Gamble Rogers Memorial State Recreation Area
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway in Flagler Beach, this windswept park is named for Florida folk singer Gamble Rogers. The beach is the most popular feature at this park, where visitors enjoy swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing or fishing. On the river side of the park, picnic pavilions provide a shady place to enjoy a meal. A nature trail winds through a shady hammock. Boaters, kayakers and cannoeists can launch from a boat ramp on the Intracoastal Waterway.
North Peninsula State Park
More than two miles of beautiful, unspoiled Atlantic beaches beckon visitors to this park. Across State Road A1A, this Florida haven shelters rare creatures such as Florida scrub-jays, indigo snakes, and gopher tortoises. Visitors can spend the afternoon swimming, sunning at the beach, or surf fishing. Bird-watchers will enjoy spotting the native and migratory species seen in this park.
