Friday September 18 | Coastal Dune Lakes | 9:00am-10:00am
Topsail Hill Preserve State Park invites you to an informational program on the rare coastal dune lakes found in the area. Two of these lakes can be found inside the protected area of the park. This all ages program will discuss what makes them so unique, what types of plants/animals can be found along the shores and which supported by the ecosystem and what you can do to help. Enter the park through the main gate and park staff will direct you to the clubhouse.
All programs except Breakfast with a Ranger and Americana Under the Stars require a $6.00 entry admission into the park. Call (850)267-8330 for more details.
Topsail Hill Preserve State Park offers a wide variety of natural resources including 3.2 miles of secluded, white sand beaches with majestic dunes over 25 feet tall. Three rare coastal dune lakes provide excellent freshwater fishing. Although boats are not allowed, fishing from the shoreline yields bass, bream, panfish, and catfish. Lakes, pristine beaches, old-growth long leaf pines, sand pine scrub, and a variety of wetlands offer a bird-watching and hiking paradise. Visitors may bike, walk, or enjoy a quick ride to the beach on our timely tram service to swim, fish, sunbathe, or beachcomb. Gregory E. Moore RV resort features a (non-heated) swimming pool and shuffleboard courts. Furnished bungalows are available for weekly stays. A camp store offers a variety of camping items, as well as snacks and drinks.
