Driving Directions
 

From I-95 take exit 94 (soon to be exit 311). Go east on State Road 207 to State Road 312. turn right onto State Road 312 to A1A. Left onto A1A, 1.5 miles north to park entrance.

From US1 turn east onto State Road 312. Left onto A1A, 1.5 miles north to park entrance.

Anastasia State Park was first opened to the public in 1949 and since that time has become one of Florida's busiest state parks. Located off A1A, and just 1 1/2 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, Anastasia has everything for the active park visitor. The park boasts a broad beach flanked by sand dunes and a lagoon bordered by rich tidal marshes. A hardwood forest of ancient wind swept oaks was in its youth when Juan Ponce de Leon landed near the area, giving Florida its name. Since Florida state parks are managed to appear (as closely as possible) as they did when the first Europeans arrived, you can easily imagine the bustle of the early native's daily life.

Park Activities
Beaches, Full Camping, Canoeing, Concessions, Fishing, Nature Trails, Picnicking, and Swimming

Full Facility Camping
Anastasia State Park has a 139 site campground that is equipped for both tent campers and RVers. Each site has a picnic table, an in-ground grill, fire ring and water. All sites are equipped with electricity, if needed. None of the sites have sewer hookups, but there is a dump station located in the campground, as well as dumpsters for your household trash. For your convenience, there are two public telephones in the park; one is located in the camping area and one at the picnic area. Each of the sites is located in a shady hardwood hammock, away from the blowing sand and salt spray of the beach. However, most sites are within walking distance to the beach. There are natural barriers between each site that allow privacy for the visitor. Since one of the goals in state parks is preservation, site sizes vary. There are a few sites that can accommodate camping rigs up to 40'.

Nightly Camping Rates for Anastasia State Park are:
Year Round: $23.00 plus tax
(Rates subject to change without notice.)

Camping supplies can be purchased at the Salt Run Outpost, located at the campground entrance. This concession-operated park store offers camping supplies, ice and firewood and has bicycles, beach and water-related equipment available for rental.

Fishing
For the fisherman, Anastasia State Recreation Area is a great place to haul in the big catch. The area just north of the bird nesting area at the jetties, as well as Salt Run, are well-used sites. Nature Trails
We feature a self-guided nature trail that allows you to walk over ancient sand dunes now covered with a hardwood hammock. Brochures describing the birds and trees found in the hammock are available at the ranger station upon request.

Picnicking
Please come by and enjoy our picnic facilities. Anastasia State Park also has one (1) picnic pavilion for daily rentals. Contact our Ranger Station at 904-461-2033 to reserve your pavilion, or if you have any additional questions about our picnic facilities.

Swimming
Allowed north of the beach ramp and lifeguards are on duty during the busy summer season. Swimming is discouraged south of the beach ramp due to strong currents, and the absence of lifeguards.

Reservations for campsites may be made up to eleven (11) months in advance.
