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.

Hard to beat at $14 a night with free laundry and wifi (use credit card to verify, but not charged). I do not consider this place "big rig friendly". I have a 44' 5th wheel. I also have a dually pickup. To me, big rig friendly is when I can have my coach and tow vehicle on the same spot. Here the pull thrus are at most 50'. Yes, my coach fit, but my truck had to be parked at the laundry/bath house. No, not a problem, but still not big rig friendly, IMO. Water pressure was fine. No flightline noise. The directions are slightly off. RV checkin is at the auto skills center at the corner of Jason and Birmingham. The gravel pullout is on Jason directly across the street from the auto skills center entrance. After you sign in and turn left on Birmingham, you stay on Birmingham, cross over Mustin , then turn right into the RV park. There is a blue sign at the park entrance on Birmingham. If you have a pull thru in the lower area, keep the laundry/bathhouse on your left as you drive to your spot. I really liked being able to reserve a spot. I wish NASKW offered this. Heck, would be nice if all military famcamps offered reservations.

The campground is in a good location although it is a bit rundown. The upper sites are concrete pads, however they are not level, not even close. The first site we were in, the pad was actually lower than the road, and were there during a pretty good rain storm, making our site a swampy mess. The free Wi-Fi in the upper part was good where we were. We moved to the new lower section, gravel pad and mostly level but we couldn't get the Wi-Fi. There is no clubhouse, the women's bathrooms/showers were clean and plenty of hot water, then men's apparently had no hot water at least while we were there. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. As far as we could guess the sites to get are in the upper section in the back row, those looked good or in the lower section as close to the laundry/showers as possible to pick up the Wi-Fi.

P.M. left this review using the Directory software: - The park is being updated. They have torn out the lower sites and are replacing the electric, paving the sites with gravel, removing extra trees so we can get satellite and the bigger rigs can use it. Should be great when done. Meanwhile, half the sites are not in use. Re messages on "homesteaders" the base allows people who are in their school to live at the park.

I'm going to echo "bcrocker", below. We reserved a full hook-up weeks in advance. I called in on the day we were arriving and was told we were being downgraded to a 'no sewer' site in the lower area (woods) because they were moving all long termers to the upper, pad sites, and had nothing for the 4 days we were going to be there. HOWEVER - the entire time we were there, there were 3 or more empty pad sites in the upper area. The individual who did this was not one of the ladies I have encountered before, all of whom were very nice. Don't know if this person was the same one bcrocker ran into, but I also suspect some type of agenda, and/or incompetence. He was also one of those people who seem to exude: "this would be a nice place to work if it weren't for those pesky customers". Otherwise, this remains a nice, clean, convenient area.

We were in site 37, a large concrete pad, 50/30-amp back-in. Sites are well spaced with picnic tables. We called ahead and were told to park in Site 34 and then come back to the MWR Office for check-in. After getting settled, we got a call from the office telling us we had to move as the power in that site had been reported as having a problem. Seems maintenance won't work on the problem with someone in the site. OK, we moved. About an hour later a large MH pulling a very long trailer pulled into #34 (being directed by another RV'er already here) and settled in. Maintenance had not been out yet. Don't know what that is all about but something seemed fishy to us. Laundry has five washers/dryers and is free. All facilities were clean and well maintained. We will return.
Yes the price is reasonable for full hook up and partial spaces. But, what is price if a FamCamp starts to fill up with homesteaders and you cannot get in? Jax NAS should follow their own rules on length of stay and make homesteaders move on. A Fam Camp is not a mobile home park.
You really can't beat the price, $14 a night for full hookup's. You do have to register at the Auto Skills Bldg on Jason Rd about 3/4 of a mile from the Birmingham Gate entrance. Make a left off Birmingham and park in the gravel pull out on the right side of the road. After checking in, just go around the block to Birmingham then straight to the RV park entrance. Once you enter the park, if you are in the lower campground (trees/dirt sites) you go to the left at the laundry/restroom building, if you are in the upper sites (concrete/no shade) you go to the right. We enjoyed the park, very quiet at night and with the free laundry, life is good!

Location is great for those that wish to play golf, walking distance to the course. Facilities were clean but a toilet in the men's area broke while we were there and remained not fixed during our stay. Close to commissary and NEX. They are making road improvements and access to the campsite can be tricky as the normal access point is closed (street becomes one way out) if you arrive after 3pm. you enter thru the south access point which points your rig in the opposite direction to enter sites, you need to go around the campsite and laundry/shower area to access the sites correctly. This should be corrected soon. Folks at reception are very friendly and helpful.
Nice area, close to a lot of shopping and the interstate. However, I was disappointed with the lack of communication by the office personnel at the Auto Skills Shop. We arrived on Wednesday, November 23 at 3:15 pm only to find that the shop had closed early (normal hours were supposed to be 0900 to 1600). No one tried to contact me and being new to this RV park, I had no idea where to go or what site I was supposed to be in. When we got to the RV park I had to ask another camper what the code was for the restrooms. Fortunately, I very nice gentleman helped us out by making some phone calls and we go the information we needed. I wasn't able to check-in until the day after Thanksgiving and didn't find that experience very pleasant. I don't think that the Auto Skills Shop is the place to handle the RV park. I agree with another comment made that the Navy Lodge could handle this much better as they already handle reservations. I wanted to get the internet for the cost of $12.95 for a week but was unable since no one was in the office on Wednesday, November 23. So had to do without internet for my stay. It wouldn't hurt for the park to also get cable.

Great campground but could use some attention to finer details. The office forgot to give me the code for the bath house (bummer). When I did obtain the code the bathrooms were dirty (10a.m.) and two of the four toilets were broken with one leaking water all over. Breakfast at Mulligans right down the street was great.

We stayed down over the hill in the older section. We have 36 foot fifth wheel and had no problem getting into our assigned site #3. We had a full hook up and everything worked, electrical panel needs to be repaired soon or it will be a problem. The biggest need is for a camp host. Since the "office" is in the Auto Hobby Shop, the area really needs to have someone who can oversee what is happening. It was an overnight stay, so can't really comment on local interests. We would stay here again.
