We called just before leaving our previous campground for a reservation. Jessica helped us and was very nice and courteous. Once we arrived in Panama City I called Jessica again to have her help us to the base. She gave us great directions. She did forget to tell us to stop at the visitor center before entering the main gate line. We needed to get a pass for the truck so they made us turn around and go back. That was not easy pulling a travel trailer but was possible. Got the pass and got back in line to get on base. Directions were great on how to get to the marina. The people at the marina were extremely helpful and even went to our site with us and helped us get parked. There were several openings and it was no problem for us to get our 24' travel trailer into the spot even though we are new retirees and new to pulling a camper. There is great free cable tv here. The bathhouse has 5 individual locking shower stalls with toilets and sinks. They all have dead bolt locks. One has a sit down shower and ramp to make it ADA accessible. In that new building is the laundry facility. Wash is $1.50 per load and drying is $1.00 per load. They sell quarters at the marina. There are only 3 washers and 3 dryers. There are 3 eating places on base. One is for active military only (Galley) one is under renovation (C4 Cafe) and one is only open a few days a week in the evenings. There are plenty of places off base to eat. It cost us $19 a night to stay, but we are retired military. You have to be checked in by 5 pm and they do not allow late arrivals. But they tell you this when you make your reservation. We did not go over to South side, but this older main camp is not big rig friendly but southside is. We would definitely come here again. We loved it.
