The site was small but so was our unit. The bushes gave us privacy in spite of the full campground. I made our reservation online. I thought I was going to be closer to the restroom than I was in reality. At night it is difficult to get on the right sand path to get the restroom and back to... More

We were supposed to camp in Shady Pines but when we arrived we were told the power was out on that side and they were working on the site. We could either wait for it (it was out all night) or choose a site in Gulf Breezes. The Gulf Brees site was direct access to the beach (literally a few... More

We LOVE this place, I'm reviewing our 8th camping trip here. Site #69, July 8-10. This wasn't one of the shadier sites. It was hard to find a piece of shade for most of the day. The beach is usually too windy to use our umbrella, so we didn't even bring it this time but would have set it up... More

I had been to Mexico Beach several times and have taken the trip to the cape where St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is a couple of times before to use their boat ramp, which is available to non campers or cabin residents for a $10.00 fee. I wasn't planning on going back to Florida again this year because I had... More

What a beautiful state park! When we were there it wasn't crowded at all. The entrance fee is $6.00 per vehicle. We fished, kayaked, went shelling, walked the beach, hiked and enjoyed nature. Others there were snorkeling and scalloping as well. You have access to both St. Joseph Bay and The Gulf of Mexico. If you love the beach, and... More

There's a variety of wild life that wander around this park. We never knew what we would see. The campsites were a little smaller than I expected, but we still enjoyed our stay. The beach is beautiful, and an easy walk from the campground. If you're tent camping, sites 118 and 94 appeared to be shadier than the site we... More

We stay in a house on Cape San Blas for a week every year and we frequently visit the park during our stay. Every visit is different! We mainly go to the bay and explore the waters to see what new discoveries we can make!! It is always amazing! We paddle and snorkel and always leave with great stories and... More

Kayaking or paddleboarding in the bay offers great wildlife viewing. We saw horseshoe crabs, sea urchins, sand dollars, hermit crabs, fish, crabs, etc. Excellent place to explore with kids. The beach had beautiful white powdery sand, clean restrooms, and was not crowded. If you want secluded beaches go to the furthest trail and hike out over the sand dunes. Gorgeous,... More

Had a blast. The park is amazing. Very well maintained. The creatures are your neighbors. Wildlife is everywhere. Watch out for the racoon though. The activities are great. We went kayaking and snorkeling on the Bayside and enjoyed the gulf breeze and laying out on the Gulf side. Spent a day in Port St Joe. Great downtown area with friendly... More

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
