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.
