    Recreation

    Many visitors young and old come to Fort Pickens to enjoy its scenic location on the beach. The white sands of Santa Rosa Island are the perfect place for a long walk or an afternoon of building sandcastles. The warm ocean waters are great for swimming and snorkeling. Fishermen will find a pier just a short distance from the picnic pavilions. It can be used by visitors without a Florida fishing license. Many hiking trails through the sand dunes provide beautiful views and hours of exploration. Historic Fort Pickens, a pentagonal fort built to defend Pensacola Bay in 1834, is just 1 mile from the campground. The structure was fortified after the War of 1812 and was one of four forts in the South never occupied by Confederates during the Civil War.

    Natural Features

    The campground is located on a barrier island between the Gulf of Mexico and Pensacola Bay. Groves of live oak trees are scattered across the island, providing shelter for resident and migrating bird populations, as well as shade for park visitors. The Gulf Islands National Seashore is home to sparkling blue waters, white beaches and coastal marshes. However, more than 80% of the national park is underwater, as it's a vital protective habitat to marine life.

    Nearby Attractions

    The campground is a short distance from restaurants and beach nightlife, downtown Pensacola, the Pensacola Naval Air Station and Naval Aviation Museum, the Pensacola Lighthouse and other historic sites. Campsites are within 1/4 mile of the beaches of the Emerald Coast of the Gulf of Mexico and Pensacola Bay.

    Think of Big Lagoon State Park as a gateway. It not only offers swimming, boating, fishing, camping, hiking and paddling, but adventurers also can begin or end a 1,515-mile sea kayaking journey on the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail around the entire state. The top half of a kayak embedded in sand marks the launch site along with a box containing a weathered log book.

    The park is also a gateway for the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. The park is a stopover for more than 23 species of wood-warbler and a variety of ducks, sandpipers and black-bellied plovers. Bring binoculars or borrow a pair from the ranger station and roam the shore and extensive coastal forest, or climb the three-story observation tower for a bird’s-eye view.

    Meaher State Park Campground, near Spanish Fort, AL, is a solid spot for camping all year round. This place has a lot going for it, especially if you’re into waterfront views and spacious sites. Some campers have mentioned that the sites are nicely spaced out, so you’re not staring into your neighbor’s RV. Plus, if you’re lucky, you might snag one of those coveted waterfront spots.

    The campground is pretty well-equipped. You’ve got electric and water hookups, showers, and even a sanitary dump. Pets are welcome, and there’s a market on-site if you need to grab some essentials. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a good old-fashioned campfire. Just keep in mind that the showers are push-button, which might take a bit of getting used to.

    For those who like to explore, you’re just a short drive from the USS Alabama Memorial Park and the Naval Air Station in Pensacola. Both are worth a visit if you’ve got the time. And if you’re into seafood, there’s a great spot called Felix’s just down the road.

    The park itself is clean and well-maintained, with plenty of shady spots and asphalt streets. Some campers have noted that you can hear the nearby I-10, but it’s not a deal-breaker. The restrooms are clean, and there’s even free Wi-Fi if you need to stay connected.

    Overall, Meaher State Park Campground is a great place to kick back, enjoy some beautiful views, and maybe even spot an alligator or two. Whether you’re in a tent, RV, or cabin, you’ll find what you need for a comfortable stay.
