Can be crowded in season but there are is normally plenty of parking. This area is all natural and there is access to the beach. Bathroom facilities are available while enjoying a walk along the beach or short trails.

We are from the east coast of Florida, so it was a treat to explore a new area by boat. This was unusual for us, the three islands, where a boat can be beached and then walk over to see the Gulf. The water all along is a beautiful color and the occasional dolphin sighting was marvelous to watch. We... More

This is a beautiful, wild beach. Lots of picnic areas to sit and enjoy the beach and surrounding dunes. Nature trails with information placards throughout.

Right now they are doing a dredge of the channel at Stump Pass and replenishing the beach. However there is still lots of beach on both the Gulf side and Inter-coastal Water Way to walk and enjoy. Usually there are dolphins in the channel or in the ICW.

As always it was very busy and parking lot was full, we had to wait about 15 minutes to find a parking spot, but it is always worth the wait. The Park Rangers are great at keeping the traffic under control. It's a great location to launch our SUP and kayak, head south to the tip, hang-out, soak up the... More

The day we visited Stump Pass Beach it was overcast, and windy. The wave action was great to watch, however not inviting to go in water. Due to weather there were very few visitors. which was good for us. Like being at a private beach.Good shelling.

My family took a trip to Englewood, FL to visit my aging grandparents. While there, we were told by some locals about this park called Stump pass. They added it was a hidden gem. My family and I went there and found out this was true. The beach was amazing. It is a state beach, so there are no hotels... More

Early morning outing in May for exercise and views. It's a glorious beach to walk along with the bonus of finding turtle trails where they have laid eggs in the sand overnight. Look out for Maggie, the local turtle lady whose mission is to protect turtles and explain their way of life. Incubation period is 50 days.
