Scheduled to be closed September 2017 through ? for the construction of a sea wall to try and stop beach erosion. The campground here is nice with thick vegetation separating most of the sites on the sides, which is good as the sites are right next to each other. There is beach access from all the sites. The sites have... More

We had a lovely day hiking the trail. There are guide posts and markers explaining what you might be seeing. The trail was very easy to walk, about one mile long, and went through different terrains. You saw the water and mangroves, little crabs on trees, lots of birds. There were shady areas and open sunny areas. Bathrooms at the... More

Our primary purpose for visiting was kayaking, and we were not disappointed. It was very windy, so we didn't spend much time on the ocean, but paddled the inner lagoon/lake. Both were just beautiful! We didn't go into the campground, but if it looks half as good as the rest of the park, it would be well worth visiting! The... More

Stopped here when our snorkeling trip departure got changed unexpectedly. We wanted to check out the "beach" area (shallow areas, bit murky and some jellies in the water) and also decided to take the nature trail around the 1.1 mile loop. Some parts of trail prone to flooding and we experienced this around 0.6 miles in -- easy enough to... More

We were really looking forward to our stay here but were disappointed when we arrived at our site and could hear and see traffic going by on the road. We also have a dog and were told that she could not go on the beach or in the water. When we asked why, we were given a very generic answer... More

This is just off the highway but immediately you park up you are transported to a very different environment. Choose the nature trail. It's is very accessible and full of fascinating natural things to observe from the tiny crabs scampering all over the red mangrove trees, to many types of birds and fish. The trail is a loop of around... More

Our campsite was beautiful! All campsites are feet from the water. We saw lots of pretty birds and had lots of privacy. The Stars were amazing at night! Bathrooms were immaculate! The highway was so close that sleeping was tough in a tent. Maybe in an RV you would be ok. The brochure says you can swim there all year... More

The park trail was a nice walk. Saw hermit & sand crabs. A couple areas were very wet & no bridge. Had to take off shoes & walk through. Remember bug spray.

Very nice state park with a nice boardwalk over a mangrove area and some beautiful views over the Gulf of Mexico. There were some good educational signs about the reef. I also saw some really nice and quiet picnic spots overlooking the gulf. I hope some of us keep sponsoring those kind of old school state parks to teach modern... More

It's a very small park and not a lot of people, which was AWESOME! Super shallow water, great for floating and chilling. Nice spot to BBQ with the fam and veg. Lots of things to look out for and explore with the kids! Just don't tell anyone, keep it on the down low! :)
