Our second stay to visit our daughter who is in training here. Weather a bit cooler but one of our favorite campgrounds. This time with fall temps the water is nearly crystal clear, such a change from the summer brown. Camp hostess Deb came to our rescue and recommended Blue Angel Tire and Automotive out the back gate for us. We needed some repairs on the RV and they took us right in on a Monday morning. Doesn't get any better than that. Such a pleasure to have a laundry where all the machines are in working order and a change machine. Rest rooms are kept clean too. We camped in a 32' motorhome with tow dolly and car.

First time staying at Oak Grove and it won't be our last. Sites are a bit tight, but the bathroom and laundry facilities are very good and cleaned twice a day. The staff and Camp host's Frank and Deb were awesome to meet and work with. Saturday was grill and karaoke night and we all had lots of fun. Short walking distance to the beach as others have stated. Signage could be better locating the campground entrance which we passed first time and just happen to see campers behind the trees. Were able to see the Blue Angels practice but want to go back to spend more time on the base visiting the Naval Aviation Museum, the Redoubt, and Fort Barrancas. Beautiful location, the only downside we experienced has been true anywhere along the gulf is that a lot of trash washes up and the water a brown tint.

Another great trip to Oak Grove. We try and stay 2 to 4 weeks each spring, but this time only the six nights. Our friends joined us this year and also had a wonderful trip. The camp is still as nice as any other location we stay. Our only problem was backing into our site (#37). Really tight and the folks across from us had to move their two cars so we could get in, still tight but made it. That was our only issue, if you call that an issue. Bathrooms and laundry are always extremely clean, and should be since they are cleaned twice a day. The campground stays full on most days. The operations runs very well due to the professionalism of the ladies in the office and the camp host. As long as our health allows us to camp, Oak Grove will be on our schedule at least once a year.
We love this place! We just spent a month here while visiting our son who lives in Pensacola. We come a long way to see the family so we usually stay a month. It's close to the Navy Lodge where we put up other family members who visit at the same time. We also were able to get one of the condos for our son and family (he lives about 40 minutes away) for a weekend so that we could all be together. It worked out well with all of us close by. We had site 36 on the end of the second row on the left. The problem with this site is that site 35 is VERY close and at a real weird angle. Several LARGE motorhomes stayed in 35 while we were there and their back end was just inches away from our awning and closed in our space somewhat. We will ask for another site next time. Restrooms were immaculate as always, the club house was clean, and the laundry can be done for 50 cents a wash! Can't beat that. We had a changing of the guard of camp host while we were there. The new guy is friendly enough, but just didn't seem to put much energy into enforcing rules or being helpful. Across the way we had a border collie that barked incessantly and the camp host never did approach the owners. Other campers left notes on the door of the offending owners, but to no avail. We were there for the storm that just recently devastated the area including a tornado warning. The sirens went off on base and some folks said that someone had come knocking on their door to take shelter, but we weren't among those notified. We did anyway - in the bathrooms. Although this building is the only solid structure it is wood construction and we wondered how safe it really was. Fortunately the tornado did not materialize! It was scary, though. This is a super place to stay despite the aircraft and traffic noise! We will be back!!

Immaculate restroom and shower facilities. Nice laundry room. Nice campground with very friendly workers and hosts.

This is a great place to stay, if you enjoy the Florida Coast Line, no traffic, easy driving in and around Pensacola, not your typical tourist atmosphere. The beach was very private, not crowded, very relaxing atmosphere, fishing was outstanding, great food in and around Pensacola. Navy Aviation Museum well worth the trip. I have stayed at many of the Military Campgrounds/Cabins, this is by far one of the best if not the best place I have stayed, thumbs up to the US Navy Command, Pensacola NAS so well maintained. Only problem, I had to leave and return to Kentucky, I will be back!!!

First of all we have not visited a huge number of military campgrounds, but this is by far the first on our list. Everything is top notch from the ladies at the office, the ladies that take care of the bathrooms/laundry, the guys that take care of the grounds, and the best camp host we have met. The bathrooms and laundry is cleaned twice a day and at the same time each day. Could not be better. Mowing happens as needed and cleans empty sites when they are emptied. (To include high pressure washing). The ladies in the office are always extremely polite and professional. The camp host spends the time to make sure everyone is happy and comfortable with what is going on. A great beach is only a short walk. (Not the campgrounds fault, but some people do leave trash on beach for others to pick up). My only negative is the lack of local Wifi. You can purchase Wifi from a third party for a daily, weekly, or months rate. I was not happy with the third party. Would be nice if the base provided the wifi. We used the free Wifi at Starbucks down the street at least once a day. We will spend 2 to 4 weeks at this campground each year we are able to camp. There so much to do here. You can stay busy with just the base activities.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. We made reservations 3 months out and at that time assigned Site #17 and that is where we parked. While checking in one of the office persons received a call that the Blue Angels had cancelled everything including their practices. We had looked forward to seeing them but there are enough other things to do around the area to keep you occupied. We visited the National Cemetery and Fort Barrancas on base and for the first time, Fort Pickens. The real only bad thing about this park is it's lack of WiFi. You can get WiFi from a private concern if you want to pay. We had been without for about 2 weeks and decided to pay the 14.95 for a week. The connections were mediocre at best. We decided that next time we would not do this again and instead go down the road to the Starbucks or Nex and use theirs. It's free, the connections are good and you can sit in your vehicle if you choose. You can wash your vehicles on site but anything with chemicals is not allowed. For the dirtier vehicles there is a wash rack (free)just down the road but if you go there take your own hose as most of theirs are rotten. I hope the following was an isolated thing and doesn't go any further. My next door neighbor had a top-load deep freezer on his patio and I saw another site with a refrigerator. I can understand the frig better than a freezer. Anyway, we enjoyed our visit and looking forward to next time.

This was our first "snowbird" trip to a military RV park and we loved this campground! Great walking/jogging trails, a beautiful sand beach, a great Fitness Center, the Lighthouse and NAS Museum, not to mention the Blue Angels. If you have the opportunity to watch them practice, the best view is from the bleachers behind the museum, which is within walking distance... and you will want to walk or ride bikes; They generate a lot of tourism so the parking lot is packed. Restrooms and laundry facilities are very clean and laundry very reasonable. This campground is a great location for day trips out to see the sites. Sundays we enjoyed attending Liberty Church (Blue Angel Campus) not far from the back gate. The only draw-back was not having a commissary on site. It wasn't far however, and easy to find at Corry Station, but I would have enjoyed riding my bicycle there. We will definately be back!

This was our first experience camping on a base - and now we are ready to do it again and again. This location is terrific - close to beaches, base activities and area cities. The exchange and commissary are indeed a few miles from campground - about 5 miles - but the facilities were the best we've ever experienced - left too much money at Exchange. Shady oak trees, concrete pads and full hookups were great! Laundry was super - lots of machines in great condition. We will be back!
