Take a Walk Through Old Florida at Camp Helen State Park

Do you love the REAL Florida? Do you love OLD Florida? Then a visit to Camp Helen State Park on the eastern edge of South Walton is a must.

The protected sanctuary is sandwiched between our largest coastal dune lake, Lake Powell, and the gulf. Camp Helen is a true gem not to be missed, with amazing views from high bluffs, rustic foot bridges over still waters, forested trails teeming with wildlife, and a bit of Florida history to boot.

Western Lake Pines at Grayton Beach State Park

South Walton County in the Florida panhandle is home to rare coastal dune lakes that kiss the Gulf of Mexico. Western Lake meets the Gulf at Grayton Beach State Park. The beloved stand of pines between the lake and the Gulf is one of South Walton's most photographed and painted scenes.

South Walton Nature Walks

Nothing is better for your body and your mind than getting back to nature among the trees and flowers, duens, wind, water and wildlife. South Walton's natural beauty is astounding, and the reason folks flock to our coast. The beach is the main draw, but just off the beach some of our favorite spots feel like a world away.
