Grayton Beach State Park invites you to take part in Beach Clean-up Marathon Day, Monday, July 9th from 12-2pm. Join us as we clean up our beautiful beaches after the holiday weekend.

Grayton Beach State Park is one of the most popular state parks in Florida, with massive dunes, winding trails, abundant wildlife, and shimmering 100-acre Western Lake, one of many coastal dune lakes gracing Scenic Highway 30A along Scenic 30A in South Walton (SoWal).
Grayton Beach consistently ranks among the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the United States, providing an idyllic setting for swimming, sunbathing and surf fishing and provides the backdrop for golden sunrises and silver moonlit evenings.
Not to be missed, the short nature trail that winds through the coastal forest where scrub oaks and magnolias stand, bent and twisted by the salt winds. Hikers and bicyclists can enjoy more than four miles of trails throughout the pine flatwoods.
The trail has a moderate degree of difficulty and hikers are asked to wear/bring the following: hat, long pants, insect repellant, and closed toe shoes or hiking boots, bottled water. Sorry, but pets are not allowed. Persons 16 and under must be accompanied by a parent.
