exactly how awesome this state park is! Want to keep this for ourselves... and all the others who already know about this place. We camped for 3 days. Accommodations were very good - better before the weekend crowd arrived. Beach is amazing. Great for snorkeling, walking, swimming, relaxing. Can't wait to go back.

The beauty here is breath taking! $8 per car is well worth it for an all day experience. Lots of wildlife but we only saw deer. Which was fine. We had our little dog with us and wasn't able to take him out on the piers which was a bummer. So, the husband & I took turns going out and... More

We camped in our small trailer on site 147. It was nicely shaded, semi private and short walk to the bathroom. The bath houses are very clean. Some have bigger shower areas than the others. Drink machine and washer / drier setup is nice if you need it. It's roughly 1 1/2 miles to the Beach at the Jetties. The... More

Arrived on Saturday and the park was packed. The campsites were very close together. The park itself is beautiful with lots of wildlife. Camping area cleared out on Sunday and I had a wonderful couple of days there.

Very nice place. Beach was cleaner and the water was clear than at our hotel. We will be back. Just remember to take your umbrella and snacks/drinks.

We loved it here. It's $8.00 for a car of up to 6 people. They only take cash at the entrance, so make sure to have some handy. The interpretive center was very informative and the drive, with stops on the way was nice. There is a pier to walk out on, beaches, one of which is very shallow with... More

We have camped at St. Andrews on 2 separate summer vacations. They have an awesome campground with clean bathhouses, electricity and water. The "kiddie pool" area by the jetties is a great place to swim and snorkel to see small tropical fish. There is also beach access across from the jetties.

This is a gorgeous beach with ultra-clear green water. The waves can be rough, though, so do pay attention to the posted signs. We were able to rent a surfboard from Mr. Surf's Surf Shop; if you see the trailer, you have to do this! Our tween kids got up right away, even with the serious waves. The kids also... More

This state park shines with its natural beauty. You can swim in the Bay, Pass to the Gulf, and the Gulf of Mexico. The rocks that line the pass are excellent to scuba along or to walk out on and fish with rod and reel. There are nature paths for walking or biking and several areas designated for campsites. My...
