Most of the snowbirds had left so there were many vacant sites. Most of the sites are located in wooded areas and satellite reception may be difficult. The sites are large and spaced far apart and each one has a concrete pad to park the RV on. For those that use mail forwarding, the FamCamp office accepts camper’s mail from the Post Office. The FamCamp is outside the base gate and about 2.5 miles from the commissary and exchange. There is beach access on base near the commissary/exchange but requires a 0.5 mile walk down a wooden boardwalk and there are no facilities at this beach – not even a porta-potty. So there are few people on this beach. There is another Air Force beach area about 3 miles northwest of Mexico Beach about a mile down a well-maintained dirt road that leads to a parking area about 100 yards from the beach. The FamCamp and the base are fairly isolated, away from the downtown business areas. Wal-Mart is 5 miles away. Jet noise is loud (fighters) and starts before 8:00 am but they seem go home by 5:00 pm and on the weekends. But old guys like me need their afternoon nap and the jet noise make that almost impossible. This place caters to snowbirds with a large clubhouse and a cabanna with a firepit. Coffee and cookies are available in the clubhouse each morning. Lots of activities during the snowbird season.
