Very handy park for Pensacola Beach. We had a premium spot right on the beach, which is on the sound side, not the gulf side. Easy walk across the street to the gulf shore beaches. They have opened up a bar on the beach in the campground. It is supposed to close at 10 each night, but until then, if you want to sit outside and enjoy the quiet, you are SOL. Usually 20-30 people there each night. Sometimes, till 10:30. If you enjoy being right where the action is, it would be great. Further back in the park, it is quieter, and the price is better, but the sports are not on the beach. I feel the price paid would be more worth it without the bar.
During the daytime hours, the beach is lovely, with umbrellas and chairs available to all. The beach is open to the public, as I think they all have to be, so on weekends, it can get a bit crowded.
The campground is clean and well kept. Sites are not large, with not a lot of space between sites. They do help park people, which is a plus. The WiFi is not great. We used our Verizon mostly. - Clfac54

Two things would keep us from staying here again. First, they should restrict the Tiki Bar and beach area to resort guests only. I don't mind little kids cutting through my site, which happens. I do mind adults who have been drinking cutting through my site all day and after dark. No wonder they send a special email to remind you to lock up your valuables, the place is not secure at all. Also did not care for loud, foul language right outside my rig. Also did not care for the trash on the beach, empty beer cans and cigarette butts that stayed there all day. By the end of the week I was tired of listening to someone else's choice of rock music. Second, they reserve the best waterfront sites for motor homes, and trailers are relegated to the crummier sites even though the price is the same for both. I understand they cannot control the construction on the adjacent property but they can control the clutter of tiki huts that block the view of the water. And they could adjust the price accordingly. Site 22 is bad, 23 is worse and 24 they have no business using at all but you cannot avoid them because the office assigns sites, you cannot reserve one. To be fair, we did have fun there, nice people around us and they had a meet-n-greet for resort guests one night. Our dogs liked swimming in the sound. But this really did not offset the negatives so we would not go back. - janci

Excellent RV park in Pensacola Beach. Park is on the Santa Rosa sound with a nice beach. Across the street is the Gulf and beautiful beaches. Our site was right off the highway so we did experience some noise, however it was not a problem with fans on. Park is busy, sites are filled as soon as they are vacant. Staff is friendly and helpful. There are many restaurants, bars and stores within walking distance. It was our first time here, however friends told us the Tiki Bar on their beach was a little loud and people walked through sites to get to it which was annoying for those paying premium price for a site on the beachfront. It was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed, we met some very nice people, some who come yearly for month(s). Concrete pads and blacktop roads, each sites has a patio and pavers which extended it a little bit. Picnic table at each site. Would have given it a 10 if they fixed patio pavers and other minor maintenance items. We will come back and stay longer since we didn't experience even a small part of what's in the area. - Pamela Wick

Wonderful little park on the water with super friendly staff, nice facilities, and pleasant scenery. We were parked on one of the pull-in, waterfront sites which provided us with a windshield full of beautiful sunrises, and marsh scenes. The sites are more narrow than we normally like, but with the view, we spent more time in front of our coach than along the side under our awning. All the utilities are nicely placed and all worked well. Our site was gravel with a concrete patio and we parked the Jeep behind the coach. The check-in process was pleasant and the office person provided a wealth of information about local attractions, restaurants, and routes around the various toll roads. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. - glenstmary

Stopped in on our way back to Canada from Florida and were very impressed. Approx 1/2 mile off I10 but traffic noise was not an issue. Relatively easy access off the highway and checkin was easy. Guided to ur site. We had a drive in site facing the bayou/cove and found it a beautiful and relaxing site. Site was crushed rock with a concrete pad and picnic table. Grass in between sites. WiFi was sporadic. Excellent cable. Site facilities worked fine. We very much enjoyed our stay and would have liked to stay longer then our 3 day stay. Close to Pensacola and the beaches. - Darrell M

Stayed here for five nights. The park is at the far end of the island but it is a nice drive passing the sand dunes and beach. We were in C loop which does not have much shade. Sites are paved, level, and are close together but enough room for slide outs. Utilities well placed. Only grass between sites. Restrooms were kept clean with separate shower rooms. Check in was quick and easy. The fort was interesting and it was great watching the Blue Angels practicing. Plenty of things to do and places to eat at on the mainland. We would camp here again if in the area. - 21fbrs

