Welcome to T. H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park
Stretching 20 miles into the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, St. Joseph Peninsula is a true wildlife haven. Its powdery beaches and bayside salt marshes are nesting grounds for sea turtles, shore birds and the endangered St. Andrews beach mouse.
Its campgrounds are nestled beneath the tall pines just over the dunes, so campers are lulled to sleep by the sound of the gentle gulf waves. Swim, fish, and enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park offers a variety of camping facilities, 119 campsites with water, electricity, picnic table and grills. A special tent area is available for youth groups and seven cabins are furnished with kitchens, fireplaces, bathrooms, heat and air. For a primitive experience, campers can hike or kayak into the Wilderness Preserve. Daytime visitors can enjoy picnicking, beach activities and boat ramp access to St. Joseph Bay. Fishing and snorkeling are great ways to enjoy the abundant marine life in the gulf and bay. Favorite catches include sea trout, redfish, flounder, spanish mackerel, whiting, pompano, blue crabs and bay scallops. Hike along the gulf beach, bay shore and interior passageways of nature trails to observe the park’s wildlife and natural beauty.
A map of the preserve is available at the entrance station. The park is noted as an excellent birding and wildlife observation area. During fall migration the peninsula is an important stopover point for a variety of bird species. The park has one of the most productive sea turtle and shore bird nest beaches in the panhandle.
