Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

This gorgeous 1,640-acre park is home to 3.2 miles of pristine and isolated beaches, majestic sand dunes (some over 25 feet tall!), three coastal dune lakes, wetlands, sand pine scrub and long-leaf pine forests.

Topsail Hill Preserve is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, and with over 13 miles of deserted trails, it’s also a hiker’s paradise.

Fisherman can try their luck on either the freshwater coastal dune lakes, or on the beach, where Pompano, Redfish, Spanish and King Mackerel might well be on the menu. (Please note that a fishing license may be required for both fresh and saltwater fishing.)

Topsail Hill Preserve is also home to one of the top-ranked RV and cabin rental parks in the nation. With 150+ shaded RV sites (big rigs welcome), 2-bedroom/2-bath cabins, 22 tent sites, a swimming pool and a stocked fishing lake, it’s little wonder that Topsail Hill Preserve State Park consistently ranks so high with ReserveAmerica customers.

There’s even a free tram system that whisks campers and their beach gear out to Topsail’s blissfully undeveloped sugar white shores.
