Visiting the beach in December, there were very few other people around. The guard at the entrance to the park said it is seldom crowded. The beaches are long, with fine white sand, and beautiful.

Most people go to Little Talbot for the beach, but we went for the hiking trails. We asked the ranger about the trails but she gave us bad information. The trail is about 4 miles long in a loop but the last 2 miles of the loop is along the beach, which is impassible at high tide. We knew this,... More

We spent a day hiking and cycling and really enjoyed ourselves. Nice bike trails - shady and pleasant when it was hot. Beach is very good.

On of the last beaches in Florida you can still drive up to the surf and enjoy the water. Right in the City of Jacksonville. Great for sunrise breakfast and a little surf fishing

Not a lot of people. the first beach is the best beach. Good shelling. Kind of a neat view if you keep driving to the end and then its a good walk to the beach there

I love stopping on Talbot Island state park. It's a very inexpensive way to spend your free time. I love exploring the coast line and watching the birds. The parks are all very clean and safe.

This beach become your own little hide away. Equipped with bathrooms and changing rooms. Also covered picnic areas. You will want to bring a bag of some kind as... More

I was so happy to see a natural beach setting with out many people, lovely! If you drive down past the main parking area you will find several picnic areas and wide open unspoiled beaches and nature at it's finest. I went on a week day and it was quiet, peaceful and there were plenty of sea shells to collect.... More
