Gorgeous sandy beach. Clean restrooms. Easy to walk the beach and feel the surf and the wonderful soft sand between the toes.

This was a great park, we got to do bit of trail walking, see an alligator, snorkel and fish. The beach was great, lots of room for kids to play beach games.

Our Family has an annual pass to St. Andrews! It has beautiful views! We enjoy walking through the park and walking out on the pier. The grounds are kept clean. We enjoy looking at the wildlife at the park including the deer!

This was our first visit to the "kiddie pool" and we loved it. The water is very calm which is great for the lite ones. You don't have to worry about rough waves knocking them over. There are pavilions to have lunch under, outdoor showers,...More

Is there in and out privileges for campers? We plan on going out to dinner one of the nights we are camping out and possible lunch for one of the other days we are there. Wondering if we have to pay the parking fee again if we choose to leave and return. Thanks!

Once you stay in the campground, you could leave and come back as you please. Need to leave your assigned number display in your windshield. If it is after hours use the assigned code to get back in.
We have rented a waterfront site for tent camping in June. Now, I am wondering about safety being so close to the water. Are alligators ever found in Grand Lagoon? I know it is Florida, but how concerned should I be with a couple of 5 year olds??
