BEWARE OF THIS PARK! . Unfriendly staff and poor management. We've stayed at FLamingo lake numerous times for business travels.while most stays have been suitable for my purpose this last visit ended horribly. The manager called me after I checked out to say that he had a problem to address. He said my husband was overheard by another guest on Thurs morning asking a staff member for "white powder". Of course I was in shock. My husband and I vehemently denied these accusations as we do not use drugs. He said we were never allowed back. I tried to find out when this happened and who the "guest" and the employee were but the manager refused to speak with me any further. As for the rest of the park, there is a nice lake which I didn't use. The cafe food was below mediocre. The front desk staff with the exception of a very few employees are rude and unhelpful. The bathrooms smell like mildew and are very dated. The park roads are not paved and the dust there is intense and covers everything. In my opinion the bad thing about this park is the new management. This is not a welcoming fun place. I would be very wary of staying here as they can obviously say whatever they like if they don't want you there. - Rachel123

Large campground on a lake with many, many full time residents. WiFi does not exist here...they claim to have it but I could not get on in the four days we were here. The lake looked nice but we did not utilize the beaches or the restaurant. If you like dust, this is the place for you. We had a pull-through under the power lines next to a main road and our rig was coated with a layer of dust when we left. Magnesium chloride on at least the main dirt road would be a huge help; seemed like there were more employees in golf carts raising dust than rigs driving by. I would not stay here again. - Zak16

This a regular overnight stop for us when leaving Florida. Has stayed consistent over the years. Easy on/off Interstate. Level sites, escort to site, utilities good. Good Cable, with just average wi-fi. Nice walk around the lake with the pup. There appears to be more full-time sites every time we come. This can be a very busy place during the summer, the lake is nice to swim in, with big inflatables for kids. We stayed in one of the overnight pull thru sites. We would stay here again. - Living the Dream

We stayed at Fleetwood in March and again in May, both times while we visited a relative in Jacksonville. As other reviewers have stated, the 10 "visitor" spots are all at the front of the park, across a parking area from Route 1. The rest of the park is for long-termers and permanent units. Some of them are run down. That said, the utilities were convenient and easy to use. If you are in 1A - your cable outlet is on your "door" side on the neighbor's utility pole. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The office is closed on weekends, but you can reach a staff member by phone if you need one. There was a mix-up with our site when we arrived on a Sunday, and the manager fixed it right away. - ShoreXplorers

This RV Park has 10 cement, very tight pull-thru overnight sites in front of RV Park facing very noisy/busy Highway 1. The other 90 back in sites are monthly type permanent sites directly behind the front pull-thrus. All utilities including cable TV are strong with good location. Other than being very noisy the park is located 20 mins from downtown Jacksonville and 20 minutes from Mayo Clinic. Maintenance workers are constantly cleaning leaves, mowing grass and trimming bushes so park is clean but older. - RJourney

This is a good place to stay if you have things to attend to in Jacksonville. This Park is about 20-25 min from Mayo Clinic and the heavy traffic goes the opposite way in the morning and the evening. The staff is pleasant and helpful Nevertheless this is an older park mostly populated with permanent residents mostly in fairly old units. The sites for overnight users are in the front of the park. They are quite close together. The hookup are satisfactory. We would stay here again, for it is the most convenient place for activities in Jacksonville or points east of the city. - hoppytoad

Huguenot is a Jacksonville "City" Park located at the mouth of Saint Johns River. We love this primitive river side campground and have been camping here for years. RV's will need a low noise generator. Bring your bug spray. The showers and bathrooms are currently in poor condition but in working order. Weekdays are quiet but the locals pack in for the beach and party during the summer weekends. We consider the weekend party part of the charm and join in. - MIL-SAT

Primitive sites that are quiet except for the ships coming in over the night. It was a foggy night so they were doing their horn blasts. The bugs were very bad. - kurt111

