How Do I Get There?
Kinsouth is held at Little Talbot Island outside of
Jacksonville, Florida. The park's address is:
- Little Talbot Island State Park
- 12157 Heckscher Drive
- Jacksonville, FL 32226
Driving Instructions: Sooner or later, you will have to get to
Interstate HWY 95 or 9A, so...!
From 95 South or 95 North:
- Take 95 South to Exit # (Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island). From
the ramp, go left towards Fernandina. Keep going for several miles until
you cross over a big ass bridge. (Well it's big to ME.) Directly after the bridge at the next
red light, take a right. Follow that road around. After you pass the
airport (on your right) there is a turning lane (to the right) to get onto the Hecksher. Take it. If you miss that road, never fear. Just keep
going straight until the red light. Take a right and follow that road
until the next flashing light, then take a left onto Heckscher. Once on
Heckscher keep going. You will go over at least three tiny overpass like bridges. You will
see a sign that says Big Talbot Island State Park - DON'T FALL FOR THAT TRAP
WHATEVER YOU DO!!! You are looking for Little Talbot Island...
which comes up quickly after that; you will see a brown sign and a wide white
gravel space with the park entrance to your left. Unless your party is
already registered, go to the park entrance, let the rangers know you have
arrived, and do your thing. REMEMBER: THIS GATHER IS A REGISTRATION REQUIRED
EVENT, AND YOU HAVE TO BE REGISTERED PRIOR TO ARRIVING.
From 9A North or South:
- Take 9A until you reach the Heckscher Drive/Zoo exit. From 9A
North, you will go right off of the ramp and follow Heckscher all the way
around past the tiny houses and by the river. (If you haven't passed a
zoo by the first mile or two, you're probably going the wrong way.) You
will cross a good many bridges. You will also pass the Huguenot State
Park, which is recognizable by a flashing caution light in front of the park
entrance. After that will come Little Talbot Island State Park. The
brown park sign will be right before the entrance to the ranger station, which
is to your right. The white gravel entrance to the campground will be to
your left. Like I said before: Remember that this gather is a
registration required event, and you have to be registered prior to arriving.
