One of the best camping sites in the nation. The beaches are so beautiful. It was my first time camping in 25 years so I was completely happy with this camp ground.

Winter might not seem a good time to visit a park on the beach. But it is. Certainly a walk along the shore is easier, not having to avoid sunbathers and children playing. The water is clearer as the summer seaweed has disappeared. At Grayton,...More

I love this park. It is an iconic landmark on 30A! Walking among the dunes and along the lake is magical. Taking a kayak to the park via the lake is a must do!!

We walked and walked on the beach! Miles of beach access. We got to see The famous Water color inn and seaside beach. Very beautiful walk, full of seagulls, transparent water, just beautiful. Parking for car access was $5.00

I don't think so... we didn't have an issue with this. The cabins are in a different location /entrance area from the main gate entrance to The beach /campground area

I don't remember seeing bikes to rent at Grayton beach. They don't even have a little store anymore. Other parks do like St Andrews. I believe Seaside area has bike rentals though and you could ride them to this park.

Unfortunately, we rented one of the cabin, which are located in a separate area of the park. However, I found the park employees very helpful with my questions.