Campground was clean and within walking distance of both the Gulf beach and Pensacola Bay. Be sure to plan time to visit the fort. I visited after leaving my campsite the last day. - deechurch

Upfront, this review is from the perspective of 3/4 time RVers who mostly stay at State Park type campgrounds. We came to the Fort Walton Beach area to visit family and this campground was the only one close enough that was available to fit our 39' fifth wheel. For us, desired amenities are laundry facilities in a campground. We do not use pools etc. Checked in with no issues then went unescorted to site 65, which was a premium back in costing $96 per night across from the water view sites. Back in was very tight. We consider ourselves adequate backers and had to have the neighbor across the street move his truck. The sites were narrow and really close together but the landscaping makes you feel like you have some privacy. Very nice laundry facility. All sites are FHUs. The back rows butt up next to US98 and you do get road noise. There was a small no-leash dog area but no real trails in the park, or even nearby, to walk your dog. - MK_Willi

This is a fantastic property with nearby underrated beaches and restaurants. The landscaping is immaculate, and the kids enjoyed having a heated pool in March. The other campers, the majority of whom were from up north, were all extremely friendly and invited us to participate in some of the social activities put on by the resort. Nearby traffic is noisy at night, but you eventually get used to it. - SportDawgs

If you are going to stay here i would recommend a water site. We didn't and therefore the view was non-existent. Navarre prides itself on being a quiet place and it is. I didn't feel there was much to do around the area (see below) unless you drove to Destin. The entrance is poorly marked and we all drove past it. Small resort and you are on a busy road. Landscaping needed worked on. Very tiny beach area but a great pool. The sites are very large and the patio was quite roomy. - Let'sGo!

We went to stop by and stay for a few days but they were not open and only got an answering machine. We had to drive thru the park and thought we could stay and pay the next morning. We saw only mobile homes and a lot of tall grass. One of the people that showed us where RVs park said the office was closed for next few days. We were tired and drove to the RV sites and they all had such tall grass it made us miserable we couldn't even enjoy sitting outside. So after trying to hook up the ants are so bad we said no way and started to leave. This is not a clean park for RVs at all! I can see why there are only a couple RVs there. I wouldn't suggest any one to stay there. Stay at Walmart or drive over to Lillian at least Its clean and has facilities and someone will be there the next morning so you can pay. - PnM

Ashton Run is an older 90-space mobile home park that has 10 RV spaces. The park is being redeveloped, so many - maybe two-thirds - of the mobile home spaces are empty. Some brand new mobile homes and some older mobile homes. A few small children. Office has posted hours; suggest calling ahead. The RV spaces are all together in a row in the center of the park. Paved streets, speed humps, with very flat grass sites. No trees. Received the standard broadcast digital TV stations via RV antenna. No rec hall, laundry or bathhouse, so must be self-contained. Park was quiet and clean. US-98 between Fairfield & Blue Angel has many services: gas, fast food, retail, laundromat. Wal-Mart & Target are at the corner of Blue Angel & Sorrento, just north of NASP west gate. If you are outside your RV at 8am, most days you can hear the national anthem at NASP. We stayed here while visiting family members stationed nearby. We have been to P’cola with our RV at least 10 times; have stayed at Big Lagoon, Oak Grove, even in Lillian, AL; this was our longest stay; first time at this place; would stay here again. Rate shown is based on monthly rent. We stayed here two months, tried it for one and then added a second. - Since1994

We just did an overnighter here and didn't unhook our tow vehicle. There were spots on the site that would obviously be muddy on a rainy day, but the site was basically level. Large pavilion area for picnics/barbecue next to office. Seemed to be quite a few permanent residents, and some of rvs were rundown. Convenient on/off to highway. - Maga04

Stayed here due to our favorite campground being full for the 4th of July weekend. Reservation made over the phone. No problem there. Campground is very close to I-10 and we got a lot of road noise. Few OTA TV stations. WiFi was good. 30-amp Electric was TERRIBLE! Only 113 volts without any load. 108 when we turned on our air conditioner. Hooked up our auto-former and we managed OK, but could not run the air conditioner and microwave at the same time. Pull thru was OK, but sandy. Sewer hook up was up in the air. Don't understand why campgrounds don't have the sewer drain pipe flush with the ground. Water hookup was way forward of the electric box. Had to add another section of hose to reach or 25 foot hose. I doubt we'll stay here again. - thetravelkids
Mar 2018 - $39.00
Pull thru sites. No hot water in the men's shower. Mud/dirt, no level site and the grass was not cut. No GS discount as advertised. Convenient to I-10, but not worth $$, so will not stay again. - Alaska2018

