Explore the Panhandle’s Camp Helen State Park

by carlislewillard

Sitting on the far western border of Panama City Beach, Camp Helen State Park is an ecological gem. From pristine beaches to scenic nature trails that reveal a rare coastal dune lake, the Florida park is truly unique.

Surrounded by water on three sides, the park features five distinct natural communities – mesic flatwoods, scrub oak, basin swamp, depression marsh and marine unconsolidated substrate – that you can explore in just a short walk.

Though there is no camping allowed, visitors enjoy fishing, boating, kayaking, grilling and swimming. History tours are available the first Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.
