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.

Lots of space for our 39 foot fifth wheel. Huge park, walking distance to ocean and beaches. Lots of bike trails. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Biking, kayaking and walking on the ocean beaches.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Singleton's Seafood Restaurant on A1A near the Naval Air Station is a must. It is a short drive from the park.

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.

Very shady park - if you want sun this is not the place. Very nice for summer heat - buggy though, so be prepared. Close to beach, 1 mile walk, great parking at beach though. Great bike trails, and lake for canoeing. Avoid site 98,99,100 - low and watery if rains. Look for sites that are not with the tent crowd if you want less activity. We were in 37' 5th wheel, some areas very tight, be picky about where you stay. They change the gate codes on Tuesdays and may not mention this until you get to the gate. Will go back in fall or spring We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has some nice and not so nice features. The main roads are wide but there are lots of overhanging tree limbs, and we snagged quite a few of them. The roads in the actual campground are okay but on the narrow side. Again, lots of overhanging tree limbs. We were in site 279 and it wasn't close to level. Took us several attempts and blocking the front tires to even things out. Unfortunately for us, there was a Nor'easter passing through and we had torrential rain and wind for three days. The sites are not paved so it was pretty messy. The sites do offer a fair amount of privacy with lots of vegetation. There is easy access to the beach, hiking and biking. The beach isn't the prettiest one I've ever seen but it was close by. Overall, it was very quiet with a few overhead helicopters during the day. I'm not sure if we would stay here again or not. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Delightful municipal park campground. Full hookups. Dirt sites were not level. Many amenities including beach and lake within easy walk, hiking trails, and picnic areas. Firepits at sites. Camp store was closed. Campground had gate securing it from rest of park. A good place to hold a rally, we were with an Airstream group. We enjoyed our stay and may return. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Travel Trailer.

Kind of hard getting in and out on the campground interior roads. Very narrow and very sharp turns. If I was any longer I would have been scraping trees going around corners.Forget the satellite with all the tree cover. I did expect the antenna to work being so close to the city, but I didn't get any channels. Large site and even larger mosquitos. Huge beach access and parking. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I have reviewed this park several times before, but am again. No question it is a great park. Several improvements have been made. The electrical systems have been improved in many sites. One of my previous complaints has been removed. Since 9/11, the Navy base had been doing continuous helicopter flights around the adjacent Navy base as part of the security and the did make some noise (at several thousand feet). That is gone now. The area was hit a week before by tropical storm Bryl the week before, but things were generally cleaned up in the campground. There are many nature trails and some had limbs down. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.
