Beautiful! Have been coming to PK for years and this was the first time to explore Big Lagoon State Park. A long narrow peninsula, it's just beautiful! You can find a place and feel like you are the only ones there. There were some people, but mainly sandy beach and water!

We visited for the day and to renew our FL state park pass. The staff at the entry gate were friendly and efficient. This is a large park, with boat launch, boardwalks, walking trails, and pavilions. For future reference we checked out the campground and it looks spacious with many sites. Camp sites are $22.30 per night as of April... More

Stayed in the campground for three nights last week. Great Florida state park. Most campsites are shell packed or sandy shell, a few are concrete padded or even grassy. Electric and water at all sites. Dump station at exit. Staff knowledgeable of park and area, quite friendly, oriented to visitor enjoyment. Lots of vegetated space between campsites. This is very...

Camped for an entire week. Campground is not large so make reservations early. Plenty of room between sites. Check the pictues and map on the website to pick your site. Staff and hosts were friendly and helpful. Beach access is to Big Lagoon but the Gulf Island National Seashore is five minutes away if you want ocean side. Bathouses are... More

This beautiful park has several pavilions that would be an excellent spot for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, or even a birthday party. Beautiful views, great walking paths, and very importantly, clean bathrooms!

And if hiking isn’t your... More

We had only a short time at the end of the day in the park, so we drove straight to the end of the road and the tall observation tower. Saw loons, great blue heron, snowy egret, shore birds, kingfisher. Beautiful sunset over the water, but couldn't linger because need to exit the park at sunset. Had time for photos... More
