Camping

Get away from it all and enjoy Florida's natural beauty.

Beachside Camping

Huguenot Memorial Park is a 295-acre horseshoe shaped peninsula surrounded by the Fort George Inlet, the St. Johns River, and the Atlantic Ocean. Spend the night under the stars at one of 70 campsites and wake up early for a romantic stroll as the sun rises over the clear waters. The park has incomparable wildlife watching as one of the Great Florida Birding Trail sites and little explorers will enjoy the fishing and bird watching.

With beaches on one side, and a salt marsh and maritime forests along the other, Little Talbot Island State Park truly showcases Florida’s natural beauty. The quiet relaxing campgrounds feature two bath facilities and each of the 40 campsites has water, electricity, an in-ground fire ring, and a picnic table. Bike or hike five miles of pristine beaches or meander along a wooded nature trail. Bike rentals and canoes are available at the Ranger Station.

For the ultimate family camping experience, head to Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park. This 447-acre natural playground includes more than 20 miles of biking and hiking trails through cool woodlands and access to white sand beaches. The kids will be entertained for hours fishing at the lake, paddle boating, and playing in the nearby children’s splash park. Both campsites and cabin rentals are available and leashed pets are permitted on the beaches.

RV and Cabin Camping
Enjoy the luxurious side of camping at Flamingo Lake RV Resort. Stay in the park's furnished cabins  or relax in the comfort of your motor vehicle at one of the 288 RV sites including water, electricity, cable, sewer, and free wireless internet. Families will enjoy swimming on the lakefront beach. There's a restaurant and general store on site and the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens are located minutes away. The resort also has a mess hall  and outdoor space available - so bring the entire family for a reunion!
