We stopped here for a few days to visit friends in Jacksonville. The sites along the waterfront give a good view of the ship traffic on the St Johns river (and any ships entering/leaving the Navy boat basin). Last time we visited a Canadian sub came in for the weekend. Laundry is free. There is always a wind blowing off of the Atlantic so you cannot put your awning out. There is a dog park across the street along the waterfront. There is a two week limit but if you are coming during the winter, book you site well in advance because it is full all winter. The NEX and commissary is offsite and closed on Mondays.
Wilco, thank you for the great review. Did you have reservations in January for your stay and when did you make a reservation? The reason I ask is we were hoping to stay there early April. We called Navy booking and they are showing no availability. For the heck of it we tried the online Navy booking and it shows this campground ( and many other Navy campgrounds in FL and GA) as booked for ANY dates we put in, even mid summer.Wondering if there is an issue with booking Navy campgrounds. Finding it hard to believe that all the campgrounds we are looking at are booked for every date we try. Thanks for any help you may have.
