 General Comments
On an island off mainland at the south end of St. Pete. This is one of our all-time favorite campgrounds. It's a great vacation spot with a very tropical setting. One of the top 10 beaches in the U.S. is within the park. Bike trail out to beach. Lots of restaurants on nearby St. Pete Beach.
