Love The Beach
Ok, so here’s the deal. This is a state park with no sewer but it has a dump station. We just spent 7 nights here during COVID mess and right after hurricane mess. Currently, the only areas of the park open are the boat ramp and the campground. Some of the sites are closed due to damage. This is the second time I’ve stayed here and it’s now my go to campground when I go to the beach. Your about a 10 min drive to public beach access in Pensacola. There are several nice hiking trails and boardwalks to view nature but like I said are currently closed because of damage. The sites are hit and miss. If you have a large camper, stick with the 50 amp sites. They are long. Some of the other sites are only big enough for tents and pop ups. Look at the pics closely when you book your site to try to get one big enough. Some of the sites have concrete pads but most are sand/crushed shells. Most are relatively level. The best part, I spent 7 nights and it was less than $200 taxes included.

Have stayed here several times while visiting Pensacola. Park is on the smaller side, but as with state parks, sites are large and isolated.

Great State Park
We stayed 3 days in site 74. Its the last site on the farthest loop and very private. Its across the road from the bath house but doesn't feel intrusive at all. Was a bit tricky but we got it set up just like we wanted. Easily leveled on gravel/crushed shell ground with board under wheels. We have completely enjoyed staying here with our small dog. Pets are not allowed on the beaches but was allowed on all the trails and was not a problem for us. They have many trails you can walk and many of them a boardwalk. Lots of wildlife to see and even have an alligator in the pond. We didn't get the excitement of seeing it but another camper shared their picture and it was pretty big. Signs warn you to be careful but didnt seem to be a problem. Would still be on your guard. Views are incredible and the short drive to the beach was worth it. Beautiful. Will stay here again for sure. Naval museum which is free is a must see. Blue Angels fly all over. Stores and food not a far drive.

Clean and Peaceful
Stayed here 2 nights. The sites are clean and plenty of trees between them so it seemed secluded. The gravel sites could use some leveling and made it difficult to level the trailer. Nice and clean bathrooms. The Beach is only a short drive away, but it is perfect for paddle boards or boating. Also the Naval Aviation Museum is only a short drive as well. A must see!

Cozy state park. The sites are small but there are shrubs and trees in between the sites making it feel secluded pretty basic, no WiFi but descent cell reception, no laundry and no sewer hookup. The nature trails are pretty and peaceful but don’t come here for the beach, there isn’t one.

Real Nature Campground
This is a real nice and clean campground, there are boardwalk trails that go for miles, very well maintained, only negative is no sewer hookups, but if you can deal with that you will have a great time.
We decided to spend our days across the bridge at Johnson beach, it cost 15 dollars for a weeks pass but well worth it.

Nature At It's Best
We loved this campground. Lots of birds and animals. Campsites are close together but screened with vegetation. Big roomy clean bathhouses. Great!

We only spent one night but enjoyed the hikes through the wetlands, saw a couple of gators. As with most Florida State parks it was clean and spacious
