This is one of the BEST state parks we have been to in Florida. As a family of 5 it was an amazing time and the kids want to go back. The fort is informative and the kids had a blast discovering it. The beach is clean and secluded. The River Campground is amazing. If tent camping, I suggest you don’t camp at the tent only sites.
Really nice park. Lots of marsh lands and beautiful old trees. The campsites are a bit dark and they are all dirt.
We stayed at the Atlantic beach campground in the tent section. Our site was super sandy and had no shade. Bring a dining tent for shade! It was quite windy, but you could hear the ocean crashing on the beach at night. You do have to park and walk a little in to your site. You’re nearby your neighbours but a long walk away from the RVs and the washrooms. The restroom was super clean and very new. Each tent site had its own potable water tap. Definitely going to return! Such a unique area and campground!
Awesome campground. Fun times. This place means summer.
We love this campground! Great beach and great town of Fernandina Beach! We were camping on the ocean side this time. Hard to get a site here. They have the fort you can tour also.
we have camped there several times. The first time we were hanging out at the beach and a submarine entered the waterway from the nearby naval base. It was really cool. Restrooms and showers always clean and a nice campground store with the necessities
We literally were steps away from the beach. They also have shaded spots on the opposite side of the park off the intracoastal. We loved camping so close to the beach and you have to book these spots months in advance normally! FYI dogs are not allowed on the beach here. The beachside camping has zero shade and no privacy between sites. It’s only about twenty spots so it’s really fun at night when people are all out and about. Clean bathrooms and showers right in the center of the spots. We walked along the beach to the old fort one morning and just relaxed! Lots of trails too, beautiful drive once inside the park to the campsites too! Really close to downtown Fernandina and lots of good restaurants and put out golf!
Great place! Had a great time !!
This is what Florida is about. Beautiful nature. Beach, river & sky. Beach sites offer no shade. River sites are better in the heat.
Clean restrooms! Three loops- one by the river mostly wooded and best for tents pop ups and smaller rv. The ocean loop is a dune away from the ocean. Open sites best for large rcvd and ocean lovers. A walk in tent only area with no ac. Same price as other sites though. Longer walk to the bathroom. A cool civil war fort on site (admission) overlooking the inlet. Fishing from the beach or inlet.Close to shopping and the cute town of Fernandina Beach.
