Unbelievably beautiful foliage in this park, but that beauty comes with narrow passage on the bumpy roads in the campground. Big rigs need not apply. Our 26' fifth wheel made it, but larger (especially taller) rigs would have difficulty. We stayed one night on the way south, and liked the park so much, we booked two nights during our return trip. We enjoyed that stay so much, we then booked a two week stay next spring. I think that says it all. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We spent our day at the beach, which was uncrowded and very wide. Had a nice dinner at the Sandollar, which is on the river and only a five minute drive south from the park entrance.

I really wish I could rate this higher and maybe if we had came at another time it would've been different. This was around the time of a passing hurricane so the camp area was mushy wet from the abnormally high tides just going out, the picnic table had so much algae on it that it wasn't useable at all. Other camp sites had standing water around the tents, thank goodness we had a travel trailer! You couldn't use enough bug spray, the mosquitos had rib cages..but we made the best of it for the time we were there. There was a nearby boat ramp to the marsh area and the beach area wasn't that far of a drive. You could also rent kayaks up the road. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice small park. Well kept. CG entrance and loop road a little rough. Campsites vary in privacy from sparse to very good. All shaded, level. Has small hiking trail, marina and pier at campground and larger hiking trail at the beach area. 2 mile bike trail. Good beach, picnic facilities and playground. Convenient cg to other associated parks and sites in area, J'Ville, Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Really enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Enjoy the beach if you are so inclined. Good easy hiking and biking, fishing. There are 7 parks/preserves in Talbot Island State Park. Little Talbot Island is the only one with campground, but definitely take day trips to the other six from there. Very interesting area. Close-by is Jacksonville, Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. The latter two very interesting small towns.

The campsites and roads in this interesting state park are small. Our 29 foot motor home was just about the largest vehicle you could get in there. The park covers the entire island, with a road running through the middle. The beach is on one side of the road, and the campground is on the other. There is plenty of parking at the beach. The campground is loaded with vegetation, huge live oak trees, Spanish moss, and vines. It looks like a set from Jurassic Park. The campground also borders a wetland area with kayaking and fishing. The campground is in a depression and cell coverage is non-existent. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

When we stayed here there were not a lot of campers here. The sites are fairly isolated as you have a lot of vegetation and trees between sites. You have to check in at the main park entrance then get a code to punch in the gate to get into the campground. This is a good idea since the campground is just off of a heavily traveled highway. The campground is on the south side of the island with very pretty views. It is an easy walk across the highway to get to the beaches. There is an access point at the campground where you could put in a kayak/canoe to paddle through the marshes. There is a short trail next to the campground and a longer one (4 miles) across the street. Lots of signs posted for no pets on the beaches. The restrooms and showers were cleaned daily and there was lots of hot water. We received 15 channels on the TV and Verizon cell service had 3 bars. Park rangers and camp hosts drove through fairly regularly. We would definitely like to return here. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

The road into the sites needs to be filled or plowed due to the deep potholes. There are many low hanging trees to watch out for. The staff is knowledgeable but was not particularly helpful. The beach access is across the street and it was very nice with boardwalks, trails, bicycle paths and restrooms. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Truck Camper.

We stayed here two nights. They have a small boat launch for the canoe and the park has some sites you can be on the water. The roads do have the live oaks that drape over the roads. We have some problems with making the some turns without scraping the side of the RV. Had to hold the branches while the turn was made and had to trim some branches to keep the rubber roof from getting gouged. We let the staff know what we had to do. The campground was quiet. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a very nice clean campground. The ranger station sells firewood for a very reasonable $6 per bundle (cash only). The location makes it a great place to see the sights such as the historical Kinglsey Plantation and Ribault Club. The ferry to Mayport is also fun. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a nice, family friendly campground. Across the highway from the campground is the main part of the park right on the ocean, about 5 miles of private beach reserved just for park goers and campers. On the campground side of the road/park are salt marshes and a fishing dock. Less than 5 miles south of the park is the Mayport Ferry landing that takes you across the St.Johns River to enjoy numerous great restaurants! We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed in this park one night while transiting north. It was a very pleasant stopover, although not very convenient to I-95/9A corridor. Sites are very wooded and generally large/private. Our site was quite out of level and we needed to work hard to get close enough to be comfortable. This appeared to be about average for the sites we observed. The scenery and amenities in the campground area were not particularly good, but the beach (a short bike ride away), was quite lovely and made the visit very memorable. Although the campground was full on the night we stayed, it was very quiet and peaceful and the overall park (cg & beach) felt very spacious. We likely would stay again: for at least 2 nights, in order to better enjoy the beach. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

