Little Talbot is just over a small bridge to Amelia Island via A1A. Inside an ecological reserve with kayakable waterways stretching for miles.
My visit was at the end of February, beautiful breezy nights with no bugs. Super relaxing, nice to camp under Spanish Moss for a natural Florida feel. Because you’re on the Atlantic coast in FL, flash showers happen - so just have the rain fly handy and it’ll pass typically pretty quickly. Fun to pull up the weather map and watch the showers roll in - had wifi from the site but don’t know if that’s always the case, seems unlikely.
Had campsite 6 with one neighbor in 5, both are a quick walk to shower house but I think I’d prefer/recommend sites 7-10 to be more away from the bathrooms. Btw, showers and bathrooms very clean and (bonus!) screened in, plus there’s a big fan in case it gets buggy out.
I agree with one of the past reviews re: some road noise, but nothing that kept me awake at all.
Take the walk across the street to the trails and beach, about a 4-5 mile loop. Or just up the road on bike you’ll be on bike trails throughout Amelia Island - stop in at the Omni Hotel property for a bite. Also close by, don’t miss Fernandina Beach (a leisurely drive of about 25 min.) where you can check out the fort and historic downtown - super cool with some good food and beer options. Photogenic town right on the Georgia line but no bridge so it’s boat only to get across.
Last, just a little plug for the FL State Parks annual pass. Supports a good cause and will motivate you to check out some really cool areas of the state. Camp more too.
This is a lovely state park with lots to do, wish we could have stayed long to enjoy everything - hiking, boating fishing, etc. Our RV spot #58 (full hook up) was very spacious with plenty of room and foliage between sites so didn’t feel crammed in. We were here in February so didn’t experience any bugs and it was very quiet and just RV people for the most part. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The bath house near us was clean and modern and had four separate accessible private bathrooms with toilet, sink, and shower so it would be easy for families to take all the kids in at once. There was also a nice laundry area in this building. We would definitely go back if in the area again.
We stayed here this weekend and had a blast. The campsites are located walking distance to the water. It wasn’t at all crowded and the campsite had a decent amount of privacy. Dogs are allowed at the campsite but not on the beaches or coastlines. Fernandina Beach is a cool town with tons to do! We stayed at an RV site with power and water. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. We are already planning our next trip here (without our dogs).
After going camping with the Boy Scouts we decided that we liked camping so we bought a 10-person tent and the first place we went was Little Talbot Island which is close to home. The campsites are small but they are in between the tree so you can't see your neighbors. The bathrooms were close by and clean, the only drawback was that the beach was across the street and quiet a walk. Once you make the hike to the beach it's absolute Heaven. There are not very many people, the beach is beautiful whitish sand. water is clear, it was very enjoyable to spend the day at the beach. Of course at the end of the day it rained.
We stayed in the tent only area and it was nice. I don't remember a lot of road noise but then we traveled 2 weeks around Florida and heard road noise in every park so maybe I was Immune to it. The bath house in at the swimming beach and it is a little walk, so if you have little ones that might be a pain. Also in the summer I can imagine it would be packed with day use visitors. We checked in late so no interactions with any Park staff but the lady that booked the site on the phone was nice. Park is close to Jekyll Island where there are killer bike paths all around the island and that is what we were there for. The camp ground on Jekyll did not look good. I would return and stay here.
We had such a great experience! This campground is tucked away at the end of the island. We took a beautiful walk to the fishing pier and then out to the driftwood beach which was just incredible. A golf cart or bikes are a must if you want to visit the areas many restaurants, parks, natural, and historical sites. They do have adult bikes for rent and a great little store for those easily forgotten items. The site was well maintained when we arrived, everyone (and their pups) were friendly, and the bathrooms were warm and clean.
