This park is definitely one we're going to want to come back to and probably even annually. The sites weren't very big, but they were shaded which is a must in this face melting FL heat. The beach was soooooooooooo beautiful and a little piece of heaven that we did not want to leave behind. Just expect the waves to be big as it is the Atlantic (we are on the west side of FL which has relatively small waves as it's in the gulf). If you walk down the beach toward the pier, there is a neat little water park (water squirts and playground) for the kids. We did not go in the lighthouse only went in the souvenir shop as it was way too much to go on the grounds of it and up it plus young children were not aloud to climb it or be carried up it so our three yr old would have not been even able to go up. If you exit the park and take a right, there is a neat playground over there and a skateboarding area. The nature trail in the park is very small but nice to stroll through and the sand dune area in the front of the park is pretty strange, but again nice to stroll through and if you walk througout it you will see lots of turtles. The playgrounds inside the actual park are nothing special. They should be called swingsets and not playgrounds. The two "playgrounds" on the camping loops are just swingsets and the playground at the beach area is better but still small for such a big park. It needs shade and again it is pretty much just a swing set that also has a couple surf board balance things to step on and a different kind of teeter totter. The trees near the beach were all twisted and weird but very neat looking. Seems like a lot of ppl were catching quite a few fish in the fishing area (we caught crabs and lots of them LOL). The spiders were the worst I've ever seen and I am a very outdoorsy type of person. Huge and all over so the kids were not able to explore in the woods like they could at other state parks. I don't think they were poisionous but they were EVERYWHERE especially all over the bathroom exterior. All in all though we will surely come back. Just want to book in advance bc it was hard to get a spot on the days we wanted. ENJOY!
