The main reason I like Little Talbot is that it's a natural seashore, no hotels, restaurants or other businesses. I enjoy shelling and depending on the tide I usually find a few special shells. While walking along the shore we saw a jellyfish swim by and on another visit a ghost crab scampering to his home. There's pavilions, restrooms, and... More

I was surprised to see that Tripadvisor has Talbot Island listed as Little Talbot Island and Big Talbot Island. I'm a native of Jacksonville and have visited the park since the 1950s when I was 5 years old. We've always referred to it as Talbot Island. Anyway, that doesn't matter. What is important is that it's a beautiful state park... More

This was a nice park with nice natural beaches and restrooms and picnic areas. Also a nice place to ride bike with trails and bike racks.

We camped in a popup at site 39 as part of a large group. Our kids loved riding their bikes. The beach is across the street so a car ride or bike ride. The showers were clean and hot. Look where you set up as a quick rain shower floods the place and the low spots become vert obvious. Also... More

Such a beautiful beach. You can find all sorts of sharks teeth, shells, and sea things. We found a mermaid's purse and two huge atlantic whelks!!! 4×4 is very helpful. Great spot to fish. We come here as often as we can. Love this place.

A long, beautiful beach with plenty of parking and picnic shelters. On a warm, cloudy Friday in late march, I was there entirely alone - miles of empty beach with nothing but waves and shorebirds - pristine and lovely.

This park offers a great walk around through the woods and on the beach. But you need to be mindful of high tide which will squeeze you off the beach up against 20 ft. high sheer face dunes. The beach is strewn, or decorated if you will, with huge driftwood type trees that collapsed onto the beach as the sand... More

Little Talbot is a bit of the "old Florida"; an undeveloped barrier island off the NE coast. Miles of ocean frontage, miles of salt marsh behind it. Nice set of trails; a fishing dock, launch ramp (high tide only), beautifully wooded and relatively private sites. The main drawback for us tent campers is the proximity to the fairly busy road...

Great place to enjoy the outdoors and the sea. Spend the afternoon hiking trails and strolling along the beach.
