About
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.

Just a couples day for us.
Sep 2021 • Couples
Clean litter free park. Beautiful beach. Plenty of nature and wildlife. A lot of friendly birds. Turtles. Fun place to walk around and beach-comb for smaller agate, sea beans and such. Handicap friendly. Camping, water toy rentals, small gift shop, snack place (tho it was closed while we were there). Soft sand. Large parking area. Plenty of bathrooms. Showers. Not a lot to see driving as it’s basically from entrance to beach minus the campground so it’s great for those who want to explore on foot, bike, camp etc. a nice place to spend the day. Was $8 for a car of two. Park ranger super nice.

Anastasia State Park

Anastasia State Park is located on the Florida coast, in St Augustine. We camped at the park for one night. We got there after dark. The park is in close proximity to the town of St Augustine. The campground was nice, other than there were a fair amount of mosquitos.

Before we left in the morning, we took a walk on the beach. The beach is accessible from a boardwalk, which takes you over the dunes. The St Augustine lighthouse is visible from the boardwalk. The beach itself was very pretty.

We did not stay here but did drive there to check it out for future trips. Would definitely try this next time we are in the area.

This is an amazing well maintained State Park. It has kayak rentals, excellent beach access, a grille, clean restrooms and everyone we have encountered from the staff has been very friendly and helpful. The walking path out to the beach area has a mat that makes the walk very easy. This is our 2nd trip to this area and we highly recommend visiting this beach area.

Looked like nice camp sites
Aug 2021
We didn't camp there but the sites looked nice and good sized. I liked that the beach had a walkway out to the water which made it handicap accessible but also you didn't have sand all over you feet and legs when you walked out there.

Great Beach
Aug 2021
My wife and I spent the day here one Friday in August. While it was hot, of course, we enjoyed the beach immensely. The beach is wide and was not very crowded, with a constant breeze. The gift shop and grill nearby make it a great place to stay for the day. This has become our go-to beach in St Augustine.

Rude workers to long walk to beach
Jul 2021 • Family
Super long boardwalk from parking to beach. Restrooms are even further. Worker at center was rude to someone who genuinely needed help.

Lots of Parking and Clean Beaches
Jul 2021
We were pleasantly surprised at how clean the beach is! This park is definitely worth the $8 entrance fee. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves. Everyone was distanced apart just enough to you the space you needed to enjoy your visit. The beach was in a high tide warning when we arrived, and you are warned that there is not a lifeguard on duty. There is a bit of a hike from the parking lot to the beach, but easy enough to bring a stroller, wagon, or just carry your beach supplies without much of an issue.

Easy and inexpensive kayak rental
Jul 2021
My daughter and I rented kayaks at the Watersports Rental at Anastasia State Park. It was easy, and very uncrowded. We were able to observe a dolphin for an extended period of time.
