Nestled within the historic town of St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, lies Anastasia State Park, a 1,600-acre natural paradise. The park boasts 4 miles of unspoiled shoreline with protected wildlife, natural landscapes and beautiful scenery to make everlasting memories with your family and friends.

Untouched dunes provide a natural oasis as well as an amazing backdrop for the perfect photo opportunity. In addition to this, it is not uncommon to see dolphins and shorebirds enjoying the rich coast here as well.

With a beautiful and shaded campground within the park’s maritime hammock, camping here is a must. Explore the Ancient Dunes Trail within the hammock to discover a variety of plants and wildlife that make Anastasia State Park their home.

Before you visit, be sure to check our events page for upcoming park programs to learn about the park’s wonderful natural and cultural resources during your stay. We hope to see you at the park!
