Even though Florida is primarily known for its remarkable beaches, Florida state parks are a treasure of their own.  Big Lagoon State Park is located on the mainland, just North of Perdido Key, separated by the Intracoastal Waterway.  The park is 655 acres of natural beauty filled with flourishing vegetation, all sizes of wildlife and outdoor activities for everyone.

For ease of exploring, the park is navigated with boardwalks and nature trails, surrounded by mature pine and oak trees, saw palmettos, and saltwater marsh.  An observation tower at the East Beach provides a stunning view overlooking Big Lagoon, the Intracoastal Waterway and across to the Gulf Island National Seashore.  Along the way, you will see various types of wildlife.  Osprey and many other birds migrate through the park and rumor has it that an alligator has moved into Long Pond.

With a one of a kind amphitheater and multiple pavilions throughout, Big Lagoon State Park makes for a great outdoor location for family gatherings and larger events.  The amphitheater will accommodate a few hundred guests and provides a stage and lighting while the pavilions are ideal for picnics, relaxation and shade.  Play grounds and additional facilities are situated so that regardless of age, everyone will enjoy their day!

Big Lagoon State Park has become a hotspot for fishing and canoeing as the park has prime access to the Intracoastal and the hidden waterway that connects to Grand Lagoon.  This Park has it all, camping facilities, boat ramp, extra amenities, and all of the outdoor adventure you could ask for.  The enjoyment at Big Lagoon State Park will be endless!
