Pensacola is home to many things to see and do. It features white beaches, and is known for its stunning sunsets. Pensacola is the home to the Navy’s Blue Angels, the flight demonstration squadron for the United States Navy. There are also two Navy sponsored campgrounds in the Pensacola region, managed by the Moral, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) office of the Navy. These are comfortable, easy to access vacation opportunities for families that want to try something different.
Pensacola Naval Air Station Oak Grove Park, and Corry Station Blue Angel Navy Recreation Area are the two campgrounds, which provide rest and recreation for those that wish to travel to Pensacola and try camping. There are different camping opportunities available; some of them are located in the trees along the beach of the Intra-Costal waterway.
The campground at Oak Park features camper sites for the Recreational Vehicle, including some with full sewer, water, and electrical hookups. There are some other sites including basic tent sites that are located under Oak trees located directly on the beach. The Oak Park campground also offers cable television hookup, a customer laundry and bathhouse. We get a lot of snowbirds from up north, they came early this year, said Campground Hosts Dave and Sybil Jones.
The Campground at Oak Park hosts visitors from around the world, but this year residents of Vermont, Washington State, and other locations from around New England have been visitors. When the weather is colder in the north, the activity in camping in Florida increases. Oak Park Campground is located close to the National Museum of Naval Aviation, and cottages are available for rent at the campground from $85 dollars to just over $100 dollars a day.
The other campground for military use in Pensacola is located on Perdido Bay. The Navy Blue Angel Recreation area has camping with electricity and water hookups. You can find various accommodations from rough primitive tent sites to RV hookups for those who seek more plush accommodations.
