“Great Place to Visit and/or Camp”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I thought about giving a really bad review so people wouldn't want to come, but just can't do that to the park or the employees. We have always had very friendly encounters with the staff. For people who fish, there is usually something biting in the gulf or in the bay, except during the winter months. Beaches are beautiful all the time. Lots of room for solitude and walks. There are several restaurants and shops on the island and Eastpoint and Appalachicola are just a few miles away offering several different offerings to enjoy for those who can't take too much peace and quiet. The campground is well kept with recently remodeled bath houses. Sites are mostly private and spacious. There are two boat ramps in the park for those who don't want to fish from the surf. Shelling is decent if that is your cup of tea. Unfortunately, dogs are only welcome in the campground. It would be nice to have a stretch of beach that is pet friendly. Perhaps in the future? Since Florida offers seniors (65+) half price camping, a lot of people are just there to enjoy the park, not to party into the wee hours. We like that. We camp here about four times a year, but once I retire, a lot more.

“Beautiful and deserted”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you want to feel like you have the whole beach to yourself, this is the place. A beautiful, pristine beach with very few people. Waves on the gulf side and calm waters on the bay side, where you can launch a boat, fish, or feel safe with little ones.

“Great fishing; Service Hit or Miss”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I always go through the state park down to the east end for fishing. Sometimes the people are the guardhouse where you pay are extremely friendly. One gentleman that works there is extremely rude and knocked down the rating a bit. That being said, it is miles of unspoiled beach. Can't really beat it.

“Just Amazing”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Moved to Florida from Utah and all I can say is amazing! Soft white sand beaches and plenty of space to sprawl out and just enjoy the moment. Lots of small shells for kids to look at and some even have tiny snail like things inside which are always fun. Make sure to park your vehicle at one of the parking spots with a building which has showers and bathrooms or else you may find yourself in quite a bind. It is a state park and I think it cost $8 for one vehicle to get into the park. Well forth every penny.
