Biking, hiking, wartersports, wildlife, quiet, natural beauty. We were here on miserably hot days in August, but the breeze kept us cool as we biked and hiked around.

$8 for sun, fun, snorkeling, and safe place for small children to swim. Our family and friends had a great time. My son, 10, and I were able to go snorkeling together and see so many types of fish. You can go see the gators, there is another beach that has the waves. If you have the time, we highly... More

Camped out at St Andrews for the week. Park staff were great when we had an issue with neighbors the first day (about 20 teenagers with 6 vehicles right next door with lots of alcohol). They moved us immediately. It was only bad because we then had to take down and move all our stuff by ourselves, but we were... More

My wife and I took our family (four kids that are 12,10,8,7) to St Andrews for a long weekend. We wanted to get away one more time before the end of the summer came, since the kids started school that Monday. We took a Diesel Pusher type of RV for the trip. The park itself is great. The bath houses... More

Nice walking short trail through real Florida vegetation and marsh area. We saw many birds and an alligator. The beach is pristine and uncrowded. We should have come earlier in the day and brought swim and snorkeling gear. It was still worth the $8 entrance fee for the views! We came after 5 and the concessions weren't open.

We were directed here by our hotel receptionist, and glad she did because- wow- what a beach. Though crowded for a Wednesday, the bay was the perfect place to take the kids snorkeling while my husband fished from the rocks. We saw all sorts of fish, hermit crabs and the water was clean, clear, warm and calm in the little... More

Great place to visit for the day. Offers the "kiddie pool" and open access to the beach and beautiful white sand. Nature trails, hiking, small store, and alligator observation is available. I did not give the park 5 stars because I loved this park so much we decided to bring our travel trailer to spend the weekend. Was very disappointed... More

What an amazing place to visit. My family and I camped out there for a couple of days and had a lovely time. If you are in this area, this is a must see. The beach, the clear water and sunny blue skies, who could ask for more. We stayed at the camp site and had a really fun few... More

We really like this park if you can book sites in the 90s on the water-stay away from the sites in the pines-too many bugs and if it rains the frogs and cicadas are beyond musical ! Excellent access to Panama City and the beach is fantastic. Very clean restrooms and great laundry !
