Dr. Julian Bruce St. George Island State Park
Open: Open all year
Number of Sites with Electric and Water: 60
About: Miles of undeveloped beach with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Apalachicola Bay on the other provide the perfect setting for this 2,023-acre park. Two boat ramps provide access to Apalachicola Bay where anglers can fish for flounder, redfish, sea trout, pompano, whiting and Spanish mackerel. Few parks offer better opportunities for gulf coast shelling while enjoying the antics of the shore birds, such as the snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer and willet who often nest along the park’s sandy shores and grass flats. Visitors have ample opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, canoeing, boating, hiking, camping and nature study. The park has six large picnic shelters equipped with grills, tables and restrooms, and the campground features full-facility campsites. A primitive campsite can be accessed by trail or by private boat.
This 1,962-acre barrier island park has 60 campsites with electricity, water hookups and a dump station nearby. Six sites have concrete pads and walkways. The campground is located behind historic dunes in the pine forest. Although there are no ocean or gulf views, the campsites are only a quarter mile from the beach and the gulf. There are two restrooms with hot showers, a playground and linear nature trails that meander from the campground through the pine forests and coastal scrub. Pets are welcome but must be kept on a six foot leash controlled by the pet’s owner. Pets are not allowed on the beach or in any facilities.
Maximum RV length = 43 ft.
