Another great two weeks at Eglin! Once again, we stayed at Postl Point, never more than 75% occupancy, but it was obvious that three or four were full timing. Weather was great except for two storms that blew through, temps averaged right around 89 degrees, but most of the time we had a breeze to alleviate the heat. The grounds were still maintained nicely and the showers/bathrooms were always cleaned daily. The only possible downside was that the office closed for two weeks without any prior notice, just note on the door that they would be closed and if anyone needed LP, they gave the number for Outdoor Recreation. Not really a big problem, we had no campsite issued and since we wanted to extend our vacation for another week, we just used the drop box. Definitely a great spot to camp, can't wait until next year. You just can't beat walking out your front door every morning and looking across the bay!

R.L. left this review using the Directory software: - We stayed at Camp Robbins and its one of our favorites so far. We probably would still be there but we had reservations at Panama City. We enjoyed the well spaced sites with the largest concrete patios we've seen. We checked in on the heels of a big storm that had knocked out power in Mary Esther and downed a lot of trees. The park had several trees down, including one that landed on a Class A motorhome. Not sure if that had anything to do with it, but the girl who checked us in was not very efficient. Apparently they have a new computer system and she couldn't give us our frequent camper discount. The office/lounge area is one of the nicest we've seen. Excellent library. Did not use the bathrooms or laundry but the building looked very nice. The setting for the office was well landscaped and attractive but as it's located at the very back of the camp some signage would be helpful. There are 2 driveways into the park. Some signage here too would be helpful. Would definitely stay here again. We were not impressed with Postal Point. Even without it's being mostly under water when we drove through the sites seemed oddly placed and not too appealing.

There is a serious lack of signage for the FAMCAMP The directions are correct, you should follow the signs for the Commissary-Exchange. When you get on Memorial Trail headed toward the Commissary-Exchange, you will round a right curve then you need to start looking for Shambo Cove Rd on the left. There is a sign board that points toward the FAMCAMP but you must look for it. Next lack of signage is there is NO obvious sign for the FAMCAMP entrance. Once on Shambo Cove look for the second road which is marked with white rocks that are supposed to read FC. This is a good entrance to the park. There are no signs in the park but if you drive straight in toward the back of the park, the office is located at the end of the road. Hope this helps!

Camp Robbins (Eglin FAMCAMP) is still a really nice campground. We stayed in one of the 3-day sites. We were on our way to Arizona and stopped here as we have been here before. There are 3 of the 3-day sites they keep open for those travelling through. I asked the staff if I could have an extra day and they said no problem. Although, any more than that and I would have to move. The campground was full this time of year with the snowbirds. We really liked how dark it is at night, especially when you remove the light bulb from the power box. Keep in mind it is their busy time of year so you may not get a site. There was a guy waiting for our site when we were packing up to go. We did not use the bath house or laundry so I cannot comment. Still a really good FAMCAMP for $20 per night.

Camp Robbins is a beautiful campground, nicely spaced, wide, long and level spots. Had no trouble with my big rig. The campground is close to everything, PX, Commissary, Starbucks all within walking distance. The staff was excellent except for not wanting to pump propane on cold days. Had to drive to Postal Point Campground to get it. Washers and dryers were very clean but a bit pricey $1.75 each. Restroom and showers were very clean. Lots of hiking trails, had lots of great walks through and around the recreation area. Ticks were a problem for the dogs but they loved the trails and the waterfront. Will be back next season. Thanks Eglin, keep up the great work.

