Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Very nice campsites. We tent camped. The showers etc. we're clean and well maintained. The layout for each campsite felt very private because of all the natural vegetation.

“Endless Beach”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We would have given this park a 5 star rating, except the store is lacking in just about everything, and the Internet is only available near the store and is only good for checking e-mails -- it's just too slow. BUT the beach is amazing, and the sites are very well maintained and private with lots of foliage in-between the sites. Remember that if Reserve America says no vacancies, the park usually has a few hold overs for drive ins. And don't miss St. Augustine -- just a few miles over the bay. We will definately plan a return trip!

“Best Park in the World”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

This place is gorgeous. Don't go here. I want to keep it all for myself. If you do go here, please leave nothing and take nothing. :)
