Beach camping in Pensacola

Driving the 110 with wife and kids in late April to New Orleans and would like to swing by the gulf coast before trekking back to NJ. Any good camping spots around that area? Preferably by the beach.

Depending on space, I might also be able to do an RURR for anyone along the route of NJ-LA and the Carolinas.

Glen I am not up on beach camping but if you head a little south on i75 to High Springs Fl you can check out this : http://www.ginniespringsoutdoors.com/
Or this :

Or just go to Saint Augustine. I know that's not on the gulf but it has a lot of neat stuff and history.
That's just my 2 cents. Enjoy the trip.

Abe, thanks for the suggestions! I'll have to plot those on our route. Current plan after New Orleans is to "skirt" through the gulf coast area via I-10 all the way to 95 and head north back to Jersey.

If time allows, we would like to go to Orlando to visit college-dude son in UCF, so we might be able to pass by I-75, but with only a week and two weekends off, that might not be doable.

Thanks again!

No problem. I was there a few years back in the early spring. Lots of beach & beach houses and not too crowded. Sometimes referred to as the "Redneck Riviera"
