they have nice facilities and the best access to the ocean in Jacksonville, in my opinion. We camped there for two weeks, and the staff were nice, but the raccoons will rob your food blind if you aren't careful.

We mainly go to Hanna Park for the beach. They are much cleaner than Jax beaches and the parking is very convenient. It is also less crowded than Jax beaches. There is a small admission charge since it is a park but it offers more than just beaches. We did kayak there but it was a little disappointing, the "lake"... More

We loved the mix of beach, without commercialism, hiking trails and separate biking trails, and the lake. This is a wonderful place.

Spring break camping at Hanna! Wow! Our kids are grown with families of their own so thankfully the camping area does have a couple of rows that are not filled with families. It is great though to see the kids on their bikes or skateboards just enjoying being out & about. Beautiful, natural setting under the canopy of native Florida... More

Between the beach, cookouts, bike trails, and natural Florida scenery; this place is fantastic. Beware of going to the beach on the weekends in the summer, it's packed.

People in the office are the RUDEST you will ever deal with. They are city employees and hate their job. Camp host harass campers. The campground is wonderful. I hate dealing with the employees. They are the worst of incompetence. Stay at the State Parks close by. You'll be glad you did. Trust me . I used to camp here... More

Easy access to the beach with plenty of parking. Sun, shade, it's all there, and not expensive to enter the park. You can hike, bike, camp. Plenty of spaces for large group or family picnics near beach or the lake. Best to bring your own food and soft drinks.

I grew up in Jacksonville, and I absolutely love Hanna Park. It is great for biking, walking, fishing, picnicking, and beach combing. There is also a freshwater lake within the park where you can rent paddle boats, canoes, and kayaks. Watch out for gators! If you paddle along quietly enough, you can see the them watching you! The beach is... More

We were camping here with our 36 ft Class A Motorhome. There are lots of trees and activities that the kids can partake in. Not organized activities, at least not in the Winter months, but the beach and lakefront are nice along with quite a few playgrounds for the kids. The largest playground is over by the lake. During the... More

Many locals on already know about this natural playground, but even as a North Florida native, I had know idea as to the extent of the trail system for both hiking and mountain biking. Coupled with the fact that you can walk to the beach or have a lake stroll and one could consider this among the top municipal parks... More
