We stumbled upon this beautiful state park by accident and ended up spending three days exploring and just hanging out. The beach is gorgeous and you can walk for an hour in either direction from the main entrance. On our second day, we rented kayaks...More

Excellent state park, with good displays. Unfortunately at the time of our visit, some maintenance was underway, so not all displays were up. None-the-less, it was a great family adventure. Kids were enthralled by the turtle and fish tank.

I love coming here. Really great for tourism if you are in town! But even better if you live here. Memberships are awesome here and very worth it. Staff is so kind. Makes living in FL so fun!

The park itself is well-described by other reviewers. I highly recommend that you stop by the Visitor Center when you visit. It is small, but includes thorough coverage of the local natural history and exhibits of live fish, snakes and sea turtles. I was especially...More

We have driven past many times and decided to finally check it out. It’s a really pretty park. There is beach access but be aware there is a 1600 foot boardwalk to cross to get to the beach and primitive bathrooms beachside. Not necessarily an...More

Easily accessible by auto. Our return to our automobile was hampered by the lack of signage. Warm reception, good entertainment at the amphitheater and excellent museums.
