Kathryn Abbey Hanna Campground Jacksonville FL 4-2015

Kathryn Abbey Hanna

A Jacksonville city park. It is a multi use park with a very large campground. The cost of a nights stay with our senior discount came to $31.25. It is a good place to stay for visiting Jacksonville and the area, and being on the beach. I say being on the beach, but from our site it was a one mile drive. The campgound  is about a mile from the check in station.   Because of the narrow roads with tight turns and a lot of  vegetation it is best to unhook your car, if in a motor home and finding your site and the best way to it. Many of the narrow roads are two way and could pose a problem if meeting a large rig coming from the opposite direction.  All the roads are paved.  There are some pull thru sites. The sites are mostly sand. About 290  sites. Many of the sites have vegetation between them.  We had a full hook up site with 50amp electric. The sewer hookup is odd in that it is a side hookup rather then from the top, and you will need a screw in connector. There are cross country bike trails and playground equipment.  We received quit a few over the air TV stations.  It is quite during the week, but very busy on weekends.  The beach is 5 to 6 miles long and uncrowned.  We drove to the beach as it is to far to walk carrying chairs etc. There is a lot of area to walk  a dog.  All this being said it is A GREAT PLACE TO STAY FOR THE BEACH AND  VISITING THE JACKSONVILLE AREA, and at a reasonable price.  Yes we would stay here again. I believe there was a $5. reservation fee
Our site, backed up to the woods, the perimeter sites are better. We were also at the end of a road on a turn.

Looking back into our site

The very odd seer hookup, from the side, you need a screw in tight fitting connection.
