Camp Helen State Park is a unique area surrounded on three sides by the Gulf of Mexico, Phillips Inlet and Lake Powell. The diversity provided by the three different bodies of water creates a unique habitat for wildlife. The more than 180-acre park contains maritime hammocks, freshwater wetlands, sand pine scrub, coastal dunes, as well as a salt marsh. It’s one of the favorite beaches near Panama City for nature lovers. The lodge at Camp Helen and its cottages offer a look at how tourists spent their vacations in the 1940s. Be prepared to hike a bit to enjoy this park’s wonderful trails and beaches. Fishing for both fresh and saltwater species has traditionally been popular at Camp Helen.
