Big Lagoon State Park
Welcome to Big Lagoon State Park
Sitting on the northern shoreline of its namesake, Big Lagoon State Park's 704 upland acres separate the mainland from Perdido Key and the Gulf of Mexico. Natural communities, ranging from saltwater tidal marshes to pine flatwoods attract a wide variety of birds, especially during the spring and fall migrations. Big Lagoon is a gateway site for the Great Florida Birding Trail and the start of the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail, which extends around the entire state. The intracoastal beaches, shallow bays, nature trails and scrubby flatwoods offer splendid opportunities for nature study. The park beckons visitors to enjoy the Real Florida with opportunities to picnic, hike, camp, swim, fish, boat, kayak, standup paddleboard, and canoe. Crabbing in the shallow waters of Big Lagoon is a popular activity as well. Stop by and enjoy some time in the great outdoors here at Big Lagoon State Park, you might even see some rare wildlife.
