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.

We stopped here on the way home to Tennessee. The best park experience yet. It was a bit chilly but walking along the beach was amazing. We drove further in so the beach front was less busy. Hardly anyone was there. Loved collecting shells and starfish that had washed up. I would love to go back.

The beach is great, there are no concessions and it so easy to get around. It really is what Florida must have looked like many years ago in my mind.

My son and I camped here in February. The campground is across the street, from the park, but is clean, and spacious. The rangers who checked us in were very knowledgeable and helpful, they made sure to recommend Big Talbot, different hiking trails, and the Kingsley Plantation area. The beach is beautiful, and not at all crowded. (keep in mind,... More

Make sure to visit this place when you are in town, because it has a nice long walk beaches. It has a long built in walk way too, from the parking lot, plus a pavilion where you could eat your carry on lunch before heading to the beach.

Being a landlocked Okie, we love opportunities to explore different places, especially near the water. Little Talbot is great for hiking, shelling, walking on the beach, and looking at the driftwood. Worth the stop. There is a slight fee to access the park. I believe $4/car. But, its worth it.

Miles and miles of beaches are there for the soaking up. Will cost a small nominal fee but well worth it. It's the Atlantic at its best. Bring the kids and whole family!
