I wish I could review the park beach area separate from the park. The park is fairly new and it's really wonderful. The sites are all concrete and level. The spots are also very deep. Our 36' with Jeep in tow fit without the Jeep sticking out in the road. They're a little close together but not any different from any other beach park that I've been to. It's on the bay side but there's public beach access to the gulf side that's only a few yards from the park. The choice of restaurants and shopping within walking distance from the park is HUGE. You have no less that 15 places to eat that are less than 1/8 of a mile. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the park was spotless. They have a small pool and the entire area under the club house is for customer use with a large gas BBQ pit and picnic tables. The ONLY negative is the beach for the resort. It's full of shells and rocks. When I mean full you really need shoes or flops to walk in the sand. The water's edge is lined with large limestones with only three small wooden walkways to access the water which also has limestone boulders near the shore. With two small kids this beach area was totally useless. They have businesses a few hundred yards to the west that have nice sandy beaches that you can walk right into the water. It's really a shame because the park has a GREAT view of the bay. If they'd haul in some CLEAN sand, remove the boulders, and make a usable beach this place would be a 10+. But even with the beach in the condition it's in we have stayed here twice and will definitely be back again. Oh also all the palms and landscaping are new so not much shade to speak of. Your rig will be in full sun for the entire day. We camped at Pensacola Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Let me clarify...if you want camping that's quiet with lots of trees and outdoors this place in NOT FOR YOU! However if you want a place where adults can relax as well as the kids, this place is great. They have several pools with the kids' pool having a walk-in side that's great for very small children. Lots of slides and water features for kids to entertain themselves in the kid pool as well. They have a larger pool that has a section that's roped off from children with a swim up bar for adults. You check in and everyone gets a wrist band which is great for getting food and drinks and not having to worry about carrying around a wallet or money. The sites are level and not too close. Also they have several spots that can accommodate multiple family campers. The sites are set up so the campers face each other which is great for multiple family trips. They also have several sites that are completely covered by a metal roof which offers lots of shade and also protection from afternoon thunderstorms that may otherwise ruin outside cooking. Now there's one thing the park is also known for. It's the golf cart cruisers. Not sure why but it's a "thing" for people to cruise around if golf carts and show off their creative LED lighting and amped up sound systems. It doesn't bother me at all but I know this really annoys other campers so be warned. However the park does enforce a quiet time that all the cruisers have to quit the parade. Oh also they don't allow bike riding after dark due to the heavy golf cart traffic. If you don't mind a little partying in the campground this place is really great!! If you're looking to relax to the sounds of nature and peace and quiet, you'll be disappointed. We camped at Cajun Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.
The restaurant at the entrance delivers to the park. The food is excellent and the prices are inline with any other seafood restaurant.

This park was great. It's new so the landscape is not mature, which means no real shade from trees. The only negative is the sand on the small beach on the bay is full of shells and the waters edge is bordered with large stones for erosion. They have two walk overs to get to the water but the water also has large stones making walking in the water not that great. Other than that this park was wonderful. Access to gulf side was easy with public boardwalk. Walking distance to everything!! We camped at Pensacola Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.
