We are now staying at the Gulf Islands National Seashore in the Fort Pickens Campground. For a complete review of the campground click here and go to my RV Park review blog.
The Fort Pickens Campground is located on Santa Rosa Island, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico! There are so many fun things to see & do here not to mention the beautiful beach not even 1/4 of a mile from our campsite. You can go to Historic downtown Pensacola, the Pensacola Naval Air Station and Naval Aviation Museum, the Pensacola Lighthouse and other historic sites. Campsites are within 1/4 mile of the beaches of the "Emerald Coast" of the Gulf of Mexico and Pensacola Bay.
The Fort Pickens area is South of Pensacola and Gulf Breeze, Florida. It offers many activities, from touring historic Fort Pickens to enjoying the unique white sand beaches of Northwest Florida. Fort Pickens and the Visitor Center are located one mile away from the campground.
It is said that these are the whitest beaches in the world and they are surely the whitest I've ever seen. And the reason it is called the Emerald Coast is because when the sun is up high and shinning on the water you will see the most beautiful shades of green... There is a lot to do her Swimming, Birdwatching, Trails, The fort and many activities put on by the rangers.
For beautiful sunsets and relaxing in the Florida sun this is definitely the place to come!
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
