  • Great Park to camp in and visit for the day. Hurricane Mathew damaged the dunes and other areas in the park, but for the most part the park has been restored and is ready for visitors. I would not discourage anyone from visiting this park.
  • Nice quiet and very secluded beach. Nice walkways through the dunes and woods. Good place to watch wildlife, camp, geocache, and much more.
  • It's beautiful. They've raised the prices on activities since I was here last year so bring your own paddle board. The blue raspberry drink is the better one.
  • Nice area, feels like a small town at times, and stills has a wide selection of restaurants, bars, and other places to go that are walking distance from this beach area. Clean beaches, with a gentle slope, and sand dunes with Sea Oats for a very scenic view. Great waves for a little surfing, and good fishing up on the pier. Perfect for a full day at the beach.
  • Neat place, but the outside should be pet friendly!! It's a state park, and it's a beach. But St Aug is very pet friendly...why not a state park?!? Ridiculous!
