A barrier island park known for great shelling and fishing, Saint George Island State Park attracts visitors in search of white sandy beaches and emerald waters. You can swim, kayak, hike, canoe, and camp at this park, which varies in topography from rolling dunes and forests to quiet coves and undeveloped beaches. Situated between the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay, the island has existed for 5,000 years. It wasn't until the 1960s, though, that the state built a causeway, which brought the public starting in 1980. It's a nice spot to bird-watch and observe other animals, such as sea turtles.

  • We drove thru the park, very clean. Ranger was very friendly. Campground looked nice and clean. Only downside you have to drive to the beach too far to walk. 
  • Think brilliant blue sky with sparkling white sand and warn sea. There are shells to search for and many birds. Changing amenities provided at safe bathing areas in this State Park.
