St Marks FL – US Fish and Wildlife Service (Wildlife Refuge • Gulf Coast)
Number of visits: 2
Bathroom: pit • Water: no
A really interesting place. The entrance and Visitors Center are five miles off the highway, then it's another five miles to the payoff, the lighthouse and actual Gulf of Mexico.
The Visitors Center looks quite deluxe, but both times I have been hurrying to make sunset at the beach, and both times I forgot to return in the morning.
I was here in 2010 also. There was a Wood Crane in the marsh by the lighthouse that really impressed me with his size and the violent power of his beak.
Lots of mosquitoes.
As perfect a sunset spot as there is.