We camped at Huguenot State Park on the drive back north from DisneyWorld. The park is primitive and very natural. We had site 14 which was a corner site with a beautiful view of the bay. The kids enjoyed catching hermit crabs by the shoreline. The ocean beach is a short drive away where you can park on the beach. The beach is nice and the water was very warm but we noticed a person letting their dog use the ocean to do its business in front of the lifeguard, yuk. The bathrooms were very dirty and there were kids partying all night long. Normally this is not a problem but without electric and AC on an 80 degree night the windows have to be open. Didn't see a ranger once except when checking out. The dump station was also out of order when we were checking out so we had to drive with dirty tanks until we found a station at Camping World in Savannah. Overall the campground is nice but I wouldn't consider camping in Florida in the summer again without electric and AC. - GaryKPA

Upon arrival we were offered opportunity to unhook and visit campground to determine site space (recommend). It is good that we did as many sites indicated on map by length would not accommodate our big rig with slides. We found many level sandy sites that would and enjoyed a quiet week amongst full canopy of palms, oaks and pines as no satellite but 20 antenna stations. Roads narrowly paved, new full hookups at all sites, leaves and palm branches covered sandy sites, mostly level, 5 minutes from beach. Will definitely return if in Jacksonville area. - RJourney

We are full timers so we prefer a little more grass and concrete and not so much sand and dirt. Other than that it is like a typical state park campground. A bit overgrown and by Monday the restrooms are usually a mess.
The beach was very nice and the lake was good for canoeing and fishing. The spaces were spacious for our 37 ft fifth wheel, truck and car. The picnic tables should have been replaced a few years ago.
The main reason for the low ratings is that we were there when Mayport and Kathryn Abbey park had a record rain fall of 13.5 inches in 24 hours. Mud everywhere and a river running under our camper. (not the parks fault of course). Not one person came around to see if we were OK or if we needed some help but as soon as I threw some of our muddy mats and rugs over a tree branch to hose them off attempting to dig ourselves out it did not take long before they left us a nasty note to get our stuff out of their trees.
Not privately owned and the city employees have nothing invested. I get it!!!! - digger2280

The park itself looks well cared for...right up till you get to the campground. The store looks abandoned, the laundry was removed leaving the plumbing hanging on the wall. Campground is laid out in a wooded area and could be beautiful. However they have left downed branches laying around everywhere. Never saw park employees, camp volunteers were evident and doing a good job keeping sites clear and fire pits clean. Campground is located between the ocean and the lake, with no view of either. Was a little put off by the Strip Club at the entrance next to the elementary school. Will be back to the area, but will find a different park. - 3dognights

Unbelievably beautiful foliage in this park, but that beauty comes with narrow passage on the bumpy roads in the campground. Big rigs need not apply. Our 26' fifth wheel made it, but larger (especially taller) rigs would have difficulty. We stayed one night on the way south, and liked the park so much, we booked two nights during our return trip. We enjoyed that stay so much, we then booked a two week stay next spring. I think that says it all. - HabaneroMike

I really wish I could rate this higher and maybe if we had came at another time it would've been different. This was around the time of a passing hurricane so the camp area was mushy wet from the abnormally high tides just going out, the picnic table had so much algae on it that it wasn't useable at all. Other camp sites had standing water around the tents, thank goodness we had a travel trailer! You couldn't use enough bug spray, the mosquitos had rib cages..but we made the best of it for the time we were there. There was a nearby boat ramp to the marsh area and the beach area wasn't that far of a drive. You could also rent kayaks up the road. - 2Austins

Nice small park. Well kept. CG entrance and loop road a little rough. Campsites vary in privacy from sparse to very good. All shaded, level. Has small hiking trail, marina and pier at campground and larger hiking trail at the beach area. 2 mile bike trail. Good beach, picnic facilities and playground. Convenient cg to other associated parks and sites in area, J'Ville, Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Really enjoyed our stay here. - GDoug

A large, no frills park with nice-sized pull-thrus. Each site has a stone table and benches. There is no dog run , but the noring flea market has huge grassy areas and there are openings in the fence. Wifi was a bit slow. - Dreaming

Easy access. Desk clerk nice.
Noisy, dumpy surroundings.
Tip: come in late in the day and leave early in the morning, it does serve that purpose...... - LynnMc

Site size may be a little off. The site we were put on, 109, just barely fit us and we're 58' and the same for our friends on 108, and the width of the pad is approx 20' not 40'.
Pads are in need of some repair, ours was broken and very uneven right at the bottom of our steps. - Michelle & Ann
