We went during early June for a quick 3 day weekend with the kids. The bathroom areas are very nice and super clean, and big enough that there wasn't much wait even during the busy hours. (This proved very important when I got sick towards the end of the trip...) We chose Gulf Breeze campground even though it was more... More

The Beach is out of this World!! So beautiful! I even liked it more then St. George Island State park Beach. The sand is pure white and no sea weed in site.Well worth the price to get into the park. Besides swimming they even have a nice bay area for fishing or you can just fish on the beach. I... More

We tented at Gulf Breeze camping area. Wide, spacious, long beach. From the beach, the camp site is just over the sand dunes, easily accessible by boardwalks. (preserves the dunes and nesting birds). Myself and a few others found this water to be swim-able, adequate temp in March with air temps in 80's. A raccoon lives behind site 50 so... More

This state park and campgrounds is a treat. One side of the peninsula has a calm bay to fish or swim in, the other side is the beach on the Gulf of mexico. While we were there we saw quite a few deer feeding. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay! There isn't much close by so be sure... More

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
