You might also consider going a little farther east to T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joesph Peninsula S.P. The beach is about a 5 minute walk from either of the two camp grounds there. What I really like about it is that the beach is so vast, that you can walk for miles without seeing another person.
Continuing east, St. George Island S.P. (there is a bridge) is also nice, but I prefer St, Joseph
In the other direction, Gulf Islands National Sea Shore is also a wonderful place, if you can do without electric hookups.
