Nice size campsites with fire pit and table. The bathrooms / showers and very nice and big. The park is very big but has very little campsites to stay at. The fort is right on the beach but if you want to go inside it does cost money. Dogs are welcome at the campsites but not on the beach.
Lovely beach to walk on,lots of wildlife, Bathrooms are spotless, great for the kids also
Awesome state park. Georgia visible just on the other side. Beautiful Spanish moss roads into the park. Enjoyed biking the roads in the park between the campgrounds and to the fort. Stayed in the campground by the river. Beautiful views of sunset and nice walks in the morning. Nice hikes as well. Visited the lighthouse also. Can’t wait to return!!
Love the Amelia river section. We stayed in site 23. The other loop is very windy, no shade or privacy between sites. The river section sites are huge, lots of trees and foliage and nicely spaced. All appeared pretty level. Most were dirt, a couple are concrete pads. Paid $26 per night. Super quiet in February, no kids. We had electric and water no FHU, fire pit, table, clothes line. Great bathhouse, clean, updated. Washer and dryer $2 per load. Great areas to bike and hike. Amazing sunsets viewed at the end of our loop. The fort is awesome! Cost $2.50 pp, well worth price. The fort is decorated with period furnishings. Self guided tour. A man dressed as a soldier answered all our questions. The campground is in a nice location, is gated. It's close to Fernandina beach and Amelia island. Amelia island, lots of nice shops and restaurants.
Stayed at the beach campground. Level site, newer hookups. Clean and up to date bath facilities. Easy walk to water and great beach for seashells and birdwatching. Old historic fort in park. Paved areas for biking. Nice old mossy trees. Good access to nearby restaurants too. I'd return!
Nice spot to relax and unwind. I stayed at the campground by the beach. Very clean restroom and shower facilities. Level sites. Easy access to hiking or biking. Lots of birds and mossy hammock areas. Would definitely return! Great place to explore an old historic fort too!
Paddle to Cumberland Island, catch some flounder, explore some Florida history, mountain bike, hike some trails, hit the ocean and of course…camp!
This Florida park next to Fernandina Beach Florida and Amelia island is a gem. 6 miles of paved canopied roads in the park, in addition to 6 miles of single track mountain biking and hiking trails with elevation! The shady river campground is the one we prefer and has easy access to launch our kayaks. There is no swimming at this campground due to the river currents. (Be sure to look at the site you book- some are 30amp and others are 50AMP) The ocean side campground is very open and less private because of lack of trees but you are close to the beach. This is also where the tent ⛺️ sites are. It is easy biking distance to historic Fernandina, close to Amelia Island biking trails and lots of parks. Our video has a lot more info on this park and campground.
A few too many rules for me but overall a good experience. It isn’t terribly pet friendly but we were able to quickly tour the fort within the allotted 30 minutes we could leave our dog alone. Stayed in the river loop and the drive in was beautiful with overhanging trees and Spanish moss. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Site size was good enough for us and hammocks are permitted. Cannot speak to the Atlantic loop as dogs are not allowed. The beach along the river was a nice walk and accessible from our campsite. People often find shark teeth but we weren’t as lucky.
Must reserve online, rangers are only able to book same day reservations.
We came here when it was chilly and we scored a great spot w a view. I definitely want to come back when it’s warmer.
This is one of the most beautiful and interesting state parks I have ever been to.