An enjoyable short stay at Camp Robbins. The campground was only about half full (same at Postal Point). The Camp Robbins office hours have changed to 0900-1500, M-F, closed Sat and Sun. Don't know if that's just for the Summer season or a permanent cutback. Also, the FamCamp no longer offers a 10% discount for using a Services credit card. As others have noted, would be nice if cable TV was available. We were able to pull in 12 channels with the crank-up antenna, but reception was not consistent due to interference from fairly constant air traffic (same interference for the Wi-Fi caused repeated loss of signal). By the way, if you love the sound of freedom, you'll enjoy it to your heart's content with all the activity at Eglin, especially with the F-35's in the pattern. This is a very well kept campground with well-spaced spots and lots of room to maneuver (we camped in a 38' 5th wheel). The campground is very convenient to the BX/Commissary, as well as a great springboard location to attractions in Ft Walton Beach and Destin. If you camp here and haven't been to the Air Armament Museum, you don't want to miss the opportunity...it's just outside the East gate.

Another great stay at Postal Point, weather was great, the view was as beautiful as ever! This visit, Postal Point stayed fuller than it was the same time last year, completely full the last five days of our stay, Camp Robbins was only about half full while I was there. It looked to me that word has finally gotten out that Postal Point now has 50 amp service since 5 of the campers were in the big rigs. The grounds were immaculate and the bathhouse was kept very clean the entire time. A couple of negatives: There were two campers that were obviously homesteading. From the start, it was clear that the new camp manager was holding at least one spot for friends of friends. The spot we wanted was taken, but when we asked for the spot next to it, she told us it was also taken, but it stayed vacant for the first three days. When the second camper finally appeared, both sites held a small party and the manager was one of the guests. A small gripe, I know, but it irritated me that some people are allowed to reserve spots while most people aren't. The people at the Outdoor Rec Center were absolutely great, and it's location is super convenient in case you need drinks, snacks or ice. The boat rental was smooth and efficient. I know it's not part of the campground, but the military beach has cut back on open days. Last year it was open 7 days a week, now they're only open Thursday through Sunday. Some said the sequester was to blame, I don't really know, but it's a shame because it's so much nicer there than the public beaches. Still, all in all, a great camp and a good time. I do plan on going down a little later next year (the water was still pretty cold this time) and see how things are then.

We didn't stay here but took a field trip to check things out. In the past my opinions have been mostly negative. On this trip I must say that this place has changed so much that I may in the future consider coming here even though I like to have a confirmed reservation and they don't take reservations here. There were no sites that looked trashy and they appeared neat and clean. A big improvement from my last visits. I counted 26 vacant sites and this was the week before Easter. We drove out again the Tuesday after Easter and also counted 26 vacant sites. Postl Point only had one site but I probably wouldn't stay there. So. Overall, Eglin Famcamp is looking good.

Enjoying our stay here.... Laundry/restrooms are nice & clean. Wi-Fy isn't working...struck by lightning a few weeks ago & not fixed yet. CG about half full, sites not too level but OK, mostly pull thrus. I like the concrete picnic table & pad. Nice trails around base. Will stay here again if in the area. Plenty of room to move to maneuver around CG. Stayed here in a 39' 5th wheel.

My daughters (8 & 11) and I tent camped here. Camp ground was lightly populated (guessing less than 50% of RV spots were occupied - total of three tents up including ours). Bathroom and laundry facilities very good/clean. Excellent trail, dirt road, and biking/walking paths on base for kids. Not much just outside the E/W gates. The air museum is great.

Intended to stay at the campsite, but since it was a first come first served affair, I did not want to take a chance and not have room. So I went and stayed at the Army RV park in Destin. One recommendation I would make is for Eglin to accept reservations. If I could have made reservations, I would have stayed on Eglin. As it turned out, there was plenty of space available, even though when I have called the folks at the desk said that it was the "snowbird" season and it would be busy.

Stopped by the office October 2, 2012 which is down to one person so the open hours are still limited and no plans to expand the WIFI beyond the office area. She did say that COX Cable had been there in the spring to get ready to install cable but nothing else has happened.

