The only thing bad we can say about this beach is that it's parking is extremely limited. $3 to park all day as well worth it. If you go, I would walk the 1.25 miles to Stump Pass. We always see a lot of marine...More

Great area and wasn't crowded. Car park is a bit small and fills up quickly but beach area is long and people spread out. Sea lovely and warm and good for kids.

Quiet beach complete with restrooms. I enjoyed quiet time there as it is not as busy as the other 3 beaches. All are great as they are on the GULF OF MEXICO!

Take the time to walk this beautiful part of Manasota Key. The path through the trees on the way back is an interesting way to experience old Florida.

We arrived just after 12 on a Sunday. We had to wait in line (two cars already waiting) to park ($3 fee, bring cash!) but the flash rain chased many people to their cars so the line moved quickly. I recommend arriving before 10AM if...More

This park runs the entire end of Manasota Key so you have access to the bay and the gulf of Mexico the full length of the park. Vehicle traffic is limited to the first part of the park and parking lot. There are picnic tables...More

This was our first time to the area and we found this state park our first day. What a wonderful place! The beach is beautiful and the water is crystal clear. This was our favorite place during our vacation.

Went there as we used to and was so disappointed in the prices and selection of wines. Much to pricey.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach. You can however have a leashed dog in the picnic areas.

The park is called "Stump Pass Beach State Park". It's a long hike down to Stump Pass, shorter walk via path or beach to Middle Beach. If you don't want to hike at all, not to worry, the beach is right by the parking lot.
