This is a taste of the true Florida. I have been visiting here with my family since I was a child. On this occasion, I visited with my mom to take photos of our wetlands for our beach-themed bathroom.

We camped at Little Talbot Island State Park last week in a tent on site 10. At first we were unsure of the site that we chose because it seemed like it was in an intersection. It turned out to be nice and private. Quiet campground overall. There are trails from most sites to the bathroom or you can walk... More

Check the tide tables and walk he trail at low tide. It starts close to the main gate, meanders brought the hammock and out onto the beach where you walk for a couple of more miles past driftwood trees on an isolated area. You end at the last Boardwalk that returns you to the parking lot . Beautiful pristine beach!

I live on the west side of Jacksonville so the beach is a bit of a drive. This park is by far my favorite one in Jacksonville. Not overcrowded, can walk the whole island without tripping over beach chairs, blankets etc. Only con is that there is no lifeguard. Swim at your own risk. It is also quite a hike... More

Little Talbot is absolutely beautiful. From the stray pieces of driftwood, to watching the enormous freights going in and out of the St. Johns, it is full of things to look at and experience. But beware of the vicious bugs that call it home. I went there with a girlfriend and we walked the beach at dusk. Needless to say,... More

Campsites are set beautifully back in the woods (bring bugspray!) Each lot has a very private feel amongst the trees but most are also very close to a bathroom with hot water and clean showers. There are electrical outlets at campsites and also firepits and picnic tables. The walk around the campsite area is beautiful and go across the street... More

Nice beach with miles of unobstructed coastline. Even helped a baby tortoise off the boardwalk to the sand! Cons were rather long walk from parking area to the beach, dilapidated boardwalk with nails and splintered boards, and no shade on walkway or beach. Not for handicapped!
