Still cool to drive on the beach ... North Side and Dunes closed for habitat control & South Side was packed with people and cars.

Fairly quiet place. Not filled wit a ton of people. Its near the Naval Base Mayport. The shrimp boats and cargo boats come in and go out at the inlet of St. John's River which is to the right. Dolphin sometimes follow boats and manatees can be seen sometimes. I caught a sea robin, lady fish and amber jacks from the sand one day. I also like to see the Navy helicopters come arrive and depart.

Take a left once u get to the beach. Drive on the sand all the way to the end. It's much less crowded down there and u can wade over to the little island. Bring a beach hut, your grill, and cooler and stay all say.

What I really enjoyed about this is that you can drive up on the beach, put up a tent and BBQ. My first time there was this past Sunday and we had a good time although I wish they had trash cans on the beach to dispose of waste, but we just used a plastic bag for that. It was only $1 per person before 10 AM and I suggest you get there early to get a good spot. You should also park towards the back rather than closer to the water as the tide could come up and your car could be in water in no time! Overall a good relaxing visit!

We camped for one night, May 17, 2014 in campsite 59. Campsite is okay but that doesn't matter at all because the bathrooms are shared by every beach goer and are absolutely unsanitary and disgusting. Women didn't even have toilet paper and the toilet paper that was there was pasted all over the walls of the bathroom. The men had to stand in about 2 inches of piss and other backwash that was flooding the restroom with no toilet paper either. The ammonia could be smelled outside by the nature store. The only concern this place had was how many cars were at my site (which we paid for extra passes) when they should've been cleaning the restrooms. I will never, ever stay here again especially to camp. Stay away!
