Did we say we love FamCamps? Yes, we did. And our stay at Blue Angels Park in Pensacola reaffirmed our belief. There are two campgrounds associated with the Blue Angels. We stayed “off base” at the Blue Angels Campground on Bronson Road. This area includes a primitive campsite as well as, Anchor Cove and Battlecreek Row.

And while our original RV, a Class C Sunseeker 2250, offered us a cavernous storage area in the “double bunk” over the cab; our Class B+ is a bit more limited.
