This is our second time staying in the park. We had no issues with positioning our 37' motor home in lot 9. Lots are very shaded. The "roads" are narrow and winding so suggest arriving in daylight. There are so many amenities at this park - would be great for kids but we enjoy as well. Walk to the beach can be a bit far for some but is lovely. We will definitely go back.Arrive in daylight. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Very wooded campground. Dirt sites, most are far from level. Long walk to the beach. Facilities were disgusting. We have a motor home that I would not want to try and maneuver through the winding roads. Wanted to give the kids a camping experience and for that it was a good one night stay. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Tent.

Went for a weekend getaway and discovered a place I'd know about for years had more to offer than I ever knew. The sites are laid out very poorly unless you get a pull-thru. My 30 ft camper would not fit in the site for rigs up to 35 ft. Best rule of thumb for back-in sites if your camper is over 25 ft is to look for 40 and 45 ft sites cause whoever measured the sites didn't have a clue what they were doing. If you backed in the way the site was set up you would be about 30 ft from the hook-up. Sites are very close with just enough overgrowth to make you think you have privacy. Lots of stuff to do, playgrounds for kids, hiking trails, lake for boating/fishing, bike trails, and the beach. The bath houses are very old (pay phone outside one of them, didn't check to see if it still worked) but they were as clean as something that old could be. Overall we enjoyed the park, and will stay again. Next time I will use my rule of thumb for site size. The store has firewood and extra sewer line which you may need. The beach is within biking distance, younger campers could walk but I'm old and fat so I didn't try it. The lake has alligators like any other southern lake so be careful if you're a yankee ... gators like yankees. No alcohol allowed so make sure you have plenty of red solo cups. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bath-houses a bit dated. Narrow roads, heavy - sometimes low canopy of trees. We love the Park, stay about 3 times per year. Dog friendly, no dog park, but you can bring your dog, on a leash to the beach. Great for bike riding. No wifi. Farthest site is only half mile to the beach.

Liked the park with a few exceptions... It is close by the Coast Guard / Navy base - so you here helicopter traffic a bit. The roads degraded - but we made it in with no problem (even saw a tag axle 45ft motor home in one of the spots). Our site was narrow, but separated from the two sites on either side of us with trees/bushes. It was also very level. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Big Park! This park is very big and offers a lot. Ocean on one side and lake on the other. Several biking\hiking trails. Gated which is a plus. Even though the park is big the campground is tight. Mostly 1 lane roads. Our site was plenty big enough for us and was very private. Lots of kids running around but no issues at all. There were hosts at almost every loop but never once approached us or stopped by. Honestly, I have no idea why they are there, they didn't seem to enforce any rules either. That is my only minor issue. Wonderful park, good hook-ups although the sewer is strange. Decent OTA tv. Also close to the PGA tournament which made it convenient. We would certainly stay here again.

Get to this park while it is day light. There are a lot of trees that hang over the road. Our neighbor hit one while coming is and did some nice damage to his front cap.

The bathrooms at this park are "serviceable". They are not always clean and a lot of the time things are broken. But we love this park. The reasons: 1. Sites - they are great. If you go more than once you will make note of the sites you like best. 2. Beach - is great! Access is easy. Advice on booking so you don't loose as much money if you can't make your reservation (this came from a park employee) - you can pay just the minimum deposit when you reserve online and pay the rest when you get to the park. *This is important, if like me you thought you had to pay all of it and suddenly you can't make it. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

This is our third visit to this wonderful park. Great access to the beach, great hiking trails and great mountain bike trails. My type of place. We are here the last week in Feb and the weather is in the low 70's. Go two miles inland and it's 80. It took me about 20 minutes to land our 5th wheel in our site. Very close quarters and limited room to maneuver. I only had to put an 1.5" block on one side to level out. The septic connection is a horizontal connect (first for us) but it makes you use the screw-on attachment device that comes with your hoses (sure way for no spills). Good power, good water pressure and good OTA TV reception. Our Verizon hot spot strong and our T-Mobile cell strong. For on-line reservations, you have to create an account with the Jacksonville Parks (easy to do). This park is very busy and fills up fast. We made reservation 6 weeks in advance. Advice..Get a site much longer than your rig, you will be glad for extra room to maneuver. We will definitely come back here again. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a real diamond in the rough for us!! Planned to stay 2 nights and ended up staying one more! Very nice open sites, and the people there were very helpful when we arrived. There were lots of trails to walk with/without dogs and well as bike (which we didn't have time for) and it was only about a 5 minute walk to the Atlantic Ocean beach, which was beaUUUtiful!!! We will definitely be staying here again any time we are going through the Jacksonville area...hopefully for longer stay! Of note, if you are visiting soon, know that because of the weather, the tics are bad this year so be sure you and your pets are protected...we didn't get any, but always good to be aware and prepared!!

This is one of our favorite campgrounds, and we make it a point to stop each year as we enter Florida from the north. The campsites are spacious and clean. It was clear that the hosts had raked the areas around the utility post and fire pit. Most sites have a very private feel, as though you are surrounded by Florida jungle. It's just a short walk to the beach or a fresh water lake. Many guests use the park for off-road biking. Beautiful. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Site 269 looks like a pull-through, but it's not. We pulled in nose first so that we'd have privacy in our sitting area, but you could back in if you prefer. We parked the car on the other end of the "pull-through-looking" site, with the fire pit between RV and car.

The park location and beaches are wonderful - and kudos to the city of Jax for providing for all citizens such a wonderful facility to enjoy, but much needs to be done to improve the overall camping experience. We camped here beginning Nov 17, a Saturday, and the park was over-flowing with unattended children and groups of young students using the park for partying and binge substance abuse. After 9 or 10 pm we were puzzled that no law enforcement presence was visible. Well past midnight no one seemed to be patrolling the park, and there was plenty of loud, drunk and disorderly conduct to observe. The next morning was even worse, with (as noted by a previous reviewer) disgustingly trashed toilet facilities (we saw feces and vomit on bathroom floors) that would encourage anyone to use the woods rather than the park restrooms. Smokers in the bathrooms seem common here as well. We are veteran campers and cannot understand such negligence on the part of park administration or fellow campers. The camp sites are also bizarrely arranged - large class C motor homes mingle next to tent campers. Great location and beach access – but the campground needs more aggressive monitoring and bathroom facilities need badly upgrading. Overall, a disappointing stay. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Water and electric good. Site mostly hard "sand" in amongst a LOT of Florida beach vegetation. Oaks, Spanish spear, et al. Roads paved but narrow - "you can do it" (if that fellow in a classic 40' Continental Class-A can do it). Beach is a 5- min. walk - or bike ride. Great place to see how things likely were 100 years ago on the Florida coast. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Hanna Park is a pearl in a raw oyster. It's wonderful but you have to dig it out yourself.

I stay there often for its proximity to Mayo. Others because of the beautiful beach, tropical forest, and good fishing. The park is lightly occupied during the week, locals come for the weekends. Holiday weekends pack the park.

The online reservation system is greatly improved and is usable now. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.
