You will pay a toll and small fee to enter, the money goes to the park. Old historic fort, bike rentals, fishing, dog park, clean covered areas and beaches, what's not to love? Locals have their own secluded spots-not the typical spring break partiers like...More

If I could, I would give this Florida state park a six. We had a great time here after experiencing a string of disappointing destinations driving down Gulf Blvd (699). The rest of the family was tired and hungry and protested when I followed the...More

So many beaches and so little time. Bikes and kayaks for rent. Camping and cafes. Saw many birds and even dolphins. Well maintained and clean facilities. Don’t miss it. The Fort is missing signs and explanations so hope efforts are underway to document and explain...More

Very nice walk on the beach after checking out the fishing pier. Collected lots of shells. Hung out on the beach all day. It was very relaxing!

Drove over from Tampa and it was well worth the journey and cost to get in. The fort itself is not what in England we would call historic. Just over a hundred years old and concrete. The signing is very poor and needs updating. One...More

We went for a hike on the beach, toured the Fort and watched people fish on the pier. Took a drive through the campground too. Wish we would have had our bikes. Looks like a nice bike trail throughout the park.

It’s $5 to get in now. 75 cent toll as well right before park. Beach is nice. Fishing pier is nice. Well maintained. Worth a visit.

This park has the only off-lease dog beach in the area. The beach is clean and everyone who pays the $5.00 entry fee seems to understand the necessity to clean up after their pet. Our dogs enjoyed running into the water and playing with the...More
