Beautiful, beautiful park! We were there for two weeks in January and February. Stayed in the campground and had a wonderful beach-front campsite. The only con we found was that the roads in the campground were very narrow and were bordered by trees and trash...More

The campground is a great place to stay to visit St. Petersburg. The utilities worked well and were placed well. The bathrooms were clean. The staff is friendly and hard workers. Now for the things we didn’t like. The roads are ridiculous for a large...More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights just to get away from the city life and we loved it. We stayed in site #9, right near the waters edge facing the channel. It was just perfect. We had a constant breeze from the...More

Sites right on the water, although nobody really swims there because it’s so shallow and there are stingrays. Instead, we drove to North Beach, about 15 mins away, which is white sand and a nice spot to watch the sun go down. In the campsite,...More

This is always worth the trip. Day trip? Yes. Camping? Yes. Bring your bicycles. Rent a kayak or paddle board. Picnic areas available. Boat docks. Sites right on the gulf of Mexico. Only downside is there is not alcohol allowed.

Although many sites have waterfront access, there are stingrays so nobody really swims there. Plus it’s very shallow. Good for small boats or kayaks but for swimming, we went to North beach, 10 mins drive away.

I would not attempt it with a child. Between winds picking up suddenly that can cause rough waves, and some very strong tidal currents, it is not advisable or safe. I have kayaked from the campground over to Shell Key many... More
