We camped 2 nights here. It's obviously a well-thought out campsite. There's ample room for both tents and RV's. I don't know if all the sites supply it, but our spot had power and water. Bathrooms were close but unobtrusive. There are lots of pavilions...More

Unfortunately we visited the park on an extremely windy day. Did some kayaking within the tall grass areas, but when we tried to go out into the intercoastal waterway it was way too windy. This would be a fun place to kayak on a calmer...More

We have visited before and love to see the natural area. There is an observation tower that we climbed again on this trip. Boardwalks, manicured trails and rough sand trails. The wildlife never disappoints. Want to come back and kayak here.

There’s nothing wrong with this little state park, but then again there’s really nothing super special about it either. It’s kinda small actually - especially for a place called BIG lagoon - lol. Anyhow, it’s reasonable, it’s got some trails, and some decent camping spots...More

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
