We came during the week of Father's Day and the campground was pretty full, but the beach was still mostly empty and absolutely gorgeous. We explored the fort and a few trails and had lunch in Pensacola at the Native Cafe (definitely try the fish tacos!) Due to the hurricanes, shade is very limited on most of the sites... if... More

We visited spring break 2015. Our campsite was large, and the bathrooms were newly renovated. The beach was absolutely beautiful, both the gulf and bay. We saw the blue angels practice and it was AMAZING!!! The only problem was parking is very tight and the overflow parking is quite a distance to walk. My daughter did step on a snake,... More

The old fort and surrounding beaches are incredible. You can stand on top of the old gun placements and look out over the white sand on three sides. You can see why this place was never attacked. You can walk on the beach and lose yourself. The campground is pretty nice also. Loop E is the newest with new bathrooms.... More

We are a family of five that recently acquired an RV so we can "get busy living". My husband and I were looking for the perfect inaugural adventure. I love the beach, he loves history...Fort Pickens was PERFECT! The campground is clean and quiet. There was the perfect mix of tents, pop-ups and motorhomes. It is flat and perfect for... More

Great campground with new clean facilities!!! They have built all new facilities! The only downside is the campground is so popular that the camp sites all fill up early. If you're going be certain to reserve your spot early!!! The Senior discounts make it very inexpensive! Be sure to get the lifetime entry card to the park (I think its... More

This was 4 day get away for my husband and I. We tent camped on Loop B and had a wonderful time! When booking pay very close attention to the length of the site! The vegetation may be the ugliest of any park we have ever camped due to damage from past Hurricanes but was completely irrelevant when compared to... More

We were lucky enough to score a spot in the B Loop (site B6), and had a great camping experience. We arrived after the check-in closed, but we were nicely greeted and oriented to the camp by hosts as they were on an evening stroll. Roads are well labeled to easily find where you are supposed to go. Of note... More

This is our second time @ Fort Pickens Campground in the Gulf Island National Seashore. We came back as there was more to see in the Pensacola area and this is a perfect spot to operate out of. And the National Park is wonderful. We did the fort tour - what history - great knowledge by the rangers. Loads to... More

We were lucky enough to score tent site B6, and we had a FANTASTIC stay This site is close enough for a quick walk to the camp store (more of a small, poorly stocked snack shack than camp store, though), close but not toooo close to the bathroom, and has a nice mix of shade and sun.

This was our second time staying at Fort Pickens Campground, and we can't say enough good things about it! We stayed in site C46 which was a corner site on the C loop and it provided plenty of privacy. The campground seemed to be completely full each night, yet we felt as if we were the only ones there.
