Site spacing varies considerably with some very close but others with more buffer space between. Site #132 was level gravel/sand with water and electric service but no sewer. Pretty waterfront with expansive view of Grand Lagoon from the bridge to the inlet.
Digital OTA tv reception was good for the major commercial networks. AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE service was dependable.
A short bicycle ride gave us a choice of several beaches with differing wind exposures (but it would have been a long walk to the beach). Some nice nature trails, abundant wildlife, a well-stocked camp store and very clean showers make St Andrews a real treat, especially for the price. Many restaurants within a mile or two of park entrance. Camping World about 10 miles away. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is on a peninsula at Panama City Beach. There is lots of shade. Our site was very unlevel. It had also rained a lot and we had lots of mud in our site. It was tough walking around. Felt like the sites were very close together for a state park. The inner roads of the park are in pretty bad shape. Was disappointed in the upkeep. Lots of nice trails and access to the beach although the beach is a ways away from the camping area. We stayed here a week and it rained every day we were here. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground on the water (bay). Our site had 50 amp electric and water. Two dump sites available. 14 day limit like most state parks. Some sights were good for satellite, ours would pick up one bird through the trees and lost signal as the wind blew the trees. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here for 8 nights, and you'd think after the length of time we would have complaints. This isn't the case.

The park was clean and spacious. The bathhouses were clean and very well maintained. We watched the staff routinely close off the bathhouse for cleaning. It was, by far, the best location we have ever stayed. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Tent.

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.

Stayed in the Pine Grove section on the lagoon and had a nice strip of our own private beach and a terrific view. Park is kept exceptionally clean by the volunteer hosts. The beach is just a short bike ride. Rangers and staff very friendly and helpful. One of the better state parks you will find anywhere. Have put this on an "A list" for return visits. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

J. Micheals is only a few minutes away and one of the best emerald coast seafood restaurants. Casual and friendly.

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.

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. We camped at St Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
