About: Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, this windswept park is named for Florida folk singer Gamble Rogers and railroad entrepreneur Henry Flagler. The beach is the most popular feature at this park, where visitors enjoy swimming, sunbathing, or beachcombing. The daily low tide is an ideal time to observe shore birds feeding in tidal ponds; summer months bring sea turtles that lay their eggs in the golden-brown sand. On the Intracoastal Waterway side of the park, picnic pavilions provide a shady place to enjoy a meal. A nature trail winds through a shady coastal forest of scrub oaks and saw palmetto. Boaters and canoeists can launch from a boat ramp on the Intracoastal Waterway. The park's full-facility campground overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and is just a short walk along a boardwalk from the beach. Located in Flagler Beach off Highway A1A.
The campground has 34 sites located on the primary dune of the beach, close enough for an excellent view of the Atlantic Ocean and a constant breeze. Dune walkovers provide easy access to the beach while protecting the fragile dune system. All sites feature water, electricity, a picnic table and a fire ring. A communal dump station is free to park campers. A Bedtime Story Camper Lending Library provides picture books for campers aged four to nine. Ask to check out a book at the ranger’s station. Pets are allowed in the campground, but are prohibited on the beach.
