“Very nice spots”

Reviewed Oct 23, 2018

Overall Rating

Some spots are paved, others are packed sand . Great privacy between RVs, trees and bushes provide privacy. October 2018 I paid $22 per night. Includes electric and water, and there are dump stations. Great Verizon 4G. There does seem to be an unusual amount of vehicle traffic. Also, as the afternoon wore on I heard military jets flyin... more

“Disappointing ”

Reviewed Sep 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Lets start with the very soft sandy sites making it difficult to get rv level without digging in. Theres no place to do laundry, Closest laundromat is 10 miles away. No wifi. Beach wasn't that great either (even the ranger said so). Signs warning about alligators, another one saying "no swimming due to toxic water conditions". Cam... more

Site # 30. Sand, level. Narrow foliage between sites. Felt private. Great biking trails. Airplane noise. When the Blue Angels are practicing. Close to Pensacola. Electric and water. Facilities were good. We would return to this campground.

“Scenic & Mostly Peaceful”

Reviewed Nov 06, 2017

Overall Rating

We had no trouble maneuvering in our site, plenty of space. Thankful we had a bit of shade, sites 1 and 2 seemed to have direct sun most of the day, although with electric (and water) hookups, we still ran the AC a couple times. I say it was "mostly peaceful" because the Blue Angels practice a couple days per week and it is definitely... more

“Friendly and comfortable park”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2017

Overall Rating

What a wonderful little park on the intercoastal waterway between Period Key and on the outskirts of Pensacola. Unfortunately progress is pushing on the boundaries of the park. You can see some high rises off in the distance and a bit of road noise during rush hour, otherwise it is a very peaceful park. You can hear the birds chirp a... more

“Friendly state park ”

We stayed here while visiting friends in the area. Enjoyed the hiking trails and views around the lagoon. Like stated before the sites can be fairly tight. The vegetation between sites is great for privacy.

“Close walk to the lagoon, tight sites, boardwalk made for relaxing evening strolls”

Reviewed Dec 21, 2016

Overall Rating

We enjoyed our stay here. The sites are a tight squeeze, but we had room to take our our slide, so we can't complain too much. There's a boardwalk that takes you to the beach, but it's not a typical Florida ocean beach. Don't plan on doing much swimming here. The Salt Marsh trail was worth doing. It's mostly on sand dunes and it's a... more

“A beautiful campground, but not on the ocean”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2016

Overall Rating

I had understood that this campground was close to the beach (that you could walk to the beach on the ocean from your site), but it is not the case. There are nice trails that lead to a lagoon where you can swim, but it is very shallow. Beautiful beaches are only 10 min drive away (we loved The Gulf Islands National Seashore on Johnson... more

“Nice park - site sizes vary ”

Reviewed Nov 26, 2016

Overall Rating

Our site at Big Lagoon State Park was small but private. There is only one campsite next to site 47 and it's separated by a lot of foliage. I would have preferred site 46, it's bigger, very private, has a nice deck and cement slabs for the tires. The showers here are great. Hot water, private stalls and good water pressure.

“Smaller sites, great water access!”

Reviewed May 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here for a couple of rainy days on our way west. The park is close enough to Pensacola to visit the Naval Air Musuem, but also has some great walking paths, an observation tower, a playground, and when the weather is good they rent canoes! Would love to come back and explore this park when the weather is more favorable. Sites... more
