Avalon State Park

 About Avalon State Park

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

With the heat of the summer behind us, we invite you to join us at Avalon State Park. Spend a day at the park to enjoy the sunshine and the cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean. With over a half-mile of undeveloped beachfront, Avalon State Park offers you a glimpse of amazing coastal wildlife.

Threatened and endangered sea turtles such as the Atlantic green, leatherback and loggerhead, nest on Avalon’s beaches during the spring and summer. Sea turtle nesting season is winding down but the sea turtle eggs will be hatching for several weeks. An early morning stroll along this unspoiled beach might still reveal a late season nest. If you are fortunate enough to find sea turtle hatchlings emerging on the beach, please watch from a distance and allow them to crawl to the water on their own.

Avalon State Park’s pristine beaches provide the opportunity for great surf fishing. Bring your gear and a beach chair for a chance to land a variety of species such as snook, pompano, whiting or bluefish. A recreational saltwater fishing license is required.

This fall, come out and enjoy Avalon State Park, "…the Real Florida."
