Enjoying a day at the park on the Cape

In Gulf County, family fun comes in all shapes, sizes and places. We like to think of ourselves as one big natural playground, all preassembled and ready for enjoyment. From America's Best State Park (St. Joseph Peninsula State Park) on Cape San Blas to Veteran's Memorial Park in Beacon Hill there is something for everyone.Pack up your picnic basket and head to a park!

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park

At the tip of the Cape lies St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, home of America's Best Beach and America's Best State Park! Visit the park for a day or camp over night. Whatever you choose, it is a secluded paradise far away from reality.
