This place is beautiful! The $5 charge is worth it and more. This location packs fishing, camping, partying, playgrounds, waterpark, and a massive grilling area. You can rent canoes, kayaks, or bring your own. Do some geocaching or hiking while you're at it.
Mountain biking trails, hiking trails are short but sweet, fishing lake and off shore, walking distance to beach, lots of parking. Clean restrooms, showers, campstore. Can get crowded. Not a lot of privacy.
The first thing you should be aware of upon entry of this campground is that you may have to deal with some of the slowest park "rangers" you'll ever encounter. Once you've navigated this obstacle (and my sympathy for having had to deal with this, I know your pain all too well) you're in for a treat if you love trees and beaches and dunes, oh my. I've been camping here in tents, and now my own little RV, for the past 20 years, and I've still not explored every inch of the park.
My favorite part actually has nothing to do with the park, (The Poles surf spot located in Hanna is the best in North Florida) it's just an added bonus that the campground is here. And it's the best campground in which I've ever stayed. With full hookups and a multitude of sites to choose from, from totally private to right up in it with everyone. I love them all for their own reasons, and I've stayed in most!
The park is huge, with the best hiking trails in Florida IMO, a water park for the kids that adults not-so-sneakily enjoy themselves, shelters everywhere you need them, and ample parking throughout. Bring your bikes, my son learned to ride his here in the campground. The trails are excellent and range from beginner to advanced/expert. There's truly something for everyone here. If you don't love this park, you're doing it wrong.
Great local spot in May port village. Lots of beach, fishing, bike trails are the best…
Despite being in a dense Urban area, this campground a natural oasis. Beach close by - walking distance on park roads/paths. Nice lake (no swimming). Full hookups. Better for medium to small rigs. The big guys often have trouble on narrow roads within park. We had ATT and Verizon, and lots of over the air TV. Laundry available. Park can be a bit zooey on the weekends.
So much to do here, so close to the beach. Great camp store which lots of goodies. Clean bathrooms and showers, and fun trails! Also, great shaded camp sites!
We really enjoyed our stay. Our campsite was shady, clean and everyone was friendly. Close to the ocean, easy walk to the beach, I found a sharks tooth on the beach for my grandson. Fishing availed too.
Camped in site 141 - Pull thru sites with Full hook up in a 24' Travel Trailer. Just a stones throw from a huge lake for kayaking and fishing. Short 10 minute walk to 2 miles of private beach. 6 miles of hiking trails and over 20 miles of Biking Trails. Just a short 15 minutes from Downtown Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach! Full Camp store with Kayak and Bike Rentals.
Some sites are small- close together but Row I, J and K are the best!!
This place has everything you want for adventure. There are challenging trails, gorgeous beaches, and a great surf. We have had friends get married here and other friends move in with their RVs. If you go bike riding or trail walking, make sure to pay attention to the signs for the direction you should head on that particular day… and beware trail z.
If you can handle the Florida mosquitos, this will be heaven. It’s just a little gravel road walk from your tent to the stocked lake or the Atlantic beach. Well maintained. Although you have to (get to?) pass a strip club on your way in the park.
