Blackwater River State Park, Milton, FL
($4/car). We walked down to the “River/Beach” area, a big sand bar along the river, which seems to be the main area a family might spend the day with grills and bathrooms available. It’s a little odd to be on a white sand beach we no sea shells. We then went back to the entrance to park and walk the Chain of Lakes Trail (1.5 mile loop, 29’ elevation) This trail starts along the river with white sand under foot, passes some oxbow ponds with very roots footing and ends through a forest of longleaf pine and turkey oaks.
