The Pensacola Bay Area offers a diverse landscape for camping. From camping alongside the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico or Santa Rosa Sound to pitching a tent along stunning river bends or parking your RV amidst a lush green state or national park, you’ll find an array of choices for getting back to nature in our area.
Perdido Key Area
Ranked by Dr. Beach as one of the nation’s top 20 beaches, Perdido Key, Spanish for “lost island,” is a prime destination for beach camping.
On the “Key” itself, Johnson Beach offers primitive camping, with some minor sand-hiking, on the far eastern edge. Sugar-white sand, rolling sand dunes and wetlands make up the landscape of this camping destination.
Located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, Perdido Cove RV Resort and Marina is an ideal RV destination. The park has 56 RV sites complete with 30/50 Amp service, water, sewer, cable TV and Wi-Fi. Visitors will enjoy fishing from the pier or relaxing in the white-sand picnic area, which allows families with kids to relax and let them roam free on the nearby playground. The grounds also include a clubhouse, general store, laundry facility and swimming pool.
Just across the bridge from Perdido Key is Big Lagoon State Park. The state park has a total of 655 acres just waiting to be explored. The park includes opportunities for kayaking, hiking, fishing, birding and more. The park provides availability for both RV and tent camping, with the 75 camping spots that are equipped with water and electricity.
Pensacola Beach Area
Pensacola Beach is home to the Pensacola Beach RV Resort and Fort Pickens, which is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore that was recently ranked third-best beach in country and eighteenth-best in the world by TripAdvisor.
A great camping location, Fort Pickens provides 200 sites, including tent camping and RV camping areas for RV’s up to 50 feet. The sites include water, electricity and picnic tables.
Located in the heart of Pensacola Beach on Santa Rosa Sound, and just a short walk to the Gulf of Mexico, is the Pensacola Beach RV Resort. The resort includes 72 full-hookup sites and provides RVers with picnic tables, a clubhouse, a swimming pool, restrooms, laundry facilities and free Wi-Fi.
Just to the north of downtown Pensacola, campers will find what’s known as the “canoe capital of Florida.” Blackwater River runs through Blackwater River State Park. Blackwater River is a beautiful, sand-bottom river perfect for kayaking, swimming or just floating on a tube. Splashing in the river is easy, as it’s just a short walk from the campground. There are 30 campsites with water, electric and RV sewer hookups.
Close to Blackwater River is Coldwater Creek, another popular kayaking destination. Located on Coldwater Creek, Adventures Unlimited offers tent and RV camping, cabins and larger group cabins.
