Becks Fish Camp and Wildlife Refuge

Becks fish camp and wildlife refuge

Tucked away, not far from Pensacola, is Becks Fish Camp and Wildlife Refuge. The Fish Camp and Refuge has over 420 acres. Though mostly undeveloped, Ted Brown is seeking developers to make this a top notch destination to outdoor enthusiasts.

The property is located on Becks lake which is actually a lagoon that joins the Escambia River. This is an ideal location for catching bass, catfish, and other fresh water fish. Beck’s fish camp offers bank fishing and also has boat ramps to launch your own boat.

Becks Fish Camp and Wildlife Refuge is also an ideal place to kayak- bring your own or rent one from their fleet of kayaks. The bayou looks very inviting to explore. Live Oaks stand laced with Spanish Moss. Large cypress trees line the banks creating a beautiful southern setting. Kayak from the lagoon to the Escambia River or simply enjoy exploring the lagoon.

For those that love keeping their feet on solid ground, Becks has been creating hiking trails and picnic areas. Make your way back to the pavilion and picnic area and you’ll discover a beautiful secluded place to take in nature. There at the picnic area you’ll discover benches along the lagoon to enjoy the surrounding beauty. You’ll enjoy looking at the beautiful cypress trees. Also available in this area is primitive camping and shore fishing.

    I always like to hear about more fish camps. I didn’t know they were as big a part of Florida culture as they are.

      @Suwannee Refugee There are a lot of fish camps around. I don’t do much fishing but I would like to take my kayak to Becks Fish Camp and do some exploring. It looks beautiful. Do you fish?
