Fodor's Review

Next to Panama City Beach's coastal dune lake, this former getaway for employees of Avondale Textile Mills still has a few of the original cabins and a lodge that is popular for weddings and meetings. The bucolic surroundings are good for bird-watching, but the main draw may be the beautiful, powdery beach and the remnants of a pier, featured in Luke Bryan's music video for his song "Roller Coaster." It's a half-mile hike down to the beach, but you're almost guaranteed to find some peace. Amenities: parking. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
