St George Island State Park in Florida is 9 miles of undeveloped beaches and dunes, surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay. During World War II, troops at Camp Gordon Johnson in Carrabelle Florida used the island for training exercises. Remnants of practice bombs and artillery shells are still found in the park.
Florida acquired the park land in 1963 and when the Bryant G. Patton Bridge across Apalachicola Bay to St George Island was completed in 1965 there was an increase in recreational use. The park officially opened as a state park in 1980.
We camped here in February 2020 for two nights and loved it. We drove the van to the beach each day and had our own private cabana. It's a good 1/4 mile walk to the beach area. There are a few trails in the park for hiking.
