We go to Stump Pass Beach several times a week and walk to the end and back. We love the beach and the tree stumps and the fact that there are no houses on the beach We have seen manatees, dolfins, rays and other fish and lots of birds. It's very peaceful and good for shelling. Parking in season is... More

Take the sand path through natural Florida fauna - 1.3 miles to a spectacular beach vista where you are almost guaranteed to see dolphins and ospreys (there's an easy to spot nest right there). We have also spotted bald eagles - we watched one steal a fish from an osprey! If you don't fancy the walk the beach is both... More

Nothing here but a path along the beach and one picnic table. A few boats beach up and picnic. There is parking, but it fills up. It is a nice peaceful 3 mile round trip walk in the woods and along the beach.

This is a lovely beach on a key to visit, even if it's too cool to swim in the Gulf. There are 4 miles of walking trail to explore and the path is nicely maintained with educational signage.

Knowing how busy this place can be and parking can be a problem, I always bike or even hike (around 6 kms from our house to Stump Pass entrance). I love the ambiance in this park. Lots of bush such that even on a hot day, you get some shade. The trails take you down all the way to the... More

Great little state park with TONS of shells and shark teeth to be found on the beach. It wasn't crowded at all when we were there, but it was a bit cold (which probably kept some people away).

We visited here and spent the afternoon walking a trail there. It was lovely with the river on one side and sea on the other and just enough vegetation to keep us sheltered from the sun. Excellent birdlife and not too many other people around.

Was a little busy, we only had 59ft by 50 ft to ourselves. Our 4 kids could do what ever they wanted without bothering anyone. Lots of teeth found using florida snow shovel and a kitchen collender. I would definitely visit again.

Park is at the entrance of Stump Park. We love to walk all the way to Stump Pass. It's a beautiful beach and usually not crowded altho parking lot can get crazy. It's great swimming area and a fun place to snoop and poke around area of Lemon Bay

It's really very beautiful place... You have to be ready to swim or sunbathing a lot, to take pictures, to admire beautiful sunset. It has nice paths that are easy to follow on your own. My favorite quiet place:)
