Oak Grove Park and Cottages New Hot
Nov 13-15, 2017
We spent three days/two nights at this campground. It was our first time. We loved this place! Imagine getting up and watching the sunrise on the sand with a cup of coffee or watching a spectacular sunset over the ocean. The access path to the sand was one campsite away from ours. The campground pluses included cleanliness of the sites and bathrooms; space of and between the sites; ease of hook-up for electric, water and sewage; and the professionalism and friendliness of the staff even when dealing with unreasonable campers (as we observed first hand while waiting to register). Don't expect to show up without a reservation for this military campground (or many others) and find a space for more than one night. Plan ahead! We made our reservations early enough that we were able to secure a site by the water. The campground needs to improve WiFi access. Having to use a computer in the community room is not acceptable. It was not accessible from our site even with a WiFi Ranger signal amplifier that we have installed in our trailer. We had to use our Smartphone as a hot spot. My recommendation is to install better WiFi in the campground so people can access email, websites, and, for some of us, work. As for activities, there is a community center for folks to get together and meet other campers. There is an air museum on site as well and a beautiful lighthouse. The NAS has the usual amenities as most other bases. The Pensacola area around this base has many restaurants, shops, and other attractions for both adults and kids. This is a campground that I would return to time and time again.
