Anastasia State Park includes 1,600 acres of rich ecosystems and abundant wildlife. Explore up to four miles of pristine beach, the estuarine tidal marsh teeming with plant and animal life, or the self-guided nature trail which takes you through the maritime hammock and onto ancient sand dunes. You can also visit the Coquina Quarry, an archaeological site where coquina rock was mined to help construct the nearby Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, earning it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.

At Anastasia, there are many recreational activities to enjoy including hiking, swimming, beachcombing, bird watching, and much more. The campground contains 139 campsites all located within the beautiful maritime hammock and just a short walk or bike ride from the beach.

Anastasia has concessions to provide guests with rental opportunities of bicycles, paddleboards, kayaks, sail boats and canoes. There is also a grill area and a small gift shop for visitors to take home an Anastasia memory. The grill location also provides Wi-Fi for visitors' use.

We wanted to take a long walk on a sandy beach but it is sometimes difficult finding a parking spot at the public access beaches. For $8/car we were able to enter this state park with plenty of parking and great beach access. They even rent chairs, umbrellas and kayaks. After our beach walk we explored a nature trail in...

So many folks have told us about this park, and especially the campground, just had to see for ourselves. Camped there for 3 nights and really liked the open, woodsy feel, and yet we were minutes to the city. The beaches are a short distance away from the camping area, and the access road to the must-see sites in St,... More

Amazingly, only 5 minutes from Old Town. It's all about the beach and it's spectacular with wide open sands that appear to sweep endlessly in either direction. This park offers inlets for fishing and kayaking, picnic areas, camping and a nicely equipped playground. The covered pavilion beach store/fast food restaurant and bar is situated steps from the main beach and... More

This park is gorgeous. I took my granddaughters here for a couple days and we loved it. The beach is beautiful and a perfect place to spend the day.

This park is just south of the old city and offers a great variety of options. Paddle board and kayak rentals are available to enjoy the "salt run" down to the lighthouse or St A inlet if your arms allow. The salt run is shallow and your paddle tide dendent. The beach is fantastic and lightly populated. If your legs... More

The state park has a beautiful beach with dunes that is a welcome change from the developed shorelines across much of Florida. The old Spanish coquina quarries are also interesting to visit. This only downside is the $8 entry fee seems excessive.

We had a blast here, the park is excellent. The location is great for visiting St. Augustine, very close proximity. The beach at the park is very nice.

This is an amazing state park and clearly a favorite. The location is perfect, just a small car or bike ride to downtown. The campsite has everything: camping, swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and just relaxing. There something for everyone. Every part of the park is beautiful. Restrooms are clean and maintained. Staff was friendly and welcoming. There's really no bad... More
