Jacksonville - Little Talbot Island State Park

12157 Heckscher Drive

With more than five miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches, Little Talbot Island is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. Maritime forests, desert-like dunes and undisturbed salt marshes on the western side of the island allow for hours of nature study and relaxation. The diverse habitats in the park host a wealth of wildlife for viewing, including river otters, marsh rabbits, bobcats and a variety of native and migratory birds.

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!

The beach at Little Talbot is a beautiful display of broad white sand beach and stunning blue water and white caps. If you like to walk, this your place. Best time is low tide when the beach is really, really wide. Bring a picnic.
