This is our favorite beach in the Jacksonville area. It cost $5 for the day (access included if you stay at the campsites), it is so worth it too. You would pay more than that to park at the other main beaches. This beach is...More

We are considering staying at site 39 in July- I am curious if anyone has stayed in this one, do they close the gates at dark or can you still get in? We are thinking of going to Cumberland for the day and may arrive back after dark. Also, considering the area, I am assuming the bugs are pretty pesky. How was your experience and did you find any helpful tips?

There is a beach on the park side. Follow the safety instructions on the water conditions signs. Check with the park rangers at the entrance for specific information.
