It's always nice to go to the state park beach during spring break so it's not as crowded as the other beaches. The beaches were clean and the state park bathroom was clean as well.

I took my 6 year old grandchild to St. Andrews as a day trip. We walked around Gator Lake and saw 3 alligators and several birds. Easy trail to follow and extremely scenic. Afterward we watched pelicans in a feeding frenzy and then went beach combing. So much to do there. Great place to take young kids.

I was in Dothan visiting family and wanted to bring my son to the beach. I wanted a quiet, clean beach to enjoy for the day. St. Andrews is so very nice. The water was crystal clear. The sand was so fine and white. We appreciated the clean restrooms/changing rooms and the rentals available such as chairs, floats, etc. The... More

This is a very beautiful parkl with very nice well maintained facilities. There is easy access to the east end of the beach at Panama City and to the beach by the rock jetty where you can watch boats, swim and snorkel.

We had heard about St. Andrews State Park before coming to FL, so this was definitely on our "places to go" list. It definitely didn't disappoint. St. Andrews is located 3 miles east of Panama City off Thomas Drive (State Rd. 392). The park is open every day from 8 a.m. until sunset. There is an entrance fee. The walk... More

St Andrews state Park is a beautiful place to spend a day. The beaches are clean and not too crowded. They have a camp ground and a little store. The entry fee is $8 per car. There are pavilions and even a jetty pool that is great to let the kids swim in cause the jettys block the waves.

Walk through this park a few times. It is only $2 per person a day. In the park you will see deer, frogs, birds and alligators, there are many more animals that I didn't see that are there. There is a pier that you can walk out on. The are fantastic boardwalk like trails and ocean look outs.
