St George is a beautiful island. There are no fast food restaurants on local owned. Took our children while they were young and we still go with our extended family. St George Island is a place for family time. You find your own fun with your children and their closeness grows. They state park has lovely trails to walk and... More

Flew my drone around this lighthouse for some really great shots, and then out over the peaceful beaches. Had drinks at the Blue Parrot and felt in general as if I had stepped into a Jimmy Buffett song. Love It!

We spent a day at St George Island. Friendly people, clean rest rooms near light house, lovely beaches, etc. NOT a place for those who think vacation is about hoity-toity shops. St George Island is more like your favorite slippers - warm, comfortable, appreciated. Kids playing on the basketball court, exquisite sand and sun. February is winter so while we... More

We made a special side trip to see this island as had heard about it from friends. We met the nicest women on the beach, where we stopped for a short walk to stretch our legs and give our small dog a bit of needed exercise. Probably a GREAT place to visit, stay or explore, but we were getting too... More

While the landscape and beach are beautiful, we were not overly impressed with this state park. To begin, we were driving and called ahead because we would be arriving just at closing time (6pm). The ranger on duty told us that "he was not paid overtime and would be gone by 6:01. Lucky for us we arrived at 5:57 and... More

We had planned to spend a whole day on St. George's Island, but the weather forecast for rain the next day, altered our plans. So, b/4 checking into the hotel, we spent a few hours in the state park walking the boardwalks/trails along the coastal areas. The walks are so pretty with many viewing platforms and benches to rest along... More

Wow, what a beautiful little island. Just spent 3 nights in the SP campground and I dont mind telling you, it's about as good as it gets. Well laid out park, nice camping spots amongst pine trees. Excellent facilities, nice trails , Georgous beach. It's got everything going for it.

We love the Blue Parrot restaurant, and the rural quality of this gem of a place. If you're looking for the hoity toity glamour/wild party thing, this isn't it. Very beautiful, very non-pretentious, and just plain lovely.

We've been coming here for almost 20 years and have never had a bad experience, albeit some better than others, mostly weather related. Come often enough and you will find where you like to go, where you like to eat, what you enjoy doing, etc. Everyone has their favorites according to taste. I would recommend getting groceries off island as... More

Can get off season rates for accommodations. Peaceful and quieter time of the year for an island visit. See the sites, Lighthouse, long walks on the bayside, unit 4 for bird watching, or the beautiful sandy beaches and St. Park.
