This is a natural look at the great Atlantic Ocean. Lots of wildlife. Well taken care of. The staff were all courteous. We will definitely be going back. The camping was all shady during the heat of the day.

Most coming to Jacksonville will head to Atlantic Beach, JAX Beach, Ponte Vedra, or St. Aug. Or, heading north, will go to Amelia Island & Fernandina Beach, passing right by Little Talbot Island State Park. They will be missing out. It has miles of beautiful beach that are basically deserted and admission into the start park is only $5 a... More

Coming from a tropical island, I wasn't expected to be impressed by a stateside beach. Boy, was I wrong. There were so few people (I'll never understand why) so it felt like we had our own private beach. The water was nice and warm, the sand was smooth, and it was an overall, enjoyable experience.

I read about Little Talbot Island State Park in Trip Advisor before we went. A lady commented on how few people were there. We went on a morning and found that to be true until lunch time. At 9:00 there were only five other people on the five mile beach! Just a nice quiet time to enjoy my wife!

Camped here for 2 nights. Very shaded sites. So many trees, each site is fairly private. The campground is on one side of the road and the beach is on the other side of the road. The beach is quite a walk from the campground, especially if you are hauling beach chairs, etc. There is a non-shaded parking lot at... More

Affordable! Shower houses are big and there are 2. They are easy to get to no matter what site you are at. It's nice to have a hot shower to rinse off the salt water. The beach is right across the street and free for campers. Fishing dock and nature trails. Even a treasure hunt nature trail! Absolutely Fantastic!!!!

This is one of my favorite places in Northeast Florida! Beach is very nice with not many people on them. Great place for a walk on the beach. The campgrounds are also nice with clean bathrooms and lots of space. There is a pass-code gate that closes at night to the camp grounds. Don't leave food out because the raccoons... More

Many areas of Florida remain natural and wild, but this is one of the most accessible and also uncrowded. A unique beauty.

Found a ton of seashells - not like Sanibel, however. The shells here were "older" and less colorful. North end of the beach best for shelling.

Great place to go if you want the beach to be quiet and take beautiful pix. Many things to photograph, at low tide you are able to walk out pretty far and find hermits and jellies and crabs. There were only two other ppl in viewing distance my entire time here-weekday, so it was perfect.
