Little Talbot Island State Park, Jacksonville Reviews

  • This is an amazing place to come and stay. Great staff, very friendly. Camping was very secluded and it's a gated entry. It's on the island across from the state park. They have pavilions and boardwalks on the state park and bath houses in the camping area. Very Clean, you'll love it.

  • Little Talbot Island State Park has only 40 campsites, making it fairly cozy. It has a short (½ mile) nature walk as well as a longer 4 mile hike, first going through the woods and then along a mostly deserted, and beautiful beach. There's lots of dead wood on the beach, presumably trees that were once growing, but have succumbed to the beach erosion. There are also great bike trails stretching ~ 3 miles south and 5 miles north of this state park, and you can drive ~ 10 miles north to Fernandina Beach, which has some great restaurants.

  • The park has a circular trail that stretches about 5 ish miles. There are a ton of birders so I assume there is something to be seen. The trails are well maintained and sandy. You have to pay $5 to park and that parking pass does. Not apply to the adjacent parks either so choose wisely or you could be paying +15 to go to each section near by.

  • Camped right next to the ocean! Kissy a dune between you. Washer, dryer, showers, bathrooms! Water on each site! There isn't a lot of privacy though. You will see the other campers clearly. And it's breezy. Find really cool shells! Everywhere!

  • Great small park with beach access. I come here with family often and have since I was very young. Great beach lots of seashells and nice sand.
