There are two campgrounds located near each other at St Joseph Peninsula State Park. Shady Pines is much more private and has more trees and vegetation then gulf breeze campground. Both campsites have good quality showers and bathrooms a boardwalk connects both campsites and goes to the beach which is a great beach. Staff at the park were extremely friendly!

Eagles, otters, deer and a variety of sea birds. Great kayaking to boot. The bay side offers great tributaries to explore in kayak. The trails offered are nice and well maintained. The beach is beautiful and gulf white. Don't miss when visiting Port St. Joe.

We stayed in a cabin for our honeymoon. Did my homework and knew we had to bring my own pillows and mattress cover (theirs are covered in plastic. Bring salt, coffee, filters, sugar creamer. All dishes are furnished. IT IS RUSTIC but I just loved it. We went in cool weather so the bugs were not bad. I bet they... More

Hey camp. Stayed at gulf breeze. It's closer to the newer bath house and closer to the beach. Had a raccoon come in camp a couple nights. Part of the family stayed in the camper but I opted for a tent. I could hear the waves crashing!! Not a lot of good shelling..kinda hit and miss. On the bay side... More

What a completely cool place to scallop. People come from miles and miles to scallop in the shallow waters here. We ended up with about 1lb between the three of us. Its a fun experience for children. We stayed at the campground and was a little disappointed at the jam packed sites. You were right on top of your neighbors... More

Need to make reservations well in advance for this one, at least if you have a motorhome. Lush tropical looking campground...windy roads through it, but big enough for a forty foot motorhome to get in..paved sites, separated by lots of vegetation. Short walk on the wooden walkways to the ocean...buautiful gulf coast sunsets, quiet atmosphere. Had adequate electricity, no sewer... More

I have read a number of glowing reviews about this state park, and it does have a beautiful Gulf of Mexico location. The beaches are white-sugar-sand with majestic dunes. There are portions of the beach where you can be all alone. But don't expect to do much shelling. In fact, bring a garbage bag as you will find the trashy... More

We were here for 8 nights in July 19 - 26, 2014 in a pop-up camper on site 49. The map located on the State Park booking site is not to scale and can be misleading - for example the map shows a large space between sites 48 and 49 - there is no space between the two - they... More

I am at a loss for some of the negative reviews, but this is not a private campground with TV hookups and a pool, this is a great state park. The beach and sand here is some of the best in Florida. Soft white sand beach that was very clean. There is a wooden board walk from the beach to... More

Beach area is alright, but we were there to see wildlife and we only saw crabs. A permit is needed to go to the wildlife refuge. I wished that I knew this before we went out of our way to stop here. If you have a boat or want to snorkel, you would be happy. As far as a state... More
