Visitor questions:

Question: Are there restrooms close to Fort Pickens fishing areas? My Dad is 85 and loves to surf fish but we need a bathroom that is close. We are trying to avoid crowds when we fish and Fort Pickens fits the bill but bathrooms are an issue.
Asked by Dale Clark over 1 year ago
Answer: Unfortunately, there are no restrooms in close proximity to the fishing areas on Fort Pickens Beach. Also, frequent visitors say that this place is pretty crowded because the nearby campground is always full. As an alternative, please check the Navarre Beach fishing pier ( The pier is very long and has enough place for everyone, and many people report that there are public restrooms right at the beginning of the pier. For more details, contact the pier administration at (850)710-32-39. Wishing your Dad to have a large fish haul!
