The parking is limited but worth waiting for a spot to open. Interesting place with trails to wander, you discover an opening to the water here and there. Lots of boats pulled up, people fishing, boats coming and going. The beach was pretty, picnic tables dotted through out. We enjoyed exploring!

Stump Pass has a history of shallow water and large sand bars. Dredging is again underway (March 2017). This time a jetty will be added. This may improve the pass and last longer than previous dredgings.

Stump Pass is like so many of the FL state parks, well kept with great facilities and nice staff. Bill, the ranger on site was super helpful, and the beach was perfect for walking, watching dolphins and shark tooth hunting. Get there early, b/c the lot isn't too big and fills up quickly

This is a wonderful "free" beach. Even though the parking is across the road, it's not a far walk. You can drop off your coolers, chaurs, blanets, etc, then park your car and your things will still be at the drop off spot. The beach is clean and wide. .. plenty of space for everyone. We love this beach.

Beautiful, secluded, nature trails and native wildlife. The waters are shades of aqua, blues and turquoise. The sand is fine grains and there are a fair amount of shells. Parking is $3.00 and is very limited. They do have restrooms and a soda machine. Crowded during the day, not so much in the evening.

You have to drive 3 or 4 minutes farther than Englewood Beach, but it's worth it if you are looking for a quieter spot. Parking is limited, but that's part of the charm. This end of Manasota Key is not nearly as crowded as the more popular and easier to get to Englewood Beach. However, this end of the key... More

Spent a day there last winter, the parking lot is small so you need to get there early or plan on circling until you can find a spot. Pets are not allowed on the beach so they should be left at home. The walk from the parking lot to the end of Stump Pass is long and you meander along... More

A wide beach style park with lots of sunbathing, walking and shelling areas. Limited parking but worth an afternoon visit. A good number of birds nest on the east side of the park and a nature trail flows through the area. Canoes and kayaks can be launched at the park.

We stopped here by boat to chill on the beach for a few hours. It was beautiful and very quiet. We only saw a handful of people passing thru which was great for a peaceful enjoyable day. You can see the ocean on one side and a canal on the other. It was a very windy day so I didn't... More
