Blue Angels Campground, Pensacola

Once again, we've made a trek to a military FamCamp, this time it's the Blue Angels Campground in Pensacola, Florida.  It is located right on the bay.


The campground is located at a former World War II seaplane base.


There are two areas in the campground, one is modern with 50 amp FHU sites, called Battleship Row.  The other campground is older, with 30 amp water and electric sites, and a dump station, called Pirates Cove.  It is nicely wooded, with large sites.


There is a small beach, when we went, it was terribly crowded.


The local residents watched us walk on the sand.


There is a miniature golf course with all the holes built with a military theme.


And for all you Navy guys that make fun of us Coasties, calling us "Shallow Water Sailors", here is a picture of one of the U.S. Navy's finest sea going vessels.


Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Now that's the kind of crowded beach I like.

  2. I guess I'll just have to learn to live with those 'beach crowds' :-)))

  3. It used to be we would always look for wooded campgrounds. Now we try to avoid them. They get in the way of our satellite receiver. Plus, we rarely plan to be anyplace where it's that warm we need the tree cover. Love the "crowded" beach.

  4. I hope you get to see the Blue Angels practice. That's supposed to be the highlight of the area...at least in my book.

  5. Looks like a great place ~ we noticed the campground when we visited last summer. Like Karen said hope you get to watch the Blue Angels practice... go to their web site and check out the schedule. Also the air museum is the best I've seen.
    Have fun & Travel safe

  6. Sure is wonderful that there are so many post benefits for our military. You guys will be experts at taking advantage of them. Lucky you!

  7. Just catching up, been a few days with poor internet here. Glad you made it to FL. If you tire of the beach (doubtful) head inland to the Blackwater State Forest and catch a little bit of North FL wilderness.

  8. Short, to the point, and humorous.
    Works for me!
