The park was nice if you are interested in hiking or taking nice long walks. Can access the beach, but not much else to look at there.

What a gorgeous beach...be ready to walk to get to it. Big Talbot was beautiful in its own way. Campground is good but we were there for the beach. We also were close emough to drive to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach.

This has walking trails through sand dunes, swamps and wetland and the beach. It is an intersting place but not that special.
