Florida - Pensacola, Gulf Islands National Seashore - Fort Pickens Campground / by Dave Hileman

A very nice place to stay. You are a very short walk to either the bay or the Gulf side, wide white, soft sand beaches, lots of neat birds, hiking, presumably fishing as well, and water and electric at each site. Restrooms looked newish, there was some shade (none on our spot) and three or four loops of sites. The days we were here were cold and rainy. We reserved about 2 months ago and there were not too many spots left when we did. Place seemed full each night. We were here for three nights, I think. Under $30 a night for a peaceful and beautiful location is hard to beat. We would go back and in fact might be making plans to do so. Don't neglect seeing the old fort on the island and the Naval Air Museum on the mainland, excellent.
