Watersound Beach Real Estate
The beautiful landscape of WaterSound Beach shifts from brilliant white sandy beaches to dunes typified by drifts of saw palmettos, scrub oaks, hollies and wax myrtles. Moving away from the gulf, the inner dunes give way to sandy pines. A coastal dune lake brimming with flora and fauna, Camp Creek Lake provides WaterSound Beach with another distinctive ecological niche. The lake outfall connects the inland waters with the brilliant emerald waters of the gulf, creating a rare and thriving wildlife habitat.
Named after the freshwater coastal dune lake within its boundaries, Deer Lake State Park, a 1,920-acre area on the western border of WaterSound Beach, offers trail access to the Gulf of Mexico through a magnificent dune field and a pristine section of beach. Rich with diverse plant and wildlife, Deer Lake State Park boasts beach dunes, mesic flatwoods, sandhills, scrubs, basin swamps, depression marshes, dome swamps, a coastal dune lake, blackwater streams, estuarine tidal creeks and unconsolidated marine substrates.
