This is a fairly tupical area for this region along the coast with swamps, wetlands, sand dunes, a beach and tropical forst. There are walking trails which are interesting. Parking costs $3.00 if you pull in off 1/A/1.

It is a small beach by Florida standards and it is covered by interesting trees. Also, there is a trail in a nice forest along the beach. The beach feel remote and private, very clean, great for walking.

We were in Jacksonville for a concert and decided to check out the state park before we headed home. Amelia Island & Little Talbot State parks also. They were all wonderful

I like this park, it is easy to get to and parking your car is not too distant from the water. However I prefer Little Talbot park better.

This is my most favorite spot on Amelia Island. I have lived here all my life and every chance I get, I go there just for serenity.

This was a wonderful place to walk on the beach and observe all of the Driftwood trees. I've been meaning to go here for about a year and I'm so glad I did. A great place to take pictures.

there is considerable beach erosion in progress here and dozens of trees complete with their root systems are lying on the beach exposed to the tides, sun, wind, etc. The result is a fantastic gallery of wood works carved by Mother Nature herself. One can...More

There are multiple ways to get here. The shortest is big talbot state park parking area. The bike trails/ped walks take a lot longer and are not good if you wear flip flops(like we did). I am a regular hiker btw. ONLY go at low...More
