We spend several hours walking on the beach from the public access point to the north end of the cape. We walked about 4 miles total. The sand is beautiful powdered sugar white and there is a nice wooded boardwalk that takes you over the dunes. We drove through the campgrounds for plans for a future visit. At $24/night its...

I wanted to be out in the natural Florida and this was an excellent area to explore. All of the parks we visited from Pensacola to Apalachicola were beautiful, accessible and offered good facilities. A great way to see the natural Florida.

This small campground is a well kept secret ! There are 2 loops, th Gulf breeze is just aside the ocean and beautiful dunes. There are 2 restroom buildings in this loop, a new one and an older one. The pine loop is built upon a narrow paved road but not too easy for long RV or trailer. There is... More

The Cabins are lovely at St. Joe. However, you need to approach the cabins as if you are getting to camp with a Kitchen, bath and air conditioning! They accommodate 7, but I would say you would need to have some children as part of that 7. It would be very tight with 7 adults, and you should all know... More

The park looks much like the surrounding areas in Cape San Blas. The roads run a long way which would make for some good biking. Walking is largely limited to the beaches and a few paths which give you good water views but not much else. The cabins looks fantastic from the outside, if they are as nice inside, that... More

This is a very charming location if you are looking for a quiet get-away. It really did seem to be "the forgotten coast" while we were there as there were not many people around and many of the restaurants and shops were closed for the weekend. Those that were open were interesting and made the trip better.

Beautiful beach that was not crowded and even had room to spread out to do some surf fishing. Nice short hiking trails that were easy for the kids to enjoy. Did have some issues with biting flies at sunset but that's not unexpected during the summer in Florida. Will definitely return for another family vacation!
