World’s Smallest Police Station

In the early 1960’s, Carrabelle’s police phone was located in a call box that was bolted to a building at the corner of Hwy. 98 and Tallahassee Street. It has been featured on the television shows “Real People,” “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” and the “Today Show.” We invite you to stop by and take your picture in front of the original World’s Smallest Police Station!

Bald Point State Park

Some of the most picturesque areas along north Florida’s Gulf Coast are found within the park which supports 4,065 upland acres. Located on Alligator Point, where Ochlockonee Bay meets Apalachee Bay, Bald Point offers a multitude of land and water activities. Coastal marshes, pine flatwoods, and oak thickets foster a diversity of biological communities that make the park a popular destination for birding and wildlife viewing. Each fall bald eagles and other migrating raptors, along with monarch butterflies, are commonly seen heading south for the winter. Bald Point offers access to two Apalachee Bay beaches for swimming, sunbathing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and windsurfing. Facilities include a fishing dock and picnic pavilions.
