Is that really a question? Camping is so much more than sleeping in a tent on the ground. When I think of camping, I remember good times. I always enjoy spending quality time with the family around a camp fire making delicious s’mores. There are all sorts of places to camp around Bay County. Need a little more comfort than a tent can provide? Bring your RV, camper, or try out renting a cabin. Here are some great places to build lifelong family memories.
My family has a few favorite places to camp in our county. I think their #1 choice is the amazing St. Andrew State Park. We enjoy fishing, swimming, biking and so much more.
Another favorite is Blue Springs Recreation Area located off Hwy 20 in northern Bay County. At this beautiful spring we have so much fun! Choose to be lazy and lay around on large tubes or kayaking to explore much further into the creek area. Don’t forget your mask and snorkel to dive underwater and join the amazing underwater life. It is a whole new world!
Looking for a more primitive camp site? Take a little drive up some long dirt roads to a very large lake. Here at White Oak Landing you’ll get great opportunities. Porter Pond may have a small sounding name but, there are plenty of places to explore with your kayak. Bring your boat out for a relaxing time of fishing. At night enjoy great quality time with the family while taking in the big beautiful sky view.
Not into primitive camping? Want something with a little more comfort? At Pineglen RV Park located on Panama City Beach you’ll be close to the Emerald Coast’s white sandy beach. Here they have all the amenities you could ask for. This quiet retreat has a relaxing view, fishing, and it’s location has you close to restaurants, golf courses, and shopping malls.
Summer vacation is quickly coming to an end. This is a perfect way to get the whole family together. Even after school begins it is always fun to take a weekend off. Reap the benefits of the outdoors. Fresh air, easy exercise, lots of relaxing, and good quality family times and memories.
