  • My girlfriend's and I go here alot. We take pictures of all the driftwood and pose by the big driftwood trees. It's a great place to explore. Great for family day at the beach.  more »
  • Little Talbot Island has been a favorite of our family for over 20 years. The beaches are clean and never crowded. Fishing is always good. Easy access to several beaches as well as pavilions for BBQ. ...  more »

  • We wanted to rent kayaks and looked for them on their homepage. The link we followed sent us to a company that rents kayaks. That particular company has a nice little gift shop but the kayaks weren't really great. No working food rests and very low seating so that you hit your hands with every paddle. We kayaked through oyster fields which was good to have seen it, but really not exciting at all. The "sand beaches" are hardly beaches at all. The one was about 4 meters broad. The other one was loaded with boats blasting loud music . So not really what we expected at all. I was very disappointed that the State park sent us to an address that had us kayaking in a completely different area/environment.
  • Small but less traffic. $5.00 to get it well worth it. Don't have to worry about big crowd.
  • Beautiful natural beaches and great camping available here.
