Little Talbot Island State Park
Limited Access and Reduced Campground Capacity
Due to ongoing erosion and loss of infrastructure, the south end beach area remains closed indefinitely. The Florida Park Service and its partners are working to determine possible solutions with hopes of reopening this area in the future. At the north beach area, boardwalks No. 1 and No. 3 are open, while No. 2 remains closed. The campground is now open but with reduced capacity due to site maintenance.

Welcome to Little Talbot State Park
Exploring Little Talbot Island’s undeveloped beach is a unique Florida experience.
Little Talbot Island is one of a handful of undeveloped barrier islands remaining in Northeast Florida. Boasting more than 5 miles of pristine beaches and 3 miles of bike trails, Little Talbot offers untouched natural beauty and diverse ecosystems for visitors to explore.
There is, of course, the white sand and rolling surf typical of many high energy coasts. But there is also the eroding sun-bleached roots and fallen trunks of cedar and palm that create a linear tapestry of natural sculptures.
Enjoy beachcombing, surfing, fishing, hiking, birdwatching, a winding kayak journey along the bluffs of Myrtle Creek and camping in a lush forest hammock. There is something for every outdoor lover on Little Talbot Island.
