  • So much more to explore in this park. Our first discovery was the walking/bike path that circles it - great for long or short outings. I don't have a 4-wheeler, but can see why this would be a favorit...  more »

  • Amazing Went last week. U don't need a silencer for exhaust. Which is nice . All I needed was helmet and flag .I stayed about 5 hours. No one bothered me. I was great
  • I went to St. Joe State Park to try out the off road area with my Jeep. The person at the front office was very friendly and polite and I was charged only $5 For a permit and admission for the off road area. The Off Road area itself is mostly sand but there are areas of mud and rocks. The area is huge and open! I wasn't able to explore all of it! There are trails that lead into wooded areas that are restricted to atvs only. Also you will need a safety flag put on your vehicle If you want to use the off road area. If you're an off road enthusiast beginner or advanced, I highly recommend coming here! I had a blast in my Jeep!
  • What can I say WOW! I've been riding there for about 15yr now. And don't get tired of it. All kinds of riding. For all kinds of vehicles. Awesome place. Good family fun
  • I went to St Joe's park to ride at in the ORV area and I had a great time. Even though it was busy I hardly came across any riders while out in the miles of marked trails. The trails when dry are mostly for novice to moderately skilled riders, but there were a few challenging hills. The park has a nice concession stand at the and clean restrooms in the ORV parking area. It is reasonable price and a great value to ride your dirt bike, ATV, or ORV.
  • Very well kept and offers on such as boating with trolling motors, large swimming area, fishing, hiking, canoes, camping that seperates ATV from regular camping, large ATV running area, Deer, turkey. Great Park officer's, etc. Great place to bring your family. A little something for everyone! BEAUTIFULLY MAINTAINED!
