 About Avalon State Park

The parking lot of Avalon State Park borders the Atlantic Ocean.

Special Notice: Avalon State Park requires an entry fee of $2.00. The pay station is centrally located in the parking lot. Please display the receipt on your vehicle’s dashboard or rearview mirror. If you are an annual pass holder, please display your pass in your window. Thank you for your cooperation.

Spring has officially arrived and Avalon State Park is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day at the beach. Springtime also marks the beginning of marine turtle nesting season. Park visitors may see tracks left by Leatherback, Loggerhead and Green Sea Turtles. If you are fortunate enough to see one of our turtles nesting, please keep your distance and share the beach. During sea turtle nesting season, we request that visitors do not use stakes to anchor tents or shade structures to the beach. Tents that are weighted, rather than staked, and umbrellas are allowed.

The waters of Avalon State Park were once used to train the first Navy Underwater Demolition Team during World War II. Many underwater obstacles that were deposited offshore for training purposes still remain there today. Please use caution and swim at your own risk, there are no lifeguards on duty. All divers are required to display a 'Diver-Down' flag.
Make a trip to Avalon State Park and enjoy "…the Real Florida."
