This outstanding Florida State Park is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the East, and the St. Mary's River and the Cumberland Sound to the North and West. A haven for wildlife, the park amenities include a 2,500 foot fishing pier, an historical fort, one mile of natural beaches, 3 miles of river shoreline and miles of hiking and awesome off-road biking trails. The Park is located in the adorable village of Fernandina Beach however, there is no need to leave the Park to find fun.

The Park has two separate campground areas. The Beach Area Campground, located within easy walking distance to the fishing pier and beaches, has no shade but has larger campsites with easy access. It can be quite windy here in the winter. The River Area Campground on the western edge of the park is heavily shaded. These campsites vary in size and some can be difficult for larger rigs to back into. Be sure to check the lot size when making reservations. We perfer staying in the River Area Campground.

The Park is located in the northeastern most tip of Florida and offers fantastic views of both sunrise on the ocean and sunset over the St. Mary's River. Across the river from the Park, to the North, is Georgia's famous Cumberland Island. During our visits we've seen deer, raccoons, armadillos, alligators and a wide variety of birds. Sea turtles nest along the beaches.

Nearby attractions include Amelia Island, Big Talbot Island State Park and historic Fernandina Beach.

Our most recent visits to this Park were in October 2005 and May and August 2006, April, early and mid November 2007 and November 2008.
