Great beach. Any problems the ranger is there. I got stung by a wasp and Ranger Bob was very helpful. If it is windy follow the nature trail on the left hand side and there are plenty of sandy alcolves with no wind at all. 3 dollars a day parking, worth it as the beach is immaculate.

I love this beach! Lovely sand, swimming, clear water, and a great hike up to the end of the pass. The main reason I come here is to go shark tooth hunting as I am a teacher and collect them for a fossil activity for my students. There is a also a lovely hike through the park, part of which...

That is what I call a real Beach. No crowds of people, real nature, birds, dolphins. It is a hidden treasure. All you have to do is drive there and pay a 3$ entrance fee per vehicle.

We really enjoy beach visits at Stump Pass. The beach is clean, has wonderful sand, and is a great place for shellers. On a recent visit we found 220 shark teeth in about 2 hours. Like all FL parks, it is very reasonably priced, $3 per car for the day. There is an extensive area to walk. We enjoy walking... More

Three dollars to park (bargain), found a space although very few were left. It was a windy day when we visited Stump Pass meaning most beach brollies had to be lowered, lots of people were hunting for sharks teeth and with a little perseverance there were plenty for everyone to find. We found walking 5 minutes to a quieter part... More

Our favorite beach to go to. It's beautiful and secluded. You walk down the beach and you are the only ones in sight. Lots of walking trails and coves on the sound. Must see.

Great beach that has all of the assets of the perfect southwest florida gulf coast beach without all of the people. Of course, it can get crowded on a popular day, but nothing like Sarasota and Venice beaches. Public showers located along the boardwalk to wash off this sandy feet. There are also a couple of decent restaurants located across... More

Stump Pass is a great place to watch people fish, hunt for shells, and keep an eye out for manatees.
