Miles of undeveloped beaches on this barrier island provide the perfect setting for this park, which offers ample opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, canoeing, boating, hiking, camping and nature study. Two natural boat ramps provide access to the bay for small boats. Anglers can fish for flounder, redfish, sea trout, pompano, whiting, Spanish mackerel and other fish off the beach or in the bay. Few parks offer better opportunities for shelling. Sea turtles and shore birds such as the snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer and willet nest in the park during the summer. The park has six large picnic shelters equipped with grills, tables and nearby restrooms. The campground features 60 campsites with water, electric, a central dump station and two bathhouses. A primitive campsite can be accessed by a 2.5-mile trail or by canoe or kayak. A primitive group camp area is available for scouts and other organized groups. Annual special events include the Coffee in the Campground from November through March, Coastal Cleanups in September and weekly interpretive programs in the fall. Other events and ranger programs are available throughout the rest of the year. Located on St. George Island, 10 miles southeast of Eastpoint, off U.S. 98.

Lots and lots of beach and some nice trails. Fishing looked great (pompano were running). Both primitive and RV spots. Well-managed, clean, easy and a quiet spot for long walks and afternoon napping.

Beautiful Island. White sugar sand. I would have given 5 stars but the bugs prevented me. The gnats (no see ums) were terrible. They came thru the screens in our camper. 30 plus bites. Make sure you bring bug spray!

Wonderful day beach fishing on the east end. Although not the most productive expedition my husband and I had lots of fun.
