ABOUT THE PARK
Camp Helen comprises 185 acres. The park is situated on the southwestern shoreline of Lake Powell, the largest coastal dune lake in the Panhandle, measuring 174 acres. The lake is sporadically connected to the nearby Gulf of Mexico via Phillips Inlet, which is usually plugged.
Three of the park boundaries are bodies of water: 2 miles of Lake Powell shoreline to the east and north and ½ mile of Gulf of Mexico shoreline to the south. The park contains ten distinct natural communities: the beach, beach dune, coastal grasslands, maritime hammock, mesic flatwoods, scrub, wet flatwoods, depression marsh, salt marsh, and coastal dune lake.
