I visited the beach during an overcast day and consequently there were very few people. Although it was humid, it was perfect. Next time I go back, I plan to bring my bike because the park has a well defined concrete bike bath. No dirt bike paths for me :)

Very nice park rangers and campground was well kept up. We stayed in August and bugs were bad but not as bad as other places. There's a small marsh area and the kids really enjoyed wading and fishing. There's a small but clean and modern park area for them to play with and lots of roads and trails for bike riding. The bathrooms were clean and efficient and there's a laundry facility and basin in the rear for cleaning up and doing dishes. It's a short bike ride across the street to the beach area or you can drive. Really a nice place, we had 4 families and everyone agreed we would like to come back.

If I could improve one thing though, it would be that they have some kind of ice machine on property. You can buy firewood from the ranger station if you forget to bring it, but in the summer months, ice melts fast and the nearest place is 5 miles up the road at a gas station. We had to make several trips over the weekend.

Just returned from 5 nights of camping at Little Talbot and are already making plans to return. We knew we were taking a chance going in the summer, but with the a/c in our camper and bug spray we got along just fine. The beach is wide and uncluttered. The campground is about a 1/2 mile from the beach parking lot so we brought a small wagon to haul our gear from the parking lot to the sand...no problem with a little bit of planning. We also enjoyed the beach at Hugeuenot State Park two days. The campsites had an odd configuration for the water and electrical posts and we had to use extra cords and hoses to make the connections, so bring extras. We biked on the new Amelia Island Bike path one morning, This path is a great addition to the area. The camp ground does not sell ice, so come prepared.

We decided to take off on a last minute camping trip and luckily stumbled upon Little Talbot. Although the campsites are across the road from the beach, we found the short drive over a small price to pay. Campsites were clean and offered both electricity and water. Bring anything you need with you as there are no stores close by. The walk to the beach is over 100+ yards of beautiful sand dunes. The beach was gourgeous, not too crowded and there was consistent surfable waves nearly all day long. We will definitely be back. Oh, be sure to bring deet, mosquito coils, etc. The mosquitos are vicious at the camping area.
