I hope that you are able to visit St. George Island State Park to go camping, fishing, kayaking, birding, shelling or just to enjoy the beach. The park has something for everyone.

St. George Island State Park has 60 campsites that fill up quickly, so be sure to make reservations in advance. Reservations for camping can be made online by calling 1-800-326-3521, TDD 888-433-0287.

Pets are permitted in the campground, paved surfaces, and on the nature trails, but are not permitted on the beach or in any of the park facilities. Service animals are permitted in all areas of the park. View our Pet Policy.

The East End Special Use Area is at the far eastern end of the park. Access is limited to up to 20 vehicles at a time and it is extremely popular when the Spanish mackerel and pompano are migrating through in March and April. There is an additional fee of $6.00 plus tax, per person to enter this area in a vehicle. There is no charge for annual pass holders, bicyclists or pedestrians. Please contact the Ranger Station to check for availability.

St. George Island State Park is always seeking the aid of volunteers in many areas including, special events, ranger station, turtle monitoring, bird stewardship, interpretive programs, general maintenance, and photography. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Melody Brennan at (850) 927-2111 or

I'd love to see you on the island!
