Hosted by Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance, Discover Roads Less Traveled eco-tours will introduce you to some very special places in South Walton.

Campbell Lake is one of the most pristine coastal dune lakes in South Walton. This tour is an opportunity to experience it up-close. We will meet at Tram Stop One in the parking area behind the ranger station and ride down to the Campbell Lake recreation area. After a brief safety discussion, we will launch our canoes and kayaks and tour the lake by following the shoreline. Along the way, we will talk about all the aspects that make these lakes so special and visit some of the most beautiful areas in the park. This is a “behind the scenes” tour of a coastal dune lake.

Be sure to bring your binoculars and a camera as well as water and a snack. Shoes are required as we may leave the water and explore on foot in a few places. All canoes, kayaks, paddles, and floatation devices will be provided. This trip will require several hours of paddling and a little bit of hiking. There is space for three younger-aged children to sit in the canoes, but all other participants must be able to paddle a canoe or kayak. Event subject to cancellation due to high winds or inclement weather.

Space is limited to 9 participants, plus an additional 3 non-paddling children. Minimum of 4.
