Big Lagoon State Park

Big Lagoon State Park is more than a campground. It has  655 acres of beauty to explore. The park is located in Pensacola just across the bridge from Perdido Key. Visitors to the park can enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, picnic areas and much more for outdoor adventures.

Our family visits this park often for kayaking, paddleboarding, picnicking, geocaching, hiking and camping. The grounds and facilities are well kept which is another plus.

For those who enjoy viewing nature there are many trails, boardwalks, and an observation tower that overlooks the lagoon. This park is an excellent place for bird watchers.

Big Lagoon State Park has a nice kayak trail that weaves its way through salt marshes. There is a large variety of wildlife at Big Lagoon State Park to enjoy. If you don’t have your own kayak, the state park rents kayaks and paddleboards.
