This is a Navy recreation park that is available to military and Department of Defense civilians, both active and retired. Located on Perdido Bay in Northwest Florida, it is a deactivated seaplane base that has been turned into a many-faceted recreation center. Within easy driving distance for Pensacola, stores, and restaurants. It's about a 30 minute drive from Interstate 10.
They have two different areas for camping, Battleship Row, and Anchor Cove. Battleship Row has full hook-ups, including sewer tap; concrete pads with 50 amp service; and large, open sites that are convenient for larger RVs. Anchor Cove is unpaved, 30 amp power, heavily shaded, and has a dump station. Anchor Cove is immediately on the water while Battleship Row is within easy walking distance of the beaches.
We always stay in Anchor Cove and try for a waterfront site, at $14.50 a night it's a real bargain and the location couldn't be better. Every site has water and electricity, a picnic table, and a fire ring. The bath house is very nice; it is air conditioned and every room is private and with a shower - four for women and four for men.
The park has rustic cabins and trailers for rent, sailboats for rent, boat launching ramp, miniature golf, an RV/boat storage facility, and an 18 hole disc golf course. They also have an area set aside for scouts, which can accommodate over 600 scouts at a time.
While we were there this weekend, a U-Haul
pulled in next to us! We'd never even seen one before. It looked like our EggCamper
had had a baby!
