We recently tent camped here for 4 nights and its definitely one of the prettier state parks we have stayed at. We stayed in the Riverside campground where the sites are wooded and semi-private. The bathroom seemed to be recently renovated. There is plenty to see and do in this park and its proximity to town with plenty of restaurants... More

We just drove through the park. It was raining. There are trails to walk and bicycle too. It did cost $6.00 to enter and since we did not even get out of the car that was a bit of a disappointment.

We wanted to see a deserted beach at sunrise and wound up here. The park did not open until 8:30 so the sun came up without us. The beach is covered with shells but no people. Very nice! If solitude is on you menu, don't miss it.

Spent a few hours touring the Fort and surrounding areas. The day we were here it was raining. Went to the fishing pier and beach area and enjoyed looking for shells. Had the rain not taken a turn for the worse we would have spent more time in the area.

Beautiful entry into park, stops along the way, great beach area with boardwalk, gift shop, free history film and Fort with cannons and great view of the Atlantic. What more could you want?

New to camping not sure what to expect. What a wonderful surprise. This park is like none other we've visited. It feels very private and secluded. By limiting the intrusion of man, you really feel like you are in old Florida. Our site was clean and well cared for. Only wish would be for sewer hookup to be available.

The entrance to this wonderful state park is unassuming; however it's a hidden treasure. You can hike or bike the trails, picnic, stroll and sunbathe on the uncrowded beach or fish from the pier. Then there's the fort itself which offers fantastic views and a helpful staff ready to answer questions about its history.

this was a Fort built in 1847 between wars and was used by various generations for various puirposes. Most of the unfinished Fort was available to view as it was in the pre Civil War days . They had actors playing the historical roles of the officers and men so you could ask questions and get historically accurate answers. A... More
