This was an incredible RV facility; however there were issues that I feel should be mentioned. Location is incredible. We were able to walk everywhere; restaurants, bars, shopping, the boardwalk area, and a short walk across the street to the beach. The free trolley from 4 PM to midnight has a stop directly in front of the park and was convenient and easy to use. The park was easy to get to and we did not have any problems navigating our 33 foot fifth wheel into the facility or our site. This park is not on the beach side but on the bay side. It does have a sandy beach, but a rocky bulk head between the sand and the water. Also the water in the sound is not pristine and most of the time while we were there had a fishy smell. There was a step pier and a kayak slot to easily enter the water. The actual sites were pristine concrete sites. Our premium site was perfectly level and had 2 very nice pedestals. This way you had a pedestal on the correct side whether backed in or pulled in forward. The water, electricity and sewer connections were very convenient and easy to use. Cable TV is available with plenty of channels to choose from. However; if you have one of the deluxe sites on the inside of the loop, be aware that the pedestals are on the wrong side if backed in with a fifth wheel or TT. This puts the entry door opening to the neighbor’s pedestal and their electrical/water connections running through your site or beneath your picnic table. The 2 bath rooms that they had were also pristine. Very large, extremely clean and well equipped. However; they only had 2 for the entire park. And these 2 bath rooms were also located next to the pool so they were also the only bath room facility for the people using the pool. The pool was very small, but it was very nice and refreshing. There were 4 or 5 tables with umbrellas and plenty of chairs and lounges. However; the park staff was apparently neglecting their pool maintenance duties and a city inspector surprised them while we were there and promptly closed the pool due to inadequate pool chemicals. The pool was then closed for almost 2 full days. Cable TV was completely out for one evening, and the ice machine only worked about 20% of the time we were there. The staff at the park was very nice and seem willing to accommodate; however when I approached them with my issues (mainly the pool being closed) they just blew me off. Although this park has some issues as far as I am concerned, and their prices are extreme, I do consider this a very nice park, and we had a great vacation. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV park has great access to of Pensacola Beach. The only complaint (and it was a big one) was WiFi being virtually unavailable at your RV site. We had to visit the office area each time we wanted to check something on the internet. This was very annoying! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I really enjoyed my 6 week stay at this RV park. The Premium spots are on the bay (actually the inter-coastal waterway) and not ocean-front. But that is OK and especially after the addition of the steps on the bay in front of spot 22 really was needed and is very nice. I found the park to be quiet and peaceful most especially thru the week days. Weekends became more hectic but that's to be expected. It's a short walk to bars & restaurants and reasonably easy access to the Gulf beach. I do have some input or suggestions. 1. Parking pull-in and back-in units next to each other on the Premium spots needs to be changed. Move the back-in campers to the West side would resolve this situation of having "uninvited" guests in the middle of one's camp "private" area. 2. You need to fix your ice machine so that it accepts coins. Ridiculous to not have that fixed. Minor issue. 3. The sand next to the bay needs to be raked to get rid of things like GLASS, concrete, shells, asphalt, etc. Myself and others cut our feet walking across it to get to the water including young children. Very dangerous as it is now. It's a cause for a lawsuit waiting to happen. 4. The Wi-Fi in the West side Premium sites did NOT work for the first 4 weeks I was there. It finally started working intermittently the last week but still was not reliable. I reported this problem to park management. via 6 different phone calls and multiple times face-to-face. They either fix it or quit advertising that they have it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped right on the water. A little misleading since it's actually NOT on the Gulf of Mexico side, it's on the sound side so although you're right on the water, it's not RIGHT on the beach. Really small park with a dog walking area that's about 10 feet by 8 feet. Literally. And no fence, just a sign and a couple of posts with steel cable around it. I loved the proximity to the actual beach, dining, etc. The only thing that was a hassle was that there was nowhere close by to do grocery shopping of any kind. You will either want to bring a toad, or stop for groceries on the way in. The narrow bridge (super windy) isn't exactly where you want to bicycle or moped into town. Typical touristy restaurants very close by so you get a little bit of live music noise, but with the wind you don't hear it that much. Very relaxing place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very hard park to rate. The rates are alot higher than other parks in the area and the advertised "beach" area is nothing more than some junky sand leading up to a rock wall on the sound side. This RV park is not on the ocean like you are led to believe it is and there's no way to swim in the water without first going off a short dock. The rock wall makes it impossible to enjoy the water and I was disappointed that to kayak, I had to drag my kayak over to the dock and then do some fancy balancing to get in and out of it from the wood dock. The price is a big one. This place easily charges double for a monthly rate and so much more than that for weekly and nightly rates than other RV parks in the area. When I arrived, I specifically asked if we could get a partial refund if we have to leave early. The nature of our work often only gives us 48 hours to pick up and get to another area. I was assured that the owner would work with us but when the situation arose, I made several phone calls and kept getting the run-around that the manager wasn't in that day to take care of it. Another issue is the extremely loud bands and bars surrounding the park. On one hand its nice that you can walk to restaurants and shops nearby but the amount of noise you deal with several nights a week until the wee hours of the morning make the location a negative one. We paid extra for a waterfront site (thinking that we were on the ocean and had direct access for our kayaks) and we found that the concrete pads were setup for motorhomes and not so much for fifth-wheels and trailers. The small pad poured for where a door on a fifth-wheel or trailer would land was separated by a foot from the main pad the RV is parked on. So I rolled my ankle several times coming out the door and slipping off the parking pad, into the grass between the parking pad and picnic pad. But for the pad that's situated for a motorhome, they put some nice stone blocks in between this gap. Why hasn't that been done here? 2 shower/bathrooms for this park mean that you can never get into one. I tried a few times and they were either both in use, or one was in use and the other was closed for maintenance. I never did get to see if they were clean, etc. Overall, its a pretty park and the proximity to the beach is nice but I wouldn't stay here again. I would rather be down a littler further out at Navarre beach and pay half as much, not have noisy weekends and be able to walk from sand into water. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice facilities, level concrete pads. Wi-Fi did not work well unless you were in the office area. Only two showers for the entire park, people always waiting for an open one. Walk to beaches & restaurants, but the noise from the bands until 2 am (or later) on Thurs-Sat was tough to handle. We stayed a month, wished we hadn't committed to that length before knowing about the loud music. Lots of locals come to camp & party on weekends too. Will try somewhere else next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, new park on Santa Rosa Sound. Sites by the street are noisy from beach traffic. Wi-Fi is very slow. Location is great, walk to restaurants, bars and beach activities. Rates are high but it is in a vacation hotspot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is on Pensacola Beach, the inland side, and not on the gulf. It is new and clean. Quiet at waterfront sites. You can walk to the beach, restaurants, etc. Small kids' playground. It is next to big Ferris wheel. High prices and higher during holiday periods. We camped here in a Motorhome.
