“Very Good AND Very Bad”

Reviewed Dec 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This is our 2nd stay in as many years and I have to say some aspects are 1-Star and other aspects are 5-Stars. Upon arrival for our 10 day stay we were informed that our site was floode (they had had a lot of rain the previous weeks), but there were others available to choose from. I asked for a list so we could pick out a site and he ... more

“Great campground near beaches an Ft Pickens”

Reviewed Dec 05, 2018

Overall Rating

The rate I posted is the senior lifetime pass holder date. The regular rate is doulble that. The site had 50amp hookup and water. There is also an on-site dump station station in the campground for confidence. The bathrooms were clean. There are also a series of private showers which were relatively clean. The walls were stained from t... more

“Beautiful beaches! ”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2018

Overall Rating

Loved this campground. Our site was on Loop C. Not too much privacy on the sites but you should be at the beach anyway. Beautiful soft white sand! We had the beach to ourselves in November. You might want to ask about which sites flood with heavy rain. We had 24hrs of rain and there were some sites that looked like people had to move... more

“Awesome time!”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We (my wife and I) had an awesome time at Fort Pickens Campground. Our site had no shade; however, it was perfect for the low 70’s and windy weather. Would definitely prefer a shadier site if in the mid 80’s and up. Short drive to Langdon Beach which is on park property. Pavilion with plenty of tables and bathrooms. Unfortunately, ... more

“Little pricey- but beautiful beaches”

Reviewed Feb 13, 2018

Overall Rating

I though the price did not reflect the campground. No sewer, just electrical and water. The restrooms and showers were a bit dated. But the beach makes up for all of that. We stayed in loop E which is right across the street from a beach access point. Gorgeous!! The fort and museum were really neat to explore - car ride away. The si... more

“Beautiful location - Big Rigs Beware!!”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2018

Overall Rating

The park is located in a beautiful location, with the sound on the north and the gulf on the south. Enough white beach for everyone!! Better yet, due to it being many miles down the road (with no through traffic) you're not going to have the public visitors that you might have at beaches further east (so it seems more private, as far a... more

“Pretty Surroundings”

Reviewed Dec 28, 2017

Overall Rating

We really stayed at this campground for access to the fort. We camped in December however the campground was pretty full. The rangers were great at letting us switch our site once we got there and realized how little privacy we had. We stayed in 24 I think under some trees. We were new to camping and heard nuts falling on our camper al... more

“Great campground, historic fort to explore, excellent beach”

Reviewed May 19, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed 4/30/17 & 5/1/17. We arrived just before a storm and were glad to have reservations as the campgrounds were full. Loop B seemed more suited for tent campers & smaller trailers; the parking pads were short. We walked the loops (but not Loop A), and it seemed all pads were back-in. We had a level site, and although there were ... more

“Nice park, limited options for bigger rigs”

Reviewed Mar 15, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice park, reasonably large sites, bathhouses were modern and immaculate. Electric and water are a treat in a national park. Loved the sites to see inside the park. We had a couple issues which keep this from being s 10. First, distance to other area attractions off the peninsula is longer than we'd like. More importantly, the site... more
