Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area At Flagler Beach
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, this 145-acre park is named for Florida folk singer and storyteller Gamble Rogers. Swim and play in the surf of the Atlantic Ocean, build castles in the golden-brown coquina sand or watch pelicans glide along the dunes and ocean waves. Fishing is popular along the beach, as well as, in the Intracoastal Waterway. Hike the three-quarter mile Joe Kenner Nature Trail and experience the plant and animal life in the shady maritime hammock. A ramp at the boat basin gives access to the Intracoastal Waterway. Enjoy a picnic at one of the park’s many sheltered tables or explore the park by finding a geocache. Canoe, kayak and bicycle rentals are available. The park’s very popular 68 campsites are split into two separate areas – the Beachside Camping Area and the Riverside Camping Area.
