This place is beautiful....it is a natural beach with the beauty that a beach should possess. I was so thankful that we came across this place while out randomly driving in the area. I would love to come back to the Jacksonville area just to spend more time here. Take a day and a chair and just enjoy the beach....so... More

A group of friends and I visited the Blackrock trail on Little Talbot Island, Jacksonville today. The parking is $3.00 based on the honor system at the pull off. You can take your bikes and ride the paved trail, but we took the path that leads to the water. The path is beautiful. Sandy walkway is ok for sandals, but... More

Stopped at an access spot and paid entrance fee. Beautiful spot to have lunch and get off road for a bit. Great scenery. Nice shady picnic tables. Beach access was a nice walk through trees. Driftwood on beach incredible. High cliff dunes so be careful when tide is coming in. Happy qe stopped and kids could explore

This beach is my mom's favorite. We visited on a weekday last month. Low crowds, clean beach, decent changing area. Lots of ocean life. Crabs, fish, DOLPHINS!!!

Little Talbot Island is a beautiful beach with white sands, and plentiful shells when I was there in the summer. It wasn't as crowded as most beaches and there are also trails at the state park. It was actually quit serene and secluded that day. After a nice long relaxing stroll down the beach, we returned to find our bags... More

I love the white, sandy beaches at Little Talbot. It can be a trek to get there with your beach stuff so pack a lunch and stay awhile. They have tons of wildlife and a great walking trail too.

It worth the drive to get there. Very quiet and secluded. A good place for a picnic. Not sure if it is a good place for kid to swim. We didn't see any life guard where we were. We got there early, and the see was still misty, very magical. At noon, it get really hot, so we decided to... More

We took our first trip to this park last year (2014) and it was great. We stayed in the campground and enjoyed the fishing and beach availability. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained and the sites were nicely shaded. The only drawback is that the sites are pretty tiny (at least for the tent sites). But other than that,... More

Nice hiking (don't forget the bug spray), the beach is great and is never over crowded. This is my favorite state park in Florida. Well worth the price.

we took our kids here to see the ocean for the first time. It was awesome and brought back many memories for me as a child.
