More than 1,600 acres of unspoiled beaches, tidal marshes, maritime hammocks and ancient sand dunes make this a captivating destination for visitors to explore. The wildlife loves Anastasia State Park as much as the people do. There are abundant wading birds hunting for food along Salt Run, including colorful roseate spoonbills. Osprey and eagles rule the skies, and painted buntings and warblers often flit about the hammock forests. Visitors watch wildlife along the beach, from a canoe or kayak, or on the Ancient Dunes Nature Trail. As an added extra, the park's 139 campsites are just a short stroll from the beach.
