    Hello, am looking at bringing my pop up down to fort pickens campground. My wife is a beach nut, and I was wondering how close to the ocean/beach are you from loop A campsites? Are you able to walk to beach access? Can you hear the ocean, or is it a little further away than that. I drove by the campground a few years ago but didn't go in and loop around. Thanks.

    The entrance from Loop A to the ocean is 370 yards. I live slightly more then a mile from the ocean and at times I can hear it so yes you might can hear the ocean from 400-500 yards away.

    although I have never camped there I have driven thru the campground and I would say yes you can walk
    to the beach access. the water is less than one quarter mile from the closest sites, and provided the
    waves are large enough I'm sure that you could hear them.

    Loop A is in a short walk to the beach. Try to make reservations very early. Most of the loop A sites are already reserved. Good Luck
