St. George Island

In between Panama City Beach and Tallahassee, you’ll find St. George Island. During the day, the island’s beaches provide family fun on the water. At night, it becomes a mecca for stargazing in Florida!

On one of the prettiest islands on Florida’s forgotten coast, the Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park has little light pollution. As a result, you’ll be able to experience breathtaking opportunities to experience a truly dark sky!

You won’t find better stargazing in Florida than this spot on the panhandle. The park’s staff is currently working with the International Dark Sky Association to become Florida’s second Dark Sky Park!

Because the park closes 15 minutes after sundown, you will have to make special accommodations to experience the night sky. Reserve a campsite through Reserve America or go to the ranger’s office to obtain an after-hours permit to see the stars!
