This is a beautiful park with many options for fun. We walked down the gulf side and encountered very few people. There are many shells and sharks teeth to find. If the gulf side is too windy/wavy then try the lemon bay side. On the Lemon bay side we found a tortoise, an urchin, and some dolphins! The only drawback... More

This park is as beautiful as you can imagine! We enjoyed the trails & wildlife! We jumped out of the boat & walked around for hours.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Florida. Sugar white sand and clean clear blue water.

We always access by boat. The water is beautiful, the sand is like silk and it is just so peaceful. We enjoy watching the various water activities. Very relaxing!

My husband & I found this beautiful beach in Oct. 2014 on our way to Sanibel Island. It's so peaceful & incredible! Tons of shells and sharks teeth! This year we plan to stay here for a few days. We can't wait!

Looked like Siesta Key! Clear blue warm water. Great for shell and shark tooth hunting. Bring your snorkeling gear!

Nice for a state park ... And bath house was open and clean as could be expected. We didn't find as many sharks teeth here as we thought we would but the beach was nice ... Wish I would've had a kayak.

Stump pass State Park is the best beach in the area. If you go, take the time to walk to the south end of the beach. The pass, between the Gulf and bay is a terrific place to see wildlife. We always see dolphins and ospreys. This is also a fantastic place to snorkel and find plenty of shells and... More

Walk south from the visitor center through the woods along Lemon Bay. Wear good shoes or sandals that are secured to your feet. Check the tide tables to be sure there will be walkable shore on the second half of the hike. The trail is sandy in parts and can be muddy after rains. Along this side of the trail,... More
