Florida State Parks – Camp Helen

I stood between Camp Helen State Park’s dune lake and the Gulf of Mexico, feeling the current push against my legs. Lake Powell’s bronze-colored water flowed past me, where it mixed with the salt water along the beach. Schools of minnows clung to the edge of the outfall, while larger fish swam in its fast-moving center. It was the heat of summer along the Florida Panhandle, and I welcomed the cooling waters against my ankles. Dune lakes like Lake Powell only exist in a few places around the world, and I was in the middle of one!
