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.

I'd give the campground 5 stars if the bathrooms had a better fan or airflow and the mosquitoes were less. Superior ADA accommodations! You can borrow a powered beach chair for free! It works great on the sand and saved so much effort. Bring strong bug spray like deep woods off and keep it with you at all times! Skip and all rangers were very nice and made our stay the best.

I've always loved coming here as a child. Now that I'm grown with my own children, I couldn't wait to come back. It is still as beautiful as I remember. It's never too crowded, plenty of room for all. Your ticket is good all day long so if you need to leave & come back, you don't have to pay to get back in, or stop on the way out to get a special stamp or sticker.

Friendly, knowledgeable rangers, clean & beautiful state park and campground. Ranger Skip hosted an informative astronomy lesson at 9:45P that enabled us to look at the rising Strawberry full moon, Venus, Jupiter(and it's four moons) & the super bright Saturn that appeared next to the moon, through his telescope. Skip is promoting that end of the island as a "dark-sky" ...it was a spectacular view of the bright stars, milky-way and shooting stars. The only place I have seen the sunrise & full moon setting at the same time. It was a beautiful show.!!

Enjoyed the 6 night stay very much, but I have to say the shower house really needs and update. Visited the park the early part of August and it was extremely hot. The restrooms and showers are not air-conditioned and it has a small attic fan pulling very little air through. The mosquito population is very high and they had the restroom populated very well. Be sure to take your mosquito repellant with you if you like sitting outside. The Beach area is very nice and easily accessible if you have a slight disability walking. I can't walk long distances, but I was able to make it to the Gulf and enjoy the Gulf breeze and a little sun.

This is the best Florida has to offer. Everyone is friendly and helpful, the park is never packed, just beautiful. I highly recommend! Most of the time during the week there's hardly anyone around, so enjoying the beautiful beaches is easy! I highly recommend!
