St. George Island State Park

St. George Island State Park is this week’s photo spotlight.  We launched from one of the boat ramps in the park and paddled over to this sandy beach at Gap Point.  There is primitive camping available at Gap Point. We spent the day out catching slimy Gafftopsail catfish and playing on the beach in the Apalachicola Bay.  There were several others out kayaking and enjoying a day of fishing and sunshine.  St. George Island State Park has the Gulf of Mexico on the south side and the Apalachicola Bay on the north side.  You can access both sides and enjoy the diverse landscape the state park has to offer.  There are miles of white sandy beaches to play on in the Gulf.  The Bayside is accessed by a hiking trail or by boat.  You can also get a campsite within the park.  St. George Island is a great place to come and spend the day on the water or hiking around for some hidden geocaches.
