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. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.
Safe Harbor Restaurant and Singletons is 15 minutes. Mayo clinic is 20 minutes.

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!!!! We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The beach is within walking distance and is really nice.
If you want to visit Amelia Island, which I highly recommend, take a right at the second light out of the park and go directly to the ferry. Easy on and off and about 40 minutes closer than the highway.

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. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Try Safe House Seafood, only a couple of miles from park and food was great.

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. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Travel Trailer.
Safe Harbor Seafood Market in Mayport was exceptional! You can choose from a cooked dinner to eat there or take out, or fresh seafood to take home & cook.

Beautifully private sites, very quiet except the occasional helicopter (there's a base right next door), and a reasonable value for money. That said, the internal paved roads are exceptionally narrow and twisty; there are mature plantings everywhere, making things a little perilous. Our site was a pull-through, but the directions on the park map put the hookups on the wrong side of the camper. We had to maneuver around the maze and go in from the back side. The site was pretty much level and quite private. The park is very close to the beach and can be walked to, but we drove. We had some trouble with the electric box circuit breakers popping off, but since it was such a short stay, we didn't stress too much. The sewer arrangement was a little odd, being set horizontal to the ground instead of straight in. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice city park, lots of trees. No cable, but we were able to get a few antenna channels. Our site was not very level. Roads are narrow and turns are tight, but we were able to do it in a 40' motorhome. We booked online and you don't get to choose your site. We had some rowdy neighbors singing karaoke until about 2:30am. The park has a nice system of mountain bike trails that you can get on right from the campground. The beach is across the road. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed just 1 night (during a trip further south) because it was convenient to the Jacksonville Airport (about 35 minutes) and on the ocean. Interior roads are paved but rather narrow, and not all one way, either. Might be a bit of a challenge for larger rigs if you meet oncoming traffic. The campground is heavily wooded, and sites are shady & sandy. Heavy vegetation separates you from the adjoining campsites, but you are fairly open to those across the narrow roads. Bathrooms are a bit dated, but pretty clean. The ocean beach area is a bit of a hike, probably too much if you're carrying anything, but maybe OK for a jogger. However, there is plenty of parking for those that drive over. I was there in early March, so it wasn't really beach weather, but it is a large area that should easily accommodate campers and day-use visitors. Lots of bikers, apparently the campground roads are very popular for biking & hiking. Security seemed good, with a code needed to access the campground (about a mile in from the park entrance) and bathhouses. I'd camp here again if I was looking for a good campground at a nice beach. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

This is a a great city park northeast of Jacksonville on the ocean. The campground is quite rustic but with decent spacing and full hookups. Bathhouses are older but clean. All sites are heavily treed so satellite use is very marginal if at all. There are all types of sites available, but there are adequate level sites for bigger RV as well. Interior roads are paved but narrow in many places, but again adequate to larger RVs. This is a great place to stay if in the area. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.
Singleton's Seafood Restaurant on A1A near the Naval Air Station is a must. It is a short drive from the park.

The electrical in this park has been recently upgraded, but I was not able to run my AC and electric water heater at the same time as the breaker would go off. Switched the water heater to gas, but still threw the breker when using the microwave. This has not happened on other trips in different parks. The roads are narrow and in need of repair. There was a 2 or 3 inch drop off from the pavement in front of my site. It is best to scout out the camp ground to select a site prior to camping as many are very small, even though the map states otherwise. The bathrooms were clean but not air conditioned. Great access to beaches and walking and bike trails. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice city park. Very easy to get in and out in spite of all the trees. Sunday night the bathrooms needed cleaning and some repair. We was there four nights. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground provides a nice secure setting for staying in Jacksonville. Guard gate is manned most of the time. We thoroughly enjoyed the bike riding, both paved and other. Tree cover is pretty heavy, making satellite TV difficult, not to mention the opportunity to scratch your RV getting in and out of your site. It'spretty tight in some places. Some sites are not very level, but manageable. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

We especially appreciated North Florida in January. Temps were cool, perfect for campfires and bike riding. Similar to October in PA. Sites are relatively large, surrounded by oaks and palmettos. Raccoons were common. What was really nice was the park was virtually empty! We had the place to ourselves to ride bike all over the park roads with almost no traffic. My wife liked that. The biggest attraction for me was the world-famous mountain bike trails that go around the park. I had never done that before and I want to go back and do it again! We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

As posted in my prior review, this is a wonderful park at a very reasonable rate. When making reservations you must view the online campground map and assure you are given an adequate sized site for your RV by the hourly female office workers. We were assigned a 40 foot site for our 38' RV. We couldn't even get in the site, and would have had nowhere to park our tow vehicle. We saw several others arrive with the same issue. We would certainly stay again, but will always double check our site assignment. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice wooded sites, but most are not level. We stayed at 271 and it was a pain. Camp store is closed, as of this date. Restrooms and showers are clean, but tired. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.
