Wife and I just completed our first trip to a FAMCAMP a couple of weeks ago, and we loved it, and were pleased,and proud of the facilities ! We went in for the full experince, sponcering my B-I-L and S-I-L as it was them that kinda got us into RVing.
Wealso had our daughter,her boyfriend,and our grandaughter, who was born with Spina Bifida, and uses a wheelchair for mobility.
Seamless process, execpt for getting onto the base, which would'nt have been a problem, but we arrivede after the Pass& ID office closed due to a blwout on our camper on I-95 near Pooler, Ga. We didn't arrive untill almost 10 pm and the lady at Pass&Id told us we would have to come back each day of our 7 day stay to get a new pass, due to the printer being down. went back next morning and was issued a pass for the remainder of our stay.
Needless to say I was Proud of the base and its facilities, and glad my relatives got to see and experince a taste of Navy Life.
The campground was in great condition and was spotless, the grass was mowed twice in our 6 day stay.Restroom, bath house, and laundry faclities were spotless. Close access to almost deserted beach via a board walk over the dunes was great! sitting on the beach under our EasyUP enjoying the breeze, and watching the ship traffic was a truly enjoyable experince.
The only down side to our stay there was no ramped accessed to the beach for my grandaughter who is in a wheelchair. She is only 7 y/o so not a problem, but a major obstacle for an adult in a wheelchair. Parking area side of boardwalk was ramped, but beach side access was down several steep stepps. will deinitely be back !

Welcome and glad you tried famcamping, you gave the base such glorious praise but we don't which famcamp you stayed in. It sounds like a place we would enjoy. Please give the details and continue to enjoy them there are a lot with awesome amenities.

Ship traffic, beach, well maintained.... My guess would be Pelican Roost at Mayport Naval Station.

Sorry for the oversight ! It was in fact Pelicans Roost RV Park on Naval Station Mayport ! A great first experience with Famcamps.
Sitting at USCG MARATHON, as I type this ! Keeping an eye on the weather, trying to deside whether to bug out 3 days early or not ?

I'd watch it for another day or two. The forecasts I'm watching are all over the place. It should make it's track known soon.

We've had lots of thunder & lightning and some heavy rain but not much wind, this is ahead of the other weather system. I'd think the USCG would advise us it's time to go, but I want to beat the rush out and to other Famcamps. Thinking of heading back to Manatee Cove!

Playing it on the safe side is never a bad plan. If the weather is less than ideal then that's just another reason to move. The storm in question is not even a tropical storm yet but if it gets into the gulf it could intensify quickly and if folks start evacuating the Keys, you want to be out of there before that happens. Best guess right now is that's not going to happen but with these storms you never know. Manatee Cove is a good place to be while watching the storm because it's right on the major north/south corridor (I-95).
