mainland. We will definitely return here in the future.

I'm going to tell you the 4 things I wish I had been told before going. This place is in a great location for the price. You will still have to pay and entrance fee of $15 to get in the park after paying for the campsite. Now, a few pieces of advice: 1) Book your site early. This place...

Great campground for all modes of camping from tents to big rigs. It is camping on an island that is about 8 miles from Pensacola. Great family place. The campground allows campfires; big ones. The part of the island where the campground is located is only about 350 yds wide; bay on oneside, the Gulf on the other. Plenty of...

This is the most eclectic RV park we have ever stayed at. We did not want to leave. The beach is walking distance for the gulf or the bay! The closest store which is a convenience store is 7 miles away, there is no grocery store or pharmacy on the island. Very remote!
