“Visit the REAL Florida”

Reviewed Jul 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Feb 2018 was my 3rd trip to this park. I love it. I stayed 7-10 days (I don’t remember) total THIS year. There are 1 or 2 “walk in” sites...if you are lucky, once you get one, you can stay up to 2 weeks. This is NOT advertised. I’d booked for 3 days after which a “walk in” became available. Nice site, too. There is a $6.75 reser... more

“Beautiful, lots of wildlife”

Reviewed Jul 22, 2018

Overall Rating

The other reviews pretty much have it covered...I'd just like to add you have to be prepared for the full Florida wildlife experience if you are going to stay here. Expect deer, armadillos, rats, tons of mosquitos, birds and maybe even snakes/water moccasins to wander through your site at some point. We never had an alligator visit but... more

“Great park to get away ”

Reviewed May 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Beautiful park, sites are right on the beach and the beach is beautiful. Only issue I have is THERE IS NO CELL SERVICE in the park. I use Verizon and our stay was in May 2018. I had to drive to the end of the island, about a 20 minute drive, to use the phone. I know I should be camping and not on my phone, but my job requires me to ... more

“great beaches and biking”

Reviewed Mar 11, 2018

Was on way from Texas to Jacksonville FL. Stopped at this park. I could only book one night online. When I got here the ranger told me to come back at 7:30am and get on the site list. Sure enough someone cancelled and I could get up to 12 days more. The bay and gulf beaches are nice. People were catching fish on the Gulf. They have kay... more

We stayed here over a weekend. The campsite was level, and provided adequate privacy. No problems backing in our 34 foot Excella. Showers were clean and warm. There is a small laundry that you can use. The beach, like most Florida Beaches doesn't allow dogs. Most of the beaches in Port St. Joe do though. There is basically o... more

“Quiet campground despite being full”

Not much that I can add other than the fact that this CG is a great place to take it easy or find adventure. The camp hosts were friendly, helpful and kept the Shady Pines loop immaculate!! We took a tip from Wander Wasi and found a spot between sites 90-100. 92 had been a tent only spot in the past but it has water and electric n... more

Can I just say that I love this park. The beach was so close and so beautiful. There were plenty of roads to ride bikes. The campsite was lush. The bathrooms were decent. Free wifi was available. I will be back.

“An Island of Beautiful Beaches ”

Reviewed Apr 01, 2017

Overall Rating

We absolutely loved this state park! We were able to snag two nights as a walk up (Thurs-Sat), this park books up far in advance. We called when we were about an hour away and they had one spot, so we took the risk and drove out there. It's a pretty drive out to the barrier island. Follow the other review and come stocked, there is not... more

We were able to snag a couple of cancelled nights at St. Joseph State Park and enjoyed this quiet and practically empty beach in Florida...in April! This state park is definitely a destination in itself as there is not a city nearby or any entertainment to speak of. Stock up before heading this way because we only found on small gr... more