This park advertises itself as a, "Two-time gold medal award winning park." It probably is, but it is really for the Kayak / tent / serious fishing types. We are more beach bums. The beach is a drive from the park. Our campsite was very shaded and wooded on three sides. The shade kept grass from growing much and dirt in the camper was an issue. Bugs were also an issue. We will not return next year. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Truck Camper.

This was our 3rd stop on our Florida trip. We definitely do not recommend this for anyone with a Class A motor home! Even though we had a 30 footer, the height is the issue. Very narrow winding roads and low hanging branches were a problem. Not full service but had a dump station. Two reasons I ranked this an "8" and not a "3" is the restrooms and showers were immaculate, and the bike paths down to the beach were a definite "10". The no see-ums were brutal and left you looking like you had the measles: no lie. But as I said, the biking and beaches were a slice of heaven. I will not visit with my RV again though because of the access. This would be nice for tenting and popups only in my opinion. Not a bad place for the right purpose. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

Another wonderful Florida State Park. I'll just review the camping here but the park has wonderful nature on both the beach side and the marsh side. Do NOT bring your big RV's to camp here due to very narrow roads with low hanging branches. We have a 22' Roadtrek with no problems, but anything bigger would not be able to turn corners. We were in site #40, as usual finding a level spot took several tries but it was fine at the end. Note about site #40, it's only 20 amp. Whoops, guess I didn't read ReserveAmerica carefully enough. Luckily we were able to use the microwave without problem but heavy electric users beware. I should have suspected something because it was the only site available for Thanksgiving Saturday night when I reserved the day before. Glad I did anyway or we would have missed a great park. The RV sites next to the river look really nice, guess you need to be very early to get those. We saw a small RV about our size parked NEXT to their site, guess it was more level on the large area next to the site than IN the site. The bath-house is adequate, not new but not too grungy. We declined using the shower because it was cold that night and we were headed home the next day. Site 40 is the farthest site away from the showers/toilet, but not horribly far. The campground has good security in that every time you enter you have to enter a gate with keypad. It's located on the west side of A1A and the main park is on the east side with Ranger entry station. Take the time to explore Little and Big Talbot Islands parks. Lots to see. Great wildlife and many people fishing and crabbing (and catching blue crabs). We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

We were in site #19. Site was shady and wide as not many of them are. Site had picnic table, fire ring/grill, water and 20 amp service. Road in is very narrow with lots of overhanging trees which is why we tent camped and did not bring our RV. We did see at least 5 larger RV's (over 30 ft) but ReserveAmerica says 30 ft limit. I would not go above a popup sized RV here though. Some sites flood with the rising tide during storms so check with rangers before camping. Campground had a playground in it and a group fire circle. There is a hiking trail in campground we did not walk that one. Campground is on one side of road and park is on the other. We hiked the 3.4 mile nature trail on the beachside. Start from ranger station as it is hard to spot on the beach side. Rangers were friendly and they sell firewood at station for $6 bundle. Nice beach but too cold to use when we were here. Most sites had a lot of foliage between campers. Bathhouses were very clean though not heated or air conditioner in them. Just screens above walls for ventilation. Lots to do in the area: we visited two national parks and several state parks nearby. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Tent.
