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

Expect to be harassed, called offensive names,dirty facilities and everchanging rules. Incompetence from mgmt down. We stayed for 4 days paid a month in advance and as our group arrived we were told reservation made but no show, we had been there 3 days already, then called squatters and not allowed to use both spaces we paid for by COJ...

They apparently have a huge problem with squatters at the campsites at this beach. Their rules are based on how to avoid squatters and homeless people staying at their campsites without paying. The personnel here are rude, and could care less about their paying guests comfort as long as they have paid their fees. Even with paid reservations, one cannot... More

Still cool to drive on the beach ... North Side and Dunes closed for habitat control & South Side was packed with people and cars.

Fairly quiet place. Not filled wit a ton of people. Its near the Naval Base Mayport. The shrimp boats and cargo boats come in and go out at the inlet of St. John's River which is to the right. Dolphin sometimes follow boats and manatees can be seen sometimes. I caught a sea robin, lady fish and amber jacks from... More
