Road to Fort Pickens,Florida

Weather Channel shows rivers flooding or near flooding in the area near Fort Pickens in Florida. Does anyone know about the road on Santa Rosa Island that goes to the COE Fort Pickens campground? We've been told that the next time the road to this campground washes out, it will not be rebuilt and our favorite Florida campground will close.

Not sure where that is, really. We are going to St Rosa RV park in Navarre next week. If it is close to there, we can go check it out for you.

It would be great if you could check it out. It's just across that long bay bridge and at the other end of the island. Interesting history if you've never been there. And please let me know what you think of Santa Rosa park. If Ft Pickens closes, we'll have to find a new place to stay.

We will. I've never been there, so we want to go exploring. Only staying two nights, but will try and get down there.

I wouldn't be surprised if it were closed. We were there a couple of weeks ago, before the torrential rains. The roadway is very low, probably a phone call would be in order. Good Luck.

This is what i just found posted on their web site

  • Fort Pickens Road Conditions

    The Fort Pickens road is closed except for registered campers, due to sand covering sections of the road caused by heavy rains. Information on road conditions call 850-934-2656.
