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 rented kayaks & paddleboards and cruised the inlet. Staff was super helpful and friendly. The location is beautiful. Then we went to the beach via well maintained boardwalks. The beach was clean and not at all crowded.

This is a great inlet for kayaking. A 2 hour rental will cost you $30 plus tax. We generally see dolphins, but today we didn't see any. We always see lots of bird wild life. Paddle down to the Lighthouse for a great photo shot.

It's a 30 minutes walk and it's beautiful. Full contact with the nature, Birds everywhere, trees and no annoying people. Bring your camera, water and some snacks if you want! Just take time to enjoy it and forget about your problems!

Great place to avoid the crowds and experience some nature. Very relaxing. There are many places for critters to hide, so be careful. Lots of poisonous snakes in Florida. That said, the beach access is beautiful. The park is preserved well. The beaches and walks...More

We paid our $8 to enter the park, but except for driving through the campground, there wasn't much to see. You can save your money and go to St. Augustine Beach for free.

The camping spaces looked to be close together but there was ample foliage and trees to allow privacy at each site. The paths through the woods to the bathrooms made everything convenient. We enjoyed walking on the beach but were disappointed that the kayak and...More

This is a nice campground. The beach is very nice and it has a handicap boardwalk out to the beach which was also useful for trekking our beach cart out. We like that there is a place to grab food right at the beach, along...More

If you want a place where you can sort of separate from the crowd, this is it. May not be the best beach, but worth the visit.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I will be camping at Anastasia in about a month and am a bit concerned about the heat I see that the campsites are quite shady. Does the shade keep the tents reasonably cool? Any advice on how to fight the heat while in your tent?

We camp in an RV, but the sites are shady with lots of low palemettos as well for lots of privacy. As for keeping cool in your tent, I believe the tent sites also have electric hook-ups so bring a fan or two. I've even seen... More

We are traveling with teenage boy and girl who each want their own tent. that would mean 3 in all. Can we have 3 tents when 2 are super small?

Response from GeekGirl4ever | Reviewed this property |
Check their website. The campground may have restrictions on the number of tents. The camping spaces are large enough to, but there may be other considerations.

Are you allowed to fish at Park?

Response from J T | Reviewed this property |
Yes. Fishing in the salt run area of the park is probably your best bet. Somewhat less crowded. Usually.
