Fabulous beach, skip the others

This is a great beach if you want to get away from crowds. It's $5.00 to get in and park. It's a long walk to the beach but not a bad walk, most of it is over boardwalk. There are... read more

This is a great beach if you want to get away from crowds. It's $5.00 to get in and park. It's a long walk to the beach but not a bad walk, most of it is over boardwalk. There are bathrooms, showers, water fountains, and changing rooms. There were very few people there, NO CONDOS ANYWHERE! Just beautiful beaches. The... More

We stayed here June 22nd thru June 25th and had a good time! The area has quite an offering of activities and places to visit along with a few "nearby" restaurants. The beaches in this area are some of the best in this state (our opinion) and not crowded. The campground is nice. If you have to use the showers/restrooms,... More

This is a wonderful state park. We come every summer. The beach is spectacular. It is very close to many things to do such as visiting Fernandina Beach area and the historic district. We need other beaches also on the trip for Johndawg. Since state parks don't allow dogs. We canoe and bike in this area and it is so... More

One of the best beaches in North Florida! Get there early, as the park fills up quickly, and once the tide comes in there is limited access to the beach.

My fiancé and I stayed for 3 nights. We loved kayacking at Kayack Amelia, just a mile north of our camp site. My fiancé got sunburned in just a few hours of kayacking with sunscreen on, so be sure to reapply. Another thing to be cautious of is the tide gets really low in the late afternoon; while heading back... More

This place is great and worth the entrance fee. It worth the drive to get there. You go over nice bridges and there are Food venders on the side of the road. Make sure you take some bug spray.

Beautiful State Park. We camped here and the sites are very private and are gravel/dirt, but many are quite small. Take care to not exceed the size limit on your site, or you may not make it it. It's a quiet campground. The bathhouses/restrooms are older and during our stay, were not the cleanest as we've come to expect at... More

We went to Little Talbot Island on a Sunday. Ranger told us no swimming at the south end, not even your toes. That area is below the main parking, which is bookended by two bath houses. The bath houses have changing areas, and toilets. There are beach showers, too. In front of the parking lot are pavilions, where we saw... More

I live at the beach so the landscape was not very different except for the absence of condos lining a pristine beach. I arrived around 8 am. Entrance fee was $4US. There were only two cars in the first beach parking lot and both belonged to the park staff. I had the beach to myself. It is a short stroll... More
