This place is great and worth the entrance fee. It worth the drive to get there. You go over nice bridges and there are Food venders on the side of the road. Make sure you take some bug spray.

Beautiful State Park. We camped here and the sites are very private and are gravel/dirt, but many are quite small. Take care to not exceed the size limit on your site, or you may not make it it. It's a quiet campground. The bathhouses/restrooms are older and during our stay, were not the cleanest as we've come to expect at... More

We went to Little Talbot Island on a Sunday. Ranger told us no swimming at the south end, not even your toes. That area is below the main parking, which is bookended by two bath houses. The bath houses have changing areas, and toilets. There are beach showers, too. In front of the parking lot are pavilions, where we saw... More

I live at the beach so the landscape was not very different except for the absence of condos lining a pristine beach. I arrived around 8 am. Entrance fee was $4US. There were only two cars in the first beach parking lot and both belonged to the park staff. I had the beach to myself. It is a short stroll... More

It's $5 to park your car, and it is not a drive-on beach. The beach is gorgeous because you can't see any buildings or commercialization. Those beaches can still be enjoyable, but there is nothing more beautiful that going to a place that takes you completely away from everything. The sand is perfect, and the ocean washes up plenty of... More

Even though my wife and I have lived in the area for a couple years now, this was our first trip out here and my wife's first ever camping trip. Needless to say, I needed a good experience to get her on the camping bandwagon, and this place did not disappoint. Great campsites (need to reserve in advance!) with water,... More

Little Talbot Island is one of our favorite places to spend the day. The beach is truly beautiful and great since it is a state park there are no hotels and houses around.

We drove to the beach on a whim and I am so glad we did. The drive was beautiful and the beach was even more so. Picture perfect.

Loved this place. Spent several hours walking the beautiful beach and checking it the birds. Wadded into the ocean and collected some great shells. This place is great for photographers. It is sort of secluded and not overrun.
