June to Aug 2018

This was the very first RV Military park we stayed in. The amenities here are very few. Only half of the RV sites were paved. The other half of the RV sites, your RV sat in dirt. During the time we stayed for two months, every day it rained and part of RV pad was completely under water. The camp host and his wife were extremely nice and answered all our concerns. This RV park is in need of TLC. The base it self is so beautiful. The commissary was outstanding. They have a huge PX or NEX. It was brand new and had so much to offer. I miss all the good selections of great meats. The golf club is beautiful but the food is horrible and i mean horrible, the wait staff know there is a high issue and continue to serve bad food. I called the manager of the golf club to express my concerns on the wait staff and the food issue. He was aware there are issues but not to the full extent. Much improvement needs to be taken. You can stay here six months at a pop but we moved a month early so we could be closer to my work. Hopefully this place will make a great RV park someday. Never used the facilities, bathroom. The laundry room had no AC and made it uncomfortable to wash cloths in the extreme heat of summer. No cost to use the washer and dryers.

We spent the winter at NAS and the Office Staff, Tom, and the 2 Park Host, Mike and Rex, do a wonderful job. They are there to help and please and do. We have always had a great time at this park. My only complaint is with other RVrs who don't pickup after their dogs.

We spent 9 nights here. Had full-hook-up and level concrete site. Was able to get both antenna and satellite TV. Facilities were clean and laundry was free and easy to use. Close to downtown Jacksonville for touring. A very nice park, would definitely stay again.

We were met by Rex the camp host and he assisted in getting me backed in. We used the free laundry and the area was very clean. This is a good place to stay while in Jacksonville.

There were no RV Park sites for my dates of visit. However, after explaining to Tom, one of the park managers, that I only wanted to park my RV for three nights while I visited friends in the area, no hook-up required, he accommodated my request. For only $10, he get me a spot in the RV Storage Lot. I ran the refrigerator on propane and was able to quickly leave when departing. I did need to check in and outs my weapon at the Armory, which does add to arrival and departure time. I did drive through the RV Park. It is clean, well maintained and looks like a really nice place to stay. I hope to make reservations early enough next time through to stay in the Park. No comment on the Amenities/Facilities as I did not use any of them.

We have stayed at NAS JAX several times and it is one of our favorite military parks. Our site was plenty long for our 42’ fifth wheel and we had lots of room to park our truck. Great wi-fi was available. No cable but our satellite system worked perfectly. Lots of areas to ride your bike on base and a nice marina. The commissary is new and huge. Office staff are very friendly and helpful. Free laundry. Base is in a convenient location to many shops and restaurants. All this for $19 a night!

Called to make tent site reservation. Person who answered the phone reported the base commander is not allowing tents in the RV park anymore. My ratings reflect on their inability to accommodate us who won't drive our house everywhere. :(

We stopped here on out way through Jacksonville. The on-duty camp host wasn't even home. A former camp host assisted us and was very helpful. While the staff was very friendly, the sites are not level and the grasshoppers could have eaten my dog. It looks like they are doing some other renovations so hopefully it will become better in the future. I think we are just spoiled and probably won't stay here again anytime soon.

04 April - 04 October 2017

Registration and Check-in was quick & easy. After conversing with the facility staff, they informed that they now allow retiree's up 180 days on-site. At the end of the 180 day stay, you must leave for 120 days to reset the clock and then you can return for another 180 days. The camp host (Mike)met us at the park entrance and helped us set up in a back-in spot near the laundry. The upper sites are Concrete pads and the Lower spots are gravel. The upper pull-through sites are not really level and the closer you are to the laundry, the greater the pad slopes. Utilities worked well. Laundry is free. Bath house was cleaned regularly. The biggest annoyance has been the cell phone reception. On JAX NAS, only Verizon service receives any signal throughout the camp. ATT and Sprint is very spotty with an occasional single bar for voice communications. Texting works fine. Since I am on temporary assignment to Cecil Field for a year or more, I will spent my 120 days in the penalty box, then return to complete my stay.

Check-in was easy and the camp host met us at the park entrance and helped us set up in a pull thru in the lower section near the laundry. Site was gravel, not really level and short. We have a 40' coach with a tow dolly and the site barely fit the coach. Tow dolly had to be placed sideways and partially under the rig and the car was parked sideways. Utilities worked well. Laundry is free. Bath house was cleaned regularly. Biggest annoyance was an obvious squatter in one of the biggest back in sites across from us who used the road in front of the pull thrus like it was his backyard and tossed a football with his kids on the weekends very close to our motorhomes. He also allowed his dog to wander without a leash. He's been there so long that his 5th wheel is in the pics inside the handout the office gives you when you check in. It's also in a pic on the website. I'd love to know what arrangements need to be made in order to squat at a military RV Park and why exceptions like this are allowed.

