Blackwater Paradise

12 sites · RVs, Tents7 acres · Milton, FL
This property is where I grew up and had as a neighbor a Creek Native American whose family and tribe originally lived, hunted, fished, and camped this property.  Additionally the East West driveway is where the original "old stagecoach road" was long before Johnson Road, the old brick road (now a biking and walking trail), highway 90, and ultimately Interstate 10 each an iteration of East West mass transit through Northwest Florida.  With 200 of feet of Blackwater river and bounded on the South and West by a wet weather pond and stream,  we have everything from hawks, owls, and woodpeckers, bees, dragon flies, the occasional deer, and frequent raccoon.  There are crickets,  and symphonies of nature like the wet night frog songs makes ours a veritable "island" wooded paradise.  Come relax in our neck of the woods all while being close to shopping, entertainment, state parks, sugar white beaches, surfing, boating, sailing, skiing, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving .  Whether you drive in, or fly in  commercially at Pensacola International Airport or your own plane at nearby Peter Price Field you'll find a relaxing evening nestled in historic Milton Florida.
