This is a small Florida state park but has an excellent campground that borders a marsh and a quiet unspoiled beach with lots of shells. It is close enough to Jacksonville for access but very natural. There are not any restaurants close by but that adds to the peacefulness of this park. Campsites range from marsh front to wooded.

When I think about beaches, I think of bikinis, cocktails, swimming and parties. But...this beach at Little Talbot is not about that! It is about quietness, tranquility, inner peace...and I love it! In the beginning we didn't expect too much, but after the short trail inside the woods, all of a sudden, this sandy beach appeared! So clean, so original...it... More

This is mine and my husbands favorite beach!!! We walk or ride our bikes all up and down the island, in awe of the wonderful sea life we see!!! Sand dollars, starfish, horseshoe crabs, the washed up trees, even a shark!!! Late summer walks or bike rides are the best!!!! There are bathrooms, vending machines, showers, plenty of parking on...

We regularly head to Little Talbot to sight see or enjoy the beach. It is full of wildlife and scenery. The beaches are very clean and probably the best place near Jacksonville to search for sea shells.

If you want to avoid the crowded beaches that are typical of the Jacksonville and surrounding area beaches, definitely pay a visit to Little Talbot Island State Park. It is a very peaceful area, almost undisturbed, and visitors will be surprised at how huge the beach is. Lots of room to roam around, and my kids loved collecting seashells and... More

My brother and I came to JAX for a business trip. We decided to go tent camping here and to stay in the great outdoors. While this is a pristine nature spot not far from down town JAX, it is not very quiet. The campground here is small and the camp sights are pretty close together. We had a group... More

We stayed 3 nights here. Great camping spot with access to the marsh ( great kayaking here) and across A1A is the beach, a short walk or bicycle. Nice hiking and bike trails, one paved and level. Hope to plan a trip back soon..

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.
