Default Pensacola Beach RV Resort

I just made reservations for June at Pensacola Beach Rv Resort. It looks very nice. You have the bay on one side and the Gulf on the other. They have a pool and beach on the bay side. Fishing is good in the bay. Restaurants , bars and shops are within walking distance. Trolly service stops at campground.

We stayed there last Sept. Going back in a few months. Be sure and go just down the street to the Native Cafe and eat. If you go for breakfast they open at 7:30 and there is a line before they open.

Most of your beachside resorts are tight. I like the fact that you won’t need to drive after arriving if you don’t want to. They have golf cart service to local restaurants and bars. Trolley service in to town.

I don't care about tight when I go to the beach. My favorite weekend getaway is Jekyll island and you can hear other peoples conversation if you listen.
Don't care there for some reason


Have a great time Ringer!

Most of the campgrounds in beach towns are like that. The state parks are more woodsy. Also more mosquitoes.
We used to go to Myrtle Beach and the sites are small and on top of each other. It's the price you pay for the action.

I had a coworker who went to the one in Pensacola. He liked it. I would like being able to walk or ride the golf carts everywhere and not take the car.

I'd rather go in June than July or August. I would think the bay side might be less windy if a storm comes up. Sometimes the wind can make beach side camping rough.
I love the sunsets on the panhandle.

Man, I'd sure hate to camp next to that pool. I don't like being real close to the bath house either.

Yeah you can see how many kids are in it before you go.
Oh wait, that's not what you were talking about.

One trip we were next to the bath house at Table Rock SP. The doors had the loudest closures on them I've ever heard. They didn't just slam shut but bounced back and forth about 5 times every time someone went in or out.

I like to be close but not that close.

Now that sounds interesting. After a full day on the beach I am not usually in the best of driving condition. The trolleys and carts would be nice!
