Pack a picnic and spend the day roaming among the old pines, seagrape trees, historical old oaks and even a tunnel to the beach directly across from the snack bar at this well known beach side family park.

Great park. Really pretty. You can access the beach with a short walk. Bring your own chairs or you can rent the whole setup. Go to the beach building enterance to drop off your gear better than carring it from parking lot.

Great reprieve amongst the Beach crowd. Great trails to run and ride bikes. Parks for kids to play- and fun to watch the yachts sail down the ICW.

decided to go to the beach through Hugh Taylor, parking was ample, and we could change there. Dressing rooms could have been a bit cleaner. Rented an umbrella and the young man brought it and set it up for us very helpful

This is a great state park if you want something different to do while at the beach. On the west side of A1A, there are paved and unpaved routes that you can take. There are tree canopies to keep you cool or wide open spaces. Part of the park is up against the intracoastal and you can enjoy the view... More

Well worth a visit! We only had time for a short walk and were fortunate to see this really wonderful giant banyan tree (hopefully I spelled that correctly). The park is beautiful and upon my next visit I would consider renting a bicycle and going through the park.

We only pain to park for an hour so we walked down from the beach and took some pictures of the boats and yachts. We were going to rent some bikes but we were invited to a bar-b-cue and had to hurry back. Take a history tour!

Very scenic and relaxing time away from the beach scene. Rented a couple of bikes with a pull behind trailer for the kids. It is a very easy ride with a nice view of the Inter-coastal Waterway. Would be great for a nice walk or jog as well.
