During construction, approximately 75 campsites that will be available on a walk-in, first-come first-serve basis.
No camping reservations will be available from November 26, 2018 until December 17, 2018. The park will be conducting prescribed fire and maintenance projects in the campground during these dates. Some walk – in campsites may be available but please call to check on the availability of these campsites before arriving to the park.
Welcome to St. Andrews State Park
With the Gulf on one side and St. Andrews Bay on the other, those that crave swimming, snorkeling or surfing will be more than satisfied.
Theodore Tollofson evidently liked what he saw when he shipwrecked on what is now St. Andrews State Park during a 1929 hurricane. He homesteaded in his derelict boat for the next 25 years. Now, state park visitors can experience what kept “Teddy the Hermit” at St. Andrews—sugar white sands, emerald green waters and a vast array of ever-changing winged creatures since the park is a popular migratory stopover for numerous bird and butterfly species.
Besides boasting a mile-and-a-half of pristine beaches for fishing and swimming, St. Andrews also offers the chance for visitors to stroll through pines, dunes and coastal plant communities, or set up camp in a shady campground or primitive group area.
