We checked in and someone was on our site. It is very hard to tell which site is which. Once we got that all settled, we learned that the place is teeming with poisonous snakes, so you must be careful. Also, the campground is extremely susceptible to flooding, so choose your site wisely. We were on D003 and it was a great site. When we were there, it rained several inches, and we were one of the few sites that were completely dry. We were tent camping, and our tent did not get wet. Also, make sure you keep food on hand, since the road can flood and you can get stuck there. It is 20 minutes back to civilization, so if you don't like seclusion, don't stay here. We loved that about it, because the Pensacola Beach area was too busy for our liking. The beach here at Ft. Pickens was very nice, and not crowded. Langdon Beach is a mile away and has a lifeguard and facilities and a few more visitors from the mainland. You will need to pay a park service fee to come back to Ft. Pickens, but it is very minimal. Overall, the park is minimally maintained, but then again, they don't charge much. The campground store is well stocked. You can walk to the beach and the bay side.
