Blackwater River State Park, about a half-hour drive from Pensacola, offers canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing and camping. The Blackwater's sandy bottom, white beaches and large sandbars contrast with the dark tannic water that gives the river its name.
You'll love strolling along the nature trails through more than 600 acres of undisturbed natural beauty.