The Postal Point Campground had no sewer hookups and after heavy rains the campground was mostly flooded. I thought with the water laying around the camp sites made it a safety risk while hooking up the electric. We stayed a week at the Famcamp. It was close to the Exchange/Commissary. The camp sites were big and plenty of space between sites. The office staff were real friendly and very helpful. A few negatives is there was no internet service at the camp sites. You had to go to the office to use the internet and the office was only open 9 to 4 Mon thru Fri and to 12 noon on the weekends. Only got 6 TV stations and the reception to those was poor. The campground looked fairly new. Don't understand why cable TV wasn't installed. The biggest thing to me was I saw two of the biggest cotton mouths of my life.

August 2012

The Postal Point Campground had no sewer hookups and after heavy rains the campground was mostly flooded. I thought with the water laying around the camp sites made it a safety risk while hooking up the electric. We stayed a week at the Famcamp. It was close to the Exchange/Commissary. The camp sites were big and plenty of space between sites. The office staff were real friendly and very helpful. A few negatives is there was no internet service at the camp sites. You had to go to the office to use the internet and the office was only open 9 to 4 Mon thru Fri and to 12 noon on the weekends. Only got 6 TV stations and the reception to those was poor. The campground looked fairly new. Don't understand why cable TV wasn't installed. The biggest thing to me was I saw two of the biggest cotton mouths of my life.

This was the first time I've been to Eglin FamCamp where we spent a week, on Postl Point. I was a little hesitant after reading some other reviews and the "spartan, but clean restrooms", but I'm so glad I took the chance. This place was a gem! They've remodeled the restrooms and showers, new tile, fixtures and air conditioning, and they've also upgraded the electrical connections to 30 and 50 amp. Even over the weekend there were never more than 12 spots filled and two of those appeared to be preset rental units, I never saw anyone at those sites the entire week. We set up on site #101, right in front, looking out over the bay. True, this spot is a little distant from the BX/Commissary, but I'll take that for the solitude and beauty, plus, it's an easy walk to the small beach (if you want to swim in the bay). The equipment rental office is located right next to the beach and you could buy soft drinks, beer, ice and snacks right there. Fairly easy access to the East Gate shopette. I didn't know it until I'd arrived, but Eglin also has a beautiful private beach right on the Gulf, located on Okaloosa Island, $3 admission during the week, $5 on weekends. True, it was 20 miles from the campground, but then you're also right there with all the great restaurants. I will be going back and I highly recommend this little jewel.

We didn't stay here but after visiting the exchange/commissary decided to take a look around. It was a challenge getting to the campground as they are repaving the access road. It was good seeing the boys in blue doing the work instead of contractors. The overflow and picnic area looks to be closed and used for equipment parking. In the past I've been pretty hard on this campground but this time things looked so much better. I didn't see the trashy sites as I have before. I counted 27 vacant sites. I probably would stay here but I like to have a confirmed reservation when I travel this time of the year in this area. I didn't go to Postl Point this time as I've checked it out before and probably wouldn't stay there.

Such a nice park to be less than half full. Too many complaints by fellow campers stating they would not return to the park. Rules are rules, however enforcing them at this park is overkill. Additional comments will be added to clarify my ratings. We won't be staying at this park again.

L.R. left this review using the Directory software: - Only stayed 2 nights. "Have Wifi when it works"; did not work the time I was there. Crews in process of paving access road TO park, don't know if they will do gravel in park. Quiet and ok for short stays. "Social life" not determined in my short stay. Rule list is long but not uncommon for most CGs.

Eglin had 2 separate RV sites to choose from. Robbins had full hook and internet, no cable but close to the laundry and rv office. It's basically in the woods. Postal point had an ocean view, cable tv, showers, no internet, cable tv, no sewage hook up. We chose postal point because we were only staying 3 days and had our own internet (miFi2200). Some of the postal point sites were sort of flooded with about a half inch of water because of the rain. The cable connection was missing at our site so we chose another and parked with an ocean view. Both sites were very spacious for pull throughs. I recommend looking at both sites before you select one.

R.N. left this review using the Directory software: Campsites were spacious and level. Some of the tree branches needed to be trimmed or rubbed against your rig. Very little grass area with sand burrs.