The reviews here are accurate so I will just add a few observations. We stayed in a beachfront site, and the deck at the back adds a lot of space. Our site (66) had a very tall tiki hut in front that was a little distracting so I would recommend a different site. The Premium Beach sites have no one on your patio side, which is nice, but we were always on our deck so these sites would have no advantage for us. This is a quiet stretch of the Panhandle, if you want action you will have to go to Destin or Pensacola Beach. They have some activities here, you have to watch the whiteboard at the entrance because they don't post them all on their website. They had free coffee and donuts, an ice cream social and a potluck breakfast. We missed the breakfast because we found out about it too late. You are allowed to wash your rig, they will bring you an extra long hose so you can use well water instead of the water supply at your site. We enjoyed Dewey Destin's very much. The food was great, and they are on a private beach so they allowed our dogs to play out there. - janci

This is a private campground, near the Navarre Beach Bridge. It is centrally located to a lot of things to do within a 20-minute drive, such as: minutes to one of the best beaches in Florida (Navarre Beach); A variety of restaurants, bars, etc.; Gulf Breeze Zoo; the Butterfly House (Spring through Fall); a Lighthouse; museums; etc. A lot to do and enjoy! The campground itself is nice. A little tighter than I prefer, but not uncomfortably so. The sites are paved and fairly level. They have patios with a picnic table on each. They are all Full-Hook-Up with cable included. There are even some sites backing up to the small onsite beach. The park has a heated pool, as well as occasional activities at the clubhouse. They also sell propane, if you need it. Although located on US-98, the traffic noise is not bothersome. If you stay near the water, you rarely hear any of it. The staff is wonderful, very nice, and extremely helpful. If you let them know of any problem with your site or in the park, it is usually taken care of within minutes. Really. Most of the guests here are friendly and like to talk. This has become our normal home-base, when we visit the area a few times a year. This is one of the best parks in the whole area! - ben31rv

We stayed five nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. Ours was a 60 foot site that was quite close to other campers. The back-in sites appear to be a bit shorter and all are quite close. The site did have an adjacent parking pad for tow vehicle or toad. They have several beachside lots that backup to the beach and the protected waterway inside of the barrier islands. These waterfront sites have a small private patio overlooking the beach. The park is right off the main drag but the road noise was not a problem here in the middle of the park. The front-office staff were pleasant and accommodate a date change and offered a few other sites if we wanted to switch. They seem to have a variety of activities for the snow birds several times each week. There are no sidewalks along the road. There is one restaurant in walking distance and a walk-in clinic right across the street. You can walk the beach but not very far before you hit obstacles. They have canoe and kayak rentals or bring your own. They have a really nice fishing pier on which they say you do not need a license to fish. - Moe and Flo are on the go

This is a very, very narrow and tight campground. The sites are sand with concrete strips to park on, and a small concrete pad. We did not use any of the facilities, other than walking on the pier onto the bay. The staff was very nice and had a package waiting for us. We appreciated that as many campgrounds will not accept packages for guests. The roads are very narrow and the entrance is bordered on both sides by palm trees that I was concerned I would not get though. They try to make it a festive place by painting bright colors on buildings, and that kind of works, a bit... The sites are so narrow that one feels very cramped. There is no place to connect or disconnect a toad except in the middle of the road, which is only 8' wide. There are a combination of tents, trailers, motorhomes, and rental cabins in the park. It is about 4 miles from Navarre beach which is a beautiful white sand beach. It is also close to a Walmart and other shopping options. We would have given this park a bit better rating except for the cost. We stayed a week and the price was $64 per night for Sun - Thu, and $98 per night for Fri - Sat. The park is barely worth $64 per night, and $98 per night is way too much. - Ccsmith51

Very nice park. There were some sites that looked out over the bay, need to reserve these early. One of the most friendly places we have been. Lots of dogs and chatting neighbors. Roads were a little narrow. Hosts helped get parked in space. All sorts of RV types and good combination of long term and weekend campers. All facilities were clean and neat. Great system set up to receive mail and packages. Overall nice place. - WeGo2See

