Imagine balmy Florida evenings spent chasing the elusive ghost crabs on the sand, the only other “creature” you may encounter on your nightly walk. Weekend trips inshore to find trout, redfish and flounder or offshore for Spanish mackerel, cobia or even tarpon to serve fresh on your dinner table in the days to come. Your daily “walk” becomes a kayak or paddleboard ride through the nearby marshlands spotting bald eagles, blue herons and more. This is Old Florida at its finest – simplicity and nature blending effortlessly as the backdrop of your SummerCamp Beach life.
Whether you are seeking to relocate full time or build a picturesque family getaway, the SummerCamp Beach community is a secluded, beach-lovers retreat on the Gulf of Mexico on Florida’s Forgotten Coast. Sheltered between state parks and protected forests, it is a nature lover’s dream with pine and oak forest, wildlife habitats, marshlands and a four-mile stretch of pristine white sand beach located just 46 miles south of Tallahassee.
“Our coast is different over here. The rivers cloud our waters making them rich in ecological diversity,” says Forgotten Coast native and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Beach Properties of Florida sales executive John Brown. “I’ve heard it said that 90% of the Gulf grouper are spawned in our sea grass estuaries. Whether that is true or not I can’t say for sure. What I can say is that our inshore and offshore waters are abundant with sea life.”
With half of community land set aside for preservation, SummerCamp Beach homeowners can expect to find likeminded neighbors who appreciate nature and the return to a simpler way of life where quality time connecting with family and friends is of utmost value. The community is surrounded by a national forest, a state forest as well as the St. George Island and Ochlockonee River State Parks. The town of Carrabelle is only ten miles away with shops, grocery stores and a variety of dining establishments characterized by a small-town feel.
The SummerCamp Beach community offers a host of select amenities and a gorgeous coastal design aesthetic that beckons one home. A gulf-front beach club, water sports clubhouse and endless walking trails taking you through this majestic natural setting are a few of the perks of your SummerCamp Beach life. Homesites in this picturesque community begin at just $42,000, allowing you to build the home of your dreams along a rare, untouched stretch of Gulf of Mexico coastline.
