Very nice state park. Water sites are awesome. Lots to do. Biking, walking, bird watching and just relaxing.

Some sites are hard to get into and roads are narrow. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here several times in the past few years. The park is in a great location for good restaurants, bars and kids attractions, and yet being relatively isolated and secure. There are some good hiking trails, a historical attraction, a fishing jetty and a swimming beach on the park property that a lot of campers don't discover. Check around! There are quite a few sites directly on the water (bay). When you make your reservation, check the site size carefully. Some are short. Sites are a little narrow also. Access roads are narrow for backing into a site, but adequate for two cars to pass. Last year, there had been some flooding problems with some of the sites after heavy rains (which happens fairly often in Florida). I notice they have brought in sand and gravel to raise some of these low sites. Coin operated Washers and dryers are at all the bath houses.

For some reason, at their registration office, you can check the availability of a certain site, but they will not make the reservation - you are referred to ReserveAmerica to actually make or change a reservation. The staff was cordial, but all business. Campground volunteers were parked on our site in their golf cart when we arrived and were in no hurry to move, even though it made us hold up traffic. Not a big problem, just strange. Sites on the water side, and some of the others, may have trouble will satellite reception. On some of the sites, previous campers have built campfires on the sand, out of the fire ring. This makes for difficulty walking around the site and not tracking soot into your camper. But, this is a good park; I'm sure we will be back. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Plenty of stores of kinds nearby. Good seafood at any price - go to Capt. Andersons. Good seafood at a reasonable price - go to J. Michaels.

Location, location, location! Absolutely beautiful park, with enough scenery, trails, water sports and activitie0s to keep myself, my husband and the ten year old boy occupied. If it had sewer, I would have given it a ten. The location of the park was perfect to commute to other attractions.Panama City Beach is close to the campground.The sites have some shade with pine trees and sand/dirt ground covering. Our site was a pull through. It had a fire ring with grate. We stayed seven nights and had to tote our gray water to the station twice. Quiet and family friendly park. Some of the best snorkeling and beaches around Florida. If you have to leave...Panama City Beach has all the restaurants, shopping, and attractions you need or want. We have camped at Henderson Beach and Grayton Beach and this state park is on the same level. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is at one end of Panama City Beach. You drive through the active beach community to reach the park. The park is on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico and the Grand Lagoon. The campground is along the Grand Lagoon. You need a car or bicycle to get to the beach from the campground - it is at least a half mile. The beach is absolutely gorgeous! The campground is right on the Lagoon, and many of the sites are on the water. The view across the Lagoon is of upscale condos and yacht clubs. We had some great kayaking in the Lagoon and the pelicans really put on a show. We had been told that it was hard to get a campsite here, but saw many empty sites while we were there. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

I have been to this park many times to see the deer and the birds or to walk on the beach. Great park. This was my first overnight stay. I was in the Lagoon area, and had a great water view. However, I also had music coming across the water from a restaurant or bar on the other side of the bay. I will stay closer to the boat ramp the next time so that I am closer to the walking trails and farther away from potential bar/restaurant music. Be sure to wear shoes or sandals at all times. Otherwise, you may get sand spurs in your feet. They are everywhere. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second visit to this park. We made sure to reserve a site on the Grand Lagoon in Lagoon Campground so we could enjoy the gorgeous views and great bird watching out our back windows or sitting in our chairs next to the water. This campground is rustic so if you're into resorts, you won't like it. The sites are mostly sand. Some Lagoon sites (#72 - 98) have some landscaping in between so you have some privacy while others (#16 - 38) have none or almost none. The sites in the Pine Grove campground area are very tight and with a recent ground cover burn, have very little landscaping between sites. There are several hiking trails and it's a great place to ride bikes. There's a place to easily launch a kayak or canoe in the campground to the east of site #72 a few feet. There's also a boat ramp at the east end of the campground. The Gulf is less than a mile from the campground with several boardwalks, pavilions and a pier. There is a camp store in the park with souvenirs, etc. and two stores at the beach. There are plenty of good seafood restaurants near the state park along with all kinds of shopping. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park with big spaces. The only thing missing are sewer connections at each camp site. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

I loved this place; close enough to shopping, supplies and fun activities but far enough away that you feel like you are really camping. Beaches were awesome, park clean and well cared for. Some of the water sites were too close together, but we moved to the pine area, very spacious sites and private. Deer wander around the campground. We stayed for a week and can't wait to go back.

Gorgeous. We had a waterfront site. This is the place to camp. We loved it here. Short drive to the beach. Rest rooms super clean. Lovely, but gave it an 8 for lack of sewer hookups. We stayed 4 days. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an extremely enjoyable campground. If you pick sites "in the boat ramp end" you are likely to get a nice bay view from your site. Most sites are spacious which we enjoy. Bath houses are in especially good condition, although we do disagree with the fact that they close the bathhouses for cleaning during the busiest morning hours. Super nice beaches close by which are very reachable if you bring a pedal bike. We liked it here a lot and we will be back. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

Great State Park. The beach was beautiful; allowing snorkeling, beach walking, swimming, and a shower. We have been to many State Parks and this one is on the top of our list... even comparing to The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Joshua Tree Nat'l Park, and more... Truly a great place to camp and benefit the Gulf. We recommend this place We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

Our second visit to this park was just as good as the first visit last year. Bayfront, not ocean sites are available, but hard to come by. Summer thunderstorms happened daily, so be prepared. The beach is maybe a mile away with a choice of protected jetty, or ocean side. Most anything available for rent, including golf carts. We have a site reserved for next summer. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the most used campground in the state. I have a 32ft 5th wheel and most sites are a little tight but usable. Good ocean and bay fishing, beach is fine. Good local eateries. Book early if you plan to stay in the summer. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

St Andrews is a great campground, but so different than the commercial campgrounds up the coast to the west. You really feel like you are roughing it, even in your RV. We were in the Marshland Campground, which had very close sites and wilderness all around it. The Pine Campground was a bit more open with larger sites. We were not sure we were actually going to get our 30 foot travel trailer into the site upon arrival, but managed to work our way into it after several attempts...and some nerve pills for my wife! We were a bit frustrated upon our arrival that our site had not been vacated yet by the previous camper after check out time, and we had to wait. The campground staff didn't seemed concerned that this had happened. However, we were able to park in the overflow lot until our site was ready. The grounds are amazing, and you can ride your bike to the beach and alligator pond in a very short period of time. I'm not sure if I would waste my time on the trip to Shell Island. It was pricey, the drivers highly suggested tipping, and we found nothing but broken shells upon our arrival. You will have just as much fun shelling, snorkeling, and dolphin watching at the Jetty in the park! I would have rated this campground higher if the sites were more accessible and if full hookup was available. However, we are already planning our trip back for next summer. The park stays packed daily, so they must be doing something right! We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Travel Trailer.
