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.

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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!

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.

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.

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.

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.

One of our favorite parks that we have stayed at. This is a great park and a spectacular value! Beautiful setting, gated and secure, sites are one block from the ocean, and reasonably priced. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV, although we worried if we we were headed to the right place as some of the surrounding neighborhood is not the greatest. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed walking around the park's nature trails, lake, and of course to the ocean. Lots of mountain biking trails in the park. Clean and attractive sites and park grounds. Not only would we definitely return, we cant wait to return here! We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The campground was in the middle of having all the electrical work done and completed sites were in a total mess, the ground has not been raked to level the sites, branches and twigs laying everywhere, the dirt on the sites were not packed down. I expected them to be cleaned up if that is what the workers there are supposed to do and not sit in their golf carts in the campground talking to one another. The campground looked like a dump. If the workers spent time cleaning this place up it could be making a lot more money. Hope something is done real soon to fix the major problem of the workers slacking off.

A definite 10 if not for some tricky access, tight turns and low hanging limbs and vines. It's OK, but gets your "pucker factor" going. The park is beautifull and sits under a dense canopy of live oaks with spanish moss. That rules out satellite but we got plenty of stations over the air. There are also plenty of Red Boxes in the area. They are in-progress on upgrading all sites to 50amp right now and the park is very well maintained in general. Security is good with coded gates and guards. The sewer ports are strange, with a riser that comes up and turns parallel to the ground, so have some way to get your hose up and situated to drain well. We'd definitely stay here again. Also, it is only 15 minutes to Mayo Clinic. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This park is owned and run by the City of Jacksonville. It is a gem! Roads are paved and sites are gravel/sand and quite level. Good walking areas. There is a campground store/restaurant at the RV entrance, but we did not use it. A word of caution. There are trees and lots of them. Unhitch at the main registration area and drive (if towing) to plan your moves. We did OK with the 42' motor home, but pre-planning was essential. You will do OK, but check the campground route and your site. Everyone (staff and campers) were extremely friendly. Without question we would stay another few days on a future trip to the area. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.Undo
Singleton's Seafood Restaurant on A1A near the Naval Air Station is a must. It is a short drive from the park.TexL23 • January 2015
