This place is wonderful. The beaches, the hiking trails, all just wonderful. The beaches are usually quiet with not much people.

I love to hike and explore all things nature, but I just couldn't get into this place. Lots of scrubby brush...not sure where any of the 'live oaks' were as I didn't see anything. Trails were so so....sandy, but uninteresting.

Since our son is in a wheelchair, the path that is accessible is on the side that has the education building. The path is .8 miles long and takes you... More

Me and my wife come here often to get away and enjoy the nature trail and the fresh air. very relaxing and worth the trip from Pace. A historical part of our lives that we will always cherish.

The water in this area is dirty looking. Great for fishing, but no beach area and the water is filled with seaweed. The land area is clean, the building is closed on the weekends.

If you are looking for a calm beach are for your toddler, this is the place. Not your typical beach but a great alternative to big waves.

Originally set aside to preserve the majestic, live oak trees for the masts on ships, this historical area is a must see! From the beautiful sugar-white sand beaches of Navarre & Pensacola beaches along Santa Rosa Sound, the Inter-coastal waterway and Gulf to Fort Pickens historically preserved bunkers, this area is magnificent!

Not much there except picnic areas and a walk on the sound. The boy scouts camp there but not open for camping for the public. Stop there for a great view of the sound.
