Avalon State Park
State Road A1A North
Fort Pierce, Florida 34949
The park offers four medium-sized pavilions with barbecue grills
located off the main parking area. They are available on a first-come,
first-served basis. Electric and water are not available.
Avalon has more than a mile of increasingly rare undeveloped
beachfront. The park provides habitat for many species of wildlife.
Threatened and endangered sea turtles such as the loggerhead, Atlantic
green and leatherback nest on the beach during the spring and summer.
Dune crossovers protect the fragile dune ecosystem. The park is ideal
for swimmers, snorkelers, fishermen and sunbathers for beach
recreation. Swimmers and snorkelers are advised to be cautious of
underwater obstacles left behind by amphibious warfare exercises
during World War II. Visitors can enjoy a meal at sheltered picnic
tables overlooking the beach.
Avalon State Park is located four miles north of Fort Pierce Inlet
State Park, via Highway A1A and the North Causeway.
