An absoute remarkable undisturbed piece of nature. Several parking and beach access points available. Public restrooms and showers are available in two locations. The restricted area to the East end of the park is well worth getting into. The park has the best shelling on the island.

We went during the week and the beaches and trails were almost to ourselves. The area by the first boat ramp is the best for great birding

We spent an entire afternoon on the sugar hill beach at St George Island State Park. What a beautiful place! it was in October, so we had much of the beach too ourselves. They also have very clean restroom/changing facilities and picnic areas with grills. The next time we visit here, we will be taking burgers to cook. Dave and... More

Beautiful remote and rugged State park. So glad the State keeps it up so well and the continued building of large homes stops somewhere on this great island.

I went to Apalachicola and St George Island because I DID NOT want the crowds, traffic, and high prices of the Pensacola-Panama City panhandle with all the over crowding and limited beach access. All of St George Island is wonderful, easy beach access, but especially St George Island State Park. The cost to enter is $6 per day for a... More

Went to the island on a last minute camping trip. The campsites have minimal shade and not very tent friendly. Did I mention it was hot? Did also mention that there is no AC in the bathrooms? Also, the mosquitoes are Gravenous and travel in swarms. Worst I have ever seen. On a bright note, the Rangers were very nice!!... More

We spent almost every day of our week long vacation at the state park. It's beautiful and very inexpensive. My husband fished and the kids found all kinds of shells. We saw dolphins, loggerhead sea turtles, sting rays, starfish, and lots of other great things. I would definitely recommend going there if you're in the area.

I'm a surfer from Tallahassee and this is not a place to go if you want waves. I recommend Jacksonville, St. Andrews which is in Panama City.
