Beautiful Florida spot with great camping spots. Lots of greenery and good separation of sites. Every space is sand and a bit rustic but still a wonderful experience. The nearby Navy air base is pretty active and it's great to see the powerful air machines...More

Big Lagoon is one of our favorite places to camp near the beach. Private sites & clean, modern bathrooms. This year we had the surprise of raccoons stalking our campground. This family of 4 are certainly not afraid of humans.

This park has some trails that might be worth walking, I didn't take them because 5 minutes after paying the entrance fee it began raining. Other than that, nothing to see here. Don't bother.

I went Kayaking for the first time over Labor Day. The man who helped me with my rental was very knowledgeable and helpful in making sure I was prepared to go on my adventure. He also had great food when I returned.

Big Lagoon is an interesting place. You have the Lagoon itself that is pretty cool. Then you have the swamp areas that you can walk through on the boardwalk. The kids loved the swamp and getting to see a small 2 foot alligator!

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
