This little state park is a oasis at the end of Panama City Beach. It shares the same beach as the touristy area but is set apart from the hotels, condos and other habitations that encroach on the rest of the beach. It has some nice walking trails, too, including one along a lake inhabited by at least one crocodile.... More

We spent about 4 hours wandering around the park. Beautiful white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. You can swim either in the Gulf or in the protected lagoon behind the jetty. There are a couple of trails for hiking and a lot of camp grounds. We saw quite a few deer wandering close to the roads. Not afraid... More

This campground has a bay side view from just about every site. The ones toward the west end are smaller and separated by palmettos. some of the sites on the east end are huge. If you have a rear bedroom, open up the blinds and have a vista you wont believe. The park has fantastic dunes and jettys and is... More

Always in for a walk and what a walk it is. We have never seen as big Blue Herons as here in the Park; truly a great Big Bird. Further we saw Osprey perched while others hunted. The big Alligator was in the reeds at the far-side of "Alligator" Pond. A mother deer and fawn sat and watched us from... More

Great geo-caching finds. Saw deer while hiking on interesting trails. Pristine, private beach. Worth the $8 per car admission.

A great place to go to take a short walk or play on the beach. Only a few bucks to get in per person, worth it. Saw a little gator. Didn't camp there, only spent a few hours.

St. Andrews has relatively little beach, but what it does have is excellent. If you're looking for a perfect little stretch of beach to visit in Panama City Beach, this is it. I go there several times a year. The water is usually blue or green. Dolphins come here many days. Charter boats come here to look at the dolphins.... More

The camp sight was so small there was barely room to pull out the slide on our camper. We booked a sight for a 40ft rig, our is 30ft. About 10ft x 10ft of room with picnic table to grill out. We drove around and found several that looked a little less cramped, will try to book one of those... More
