Camp Helen State Park

Camp Helen State Park consists of undisturbed dunes bordering Phillips Inlet, Lake Powell and the Gulf of Mexico. Although Camp Helen is small - only 180 acres - its goals are huge. In partnership with Gulf Coast Community College, the Florida park system is working to set up an Environmental Education Center. Together, these entities will combine ecological and historical interpretation, preservation of habitats, education, recreation and beach access. Swimming, hiking, picnicking, boating and fishing.
