Loved being at the south end of the park at the tip!

Beautiful walk through the park to the ocean at the tip. Spent a few hours here and enjoyed. Beach is also nice to swim at.

At the far end of the key with a wonderful nature walk this beach is a must visit if you are in the area. Three dollars to park for the day!

We have been to Stump Pass Many Times. You can Snorkel, ride the current from the intracoastal to the Gulf on tubes and find lots of Conch and sharks teeth. A fabulous beach

If you enjoy more of a natural environment, then Stump Pass is for you. It is located at the southern point of Gulf Blvd. in Englewood FL. The parking is a pay lot, but helping to fund state parks that preserve natural beauty is okay in my book. Restrooms are available. Nature trails are there, too. The shoreline has a... More

Nice easy walk with stops along the beach to the end where it would be nice if there were someplace to sit besides the wet stumps. Too many people for my liking and by the looks of the parking lot it wasnt that busy that day. Say lots of various birds. Scenery was lovely.

This review is for us old geezers who like nature. I AM one. This is a wonderful hike BUT,old geezers, beware. Take water, sunscreen and a hat. It seems longer than 1.3 miles and it WILL be longer if you wander around on the shoreline. In some places the sand is deep and this made it a moderately difficult hike... More

This park was a nice place for a 1 to 3 hour hike depending on your pace. There are small beaches that you can exit onto while on the hiking path. It costs $3.00 to park at the park so the area is not too crowded. I found it to be an unusual beach area. Definitely, worth the effort to... More

Stump Pass Beach is beautiful, although now in season, it does get crowded. There is a self-serve entry fee so bring dollars to pay. Parking can get full so plan your trip for early in the day arrival to park or plan to wait... or better yet, bike in! Showers, rest rooms

Stump Pass Beach State Park is on the south end of Manasota Key, an island that is easily reached by bridge just off of the mainland near Englewood, Florida. A small dirt parking lot offers free parking, a kayak/canoe put-in, and toilets. That's pretty much it for development. Walk south from the parking lot into the undeveloped park that is... More
