Anastasia State Park has a wonderful beach as well as food, camping and historical areas. Get a Florida State Park Pass and enjoy the park as well as visit all the parks. The pass will pay for itself in a short time.

I ran through the park on the way to the beach. It was early enough that the park was closed to traffic. Very flat but pretty.

It was my granddaughter's first visit to the Atlantic and when she stepped into the water, she stepped into the full moon's reflection! The beach was very clean and was an amazing experience.

Lovely park. People are very friendly and it's close to everything. Sites are nice with some foliage between each for some privacy. Bathrooms are clean. Will be back again.

Only part of one day----will we have time for all this? (12 Replies)
We're going to WDW at the end of May. I just cancelled our last night there to give us the morning/early afternoon (?) to spend in St.Augustine, and then a few hours at the beach (Anastasia State Park). We will not be spending the night in the St.Augustine area, but rather starting the (long!) drive home that evening. It will be me, dh, and our kids ages 8,8,7. And, oh yeah, this will be the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend--so crowded!! Here's what I'd like to accomplish in our day,...More

Do-able if you like to rush around with kids. Traffic will be bad on Memorial Day weekend, so spend 2-1/2 hours at least getting to St. Augustine. Yes, early you won't have a problem finding parking in the parking garage. Pirate museum is practically across the street from the Fort, no problem. Again, will be mobbed with the holiday weekend. Probably will be lunch time then, stop on St. George Street and pick up something quick and then do the Lightner Museum. I am not sure if it is the...More

Kayaking in Anastasia State Park? (1 Replies)
My fiance and I will be in St. Augustine the first week of May for our wedding/honeymoon, and we'd love to go kayaking. Originally we were thinking of going with the ECO Tours and doing their salt marsh trip, but then I realized that you can rent kayaks in the state park. Has anyone ever done this? How much does it cost? What is the water like (calm, marshy, etc.)? I can't find anything helpful online and I'm curious. Thanks!

Anastasia State Park is just south of Saint Augustine, Guana State Park is just north of Saint Augustine. I've done summer sunset/night kayaking under the full moon in Guana State Park. Neat! Conditions are essentially the same in Guana as they are in Anastasia. Take bug spray. You may or may not need it. There are open areas of water as well as marshy areas. Water is totally calm. You'll see birds, possibly an alligator or two. Apparently you can take 2 1/2 hour kayak tours in Anastasia...More

Pets on Beaches in this area (1 Replies)
You can walk your pet ON LEASH on any St. Johns County Beach - that means the entire length of Anastasia Island (St. Augustine Beach to Crescent Beach) excluding Anastasia State Park. There are stations along the way with "poo" bags, but bring your own just in case. Nothing worse than those pet owners who don't clean up after their pet.
