Anastasia Island State Park is nestled between the mighty Atlantic and quaint historic St. Augustine, Florida. This state park is teeming with wildlife and has a boatload (get it??) of amenities. From kayak rentals to live music, you don’t want to miss this lovely state park. The campground loops and spacious and quiet. There are many that are all within walking distance of the ocean. Try hiking to the Amphitheater or check out the old coquina quarry.
What I loved was the seclusion and privacy of each campsite. What I didnt like was the beach was too far to walk and we didnt have a bicycle
Anastasia state park was a great first time camping experience. When you come in you meet the rangers at the front gate they were very nice and welcoming. . They give you a map and explain where the campsite is , the paper they give you has important phone numbers and the rules of the park. Our campsite is in a loop with a total of six campsites. It was very clean, the campsites have trees surrounding them also a canopy of trees blocking out the sun so it’s not too hot during the summer. We camped in August so it was hot but not unbearable. We had 3 neighbors who were quiet and respectful of noise after 11. The bathrooms are very close to each campground, they are very clean. The janitorial services are there early morning and at night , they do an amazing job. We went kayaking and saw dolphins, sea turtles , ospreys and all kinds of fish. The view from the water sports bay was beautiful. There are also other water sport options if you don’t care to kayak. There are nature trails and the ranger has educational talks at specific times in the day. The beach was beautiful we went to see the sunrise and during the day and at night to look at the moon. There is a restaurant in the park near the beach if you don’t want to grill. The restaurant is also a small shop if you need something. There are also food trucks right at the entrance of the park. We went to dinner our last night in the beautiful little town of St. Augustine. Overall we had a great time the only thing I would change is camping instead during the fall and winter weather, less mosquitoes and cooler temperatures.
Anastasia State park is a wonderfully relaxing state park. The beach is very clean and scenic. But beware because we did encounter a Portuguese Man O' War, but the park ranger was able to safely remove it. I enjoyed riding bikes around the different campgrounds. The bath houses were clean and had a good amount of room. I would have liked the camp site to have a little more privacy, but overall a good stay.
Anastasia park is one of the cleanest parks. Friendly rangers . Camp sides nice in woods. Beach so close that u can hear splash waves. Bathrooms clean. Mix tent sites and RV. Close to St. Augustine but if u are inside park u dont even think u r that close
Clean bathrooms. No concrete pads. Short bike ride to the beach, not directly on water. Sites are tight but private, lots of trees! A beautiful, well maintained park.
The campground here is awesome! An additional perk is if you camp when a concert is going on you can walk to the concert or just listen to it for free from your camp site. During all months of the year, the Farmers Market is held at the same amphitheatre connected to the park. The campground is also a short walk to the beach. This is hands down one of the leads expensive and fun ways to see historic St. Augustine.
This this is a great place to camp. Always clean and has beach access. It is also close to downtown Saint Augustine. Shopping is very easy and accessible.
We love Anastasia! This campground has a few small hiking trails, parking near the beach, a playground, and a small store with a grill/restaurant attached. The beach is pristine and has easy access. You can walk down around the Cape for some good exercise.
The campsites are not right on the beach. We brought bicycles with us and had a great time biking on the beach. St. Augustine also has a wealth of things to do
