This is a shady place! The rustic natural setting of this Jacksonville City park and campground is appealing due to the large trees, abundant greenery, and beautiful beach. Our stay was from November 30th to December 3rd when the temps were in the 60s during the day. The shade made the campground temp lower; this must be fantastic in the heat of the summer.
Setting up camp.
We chose site 290 to be closer the entrance and therefore the beach. One could walk to the beach from the campground. However, we had a rental car so we loaded up chairs and drove to the beach access.
Hanna Park is amazing. It is large with several beach access points and lots of parking. During our visit there were not many people on the beach or the campground. It must be packed during peak beach-going season.
Take a look at the website. There are trails galore all through the park and a lake for fishing.
Here are shots from our site.
Whiskey's aunt and dog that live in Florida drove up to meet us. They tent camped at site 266. Here is their set-up.
Here is a video tour of the campground and nearby beach.
We visited nearby Mayport.
We give Hanna Park two thumbs up!
