Oct 2015 - $33.00
Spent two nights here along our journey. Campground is a little crowded but was able to park our 42' MH plus toad okay. People friendly and helpful. Cable and WiFi okay. Park has a lot of amenities including a nice cafe with excellent food. - Rick & Brenda

Site was level but could of been bigger. Site had great shade. Full hook up. Park is half paved and half gravel. Gravel side very dusty with pot holes, needs paved. Nice lake to walk around. Easy on and off to the Beltway. Ex navy gentleman escorted us to our site and was informative of park, very friendly. Cafe on site is a plus. Cabins available to rent. Wi-Fi weak. Appearance of park needs some attention. Landscaping around buildings and beach needs makeover. Overall a good place to stay with nice staff. Stayed on our way to Disney. Enjoyed our visit. Happy Camper. - Arnold Trout

The park is mixed with full timers and daily/weekly renters. You can tell that the park is old. The staff were nice, helpful and friendly. The park does not drain well after a good rain. We were in the section where there was not paved roads, just gravel and the pot holes need major attention. The food is excellent from the cafe (pizza, salads, etc.). This park could be better with a little maintenance on the roads and sites. - MarkG.

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

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's right in Jacksonville so it was close to where we needed to be. The majority of the park is either mobile homes or long-term RVers. The front of the park is for the short-termers. The staff is very friendly and all the amenities worked fine. The lots are pretty small so our neighbor's awning was almost touching our slides. Fleetwood advertises free wifi but during our stay it was unusable. Either it would not let us on or else once on, it wouldn't let us do much surfing before it stopped working. The RV park is located right off a main road so there is a fair bit of road noise and there's a train that passes nearby in the early mornings. If you're a light sleeper the noise may bother you. We'd probably stay at a different rv park a little further from Jacksonville the next time we're in the area. - LifeRebooted

RV parks in Jacksonville are very limited so this one is handy for business in the city or when you have people to visit. 25 minute drive to beaches. The neighborhood is a little questionable but we had no trouble during our stay. The park is half "trailer park" and half for Rv's. The staff and managers are great people and run the park very well. The only main let-down for the park is the bathrooms. No doubt the managers are limited on what they could do with run-down aging bathrooms that are difficult to clean. It is time the owners dipped into their pockets and modernized them. An update for the building is way overdue and as a result we could only say that they were way below the standard expected of $35 a night. - Aust 1

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

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

This is a city park with lots of overgrown vegetation & narrow roadways. They did not provide a park map, which was odd as we mentioned a couple of times that we had never been there before. Electric on site 9 was very fluctuating. The rate included a $5 charge for making an online reservation. Sites are heavy sand with some space & vegetation between them, and the roads are paved. Sewer hookup is odd in that it is horizontal to the ground and not straight up. We got many over the air TV stations. Bathrooms were dated, but OK. It is a long walk to the beach so get directions before you set up camp as we did not see any signs & were not provided a map. - R&S

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

The campsites and roads in this interesting state park are small. Our 29 foot motor home was just about the largest vehicle you could get in there. The park covers the entire island, with a road running through the middle. The beach is on one side of the road, and the campground is on the other. There is plenty of parking at the beach. The campground is loaded with vegetation, huge live oak trees, Spanish moss, and vines. It looks like a set from Jurassic Park. The campground also borders a wetland area with kayaking and fishing. The campground is in a depression and cell coverage is non-existent. - User3302

We have frequently stayed here as an over night stop over the years. Long, level sites. WiFi is password protected but didn't work this time. Didn't bother to tell the office.
Power good. Had Chinese food delivered so we didn't have to go out or cook. - MissingLinc

This park is just off I-95. The park is fairly new, well laid out, with all pull throughs. The sites are good sized for a Florida RV park, with concrete pads and well placed utilities. The park wifi is hard to access and very slooow. The cable has 66 analog channels with all the major channels. This park could be a 9 or 10 except for it's location directly in line with the main runway at Jacksonville airport. If you don't mind a jet taking off directly over your head every 10 minutes then you'll really like the place. If noise bothers stay somewhere else. - lllkrob
