A very nice peaceful place. If you are sick of the crowdness of Jax beach, please come to little talbot. You will enjoy the "private beach" so much. We also did canoeing one time and we paddled to a sandy beach. Everybody was amazed by the beautiful sandy beach. I highly recommend it. You can also do kayaking too.

This is a wide white sand beach with tidal pools and nice facilities. Great place to fish and camp on the inner coastal across from the beach. A great place to go with family, especially if your not wanting beer drinking slobs cursing and acting crazy.

Campsites are beautiful - some under live oak, some near the marsh. The beach is wide and beautiful, with many kinds of shells. The bathrooms - both the campground and at the beaches - we're the cleanest we probably have seen on any camping trip! The only minor annoyance are the Mosquitos. There is a pretty little nature trail and... More

Nice, quiet, yet a bit isolated from civilization..but that's ok! Just pack well, only groceries are about 10miles north on Amelia Island. Beach is quiet and across the road from campground. Campground is on the marsh side, very pretty. Sites are close and most are small but everyone while we were there were quiet. Clean bathrooms, good showers. Nice place!

Here now near the end of our trip. If you are looking for a peaceful place this is it. Kayaked every day and bicycled most days. Wonderful place for both. Seems a much more remote location than it really is, but the island had been left natural. The beach is wonderful and the facilities are well maintained. If you like... More

This island has been left in it's natural state---it is how Florida used to be before commercial development started. The beaches are great, with changing rooms and showers available. The park rangers offer different educational programs for adults and children.

We stopped for the day recently on a driving trip with our two kids -- ages 7 and 10. We walked on the trails and hung out at the beach and had a lovely day. The beach is peaceful and beautiful. We were there on a Saturday and it was not crowded at all; maybe the cool-ish weather kept people... More

If you've never been, please go. Little Talbot is not your typical state park. It has shelters for cooking out or having a family gathering but the best part is the beach. It's absolutely amazing!

Been there twice thus far. First time it was so cold it was almost unbearable but we braved it to see the visiting Snowy Owl! Saw her - it was beautiful. Second visit we took 2 of the grand children to gather sea shells on a sunny, less cool day - it is not Sanibel but they had a good... More

We loved our 4 mile hike on Little Talbot Island. It's great to see unspoiled beaches. We found a whole sand dollar, many, many shells for the kids. You must watch closely for the trail back into the forest or you will miss it. Great way to spend the afternoon.
