Southern Living Idea House

RiverCamps at Crooked Creek

Location: West Bay, Florida
Client: The St. Joe Land Company
Project Size: 1,800 acres 
Scope: Master planning and detailed Site Design for entrances, clubhouse, and model homes

The program for the RiverCamps development included 400 home sites, a River House (with swimming pool, grill and pavilion, a fitness center, and a boat ramp with access to the Gulf of Mexico), and a variety of recreational amenities.  Although more than 850 acres of the site were preserved wetlands, less than 5 of them were actually impacted by the design and construction.  In conjunction with the client, EcoPlan sought to create a community of ‘cabins in the woods.’  The many groupings of cabins sit against either bay, marsh, river, wetland, or ‘grass lakes.’  Each enclave is also connected to a system of interpretative trails showcasing the native ecosystems.
