Little Talbot Island State Park provides over five miles of white sandy beaches, along with an undeveloped area in Northeast Florida. Most of the beaches are developed in the area, but this remains as one of the few undeveloped barrier islands found in the area. Complete with maritime forests, salt marshes and desert-like dunes, this is a great place for all kinds of family fun.

The diverse nature of the park provides plenty of wildlife viewing including:

  • Migratory birds
  • Bobcats
  • River Otters
  • Marsh Rabbits
  • And many others animals!

The surf and tidal streams provide plenty of great fishing with many types of fish throughout including:

  • Striped bass
  • Flounder
  • Mullet
  • Sheepshead
  • Bluefish
  • Redfish

Other park activities include:

  • Kayaking
  • Hiking
  • Picnicking
  • Surfing
  • Beachgoing

Whether you prefer a picnic pavilion or you just want to spend time on the beach, this is a great place to connect with nature. The pavilions can be reserved in advance and you can stay at the campground, if you prefer. Kayak rentals are available, along with paddle tours.

Seven parks in total make up the Talbot Island State Parks, which include:

  • Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park
  • Fort George Island Culture State Park
  • Yellow Bluff Fort Historic State Park
