I read the preceding review and was amazed at the vehement complaining concerning this campground. We have had nothing but a pleasant experience during our stay and I would say that much of that is due to the fact that there are rules and guidelines in place. I guess the rule holds true that you cannot please everyone. All campgrounds have rules and I can fault no one for not wanting to assume the liability of a person's life during a hurricane. This is probably the same person that would sue if their trailer was damaged during the same hurricane should they be allowed to stay here. Bottom line is that the rules are in place for the protection of the park and it's residents. If you don't like them, then go somewhere else. I for one appreciate them. I feel protected by them. We have been here for over 6 months and I would not want to stay anywhere else. You will find this same sentimentality among other long term and short therm residents. This is our home away from home. Allow me to address the darkness issue. There are security lights located all around the club house that light with little movement. Furthermore, most people appreciate the darkness in order to sleep. I have visited other campground that are equally as dark, if not darker. Personally, I enjoy seeing the stars at night. I also noticed that the individual said there were no shade tree sites. You gotta be kidding me. One of the draws of this locale is the fact that there are sites canopied by oak trees that are over a 100 years old. I'm tellin' ya folks, you will find few places in this world that make you feel like family.
We stayed at Nova Campground during Biketoberfest so there has to be some concessions made on behalf of the number of people at the campground. Even with that number of people the campground seemed to be well run, the bathrooms were maintained (we always had TP!!)and the staff was courteous.
Perdido Bay KOA is located on beautiful Perdido Bay, has a wonderful fishing pier, pool, hot tub and club house. All in all it's a pleasant place to stay however the bathrooms and showers are in need of updating as mold was found in the showers. The staff was pleasant enough and on site propane fill ups were a convenience.
Pensacola RV Park is a spacious, attractive, high end park nestled amongst large oaks and with beautiful landscaping. We have seen many RVs come and go with many expressing a sadness upon departure. The solitude and sounds of wildlife are relaxing. We have found a camaraderie here that we have not found at other cookie cutter campgrounds. We are proud to call this home. The first post concerning Pensacola RV Park should be taken with a grain of salt. We have been camping here for over a month and find Pensacola RV Park to be a wonderful refuge managed by individuals that care not only about the park but also about the folks camping in the park. Pensacola RV Park should not be penalized because there are rude people out there that do not tend to their pets. The owners are aware of pet issues and are pro active in addressing this issue. Overall, Pensacola RV Park is a great place to stay with new, well maintained facilities, spacious sites to accommodate the largest of motorhomes and a management staff that is attentive. I seriously doubt that you will find a better maintained campground or better owners.
