Campground Description

At Anastasia you can enjoy camping, nature trails, beach time, water sports, and an archaeological site where coquina rock was mined to create the nearby fortress, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. Anastasia State Park, located just south of historic St. Augustine on Anastasia Island, has 4 miles of pristine beach, a tidal salt marsh, and maritime and upland hammock.



Camping, beachcombing, swimming, fishing, picnicking, windsurfing, hiking, wildlife-viewing, canoeing and kayaking are popular activities. Nature trails meander through the ancient dunes shaded by hammock forest. The full-facility campground is located in a wooded area within easy bicycling or walking distance of the beach.

Neighboring Park: Fort Mose Historic State Park--Many visitors to Anastasia do not realize that just a short drive north is Fort Mose Historic State Park. (Anastasia administers Fort Mose, pronounced “Mo-say”.) Fort Mose was the first free black community in the United States. Fort Mose represents an amazing story of human endurance and the drive for freedom.

    Just got back from a 3 day camping to Anastasia State Park and it was awesome, best camping trip ever! Weather first day was rainy, so did not do much, day 2 was beautiful, the beach is amazing! I'm sure it looked the same that day as it did the day Ponce de Leon set foot on the shore here. The campsites are spread out well, plenty of restrooms and clean showers. The park is for the most part flat and me and my daughter rode around the whole park on bikes in about 50 minutes and traveled just over 6 miles total. It is within biking range of the historic district of Saint Augustine and the National park, Castillo de San Marcos. 5 minute car drive as well... I look forward to going back soon!

You cannot go wrong with this campground!
