Fodor's Review

Formerly known as John U. Lloyd Beach State Park, this 310-acre park was renamed Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park in honor of the duo who led efforts to change the “colored beach” into a state park in 1973 and create appropriate access for residents. Native sea grapes, gumbo-limbo trees, and other native plants offer shade. Nature trails and a marina are large draws; canoeing on Whiskey Creek is also popular. The beaches are excellent, but beware of mosquitoes in summer Amenities: parking (fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; sunrise.
