Malakai 🏕 different by design

6 sites · Lodging, Tents12 acres · Milton, FL
Welcome to Malakai campgrounds different by design 🏕 I purchased this land several years ago after a loss of a child a daughter her named was (little jo) JoLisa Marie Roadcap , it was a life changing moment, teaching me that family and enjoying of life is what it all about... so I want to welcome you here to Malakai for a peaceful and relaxing time, it's even a place that may help you heal from life hardships... At 5:30 just as the Sun comes up it is time for you to go out on to the deck and listen to the birds song 🎵 . As the Sun starts to rise on a new day ✨️ dozens of species of birds from the Great American Bald Eagle , To the endangered woodpecker, The blue herrings, bluebirds(we have mating pair that comes every year) blue jays, mocking birds, doves and several other species and occasionally a couple small black bears like walking through, we want you to have a peaceful and relaxing stay here while you visit everything,here at Garson Point were several species of carnivorous plants grow wild and our beaches have much to offer. It's official -- after 4 years of politics we are officially a park and a preserve.....9 acres of 🚶‍♂️ trails 👣 we are still constructing trails by hand I believe this place has a spiritual strength to people of all nations History of our location Count De Galvez awarded a land grant on Garcon Point to Antonio Garzon following his 1781 Siege of Pensacola in consideration of “his good services rendered as an interpreter to the Indians of Pensacola." The grant was held for 35 years before Maria Garzon, who survived husband Antonio, sold the land they called Garzon’s Point to Joseph (Jose) Bonifay. The land uses were favorable for cattle grazing and turpentining through the 1800s. Many more pioneer families moved into the area and began their own business in the booming industrial opportunities of western Florida. It came to be known as Yellow River Marsh State Buffer Preserve on June 12, 2000, when it was purchased by the state of Florida to protect rare and environmentally sensitive lands, plants and animals. Through generous donations, Preservation 2000 and the Florida Forever Program, more land was added to protect contiguous habitat of the Garcon Ecosystem. Today Yellow River Marsh Preserve State Park provides recreational opportunities for hiking and nature study along the Great Florida Birding Trail among rare and endemic plant species and within one of Florida’s oldest multi-cultural frontiers.The preserve is located in Santa Rosa County on Garcon Point, which separates Escambia Bay from Blackwater Bay. Nearly 20 rare and endangered species of plants 🪴 and animals make their homes along the bay and its wet prairies, dome swamps and flatwoods.

Camping near Crestview guide

Overview

Crestview is a Florida Panhandle city with access to rivers, forests, and Gulf Coast beaches. The area’s rolling hills and deciduous trees are a major change of scenery from central and South Florida, especially during fall foliage. It’s close to the Blackwater River State Park and the longleaf pine forests of Alabama’s Conecuh National Forest, as well as about 40 minutes from Fort Walton Beach and the Emerald Coast section of the Gulf of Mexico, where numerous parks offer beachside camping on white-sand shores. Set on I-10 and known as Hub City for the convergence of highways here, Crestview is a convenient pass-through town, but the camping options in its surrounding area make it a worthy stop in itself.

Where to go

Crestview Surrounds

The Yellow and Shoal rivers both border Crestview, with their confluence just south of town. The nearby Yellow River Water Management Area has boat launches for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing access. Crestview—and DeFuniak Springs, further east—both have multiple RV parks and RV resorts with full hookups and wifi for campers to choose from.

Blackwater River State Park

At Blackwater River State Park, you can paddle or float down the lush Blackwater River at a leisurely pace, enjoying its many sand beaches. Kayak, canoe, and tube rentals are available on-site. There’s also a campground with RV and tent sites featuring picnic tables, fire rings, and full hookups.

Ponce De Leon Springs State Park

Although not open for camping, you can swim or snorkel year-round in crystal-clear 68°F spring water at Ponce De Leon Springs State Park, just 45 minutes east of Crestview.

Gulf Shore Beaches

The Emerald Coast section of the Gulf of Mexico is due south of Crestview. Henderson Beach State Park, Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, and Grayton Beach State Park are all excellent beach parks with campgrounds in this area. For day trips, the Gulf Islands National Seashore’s Santa Rosa Area, including the Opal Beach Complex, is also an excellent choice.

When to go

Crestview has great fall, winter, and spring camping. Winters tend to be the busiest camping season, when camping reservations should be made early. With high temps, high humidity, and high precipitation—not to mention hurricane season on the Gulf Coast—summer tent camping is a challenge in Crestview.
