“Hiking, swimming, beach, camping & more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

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 trees. Lots of hiking trails. And my favorite is that I can get out on my bike!

“Beautiful, but sometimes crowded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

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.

“Stay at the State Park down the road.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

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 all summer with my family and friends. The price was $16.00 a night. The city doubled the price, closed the store and changed the way to reserve a site. It's a nightmare. This was NOT planned very well.

“If you love outdoor recreation this is spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“Everything you'd want from a beach, and then some”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

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 beautiful, but it does not have the smooth sands of a tropical paradise. It is covered with shells. One of my favorite activities is looking for shells and shark teeth along the beach. I highly recommend it for couples, families, or quality time with yourself.
