Brian Addison, Park Manager

I want to welcome you to St. Andrews State Park! Come relax and take in the beauty of St. Andrews State Park while enjoying all sorts of opportunities the park has to offer. While visiting the park, you can enjoy a variety of activities such as sunbathing, swimming, camping, boating, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing and watching beautiful sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico. If fishing is on your itinerary, you can fish from the shoreline, the lagoon pier or on our ocean pier that extends 500 feet out into the Gulf of Mexico. There is something for everyone to enjoy with an abundance of recreational opportunities and wildlife activity. 

While visiting St. Andrews State Park, please familiarize yourself with the color coded warning flag system for current water conditions at the entrance to the park and the beach.

If you require any special accommodations during your park visit, please call one of the telephone numbers listed for the park to reserve beach wheelchairs. Requests made in advance help to ensure reasonable accommodations are made for all visitors.  If you would like to make other arrangements off of the park, we allow free delivery into the park.  We have several businesses in Panama City Beach and Panama City for beach wheelchairs and ADA approved power-driven mobility devices. St. Andrews State Park is committed to making all reasonable efforts to ensure that our facilities, programs and services are accessible to and usable by all.

We have two nature trails and Shell Island for you to explore and observe the various wildlife, native plant communities and unspoiled beachfront.

We look forward to assisting you as you enjoy your visit and recreate at St. Andrews State Park. Take time to visit this beautiful and diverse park located on Florida's “Emerald Coast."
