Between the Gulf shore state park in Alabama and Big Lagoon state park in Florida, I would say Big Lagoon wins hands down for camping, beach access and tranquility. One can chill out at the InterCoastal Waterway beach itself with the super calm water, or...More

Edged up against the heavily commercialized coast is the Big Lagoon State Park. Located only a few minutes away from some popular attractions, this park provides contrast to the retail area. There are a lot of outdoor activities to do here. We especially enjoyed the...More

It rained our entire trip and Big Lagoon is a park that really is better with good weather. The campsites are very private (you cannot see your neighbor for the bushes, trees and shrubs). The bathhouses are clean and well kept.

Yellow biting flies are a nuisance. Not even sure if bug repellent even works. Bites are extremely painful. Local said they are bad in May and June.

Spent 5 nights here and enjoyed every day! Clean bathrooms and well manicured sites. Hiking, biking and eating at Fisherman’s Corner. By far the best meal during our voyage across the country!

A very nice way to get out and check things out for only a $6 fee to get in. Bring a picnic lunch or eat at the hot dog cart that is there. Such a fun day.

This is for those who enjoy hiking/walking on sandy trials. There are a few boardwalks along the trails along with lookout towers to climb for a view of the waters. Camping, picnicking, and kayak rentals are available.

We enjoyed a walk through this park looking at the marsh. The path and the restrooms were well-maintained. We climbed the tower and had a great view of boat traffic on the intercoastal waterway.

You probably should call the hotel to be sure. They are very helpful. I don't remember seeing any pets inside the lodge, however.

The bike riding would be good. There is a road that makes a loop around the park.

if they follow the foot path in the camp ground they will come to the beach within a few minutes, the main Beach at Perdido is a bit further and I would suggest a drive to the main Beach at Perdido as not allot of side walks... More
