Little Talbot Island State Park

Not close to anything but definitely worth the drive. Friendly employees. Not usually crowded unless it's a holiday weekend. Room for family cookouts. Nice bath house.

This is a great place to visit as long as you can do a great deal of walking and like history. It is a beautiful site, a lot of nature to see. Maybe not a place for small children as there is not enough to hold their attention for long periods of time.

This is one of the most peaceful and beautiful State Parks between Jacksonville and Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach, FL I've ever been to. The beauty of the undeveloped beaches & shoreline is breathtaking. When you want to "unwind" go spend some time strolling the beaches or go for a few days and enjoy the peaceful campsites on the marsh side.

I have been to this state park several times and enjoy it immensely each time. There is a short nature walk that is doable for all levels as well much coast line to sit and enjoy the ocean. Good picnic area and washrooms.

Great camping spot. Close to a creek with a nice ramp and fishing pier. Close to the ocean and wonderful hiking trails. We took a sightseeing boat trip out of Amelia Island to Cumberland Island that was great and very informative.

This, and the other local parks have a wide range of things to do. We are birders, so that's what we concentrate on. Plenty of different ecosystems to explore. We were passing through the area so we just stopped to see what we could see, but if this is a destination, make sure what you are hoping to see is... More

Little Talbot Island State Park near Jacksonville, Florida is a very beautiful place to visit. The beach areas are clean, beautiful and heavenly. The park has alot to offer and is well worth the trip. We spent most of our time basking in the sun near the beach, which is a bit of a walk down the boardwalk through the... More

I loved that beach/park. I loved every corner and inch of it. The main problem was that there was no animals whatsoever since it was going to start raining a lot. Nonetheless, I know for sure that I would rather paying money for this paradise off the beaten track than being for free in the typical long beach where everybody... More

Little Talbot Island State Park in Florida is a beautiful location for a camping trip. You can enjoy nature in a variety of settings (woods, beach, marshlands). It is an excellent location for kayaking. Watch the tide tables though as low tide may make for an arduous trip back to the campground launch site. There is excellent Speckled Sea Trout... More
