Great beach but much eroded

The beach is great but there is limited parking and it has lost about 2/3 of its volume in the last two years from storms. Great sunset views. Parking cost $3.

Loved this State park. Nice white sand and lots of shells available. Parking small but so worth it getting their early. Not as crowded as other areas. Very clean and ranger in the parking area very friendly and helpful. The water, well it is the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful blue.

The parking lot at Stump pass is very small and fills up quickly. We tried to get in today..no luck. However, we have been there many times and it truly is a beautiful beach area. The restrooms facilities are clean and conveniently located. There is also a short walk through the mangrove area with informational signage. Be sure to go... More

A very nice beach but bring an umbrella if you want any shade. We took the 1.3 mile trail which was very nice but it does have some soft sand to walk on for part of the way. Cars cost $3 no matter how many are in it and to walk in (which we did as we were staying a... More

Beautiful beach right on the Gulf of Mexico. I got here by way of a boat tour and loved it. Saw lots of birds and dolphins. Would love to come back here when it's warmer and catch some rays all day. I'd recommend going by boat because it's a half mile or more walk to the very end, where the... More

A beautifully scenic park. The only disappointment was after the 1.3 mile hike over the nature trail to the beach, it would have been nice to have a place to sit down at the end point with perhaps a comfort station and a drinking fountain available. Those things are available at the start of the trail but not at the... More

Easy to access though parking lot can be crowded. Three dollars to park but totally worth it. I'll go back again and again. Best way to visit is by boat.

We saw a snake, some weasel-like mammals in the distance, had a nice time with a friendly Great Blue Heron and enjoyed our own 'private beach'
