About

State Park

Little Talbot Island State Park is located near Jacksonville on one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Florida. The campground is nestled among ancient dunes in a lush maritime hammock of live oaks, American holly and Southern magnolias.

Each of the 36 campsites has 20- and 30-amp electricity, fresh water, fire ring and picnic table. The campground offers a laundry facility and two bathhouses with hot showers. Both restroom facilities are ADA accessible. A dump station is available at the campground exit for RV campers.

Winding tidal creeks border the western edge of the campground where a canoe/kayak launch is available along with a bait cleaning station and short dock into Myrtle Creek. Please note that Myrtle Creek is tidally dependent, and launching may be difficult at low tides when oyster beds are exposed. Bring your own equipment or visit Kayak Amelia, 1/4-mile north of the campground, for daily boat rentals or guided tours. For children, there is a playground, a campfire circle for group use and the ¾-mile Nature Loop trail that offers self-guided Hike and Seek interpretive programs. Junior Ranger activity booklets are available at the ranger station, and kids can earn badges and pins for completing a variety of activities. Kids also can participate in the park trash patrol and help collect a bag of litter in exchange for a prize. Beyond the camping area, visitors find 5 miles of undeveloped coastal beaches, a 4-mile hiking trail, and a paved path perfect for bicycling and in-line skating. Well-behaved, attended and leashed pets are welcome in our campground, on the trails and paved areas. They are not allowed on the boardwalks or beaches. Maximum RV length = 30 feet. Hammocks – day use and camping styles – are allowed in designated sites if they are hung using 1-inch-wide (minimum) tree-hugger straps from trees 6 inches in diameter or larger.

Exploring Little Talbot Island’s undeveloped beach is a unique Florida experience.

Little Talbot Island is one of a handful of undeveloped barrier islands remaining in Northeast Florida. Boasting more than 5 miles of pristine beaches and 3 miles of bike trails, Little Talbot offers untouched natural beauty and diverse ecosystems for visitors to explore.

There is, of course, the white sand and rolling surf typical of many high energy coasts. But there is also the eroding sun-bleached roots and fallen trunks of cedar and palm that create a linear tapestry of natural sculptures.

Enjoy beachcombing, surfing, fishing, hiking, birdwatching, a winding kayak journey along the bluffs of Myrtle Creek and camping in a lush forest hammock. There is something for every outdoor lover on Little Talbot Island.

Amazing view!

Awesome, private beach, with tons of little spots to hang out and swim near. The Beachwood is fun to climb also!

Friendly location

I got there a little late, but the park attendant was very helpful and got me a very cozy little spot. The other campers were friendly, and you have beach access 24/7. As long as you can make the walk of about a half of a mile. Lot’s to do and see. Only 10 miles from the grocery store.

Great little spot by the beach

I spent two nights here tenting it with my dog and had a lovely stay. It’s very buggy in the wooded camping area so bring your big spray, but the sites were spacious and clean. Water and electric at each site a big plus. Beach isn’t dog friendly but if you go 15 minutes north there’s a great dog beach for those traveling with pups! I’d absolutely come back here again.