Jacksonville didn't have much to offer and the area right near the base was very congested. Most attractions and shopping was either north or all the way across the St. John's river, which meant at least a 20 minute drive. Most folks told us the only must see in the area was St. Augustine, which was very nice to visit, but not a local attraction in Jacksonville. Campground, shower house, and laundry room was well kept. Campground host (Mike) was very nice. Mike met us at the entry to the park to show us to site #2. Met several other campers near us who were super friendly and helpful with local info. Best part of our stay was visiting the newly opened Commissary. It had only been open for three weeks when we arrived. One drawback to the new facility was lack of parking. We usually parked over by the NEX and walked the few hundred feet to enter the Commissary. No big deal unless you are handicapped or have issues walking longer distances. Assume this will be resolved when old facility is demolished if they add more parking spaces to the vacated space. No issues with water, power, or sewer. Laundry had five each washers and dryers that were free use for campground residents. One drawback was size of sites. We drive a 41' fiver, so it was even tighter. Couple towing a small fiver ended up hitting a parked truck two days after we arrived. The back end of the trailer hit the pickup of the spot behind the one he was pulling into. I felt uncomfortable because our truck is a full-size Ram 3500 with an 8-foot custom hauler bed. The spot was so small I had to park at an angle across the nose of my trailer and both the nose of the truck and the rear end of the trailer stuck out into or very close to the edge of the roadway. Value was average. Would like to see them add some space, but cost was reasonable. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return.

Not a bad camp. Improvements made over the years. Homesteaders...ughhh Office says 45 day stay in 12 month period. Something like that. But every time we stop in there are the same campers in the same spots. One is in the "old" area. Back of laundry room. His 5th wheel has been in the same spot for YEARS ! He is not the host. Fam Camps are not housing. Or mobile home parks. Length of stay should be applied equally to all campers.

We were here for for 5 days in a 5th wheel. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Park clean,and well cared for. Large commissary and exchange. Unfornuately both were being remodeled. Heavy rains every afternoon our site flooded, but it drained off fairly well. Good WIFI. I would recommend this park.

It was great!! We missed to Auto hobby Shop RV sign in office and Julie called me on my cell phone. Ben (the camp host) came right over and got us set up and had me go to the office and sign in. We stayed 3 nights, we had our adult kids with us and they used the shower facilities (Raving about how clean and well maintained everything is) Our Rv spot was very clean and well laid out. We played Golf on your great course and ate breakfast in the clubhouse all 3 days. Everyone we met and did business was wonderful and very helpful.

We stayed here for several nights and had a great visit.  Only problem was that it was somewhat confusing to get to the campground, the NEX, etc, but hey that's the military for you. They are really improving the roads and buildings, so this should change soon.  The office personnel were great, called us to make sure how to get to the gate, welcomed us, and were super friendly. The guest host, the campsites,the bathhouse and laundry were top notch. Not a place to stay for a long time, but close to St. Augustine, and other sites.  We plan on returning whenever in the area.

Not a bad park at all.  Wifi was free and works great early and late in the day. You have to stream TV because of trees block the signal for Dish. Middle of the day it must get overloaded. Laundry (never crowed), heads and grounds and always clean. Staff was fantastic. It is a great place to home base and go see the sites. Not much to do at the Camp ground. Does have a few trails. We would stay here again. We were in a motorhome.

Overall not a bad RV park...... But, office says no staying beyond 45 days in a 12 month period. I may be wrong on the exact number of days. But do believe it is 45 in a 12 month period. Every time we have stopped in we see some of the same HOMESTEADERS. The camp ground has improved. The spaces in back of the bath house have been redone. No more muddy space at the end of the row. Laundry room combo needs to be changed on the door. Every time we have stayed here free loaders come into the laundry room and do laundry. These are not people from the marina (they are authorized to use the RV laundry room). These are others who seem to think they can do a free wash and dry anytime the want. You, the paying customer, will just have to wait in line behind them. Over sight of the people who work in the office and the camp ground proper is lacking.

The staff is wonderful, sign in very easy. Good size sites, and clean. One of the nicer bath houses. There is a large PX, a few places to eat, and a good static display of Navy aircraft. The auto hobby shop is the best I've ever seen. I did not find an "official" dog walk, but there are areas to walk the pets. This is a place to come and relax, It is a ways to any activities.

We got to this RV park 35 min late due to wrong/missing directions stated here. We came off hwy 10 and you need to go I-295 SOUTH! Not north as stated in the directions. I'll make it more clear and easy here: coming from hwy 10, take exit for I-295 south going toward Datona beach, the first exit you will see it 21 and the number will go down, take exit 10, after you exit the road take a left at the "Y" then it comes to a "T" go LEFT, enter the base at the second gate on the right called "Yorktown gate" if you have a class A, take far right lane, if you take left lane it's a VERY tight fit and you have 2 inches on each side. Then drive straight and take a right on Jason road, there's a sign for the auto hobby shop, follow that to the end and auto shop will be on the right for check-in, there's signs that clearly mark RV office. The RV park is ok here, kinda small and cramped though, our site was a pull through but its very short, we couldn't leave our car hooked up because it blocked the road but laundry was FREE and the base is very nice, a lot of stuff to see and do.

NAS Jacksonville was a good experience. If you are unfamiliar with NAS JAX it can be challenging getting to and from the RV Park. Directions on Military Camp Grounds are spot-on, it is more traffic lanes on an off base change during rush hour. Recommend arriving mid day or late evening. Full base support/facilities, and awesome PX with 5-Star Golf course, gym is small but adequate. Lounge at Golf Course is awesome, don’t miss. No cable, Wi-Fi is not good at all unless you are standing next to the bathhouse. Great stop-off for continuing travel of visits to St Augustine, or other local attractions. Bottom line: if you are passing through a great place to stop for a few days, but extended stays are not recommended.
