St. George Island State Park

Description

St. George Island State Park is 1,962 acres of long, narrow barrier island, with miles of undeveloped beaches, dunes, and emerald waters providing the perfect setting for a day on the Byway. Few parks offer better opportunities for Gulf Coast shelling. Anglers can fish for Flounder, Redfish, Sea Trout, Pompano, Whiting, and Spanish Mackerel. During spring migration birders should look for songbirds in the small oaks near the youth camp area restrooms and park campground. Shore birds such as the Snowy Plover, Least Tern, Black Skimmer, and Willet often nest along the park's sandy shores and grass flats. Watch for Gopher Tortoise near the youth camp area. Sea turtles nest along the park beaches. Facilities include six large picnic shelters with grills, tables and restrooms. The campground features full-facility campsites as well as primitive campsite that can be accessed by trail or by private boat. Two boat ramps provide access to Apalachee Bay.
