This is a wonderful state Park, with trails through the woods and on the beach. If you are looking for natural beauty and the way nature naturally changes the landscape, this is the park for you.

Florida does state parks right. This is an award winning park that is "wild" but with all the facilities one needs...camping, swimming, hiking, fishing and a fabulous beach. It is my Florida favorite.

Little Talbot Island State Park is a rare adventure. It still remains beautiful and untouched even though it is such a wonderful place to visit for wind surfing, laying on the beach, taking a walk or flying a kite!

We were quite surprised at how simple, unspoiled, and truly beautiful the beach area was. Quivering sea foam met us on this windy day. Colors were muted and sea and sky blurred together in the midst even though it was mid-day. Few people and the fine white sand which squeaked in places made our walk memorable. Entrance cost of $5...

We walked almost the entire length of beach on a beautiful February day and enjoyed very minute. There were not many people around and we found many beautiful shells. Will go back often.

Fun for the whole family. Great spot for family photos. Ride bikes, run or relax. The beach is a great place for shell collectors.

We had a marvelous time on this beach. The water is shallow and the waves were not rough the day we visited. If you are visiting in the Winter months, I recommend dressing for cold weather, the air tends to be colder on the beach. We dressed in layers and took off our sweaters and jackets if we got too...

We are visiting this area for the first time and on our drive from the Jacksonville Airport to Amelia Island we stopped here. It cost us $5 to enter. There is lots of parking and so many pavilions with picnic tables and grills. The local families must really take advantage of this in warmer weather and if they don't shame... More

Very clean, soft, sand with beautiful view! Clean bath houses and easy walking out to the beach. Water too cold to go in but still very restful.

Love to go here for a day trip with the family. Water is usually sparkling and not very crowded. It is not as much fun when the tide is low so check the tide charts before going. Lots of small seashells for the kiddos to collect. The RV campsites really needs some help. Staff....Please do some road work to the... More
