“Fun in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

A little out of the way but no big crowds. Just sand, water & Sun.
Good fishing in the river, the ocean or the inlet. Wide, white sandy beaches.

“Nice, clean beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We heard about this park from the manager at the hotel where we were staying in Jacksonville. I have never driven on a beach before and could not believe how big this beach is. The camping area is small, but if you go on past it, you get to the beach access. It is hidden by the dunes, so you have to know where you are going. People were fishing, picnicking, cooking on grills,biking, walking, and laying in the sun. What a wonderful way to spend the day!

“The one park everyone visits in Jacksonville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The Jax area has one drive -on beach and this is it. Weekends in the summer can be wall to wall but typically week days are more roomy on the beach. A great location north of the city with views of Mayport Naval Station, the Ft George Inlet, and the mighty Atlantic before you. Camping, pic-nicking, water sports, or just driving around near the waves coming ashore, this place has a variety of fun going on. Different times of the year find areas of the park sectioned of as bird sanctuaries with thousands of nesting shore birds.
