Overview

Located approximately 14 miles northwest of Youngstown, Seashell Recreation Area is a small day-use area and primitive campground with access to Econfina Creek.

The most direct route to Seashell is via Porter Pond Road, which is slightly west of the bridge at State Road 20 where it crosses Econfina Creek. Once on Porter Pond Road, travelers will see signage with arrows and mileage at each key intersection to help locate the recreation area.

Seashell is located approximately 7 miles north of State Road 20.

This area earned its name because of the soil layer of limestone along the edge of the creek that has visible prehistoric shell deposits.

Seashell Recreation Area features a picnic table, pedestal grill, and a fire ring. The nearest portable toilets are located at the Walsingham Park campsite and at Devil’s Hole.

Tent-only camping (no RVs) is available by reservation only.

Visitors to Seashell can access the Florida National Scenic Trail through marked trailheads located at Walsingham Camp on Walsingham Bridge Road (slightly south of Seashell) or at Devil’s Hole (slightly north of Seashell). Look for the orange markers to identify the Scenic Trail.

Four other recreation areas are just a short walk from Seashell – Walsingham Park, Walsingham Camp, Longleaf Recreation Area, and Devil’s Hole.
