FHU sites with spacious cement slabs. We took one of the few open sites not under the numerous live oak trees which allowed us to use our rooftop satellite. They do have cable TV hook up lines. There is no WiFi unless you want to pay extra ($4.00/day and $14/week). Our cell phone hot spot worked but very poorly. The campground is close to the back gate, Blue Angel Parkway, open weekdays 5AM – 9PM; weekends 8AM – 6PM. Close by the flight line is a NEX fuel stop that pumps diesel (not bio-diesel ) plus regular gas. You can walk to the white sand beach or the Naval Aviation Museum (very impressive) from the campground. In addition to the BX and commissary there is a Subway, Panda Express, and pizza/calzone shop near the schools barracks. There is also the Old Navy Yard Eatery beside the library with daily specials at a reasonable price. The AC Read golf course (3 – 9 hole segments) and the 18 hole Par 60 course (The Oaks) is available to walk or ride. All are in playable shape. If you reserve early enough you can stay for three months but you then have to leave for a couple of weeks. They only take reservations on M-F. Call the camp host on Sat-Sun. There are plenty of chances to hear/see planes overhead as this is an active naval air station. There is poor signage for the turn into the campground. Their larger BX/Commissary is located off base. We would certainly use this campground when in the Florida panhandle area. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Awesome park! We've stayed there at least 20 times. People are very friendly. Super easy access to the beach. Showers/rest rooms were clean. Plenty of dumpsters. Lots of see and do. I wish they allowed small fires in fire pits but otherwise, I couldn't ask for anything more. I continue to come back there. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a fairly nice campground, but it is full of snowbirds. There are only about six sites available for short term stays and those will require a reservation if you want to insure getting one of them. Interior road is mainly crushed shell and the pads are level concrete. Decent space between most sites with some grassy area. There are quite a few trees so getting satellite signals may be a problem. They have cable, but the channels are limited. Utilities worked well. VZW cell was good. Wi-Fi is just OK and it is not free. There is a small rec/meeting building on site. Pay for use laundry and bath house facilities were clean, but they aren't adequate for the number of RV sites. Since there isn’t any playground equipment, or anything else for the kids, I wouldn't call the park “family friendly.” The CG is easy access to the beach area. The nearby light house and aviation museum are well worth a tour. The commissary is not on this base. You have to go to Corry Station Navy Base, about a 20 minute drive, for that. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

This park is not without its good points: level concrete pads, mature trees, clean bathrooms/showers, and area attractions (National Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola Lighthouse, & Fort Barrancas). However, their many rules take much of the fun out of camping. There are no fire rings at the RV sites, only in the tent camping areas. They have overly restrictive rules regarding fire and I couldn't even use Tiki Torches. There is a nice beach within walking distance (although you can't really see if from the RV park); however, they recently posted it as no swimming. Now to swim you have to drive to the beach a few miles away, which defeats the purpose of having a beach at the RV park. The sites are also much too close together and oddly placed. It also needs a playground for the kids. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

We like it here. It has nice clean bathrooms and a great laundry. Most if not all campsites are on a concrete pad, some are near the beach. The front office is very helpful and accommodating. It is a very nice place to spend a few days. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground. Office staff very helpful on phone saying that they would make reservations for us. Camp host handled us when we arrived after office hours (very nice and helpful lady). Beautiful scenery; waterfront/beach area just a short walk from our site #45. Will even allow dogs on the beach. You clean up behind them of course Beautiful sunset. We were only here for one night passing through but we have put this down as a place to come and stay awhile.

This was our third time to stay here, and it is always clean, well managed, and friendly. The laundry is the cheapest ever, with efficient and new equipment, and we have stayed twice in the "overflow" area, which is actually quieter and more private than the main campground. The Blue Angels are a treat that can be seen even if you choose not to get up and drive over for the full runway show. And love the free museum! This is a great bargain for military families, and we will continue to stay when available and in Pensacola. Great facilities and great people! We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice facility-clean and well kept. Laundry very reasonable. We had a back in space on a concrete pad with ample room between adjoining spaces (pads). Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this park, although it is a little pricey for a military park. We paid extra for a water view and Wi-Fi is extra through a separate company, $8 per day. The location is fantastic, across the street from the Naval Air Museum. There is good bicycle riding here and much shade. They accept reservations here, which many military parks do not. We will use this park again. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in site #11. It was shady, had a concrete slab, picnic table and FHU with cable. We backed up to the road so there was more noise than if you are closer to the beach. The clubhouse has been renovated and heat and air added with new windows since our last visit. We were in town for the Blue Angels Homecoming show so did not spend much time in park. We did receive a notice of a potluck on Saturday night by some of the residents. The beach is close by and now there is a boardwalk to cross the dunes. PNS Lighthouse is a short walk on path or by the beach. Air Museum down the street; new section just opened. Roads are dusty in park from the limestone gravel. No fires allowed. Cable was really fuzzy and did not get many channels. Park has wi-fi for $8 day. Central location to what we needed for this trip, and it was fun to see all the planes fly in the day before the show. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

As others have said in previous reviews, this is a great camp ground. Not to crowded with many trees and next to a white sand beach. Very convenient to the excellent Naval Aviation Museum, etc. Take a drive across the bay and see Ft. Pickens and a Natl. Sea Shore. Excellent cable TV with many channels. Wi-Fi: it's Florida so pay to outside commercial service. I used Verizon Mi-Fi (air card) with good connection. A few sites, backing up to beach, available for 14 day max stay and the rest get reserved by snow birds. Reservations taken. Excellent if you can get in. "Access (GPS may take you in circles): from the west, use SR 292 to Blue Angel Pkwy / SR 173. However, this gate closes around 21:00 on week days on 18:00 on weekends. In this cases, and from the north and east, use the main gate on Navy Blvd. SR 30 / 295." We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Great Navy Campground. WiFi is extra, which is a shame. The AT&T 3G was great though. The sites are level concrete. The camp host was great. There is plenty to do including the National Museum of Naval Aviation (it's free). We would definitely stay again. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice, well-maintained campground with a very nice staff. It is in an excellent location, looking out the mouth of Pensacola Bay into the Gulf, and about 10-12 minutes by car from downtown Pensacola. The sites are all wide concrete pads and are easy to get into. The shower house is as clean as any we've been in, but it could use some towel hooks by the sinks. This is one of the few places anywhere that dogs are allowed on the beach. All the campground asks is that you keep your pup on a leash and clean up after them. In the bonus department: the campground is 0.6 mile from the Naval aviation museum, and a bit farther is the lighthouse and Fort Barancas. If you're at the NAS at the right times of the year, the Blue Angels practice Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and visitors are welcome in the bleachers behind the museum. Even though the campground is just south of the west end of the runway, the jet noise is not bad. Most of us who can camp on a military installation like that kind of noise anyway. Our site was close to Radford Rd, one of the major roads into the NAS, so we noticed a bit of traffic noise in our hybrid TT. If possible ask for one of the sites farther from the road. We definitely plan on staying here again. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

We have spent the winter here for the past two years and love the park. It has close access to the beach and all of the upper gulf region. There is a great camp host this year that sponsored a lot of activities during the holidays. This is a nice location and reasonable rates for the area. We will be back.
