Drop some Big Lagoon knowledge on us.
Saw lots of wildlife, and the land is beautiful. Great facilities. Had to reserve a month in advance in June. No white-sand beaches, but everyone was really nice. Firewood is $5. The lots are big, but most don't have natural tree shade. 8/10
History of Big Lagoon State Park
Big Lagoon State Park derives its name from the bordering body of water along its southern shore. Natural communities, ranging from tidal salt marshes to pine flatwoods, attract a wide variety of birds, especially during spring and fall migrations. Valued as wetlands, marshes attract and provide important habitat for many birds and animals. Foxes, raccoons, deer and possums are often observed in the park. Great blue herons, king rails and other waterfowl are daily visitors. Upland portions of the park provide refuge for cardinals, towhees, brown thrashes and nuthatches. This land became a state park in 1977.
