Welcome to Big Lagoon State Park
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.
Big Lagoon is best known for providing visitors with a memorable saltwater experience. These experiences can range from fishing along the shoreline of the Intracoastal Waterway, launching a kayak or standup paddleboard and taking in the scenery of Grand Lagoon, boating from our boat ramp to swimming in the quiet waters at our West Beach Picnic Area.
For the adventurer in you, begin or end the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail along the quietwater shoreline of the Intracoastal Waterway and beautiful Grand Lagoon. From there, you can paddle your way around the entire state of Florida.
The unique, natural, beautiful setting of the park is popular for large events such as weddings, family reunions, birthday parties and church gatherings.
If you are looking for something a little more relaxing, bring your favorite beach/lawn chair out and watch the shorebirds play and small waves lap the sand along the shoreline.
