Beyond Destin: Pitt Springs Recreation Area

Published April 7, 2015
Pitt Springs Recreation Area is within Econfina Creek Water Management Area is perfect for a laid-back afternoon of picnicking, hiking and swimming.

Instead of the long hike, we followed the paved walkway and boardwalk and found a dock into Econfina Creek, and an overlook of Sylvan Spring. An informational panel explained that Sylvan Spring is not a swimming hole because the aquifer beneath it is unstable. However, Econfina Creek and Pitt Spring are swimming areas and both have dock accesses.

The park is free to the public and open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily from April through September. For more information call 539-5999.
