Consistently voted one of world’s most beautiful and pristine beaches (and frequently hailed as the #1 beach in America), Grayton Beach State Park is a 2,000-acre national treasure that features camping, hiking, various YOLO board and eco tour activities, biking trails through sand dunes and pine flatwoods, two rare coastal dune lakes, a boat ramp, and, of course, Grayton’s stunning sugar-white sand beaches.

Grayton Beach State Park features a campground loop with 34 rustic sites, and while Grayton’s campground is perhaps not quite as refined as Topsail Hill State Preserve’s RV facility further west on Scenic Highway 30A, hey, isn’t that the whole point?


It’s the first day of summer and we went LIVE from Grayton Beach State Park. Tune in again tonight around 5 p.m. C.S.T. for a very special announcement about some amazing news from The 30A Company!

The park features 30 very nice two-bedroom, one-bath “cabins” (they’re more like nice duplex apartments) for rent, each with central heating and cooling and a full kitchen.
