Reserved five nights at Ft Pickens after going online and seeing the picture of the site and, trust me, the picture online is nothing like what we had. There showed shade trees in the picture, and we were sitting in the blazing sun. The pads to park on were so short we had to detach our camper and turn it sideways and then park next to it sideways, as they give you an information sheet to make sure you park on the pavement. When I registered online, I told them the length of our camper and considering you have to pull it with your vehicle, the website should have come back and said the site was not suitable for what I had, but this did not happen. The park has a general store with a small laundromat attached, and when we tried to get quarters at the store to do laundry, they had none! Looks like if you ran a park with this many campers and you had a laundromat that only takes quarters, then you might want to stockpile a few rolls of quarters. We wound up driving ten minutes to a store outside the park just for quarters to do a load of laundry. Then there are the bathrooms and showers. They were in poor shape, needing paint and general updating. There was an exhaust fan in the one we primarily used but it was covered with what appeared several inches of dust and debris. They were so steamed up that using them was miserable. One set of the bathrooms there had been remodeled but was not near us and I was told by another camper, they failed to install vents in the showers and had to rework them. I stayed there, as my daughter is in the Navy at Pensacola but will have to be desperate to stay there again. Will look for another park. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Travel Trailer.

After several phone calls, found out the campground will be closed for the next two years due to hurricane damage. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Travel Trailer.
