    This is our favorite local park in the Jacksonville area. It is very convenient for people that like to bridge fish, play in the nearby sand dunes or walk the beaches. The campground ground is on the opposite side of the road from the ocean entrance so you are away from the hustle and bustle of the beaches. The typical high swaying oak type trees with the slim trunks. Sandy back in sites with a lot of shade. Some of the sites are close together. Water and electric at a reasonable price. Close enough for a day trip up to Fernadina or other north Florida places. Playground, small dock and launching area for canoes/kayaks in a creek. We have stayed there over Thanksgiving Holiday and also Georgia/Florida weekend and both times the park was full. Check this park out.

    We loved Little Talbot! We stayed there and cruised the marshes in the canoe, walked to the beach and just enjoyed the beautiful area.
    And we took the ferry over the St. Johns River with the Pop-up.
    There was a great seafood restaurant across the river, just to the right of the Ferry exit.

    Just spent the last weekend at Little Talbot Island. I am from Jacksonville, so it was so easy to jump on the the St Johns River Ferry (which by the way has raised there rates to $5 a car) and drive right up. I had site 36 right next to the boat ramp. Took a bike ride on the paved multipurpose path. Had a great time. I would reccommend this State park to anyone.
