Welcome to Tyndall AFB Outdoor Recreational Program
Crooked Island East Beach Access is now CLOSED to all foot traffic and vehicle parking due to construction to fix the access road, parking lot and boardwalk.
Enjoy! And be safe.
As always, DOGS ARE PROHIBITED ON TYNDALL BEACHES. This is to ensure the safety of our many endangered species.
ATTENTION HUNTERS! The 2020-2021 deer season has ended. We had a very successful season and we reached our designated deer quota early. Thanks for a great season! READ THIS!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
A Recreational Permit is required by all non-DoD personnel, age 16 years and older, to access all Tyndall AFB property, including Crooked Island Beach, Davis Beach Boat Launch, Buck Beach, DuPont Bridge Boat Launch, Bonita Bay, Farmdale Bayou, Strange Bayou and Redfish Point.
DoD personnel are defined as Active Duty Military, Reserve, National Guard, DoD Civilians, Retired Military, Retired DoD Civilians, their dependents, and DoD Contractors with a current DoD identification card with base wide access. Individuals who are members of the public and are not affiliated with the DoD are herein referred to as non-DoD.
Non-DoD members wishing to participate in recreational activities within the West Unit (inside of the guarded gated areas) require a Defense Biometric Identification Data Systems (DBIDS) identification card, which is issued upon completion of application and background check by the Security Forces Visitor Control Center (open Monday-Friday, 0730-1630), located at the intersection of Highway 98 and Sabre Drive. However, this DBIDS requirement does not apply to areas outside of the controlled perimeter.
NOTE: DBIDS will only be issued to those individuals once they purchase a recreational permit.
