I have never driven on a beach before and it was my first time to do so. Easily the highlight of my trip! Have to be careful with some of the sand and the small birds that are all around the beach - you wouldn't want to ruin their habitat. I love the fact that you can park in the... More

water was just right, good sand, busy, busy beach. Like a giant tailgate party. Bathroom facilities are a far way. Blue John's set up 200yds from main beach area

This is a nice little park near the beach. has tennis courts and a little grassy space. This is a park tucked in between houses, so you might drive by and not see it.

This is a wonderful place to spend the day. Nice long beach for walking. One of the few places you can drive your vehicle on.

So, keep this in mind that I am from Minnesota so driving on the beach was the highlight to our visit! It was great to be able to drive on the beach and park close to the water! Our visit was on a Thursday so the beach wasn't crowded and we were able to drive on the lagoon side as... More

The park itself is great. However, the beach is small and crowded. It lacks character with no waves and tough sand. I was not pleased with the number of people who brought speakers and blasted their choice of music right next to us, nor did I enjoy the "fishing" taking place all around us (somewhat scary, really).

My friend and I went camping and got a spot on the river. Awesome view. That's about the only good thing. We got stuck in the sand and everyone wanted to help but they couldn't. Called the front desk and all the had to say was it wasn't their responsibility. We weren't mad but we were hoping to get some... More

Huguenot is a lovely beach park, but for me the beach side is the least attractive part because it's so crowded on weekends. The water is wonderful, and a popular option with local surfers. The beach is a long spit, with a lagoon side that I prefer, for kayaking and SUPing and photographing the incredible bird population. The tides provide... More

We come to Jacksonville every summer since this is where my dad is from. My aunt reserves a spot on the river every year. This year we decided to bring my dog she is a big baby and does not like us to leave her home alone. We went to the beach on Saturday morning to meet up with my... More
