Scenic Highway 30A, Deer Lake State Park
Walk in the Sand

hiking on beach


Deer Lake State Park is a spectacular place to take a beach walk with the most magnificent dunes that tower along the shoreline and a rare dune lake that is reason in itself to visit this park. Take a walk across the dunes onto the beachfront and walk along the shoreline of these massive dunes.

When the dune lake spills into the Gulf, the brackish waters meet the Gulf with a spectacular blend of waters.

My Daily Walk in the Sand Inspiration & Thoughts

This is one of my favorite state parks with massive dunes and a dune coastal lake that I was lucky enough to visit when the lake was not connecting to the Gulf and again when it was spilling into the Gulf. The dune lakes are a fascinating coastal feature to see and very rare.
