Avalon State Park

 About Avalon State Park

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

The cooler weather provides a great time to get back to nature and enjoy the outdoor activities that Avalon State Park has to offer.

Beachcombers will enjoy walking along our one-mile of undisturbed shoreline. Take a leisurely stroll along the beautiful Atlantic Ocean while collecting a variety of seashells and sea beans that wash up on our beaches in the winter months.

If you like to fish, the shores of Avalon State Park provide some of the best surf fishing along the Atlantic coast. You can catch several species including Bluefish, Snook, Permit and Pompano. A Florida Fishing license is required.

Swimming and snorkeling are permitted in the Atlantic, please use caution when entering the ocean in the vicinity of the park. The waters of Avalon State Park were once used to train the first U.S. Navy Underwater Demolition Teams during World War II. Many underwater obstacles that were deposited offshore for training purposes still remain there today. Please swim at your own risk, there are no lifeguards on duty. All divers are required to display a 'Diver-Down' flag.

Avalon State Park will sponsor a ranger-led history hike on Saturday, February 28th at 1:00 p.m. Walk along the beach with a park ranger and learn about the fate of the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet returning from the New World to Spain.

Make a trip to Avalon State Park today and enjoy "...the Real Florida."
