Camped at Big Lagoon for several days and had an amazing time. Also took advantage of their kayak rentals which you shouldn't miss out on!

We have stayed at Big Lagoon State Park on 3 separate occasions. Some of the campsites are really nice; others, not so much. If you are going to stay here be sure to make early reservations during peak times. We have a 32' fifth wheel that fit on a site rated for 30'. Some of the sites are rated larger... More

We visited here one day during the week, were on the way to the beach but saw the sign for this park and decided to give this place a try. The kids beach was nice, shallow water but it was VERY warm. We liked the picnic tables with the grills good idea for another day. The board walk and the... More

Kayaking! They have kayaks, canoes, and SUP boards for rent for a decent price, for up to 4 hours. Beautiful beaches which were almost deserted even though we were there 4th of July week. Nice facilities.

I was excited to visit Big Lagoon Sate Park but was slightly disappointed. It wasn't as big as I expected. We visited weekday so not crowded. Impressed with the number of groves though. Trails looked nice and even though we didn't bike, it looked like a very nice place to bike through.

I saw more birds on Johnson Beach and the beach was much cleaner. There is lots of trash floating in the lagoon and very little wildlife. I was so disappointed and so was my family.

We have made Big Lagoon our family vacation spot for the past 5 years. We've stayed in several sites, all partial shade. The bathrooms have never been gross, always very clean. Also have lots of opportunities to watch wildlife- even have an alligator that you might get to see! This place is a hidden gem!

We saw many birds, Blue Heron, Yellow billed Cuckoos, and Loons. Good boat dock and launch. Picnic area. Park admission is reasonable. You can walk in the park, too.

Had a great time camping here! Easy access to beaches, canoeing & kayaking. Clean bathrooms, very scenic & safe! Next to air museum, got to see fighter jets including Blue Angels regularly, which was cool. Johnson Beach is less than 15 mins away for some nice beaches.

This park has lots to explore w/ plenty of hiking trails, boardwalks, salt marshes and the observation tower. The camping areas are nice w/ clotheslines, fire rings and picnic tables. All have water and electricity also. Although some sites were fairly close to each other,they are all surrounded by palmetto & other thick bushes/trees. We loved the fact that there... More
