Pensacola RV Park

This is our third year coming to Pensacola in March.  Dale's parents moved here 5 years ago to get away from the cold in Pennsylvania. The last 2 years, we stayed for a month at the Gulf Pines KOA.  As we have a family gathering planned for this June in Myrtle Beach, we decided to stay this year for 3 months, and then make our way north to Myrtle Beach.  Our plan was to work-camp at the KOA.  When those plans did not materialize, we chose to stay at a new park closer to the folks...the Pensacola RV Park , just recently opened.

While we were here last year, there was news that this park was running into objections from the local residents on having an RV park in their neighborhood.  The homeowners petitioned the county to have the zoning for this property revisited with the intention of blocking the opening of this park.  They contended that their children would be at risk from large motorhomes and trailers traveling on a narrow road. The effort failed, but the park's opening was delayed for 6 months while the fight wore on.
The RV Park is located behind a nursery.  We found this to be interesting in that if the zoning commission had changed the zoning to disallow the RV park (a commercial enterprise), would they have disallowed the nursery as well?

The park is set back pretty far from the road, making it very quiet.  Last year at the KOA, we were situated right on I-10...traffic noise constantly!   Interior roads are packed dirt with no ruts or potholes.

When we do not have a neighbor on our right, we have a huge tree in view.

The park is fairly small, but the gravel pull-thrus are long enough for all of our vehicles.

We had a visit by Davina & Henry Szymt with their rig, Ketchup and A1.
Pensacola RV Park hadn't seen a single HDT until we arrived and now there are two.

Sometimes people park on the road and make navigation through the park difficult.
