St. Andrews State Park Reopens Campground

St. Andrews State Park, located in Florida‘s Bay County east of Panama City Beach, reopened the initial phase of its campground last month following its devastation due to Hurricane Michael more than three years ago.

According to a report, Scott Robinson, the park manager said that the campground’s first phase comprises approximately 65 campsites—each of which is available to guests who have mobile homes, tents, or travel trailers.

Robinson added that there were sewer valves placed at each campsite in addition to rehabilitating the campground. The whole campground was also raised approximately 3 feet to stop future flooding, something he noted was particularly significant considering it sits on Lower Grand Lagoon.

“[Hurricane Michael] damaged a lot of the trees and infrastructure,” he said. “This project accomplished two things, which were repairs from (the storm and) incorporating stormwater retention.”

As of Monday, two additional phases of the campground were under construction.  Although Robinson did not have the exact date they could open, he did say they are planning to add 95 additional campsites. There were about 40 campers at the site Monday.
