This was a nice park (especially if you have bikes and are interested in water sports or have children). The sites are small, but private and very quiet. The showers in our loop weren't working but the others were near by. There are nice bridges and walkways out near the water and we were able to view an alligator over one of the bridges. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

Always enjoy coming to this park but I have noticed that there are fewer sites available for our 40' motorhome and when I questioned the staff about it I learned that the park manager has decided to change the length of RV permitted in each site because he seems to think that will prevent folks from overhanging their site. I have found that no matter how small the RV or tent some folks always overhang their site into the roadway so now many people will find limited spaces when attempting to book a site at this park even though the site is capable of handling their rig. Sites formerly capable of accommodating our rig (since we've already stayed in them) are now not listed as large enough which I think is sad since it will limit our ability to reserve a site in the future. Park amenities are very nice, rest rooms/showers well maintained and pavilions are wonderful. Rate is Florida senior rate. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is doing a great job for the public. The welcoming staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was spacious and also afforded some privacy. The Lagoon is beautiful, and the park supplies all kinds of boats and life jackets for rent. They even offer binoculars on loan for bird watching. The showers and restrooms were modern, clean, and comfortable. There is an observation tower from which you can see the Lagoon and Pensacola Bay. We would return here if we were in the area. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is not up to the standard that we have so far experienced in the Florida State Park system. Many of the sites were flooded (OK, there was a recent rain, but not a major one). Our site was so narrow, we could not put out our patio mat. To stay out of the standing water in the rear, I had to stay front too far to fit our car, so had to back that into the weeds. I also had to use blocks under the wheels and jacks to get level. It's not a "bad" park, just not as nice as the previous State Parks we have been to. It's also a lot smaller, so that may have something to do with it. There are nicer (and also worse) sites here. With a more knowledgeable pick of sites, this would be a nice, quiet, and out of the way park to stay. Good bike riding around the park roads. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

Great SP. I guess a somewhat older park designed to accommodate RVs smaller than today's monsters. The site we were given required some vehicular gymnastics, but we stuffed in & once there had adequate room. Enjoyed the boardwalks & took in a few sights of the area. The Naval Air Station museum is a must see & exceeded expectations. Spent most of a day there. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Florida Senior Rate. The sites were fairly level, but mostly sand & shell. The water quality was great, as was the electric hook-up. There is a nice boardwalk through the lagoon area. The rest rooms were clean, but had stair access from certain parts of the campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park near Pensacola and Perdido Key. Check in was easy; we were able to drive through to pick our site. Fairly level sites, close together with scrub brush vegetation between them. Great hikes nearby, access to lagoon and ocean near, lots of area restaurants and shopping in Pensacola. Bathhouses were older, but were cleaned daily. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Thursday, February 28 - Big Lagoon State Park, Pensacola, Florida This is the last state park on the Panhandle before one enters AL. This park has 75 campsites with water and electricity, fire rings and picnic tables. One can swim, fish, boat, crabbing and hike in this park on 678 acres. Depending on the season there are guided walks, campfire programs and recreational skills programs. There are over five miles of hiking and nature trails that take you on roads, boardwalks, sand bars and marshes. There is an observation tower to view the park, the Intracoastal Waterway, Gulf Islands National Seashore and Perdido Key. This is the beginning of the Great Florida Birding Trail. Some sites are on cement and others on hard pack dirt and sand. Many campers were staying for an overnight but others stayed for one week or more. It did feel like it was Florida in its natural state except for seeing litter on some of the hiking trails and marshes. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground with a couple of hiking trails. We had a concrete pad at our site. Restroom/showers are very good and warm. It was quiet and peaceful on a winter's night... We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

This was an really nice campground. This was our first camping experience in the panhandle. The campsite was clean and easy to get into, and we have a 36 ft. travel trailer. It is a typical state park campground which is woodsy and plenty of surrounding vegitation. Our site, 50, did not have any trees, but a lot of foliage which acted as a buffer from the other sites. We enjoyed the wildlife in the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed there for 7 nights. Not the Hilton of campgrounds, but very friendly and quiet. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Truck Camper.

A nice FL state park, with sites well separated by bushes and dunes. Access to some is a challenge for longer rigs like our 30' Airstream with the long Henlsey hitch and big truck. We wiggled in and were delighted by the trail to the beach. We moved here after the Canopener at Topsail, so it was a marked contrast, of course. I'd come back to be close to the Naval Air Museum. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice state park with very clean, well maintained amenities. Example: the beachfront pavilions and rest rooms are all in very good condition and reflect the care given them. Wonderful waterfront views out over the Big Lagoon, scenic nature trails etc. Price reflects senior discount, we stayed 8 nights and would definitely return. Some sites are very sandy but that's Florida. Staff is excellent and went out of their way to assist in all areas. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this place! Close to the ocean. Close to Pensacola. Close to the Naval air base where the Blue Angels call home. We saw them do one of their weekly shows for people that come to the base. Awesome! We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park near Naval Air Museum. Sites are compacted sand with some space between most sites. Park staff very friendly and know the area. Great boardwalk to beach area. Great bird watching. Will come back here without a doubt. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
