Who doesn't like gazing up at the stars on a clear night?  At Eglin reservation, there are several campsites available for nature enthusiasts who want to get out and listen to the wild.  In the early morning, wake up to the dawn chorus of birds.  At night, fall asleep to the gentle hum of the breeze through the trees.  Enjoy some delicious campfire cuisine: dinner on the grill and gooey smores over the campfire.  

Campsite at Duck Pond.
