We stayed in a one bath, one bedroom with two beds and a pull out couch in the living room. Before my trip I read a few reviews and was a little leery however the cottage was nice. The cottage was clean and not dingy as the appliances, paint, flooring, and windows were all like new and well maintained. There was also a bath mat in the tub which is a huge plus for my slippery little one (LO). We couldn't close the door to the bedroom without putting the bed at a angle but in my opinion that is not a big deal. We had some difficulty adjusting the fridge temp as everything toward the back of the fridge would freeze. The laundry room was also well maintained and not dingy. My pre-teen and teen nephews enjoyed playing volleyball with other vacationers and my brother in law enjoyed the tiki bar. We also got to watch the Blue Angels practice!
You will need water shoes as the walk to the beach is across rocks, grass, and tree area. The shoreline closest to the water is fairly steep so I was nervous that my LO would roll into the Gulf. We rented a pontoon boat from the Navy marina down the street and spent a whole day in the Gulf. We took the boat out to an island and a really cool very shallow area of the Gulf that a lot of other boaters were enjoying also.
For our time in the Park we brought all the stuff you would normally take on a vacation plus we had water shoes, toddler life jacket (for the pontoon boat), quarters for laundry, laundry detergent, beach towels, charcoal, lighter fluid, matches, beach toys, volleyball, pillows, and bath soap. If your rent the pontoon boat and you have children make sure to request the boat with a full cover.

We stayed in a two bedroom cabin on the beach. The beach access was great and the view from the decks beautiful. That is the total positive I can say about the cabins.

Besides the beach cabins, there are also one and two bedroom cabins on the bluffs just a little further from the beach. The cabins need a good cleaning and updating. The beds are sunken in and our cabin was completely overrun with ants. My daughter put her suitcase on the floor in the bedroom. No food of any kind in the bedroom to attract the ants but the next morning all of her clothes were covered in about 100 ants. The comment from the camp management was that it was not a priority to take care of pest control and ants will happen. Really? Try telling a 15 year old girl to go ahead and sleep with the ants cause they were in her bed also. There is no housekeeping during your stay. I did know this ahead and actually preferred the idea of keeping it clean ourselves but it should have been clean to start with. They will do towel exchange during your stay. Towel exchange is 1-3 pm ONLY. You are asked to clean the cabin before you check out. I was looking forward to this stay and did not in any way expect a hotel simply would have appreciated clean and pest free with beds that were moderately comfortable.

We traveled with 2 adults and 4 kids (ages 10, 8, 6, 2). The 2 bedroom cabin easily slept 7. The beach access was easy to get to and the cabin areas were extremely well kept. Grills in between each cabin were large and easy to work with. Each cabin was well equipped to make your own food. The patios were excellent for watching the gulf and relaxing. 32 inch tvs in each cabin with DVD players enabled the last minutes of the day for relaxing and movie watching. Will definitely go back!!!

Maybe some of the other reviewers were looking for a hotel, but this is a campground. It's got some cabins but the main thrust is the area for RV's and tents. There is a nice clubhouse with several tables and chairs as well as a TV. The laundromat is located next to the bathrooms, which are excellent for campsite bathrooms. The showers are home-quality, with great pressure. Everything is kept clean and neat. RV spots come with full power, sewage, cable TV and water hookups. Tent sites are more rustic, without power or water. They do come with a firering and a picnic table, and there are sufficient shade trees for tent placement. Since this site is on NAS Pensacola, all the visitors are either active duty or retired. People are very friendly, and the staff is very helpful. The beach is mere steps away, and it's basically a private beach. We spent all morning on the beach and only saw one other couple. The Pensacola Lighthouse is about 1/4 mile away and is well worth the visit. Rates for the 8 tent sites are $6/night for military and $7/night for DOD. There are 51 RV sites renting for $23-29/night with some sites available for long term rental (up to three months). There are also the cabins, but I would advise bringing either an RV or a tent for this stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the tent sites. 1, 4, 5, or 8 would be the best sites - they are on the ends and you don't have neighbors on both sides. For RV's, sites 46-51 are the ones closest to the beach.

The cabins cost 100 a night, for a one bedroom suite. The bedroom had two beds in it, I think they were fulls, maybe queens. The beds were sunken in, which made for a lousy night of sleep.
The location was great, you could walk right to the beach in about 100 yards. If plan on just staying there at the beach, swimming and fishing, this is your place.
The main room had the TV and kitchen all in one. It was clean and family friendly. There was one problem with the bedroom, you couldn’t close the door unless you moved the bed a few inches out of the way. It was kind of a weird set up.
Some of the downsides was no laundry in the unit, or free wi-fi. Wi-fi was available for $8 a day, 15 for the week. There is a small laundry mat down the road. There is a check in procedure when you go into the cabin, they go over a checklist. When you check out, you have to clean it. That means take out all trash, sweep, wipe down everything.
There is no maid service. You can go up the road an exchange towels and stuff on a one-for-one bases.
The service was so-so. Although the view is great, you will not sleep at night because the beds were terrible. Also, there was just one tv, compared to two at the Navy Gateway inn down the street.
A night or two is ok here, but we couldn’t sleep well so it was kind of a downer. Also, if you need to get out fast, you have to clean everything first. Including taking the linen off of the beds. Maybe you will like it. We did a first, but after two days we decided to check out. If you’re a true camper at heart, you will probably like this place. The Oaks does have a good web site with all of their information, check it out.
BTW, they are located close to the lighthouse, museum, and Navy Lodge. Give me a thumbs up if this was helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 9, but I think all of the units were pretty good. Units 1-8 looked like them may have had a better view of the water.
