St George Island State Park has the most fantastic camping anyone could ask for

Describe your camping trip:

Secluded with nice sites and bathhouses.
Pros: The location. It was on far end of the island with plenty of beach area. In October when I was there, I had the beaches all to myself.

Cons: Bad skeeters. take plenty of spray.
Nearby attractions: Good restaurants on and near the island with plenty of fresh seafood.
Further comments: Everything was great aside from the skeeters.
