Great for kids

With the bathrooms and showers, its perfect for small children! No sandy wet kids piling in the car.

This is the classiest state park we've booked in several years --- paved roads, new boardwalks to the beach, large private level sites, office has ice, beverages, souvenirs, etc. Better make your reservations early for this one!

Did not see the Alligator's this time, but they are there. Lots of birds Love to hear the sound of the Ocean. Still a little chilly for a long walk, but won't be much longer. Can't wait. Not to many camping right now, but soon it will be over flowing. Bring your bike and go for a ride..

A lot of stuff to do here. I got the Palmetto Pass for state parks so admission was very cheap. A great parking area with clean bath houses and a great store for snacks and drinks. The beach is pristine and un-crowded. As soon as you get tired of the beach you can check out the marsh walks or the... More

My husband and I spent 1 night at this over priced non handicap friendly park. The ladies camping bathhouse is not set up for handicap use. The showers are to small for walkers or wheel chairs. I use a cane and I had a very difficult time trying to use the facilities. We will not return to this park.

Visiting during the winter, we didn't see much wildlife, although there is an eagle's nest at one end of the causeway. I can only imagine how much there is to see in warmer weather

So during this time of the year there are very few people on this beach so it makes for a great walk. The entrance fee is cheap and the parking is plentiful. It was nice to be able to get out and enjoy the beach and have it almost to myself. The area is very clean and well kept and... More

Wonderful staff! Told man at gate we had never been, he gave us a fabulous, thorough and enthusiastic overview:) Enjoyed the beautiful clean sandy beach, then went to the Nature Centre, where they had fantastic displays, including a baby alligator, seahorses, and other displays of local animals and sealife, and ecology. Staff here were also very knowledgeable and friendly. We... More

I enjoyed walking around the castle. There are two giant adirondak chairs just like my hiking area in Jersey and the trails were so much like home. The people in the visitors center were VERY helpful identifying the white birds we saw which were white pelicans. We went on the boardwalk over the bay and saw bald eagles and their... More
