Ghosts and Graveyard Tour of Pensacola

56 reviews
Embark on a journey through Pensacola's darker past and haunted present on a group ghost tour. A 1930 Ford transit bus takes you to the city's scariest locations. Discover the macabre history not found in any guidebook and listen to stories about stubborn ghosts who can't seem to move on. Bank robbery, live burial, and embalming techniques are just a few of the tour’s talking points.
US$22.00 per adult

Definitely not what was expected for a Florida State Park. The campsites were in dire need of just basic clean up and repairs. The camp host were nonexistent and there was an extremely rude ranger dude who waved us on and then yelled at us for not stopping. Good grief. Take a vacation or get another job where you don’t have to deal with people. We won’t be coming back here again as there are much nicer Florida State parks with much nicer people.

We stayed for three nights at this park and most of that time we were killing the multitude of large ants constantly entering the inside of our travel trailer. They were relentless and non-stop and it really put a damper on our stay. There are a few really nice trails but like any Florida park it's way too hot in the summer months to walk around and enjoy. The surround areas of the park and run down and poor with nothing to do outside of the campsite. There is a museum at the Air Force base but like most places it is closed due to the pandemic.

Great place to stop and enjoy the views. Climbing up the tower was neat and gives you a great view. They have many different trails and lots to do.

We went on a camping trip to the park. The park is great for kayaking, paddle boarding, and bike riding. The park is close to the National Seashore and great restaurants. The bathrooms could have been cleaner but definitely need more ventilation! It was SO hot in the bathrooms, it felt 20 degrees cooler when you stepped outside. The park staff were very friendly. The sites are fairly private. We had a great time!

We came here to camp because of social distancing during the pandemic. I’m so glad we did! What a treasure! The park has several neat hikes best done around sunrise or sunset during the summer. There is a 4-story observation tower that we took advantage of two nights for glorious sunsets. On our last night I saw several other trails from the observation area so we plan to return. The campground is quiet, with mostly private sites. We enjoyed taking advantage of staying over night to take the trails. There is a small resident alligator which my 4 year old loved. They rent kayaks, but I saw some campers bring their own & do a lovely sunset kayak trip in the lagoon. There is a private beach along the intercoastal waterway, which we spent time at one day while my son collected snails & hermit crabs. If you don’t mind the 5 minute car ride, you can visit beautiful Johnson’s Beach in the National Seashore on the Gulf of Mexico. We have an America the Beautiful pass, so our visit to Johnson’s Beach was free. It is normally $25 per car. However, there are several free Gulf beaches all around. We fell in love with this park on our last visit & have already scheduled another!
