Just spent an extended weekend at this park for my nephew's birthday. I was not excited at first because it wasn't on the beach & the "beach" at this park is not quite what I was expecting. However, by the end of the trip the place grew on me & I can recommend this park. This is a very nice, clean & well kept park. It's newer, so the palm trees are small & there is no shade. We stayed on site 14. There are 2 pedestals at each site so you hook up regardless of which way you pull in. Very well thought out! It's on the bay side "beach" so you have a really nice view. The sound water isn't pretty or anything I'd want to swim in, but my kids got in several times. They came out smelling kinda fishy. Be careful on the rocks because we had several kids with us cut their feet pretty badly. There is a small, clean pool pool area beside the clubhouse. My kids always want to swim after spending time at the beach. Another plus is that you can walk to souvenir shops & restaurants.
I think the price is a little high considering there is no ocean access on site, but you can walk across the street to public beaches with no problem. Really, the walk isn't much more than those staying on the gulf side. It's cheaper than $475 a night which is about what a condo across the street will run!
Things you need to know:
They do not fill propane & to get to any store for groceries, supplies or a medical facility you have to cross the toll booth & pay $1 every time you return to Pensacola Beach. The rv park turns on sprinklers during the night & warn you to move all of your stuff so it doesn't get wet. There is very little parking for the one vehicle you are allowed on your site. Do not let your vehicle wheels touch the grass or the owner will call you & tell you how many times you broke the rule. Our mistake :( & we apologize for not realizing.
A strange thing happened while we were there. There was an empty site next to us our first night & I was awoken at 4:30 am by loud talking & laughing. A random adult couple in a white Cadillac had decided to go parking in site 15. When I went outside they were standing in the drivers side door making out. I asked them to keep it down & go inside. Then they got in the car & drove away. They weren't even staying at this park! lol. I can say that has never happened to me before. Surely this is a rarity as this has never happened to us at any park before, but we've never stayed at a non-gated park before.
There are other rv places in the area, some are even cheaper, but they are a little bit more of a drive. Overall this is a nice park in a great area. It's worth a stay & you will enjoy yourselves! Walking distance to shops & food OR you can come with everything you need & never leave!
