Introduction:

This is a typical commercial RV park located just north of Pensacola. It was convenient for us as we traveled west, but it's not somewhere we'd go out of our way to return to.

The Basics:

Overall Rating: 3.9/5

Price per night / Discounts: $38 / None

Campground website: Pensacola RV Park

Our Site #: Unknown

Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):

2.5/5: Like most commercial RV parks, you're parked right next to your neighbor in this park. We had a little more space between rigs than some other places we've stayed, but there was no vegetation or other real barrier to create privacy.

Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):

3.75/5: This park was convenient to I-10, but about 20-30 minutes from downtown Pensacola and the Pensacola Naval Air Station. So, not really far, but also not particularly close to the places we wanted to go. It's a perfect location for a stopover, but I wouldn't spend more than a couple days here. I believe there are other RV parks closer to the beaches that would probably be more convenient for sightseeing.

Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):

5/5: We had a large, level, pull through site with full hook ups. Everything worked well and the campground was easy to get into and out of.

Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):

4/5: We had to call to make our reservations and their website had limited information. The person we dealt with at check in was very nice and gave us a discounted rate, even though I don't believe we were actually entitled to it. He was just a nice guy. He also showed us to our site, which was appreciated.

Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):

4/5: We relied on our Verizon service and it worked fine.

Summary:

There is nothing particularly special about this park. It is convenient to I-10, and not too far from the major sites in Pensacola, but not that close either. The campground is reasonably well maintained, but it's not somewhere people are hanging out by their RVs every night. It very much felt like a stopover place, and for that, it was fine. It just cost an awful lot for what it was.
