My favorite beach in the Jacksonville area. Worth the drive! I usually park at the north beach lot and walk the north end of the beach all the way to the lagoon. Once you get far enough up the beach you can find sand-dollar shells...More

What a gorgeous beach...be ready to walk to get to it. Big Talbot was beautiful in its own way. Campground is good but we were there for the beach. We also were close emough to drive to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach.

This has walking trails through sand dunes, swamps and wetland and the beach. It is an intersting place but not that special.

This beach is perfect for walking - the sand is dense and flat, it's clean and easy to walk on and it goes for miles. On the flip side, it is just sand and water, not much else to pay attention too.

We were in Jacksonville for a concert birthday trip and decided to check out this state park along with Big Talbot and Amelia Island as well and we were not disappointed.

We went camping here in July, beautiful beach. We are not used to having to pay to access beaches, but it's worth it. Highly recommend

I love the beach..shells..birds...the peaceful crash of the ocean. Solitude to walk and think...great place alone or with friends and family.

This is one of our favorite state parks to go to due too it’s not very crowded. There is plenty of beach space for everyone. The walk to the beach is quite long but it’s worth it.

This campground has the feel of old Florida with large live oaks and Spanish moss. The sites are nice, and are on the river side, not the ocean, but there is beach access across the road. We came just after Irma, so it was damp...More

My wife and I visited on a Saturday morning. We went all the way to the last parking area. There were only half a dozen other groups there. We enjoyed the water and shelling. We found a really nice piece of driftwood, but were unaware...More

You won't need to drive if you are traveling light just as long as your a fair walker. But if you are doing coolers, food, etc. I would probably drive over. As far as dogs, I believe they are allowed but need to be leached... More
