Camp Helen State Park

Just across South Walton’s eastern edge, adjoining Inlet Beach, rests Camp Helen State Park.

Bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Powell (one of Florida’s largest coastal dune lakes), Camp Helen whispers the promise of a very relaxing day getaway. You can wile away the day in this 180-acre park, swimming, beach-combing, hiking and fishing (both freshwater and saltwater).

Once a corporate retreat for an Alabama textile mill (from 1945 until 1987), Camp Helen’s rich with history and is also home to a restored historical building which is available to tour.

Camp Helen’s an excellent spot for family reunions, company retreats, or just an afternoon picnic with the kids.
