    WALTON COUNTY AGAIN PROVIDES FREE DAY-USE ADMISSION TO STATE PARKS

    Summer visitors to South Walton will once again be able to enjoy free day-use admission to Grayton Beach State Park and Topsail Hill Preserve State Park from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

    The Walton County Tourist Development Council is paying the cost of entry for day-use visitors in order to increase available parking for beachgoers during the peak visitation season, as well as raise awareness of the variety of eco-tourism activities South Walton offers. This year marks the sixth year of admission coverage for Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the fourth for Grayton Beach State Park.

    “This is our fourth summer covering day-use admission to both state parks,” says Visit South Walton Director of Communications David Demarest. “It benefits everyone, visitors and locals alike, that during the summer we effectively add two additional regional beach accesses – equipped with parking, picnic and restroom facilities, and a tremendous amount of natural beauty for guests to enjoy. This also lessens the pressure on any one stretch of beach.”

    The free day-use admission is available to visitors during normal operating hours, generally 8 a.m. to sunset. The official kick-off of the event is on Friday of Memorial Day weekend, and free day-use admission extends through Labor Day.

    This is an awesome benefit! :clap: I used Topsail Hill several times last year. Plenty of parking and the tram will take you to the beach. It's also beautiful out there!
