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.

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.

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 FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) 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 FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

In my opinion, this is the best place to camp on the whole gulf coast. Unfortunately, it's only available to military and civilian government workers. This place is awesome. Just a stone-throw from the beach. The beach is very private. Water is crystal clear and the sand is sugar white. Walmart is very close and restaurants are near-by. This is by-far our favorite place to go camping. Wi-Fi, pool and BBQ pits at each site would make it 10. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.
