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

We camped in our 26 ft RV here for 2 nights in late May and it was very beautiful. We brought our two terrier dogs with us and planned to take them on the beach. We chose this area because of the beauty, and because the website said pets are allowed in the park. (Although had we realized pets are... More

We kind of stumbled on St Joseph Peninsula Park by accident in the off season about 4 years ago and have been back a half dozen times since. It is a beautiful pristine park right on the gulf with some of the prettiest sunsets I've ever seen. I go back every chance I can and usually allow at least 3... More

This State Park is similar to St. George Island, but has its own beauty. There were two camping areas. The one area is the shady pine area with many tall pine trees. The other area, has camp sites that are closer together, and are less secluded, with more sun so to speak. The area has deer that come out to... More

I have been coming to this park for over 30 years and I still find it magical. The bay is great for windsurfing and snorkeling and just a two minute walk and you are top of the dune line looking at the gulf. We camp in our Scamp trailer, yes there are bugs but it is not to bad, try... More
