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.

Very nice concert pads, good WiFi, We were unable to get a clear satellite shot and although their were open sites was not allowed to move to a better site. Beach is very close but there a sign no swimming. We stayed three day. Blue Angles were having practice show when we were their. 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.

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.

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.

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 FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Each site has concrete slab 20x40, picnic table, W/E/S. Nice heated bathhouse, laundry facilities, small clubhouse with fireplace. Sites very close together, has the RV park feel. No foliage between sites, no privacy from neighbors. No fires, but you can bring your own grill to cook. Park has horseshoes, beach very close by, just over the dunes, in December was too cold to swim or enjoy. No playground for children, this is a retiree park. We were here to spend Christmas with family but our child was really bored at this park. Blue Angels take this week off but normally they fly practices and I was told several times by people in the park how noisy it was. I would have loved to hear it, how exciting to see parts of their new shows. Lighthouse, Fort Barrancas nearby as well as the Naval Air Museum. Stores close by back gate. Park also has cabins for rental for those not RV or tent camping. We hada 35ft 5ver at the time and it was very hard to get into site #1 because people would park behind their rigs instead of in front, making the road extra narrow. We almost scraped a tree to get into our site. We would go back but would get a back-in site away from the circle and clubhouse. We camped at Oak Grove Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
