Florida's and Mississippi's barrier islands abound with many natural wonders. There are extraordinary places where you can explore and enjoy these pristine areas. This guide will help you find the ideal spot to pitch your tent, enjoy a picnic, cast a line, frolic in the surf, hike a trail, or investigate plant and animal life. It includes detailed descriptions of more than ten protected areas on barrier islands within the national seashore - places where development is prohibited, motorized vehicles are banned, and wilderness areas have been established. Within each listing you'll find the best time of year to visit, facilities, fees and recreational activities, RV sites and campgrounds, nearby points of interest, and detailed maps of each area.
