“Nature Centre was fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We enjoyed driving onto the beach, parking and then walking along looking for shells and enjoying the space. It was December - so it was a little windy and cold, but just rug up and enjoy anyway. The best part was spending time with Shelley in the Nature Centre. She has set up a wonderful experience for kids and adults to learn more about the creatures of the area. Hands on activities and a wealth of knowledge that Shelley shared made this a really worthwhile stop.

“Naturally Inviting Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Auto access with neat doggie park facilities. Tides must be checked and watched to avoid being stranded on or off the beach. Boat access to the beach. Few amenities and camping spaces as well as rougher water. More adult than family oriented. Fees very reasonable. Great ferry access through Mayport.

“Great Location for Bird Watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

We stayed 5 nights at the Huguenot Memorial Park. If you don't mind boon docking (no hook-ups) this is a great spot to watch birds, boats, etc. many of the sites are waterfront. Our site faced the St John's River and was right across the water from the naval base. Once we got used to the helicopter traffic it was all good. Sadly, dogs were not allowed on the beach. The sites are fairly large, most are somewhat level, dump station and fresh water are available, as well as old showers and restrooms. The location pretty is convenient to Jacksonville, and the preferred Amelia Island.

“Sexually Harassed by Empolyee”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Upon check-in for our two night camping stay, the security guard was very inappropriate which caused us (two females) to feel extremely unsafe. He told us our reserved site was not very nice and when we asked if we should switch to a nicer site he said we should stay "at my house, in my bed, under my sheets." Instead of camping at our reserved site where he knew we were, we switched to a site in the main campground where there were many people camping. The next morning we filed a complaint with the campground and did not stay the second night. We are still awaiting a followup call from the campground manager.

“It is a nice beach by north Florida standards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

The beauty of this beach is that you can drive your vehicle and park on the beach. So pull in drop you tailgate turn on your car stereo and enjoy the beach, or watch your kids enjoy it while you relax, by your vehicle
