    Florida's Top State Park

    St. Joseph Bay

    White sandy beaches, miles of pristine shoreline, and thousands of species of exotic wildlife are only a few reasons that Florida makes the top lists of states to visit year after year.  They made the list again this year for one of the top 10 state parks at T.H Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park.  

    Located in the Florida panhandle between the Gulf of Mexico and St Joseph Bay, St Joseph State Park is one of the top visited state parks in Florida.  Visitors come from all over to partake in the many activities such as fishing, bird-watching, canoeing and kayaking.  The most popular activity though is snorkeling.  Visitors can snorkel over the shallow grass beds to collect bay scallops.  Although the season is short-lived, starting in July and ending in September.

    St Joseph State Park is one of the last remaining habitats of coastal sand pine scrub.  Because of this, some of the three hiking trails that wind through the park require the use of a permit.  Unspoiled ecosystems are declining in number and we have to do what we can to protect them, which means limiting the amount unnecessary disturbances. But, they are a sight to see if you have the chance to get up close. 

    Visitors can also camp at either of the two nearby campgrounds.  Both Shady Pines and Gulf Breeze are just a short walk from the state park and offer over 100 different camping sites with RV accommodations up to 40' in length.  Spots fill up quickly on the weekends, so book early.
