Camping near the beach at Anastasia State Park

Date: 5/17/2012 – 5/20/12
Location: St. Augustine, Fl
GPS Coordinates: 29.8730651, –81.277546

If you are looking for a campground near a uncrowded beach, then Anastasia State Park could be one to try. Although the campground loops are a lengthy walk from the beach, it’s well worth the effort. There’s also a large parking area near the beach access if you want to take the car. This campground has many loops off a main road. Some of the loops are for tents and very small RV’s only. Other can accommodate larger RVs with no problem.
There a few short hiking trails that make their way through the park and there’s plenty of bike trails to explore. My daughter and I did some fishing in the bay. We caught a few small fish , but nothing worth writing home about!  I’m sure it was the lack of fish and not the questionable ability of the “fisherman”.
