Description: Near Pensacola and convenient to I-10. Two sections both fairly new. We stayed on site 65 in the brand new East section which has paved roads with gravel pads and concrete patios. The West section is at the office and has a boat ramp, small swimming pool and clubhouse. Those sites are grass/gravel with paved road. All sites are FHU 50A and about 40 feet wide. Located on a canal leading into Escombia Bay. New trees planted and woods around East section help cut back the traffic noise somewhat. Wendy in the office is friendly and informative about the area sights, stores and restaurants.
Activities: We stayed here because it was very convenient to our doctor’s offices for our wellness checks. Gin finally got new glasses. Turns out she didn’t need eye surgery, just needed prescription eye drops. There is a lot to do in the Pensacola area but we didn’t do it all. We checked out Crestview since our mail forwarding service is located there. The Blackwater Heritage State Trail is a nice paved Rails to Trails bike path in Milton. We biked 16.5 miles one day. We went to Fort Pickens to check out the Fort and it’s museum. The beach there is very nice and there are a lot of free public access parking lots to the beach all along the coast. We certainly did our share of shopping and restaurant hopping. We never made it to the Naval Aviation Museum so I guess we’ll have to go back.
Trash and Recycle: Each section has it’s own dumpster. No recycle at the rv park but there is a county bin at the Suntrust Bank near the Rail Trail in Milton. Also a recycle bin just before entering Fort Pickens property.
