Overview

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.

St. Augustine seemed like a bit of a tourist trap to me but coming out here was a nice relief. We did not camp here but would consider it if It wasn't already full.

This is a nice, wide beach that did not have many people on it. We felt like the whole beach was ours. It was a clean beach where you can even find sand dollars!

This is meant mostly for people wanting to enjoy the beach. At the beginning there is a little hike to see where the Coquina was mined, but no real long hikes. Also a sound area where you can fish and kayak. Good for bird viewing.

A nice 20-minute bike ride away from Downtown St Augustine. Beautiful clean sugar sand! Nature uninterrupted - saw a turtle burrowing in the dunes.

This is one of the most beautiful and relaxing state parks we’ve ever been to. We spent several nights camping there, and the sites were quiet, shady and convenient. The restrooms, showers and laundry area were clean and well maintained. The park offers a unique...More

Great beach! Not overly crowded. Can swim, surf, body board, etc. White sand. Easy to get to and lots of parking. Entrance fee of $8 per vehicle goes back to persevering the park. Worth it. Can camp here too!

We have visited St. Augustine several times and missed this gem. The beach was great for finding shells and sea glass. We enjoyed the nature trail so much we paid admission a second day to visit the park again.

Wonderful place to visit if you are looking for solidarity and access to the beach. It is $8 per car which you can't beat if you want to stay all day and go to the beach too. There are plenty of restrooms and trails to...More

Wonderful state park for a beach day! Good luck getting into the campground, I tried for 2 months since being in Florida. Got one Night which wasn't in the time frame I needed. This park is very hard to reserve a space.
