Steven Dale

It gives me great pleasure to announce my return to John U. Lloyd Beach State Park as the new Park Manager. After serving as manager at several parks from around the state, my career has brought me full circle back to the park where I worked for twelve years as the Assistant Park Manager.

As the new Park Manager; I remain committed to the Florida Park Service mission and the continued success of John U. Lloyd Beach State Park. One of my top priority management goals will be to provide exceptional visitor service in a safe and clean environment. The days are getting longer and the water is warming up so why not come out and pay us a visit?

John U. Lloyd Beach State Park is one of 27 sites that will take part in the 37th Annual Waterway Cleanup. Please see the information posted in the event section of this website.
