A very popular campground, that offers a great location for visiting the Pensacola area. Sites 46 - 51 are considered water view sites (although most of the view is blocked by trees) and are reservable for a maximum of 14 days. Sites 1 - 45 are reservable for a maxium of 90 days. Although the sites are close to each other, there is still plenty of room to make yourself home. Each site offers FHU. Campground is big rig and pet friendly. There are a few pull through sites; although, most are back-in. Even if you don't have a water view site, the beach is only a short walk from anywhere within the campground. Swimming is not allowed a the campground beach; however, swimming is allowed at another beach a short drive away. Free Cable TV and WIFI are avaialble. Both worked well, with only occasional slow periods with WIFI. Campground was clean and well maintained. Includes recreation room, laundry, and bath house. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Museum of Naval Aviation is a must see for viewing aviation history from WWI through today! There are more than 150 restored aircraft! Tallest active lighthouse in Florida is just a short walk from the campground! Pensacola Lighthouse is open for tours daily. On Wednesdays you can watch the Blue Angels practice.

We stayed a week here on spot 50, which is one of the 6 "premium" sites that are the closest to the beach. The pad was recent concrete and level. All hook-ups worked except the cable TV. The camp host said I was the first to report a problem with it. We stayed too busy too watch it anyway. The premium sites are terribly hot with little shade and a summer sun that tracks over in a way that your awning doesn't do much good.

The interior roads are very rough, even to walk on. The path and boardwalk to the beach is short and well maintained. The beach is the same beautiful white sand that is out on the Gulf Beach fronts. The water in the sound can be dingy and trashy after big rains, and during our stay it was badly stained with tannin acid from pine forest run-off.

The camp host was excellent. The facilities great. It is a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk to the Naval Aviation Museum. The major complaint by all campers here is that no swimming is allowed because there is no lifeguard. This is totally idiotic. Consequently we spent most of our beach time on Santa Rosa Island across the Sound and a 20 minute drive out the west gate.

During the week I grew tired of the Navy rules requiring ID cards flashed every way you turn, boat and equipment rental rules that required turn-in at 3pm and the perpetual "No Pets" and "No Swimming" signs posted everywhere. (Your dog is allowed in the camp ground.) We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Love this place! One of the nicest military RV parks we've stayed in. We got a shaded site this time. Our son lives in the area and this is our go to place to stay when we visit. Staff is friendly, place is clean, and the location can't be beat! We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

We had a water front site, with a short trail that led to a beach with a great view of Pensacola Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Dogs are allowed on the beach; however, there is no swimming. The site had a level concrete pad. Lots of trees and shade. Great bike riding/walking/running trails adjacent to the campground. You can take a short walk to the Naval Aviation Museum (a must see) and the Pensacola Lighthouse. Lots of beach to walk on with the sugar white sand of the area. A very popular campground. Excellent laundry and bathroom. A great place! We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) Travel Trailer. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

This RV park is centrally located, a couple miles inside the back gate of the Naval Air Station. It has full hook-ups with huge concrete pads. It uses the Navy's "Go Wifi" system which is free if you quality. Many of the people who were in the park were regulars who spend time every year at this park. On one of the Saturday nights I was there, they had a pot luck dinner; thirty people showed up. Laundry facilities were excellent. There is a beautiful beach 75 yards from the campground. Reservations are strongly recommended; the camp stays full. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

We had a wonderful site that was next to a trail to the ocean with just the ocean behind us. The site had a concrete pad. There were lots of trees which caused us to have to extend out cable to get the satellite dish to work. Great walking/running trail right across the street from the park. Can walk to the Naval museum and the lighthouse. Lots of beach to walk on with the sugar white sand of the area. Easy to get in and out of the park. Be sure to make reservations because they are very popular. Good laundry and bathroom. A wonderful place! We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Looks like a great park! I say 'looks like' because we spent most of our two days there either inside our RV or at the Naval Air Museum thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Patricia that had 40+mph sustained winds and seriously heavy rains. We drove around the facility on our way to the NEX/Commissary a few miles away at Corry Field (Deb at the office gave us a map and helped us with extending our reservation an extra night). I'll agree with the other reviewers comments regarding poor signage - especially at night and in the rain! That said, once you have an idea where you are going (or have a good GPS app) you can get around easily. We arrived at the main gate as the back gate is only open limited hours. We didn't use the facilities due to the weather, but they looked good from a distance. Utilities worked fine, although we did lose power at the museum for an hour during the storm (uncertain if it affected the campground, but probably did), water pressure was fine as was the cable TV service (to windy for me to put out our Dish). We certainly look forward to coming back, just keep in mind you can't reason with hurricane season. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Been here many times and were pleasantly surprised by the new wifi. Installation was not yet complete (had cable above ground to each campsite) but it worked great! The Navy on the East Coast has solved the wifi issue and finally installed some thing that works and works well! We stayed in a motor home and look forward to our next visit. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

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 FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

This is our 2nd year staying at NAS Pensacola and we love it. Our site was located right next to the dunes and path to the beach. Concrete pads and full hook ups are just right. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The facilities are very well maintained. Dog friendly beach and ours stayed in the water as much as she could. Historic lighthouse is a short walk or bike ride and a little further is one of the best aviation museums in the country. You must be active duty, retired military or DOD civilian to visit and use the facilities, but it is one of our favorite campgrounds. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
