I have been visiting St Andrews state park since 1984 when I did my scuba certification dives here. My most recent visit was Oct 21-23 2014. The beaches were clean as were the retail areas and restrooms. They were in the process of tearing down the front Beach store. I assume they're going to rebuild it. I have always enjoyed... More

By visiting Florida in October one of the things we could do, because it was not so hot, was to spend the day at St. Andrews State Park. We stayed in a condo on the beach but brought our bikes with us and had a great day in the park. It is really pretty and the beaches are amazing.

When the weather was cold and nasty over the entire US except florida we headed to St Andrews based on friend's recommendations. Good decision. Since it was December we had a good selection of sites. Naturally those are on the bay side with many right on the water with nice surrounding trees. Restrooms / showers were very good, staff was... More

This is a great park! We walked some trails by Gator Lake and swam/paddleboarded in the jetty area. We went on a day when the beaches along the Gulf were closed due to rough surf. The jetty area was calm and perfect. Loved it!

We spent two nights camping at St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, FL. Located at the east end of the barrier island that Panama City Beach is on means the best of both worlds: the real Florida experience of undeveloped nature and many restaurants and attractions within just minutes in Panama City Beach itself. As others have mentioned... More

Visited the park as part of the Pirates of the High Seas Fest - Run for the Treasure race. Perfect weather made the race enjoyable. Race sponsors were very friendly and helpful.

We have been here several times, usually at least 3 to 4 times a year but many times even more. We camp here at least once or twice a year. The beach is awesome and this park has one of the only good snorkel spots on the panhandle. Camping is also great, some sites have the ability to launch a... More

I called and the person in the phone was absolutely vulgar and rude to answer the phone. I would not recomend this place at all!! They should educate the people that works there to the behaviors of 21st century human beings.

We stopped here twice in our most recent trip to PCB. Excellent option for families with little children as there is very little to know waves on one side of the beach access. Also, there is much wildlife to be found like crabs, various fish, hermit crabs, raccoons, etc.
