Awesome primitive campsites on secluded beach.

St. George Island State Park is gorgeous. The drive over the bridge is breathtaking. The lighthouse stand at the end of the bridge. Take a right to drive along the Gulf Coast to the park's entrance. Beautiful beaches and day use areas were open. Some areas were closed for hurricane damage repair.

The RV campsite is nice. Some of the spaces are maybe a little crowded. I opted for a primitive campsite at the end of a 5 mile hiking trail. Trail was alternately hard-packed and ankle-deep soft sand. Very difficult to pull my cart (which was not the right choice for this task). I struggled with the cart which blew a tire .5 miles into the hike. I'm too stubborn to turn back. 

Very difficult getting to the campsite, but once there if was awesome. I had the community campsite to my self. The sunset was amazing.

Had trek back the next morning with a limping cart. Lessons learned, get a better sand cart and for goodness sakes, take less stuff.