We were very disappointed with this campground because of how close and crowded the campers were. The campground is about 100 feet wide with 4 rows of campers across that width. They also have "cabins" along one side of it. We just don't like crowds and this campground had too many people in too small a space for us to enjoy it. The campground itself is right on Hwy 98 and traffic was very busy. There weren't a lot of restaurants to choose from within a reasonable distance. A super WalMart is just down the road from the park. - Bfytw

Stayed in one of the "Premium" sites. That means it is on the beach side of the interior campground road. Site is close to water but water is not visible because of vegetation. Beautiful white powder sand beach and nice water. When we were there, we never saw more than 5 people at any one time within 1/2 mile. It's very private and quiet. - mroswell

We stayed a week here on spot 50, which is one of the 6 "premium" sites that are the closest to the beach. The pad was recent concrete and level. All hook-ups worked except the cable TV. The camp host said I was the first to report a problem with it. We stayed too busy too watch it anyway. The premium sites are terribly hot with little shade and a summer sun that tracks over in a way that your awning doesn't do much good.
The interior roads are very rough, even to walk on. The path and boardwalk to the beach is short and well maintained. The beach is the same beautiful white sand that is out on the Gulf Beach fronts. The water in the sound can be dingy and trashy after big rains, and during our stay it was badly stained with tannin acid from pine forest run-off.
The camp host was excellent. The facilities great. It is a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk to the Naval Aviation Museum. The major complaint by all campers here is that no swimming is allowed because there is no lifeguard. This is totally idiotic. Consequently we spent most of our beach time on Santa Rosa Island across the Sound and a 20 minute drive out the west gate.
During the week I grew tired of the Navy rules requiring ID cards flashed every way you turn, boat and equipment rental rules that required turn-in at 3pm and the perpetual "No Pets" and "No Swimming" signs posted everywhere. (Your dog is allowed in the camp ground.) - Tidy Boy

A very popular campground, that offers a great location for visiting the Pensacola area. Sites 46 - 51 are considered water view sites (although most of the view is blocked by trees) and are reservable for a maximum of 14 days. Sites 1 - 45 are reservable for a maxium of 90 days. Although the sites are close to each other, there is still plenty of room to make yourself home. Each site offers FHU. Campground is big rig and pet friendly. There are a few pull through sites; although, most are back-in. Even if you don't have a water view site, the beach is only a short walk from anywhere within the campground. Swimming is not allowed a the campground beach; however, swimming is allowed at another beach a short drive away. Free Cable TV and WIFI are avaialble. Both worked well, with only occasional slow periods with WIFI. Campground was clean and well maintained. Includes recreation room, laundry, and bath house. - Navretiree

This place is a dump. Most of the lots were taken by full timers. Junk everywhere. The biggest complaint was the night club just beyond the hedge row played music so loud from 10pm - 2am that we could feel the vibration from the drums. Don't stay here. - Saved farmer

Small RV park. Spaces close together. Road is paved, gravel sites with wooden patio. Mostly full time people living there. All sites are well kept. Owner very friendly and will steal your dog if you aren't careful! Just kidding, she will fatten them up with all her treats. The RV park is close to everything in Pensacola, a little further from the beach but not a terrible drive. Small bathrooms but clean. Small laundry room. No pool, playground or any other type of extras. A whole lot of cats roaming around but they caused no problems for us. The way I saw it was they kept all the vermin away! Everyone there is very friendly. We occasionally heard the train that passed nearby. And some Saturday nights we could hear the "thumping" from the music at a nearby night club. Neither of those things bothered us at all. We would certainly stay there again. - LaneyC RN

Drifters is a small, compacted park. You may be able to get in and out with a big dog but not designed to be big rig friendly. Many full timers but clean and neat sites. We only saw 2 sites for overnighters. Bath house was clean but shower hot water was just warm. You get a full page of rules when you check in and that is followed up with demeaning “Don’t” signs where ever there is a spot on the wall. No pool, no fire ring, no table, no grill. No pull-throughs, but there are plenty of yippy dogs. Wi-Fi and cable are good. $30 for the stay is a $27 Good Sam rate + tax. - rossby
