St Joseph Peninsula State Park

Updated: Jan 30

Located at the north end of the Cape, the St. Joseph State Park opened in 1967 and was recently named the best state park in the nation.  Our park is home to over 2,700 acres of untamed beauty, including 9.5 miles of snow-white sand that has been ranked one of the best beaches in the United States by Dr. Beach.

Visitors can explore the unspoiled beauty of the Wilderness Preserve, walk through some of the tallest sand dunes in the southeast on trails to our pristine and uncrowded beaches, or launch kayaks and canoes and take in the beauty from the water.  Enthusiasts can also enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, and cycling.  The park provides excellent opportunities for bird watchers, with over 240 species, including the magnificent bald eagles.

The park rangers are knowledgeable and helpful, allowing you to make the most out of your visit to St. Joseph State Park, which is open from 8:00 AM until sunset, 365 days a year.

For the most current information on available amenities and conditions, visit St. Joseph Memorial Peninsula State Park or call 850-227-1327. Please remember, for your safety and to protect the park’s ecosystems, please obey all posted signage.
