Anastasia State Park includes 1,600 acres of rich ecosystems and abundant wildlife. Explore up to four miles of pristine beach, the estuarine tidal marsh teeming with plant and animal life, or the self-guided nature trail which takes you through the maritime hammock and onto ancient sand dunes. You can also visit the Coquina Quarry, an archaeological site where coquina rock was mined to help construct the nearby Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, earning it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.

At Anastasia, there are many recreational activities to enjoy including hiking, swimming, beachcombing, bird watching, and much more. The campground contains 139 campsites all located within the beautiful maritime hammock and just a short walk or bike ride from the beach.

Anastasia has concessions to provide guests with rental opportunities of bicycles, paddleboards, kayaks, sail boats and canoes. There is also a grill area and a small gift shop for visitors to take home an Anastasia memory. The grill location also provides Wi-Fi for visitors' use.

Beautiful beach

Beautiful beach. Public restrooms available, they were clean. Beach was clean and not at all crowded when we were there. Would definitely go back and spend time.

we went to the beach at the state park expecting a nice beach, now I know we where there a week after the Oct storm but never expected to have to walk such as long was from the parking lot especially when you are carrying heavy items, would not recommend this beach as a family beach

Parking was easy. Beach and dunes are beautiful. We luckily did not bring our pooch, but we were quite surprised that this must be the only St Augustine local that we have visited that prohibited dogs on the beach. Why?

We stayed at Anastasia State park for 4 nights in our travel trailer. The campground campsites offers electrical, water, picnic table and fire ring. There is a 3 lane dump station for emptying your tanks. The campground was clean, very wooded and pleasant. We didn't feel too close to any of our neighbors. The bathhouse was clean but lacked an...

We stayed here in an RV. The campground is very nice, with large sites and good privacy. The beach is gorgeous. The park is so close to the lovely little historic and touristic town of St Augustine. Unlike some Florida State Parks, the campground is not right on the water, but is accessible by a quick bike ride. Nice park!

We camped at the park. The sites were spacious, wooded and private. The park is on the Atlantic Ocean and has a beautiful beach within a short bike ride or 15 min walk from the campground. The beach area has a large parking lot, a nice beach house pavilion and boardwalks to the beach and overlooks. From the park, you... More

I went here with my wife a few days ago. This was byfar the most relaxing part of my vacation. The beach on had mabye 5 people on it. The boardwalk to the beach was very scenic. I took a few pictures of the lighthouse from the boardwalk.

Be aware that it is a Florida State park, so you will have to pay cash at the gate to be able to enter. It's less if you walk or bicycle in than if you drive in by car so take that into account. The beach area is very nice, but if you travel a mile further South you can... More
