You need to pay for a pass into the park to see the fort and then pay for camping on top. The beaches are beautiful and less populated than the at Pensacola Beach. They do honor the America the beautiful natuonal park pass. Camping has electrical and water hookups. NO sewer but a free dump station( which can have a long line in the morning).
