This is my all time favorite beach. The beach is beautiful, calm for the kids. The sand is amazing and hardly anyone is there. It's beautiful! Check it out!

Love, love, love this beach. It’s clean and quiet. It’s family oriented. Not loud and crowded. It’s even better if you camp there. Pay the fee, go to this park. It’s worth it.

A secluded, perfect beach -- and it's a state park! The park has camping, kayaking, trails and more. It's a great getaway from all the over-built beach areas in the Panhandle! The $5 admission (per vehicle, up to 8 people) is a bargain. The toilet...More

My wife and I rented a kayak to be dropped off for us as we were on vacation. We absolutely loved it. The views were top notch and the water was very calm. The water or the bottom seemed to be black, eerie but way...More

We drove our bikes from Santa Rosa beach, wanting to do some riding in the park. The trails are lovely, but be prepared that they are sandy trail rides, NOT paved and easy going. The sand is hard to ride in and was discouraging to...More

We kayaked part of western lake and hiked the trail. It is a beautiful place to go relax and be in nature. We didn't go out on the beach but it was a beautiful stretch of sand.

Grayton Beach is special in its own way because there is no development at all on that stretch of beach. I think the water is even prettier than other parts of Santa Rosa Beach in that you really see the vibrant green colors! The $5...More

I frequent state parks and Florida has some of the finest in the land. I like this park as it offers a great beach location. There are no televisions, telephones, or internet service. The kitchen is minimally stocked so come prepared. Bring paper products, dish...More

A great state park. Reservations required months ahead of time so be prepared 11 months out to get your spot. Wonderful Florida foliage separates each campsite providing the privacy. Only a half mile to the beach! White soft sand hugs your feet and the water...More

Either Grayton or Topsail state parks offer campsites within walking distance of miles of quiet beach. Topsail has more acreage, so a few more trails through the woods. Grayton has a great trail through the dunes, starting... More

I don't remember seeing bikes to rent at Grayton beach. They don't even have a little store anymore. Other parks do like St Andrews. I believe Seaside area has bike rentals though and you could ride them to this park.
