Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park

Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park – on the Gulf Coast, in far western Florida – has minimal light pollution and affords breathtaking opportunities to witness a truly dark sky. Staff are working toward a designation as a Dark Sky Park with the International Dark Sky Association. Please note that all Florida State Parks close 15 minutes after sunset; only registered campers or after-hours pass holders are allowed entry after dark. One option for gaining after-hours access to the park to enjoy the dark skies is to reserve a campsite in the family campground online, or by calling (850)927-2111. Otherwise, if you are a Florida State Parks Family Annual Pass holder interested in gaining access to the preserve after sunset, please visit the office during regular office hours and sign up for an after-hours permit.
