The youth camp ground is probably one of the nicest places we have ever camped. Grassy area for tents. Pavilion with picnic tables. Bath house with outside showers. Right next to shallow water for kids to swim and play in. We will definitely be back.

We went to check out on of the parks that are a part of the Gulf Shores National Seashore. It was very shared for the most part and the breeze was awesome for late August down south.

An absolutely gorgeous reservation. Naval live oak trees are one of the most beautiful trees. The whole place has been kept in it's natural state.

The Jackson Trail in Gulf Breeze is a great day hike through live oak scrub with several views of Pensacola Bay - and of course, the giant sand slope (bluff) . Park by the Gulf Breeze hospital and start the trail loop.
