Escape to Gulf State Park

With so many different ecosystems to explore, the diversity of plant and animal life to see is impressive – bald eagles, osprey, eastern cottontails, loggerhead sea turtles, broad-headed skinks, gopher tortoises, alligators, sea oats, gulf bluestem, white-topped pitcher plants, and longleaf pine, just to name a few.

Escape to Chewacla: Mountain Bikes, Campsites, & College Football (Part II)

I’ve always loved Chewacla for its showcase of CCC handiwork, gorgeous views of oak-hickory forests, and overall welcoming feel, but I’ve never really gotten to spend more than a few hours at the park. Staying five days in one of the incredible CCC-built cabins was really a treat.
