Point Washington State Forest Opens New Campground to the Public

News

A new campground has opened this weekend at Point Washington State Forest in Santa Rosa Beach. 

Eastern Lake Campground 2 opened on Friday and is a primitive campsite located on Eastern Lake just 9 miles south of Freeport.

The new site features a floating dock with access to canoes and kayaks, multiple trails for mountain biking and hiking, and a primitive camping experience. 

The campsites do not have water or electric hookups but do share a communal outhouse that helps contribute to a more rustic camping experience. 

Other activities at the new site include fishing, picnicking, bird watching, wildlife viewing and photography.
