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.

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.

We stayed in the park in January, 2014 for two weeks. Park is kept in good condition. The check-in staff is very friendly and helpful. We have stayed here for the past several years and have always enjoyed the stay. Biggest problems are that the upper sites are far from level and Verizon 4G internet service is marginal. We were in the upgraded lower portion of the park and found it to be great. Several of those sites are pull-thru and closer to level. They are gravel, but in good shape. The base is convenient to our reason to be in Jacksonville.

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.

We have enjoyed staying at the Jacksonville RV Campground - having done so many times over the past 5 years of full-time RVing. We only stay from a few days to a week at one time. My husband is a DOD Retiree with the US Air Force, as his spouse I am a retired Realtor. JAX RV Park has always accepted us even though the Military Campground Directory said (at one time) "no DOD", now it states "Jacksonville DOD Retired". Just to clarify in our own minds; I called JAX MWR in late March and they very politely told me, "Yes, we do accept DOD Retirees from other branches - your husband is welcome to come stay". Then she asked me if I was also a DOD Retiree...I told her "no". She explained that the latest change of rules offer RV sites to DOD Retirees but if the spouse or significant other is not DOD Retired or Active Duty then they are NOT permitted. I laughed thinking she was kidding, but she assured me that - that is now the rule. She also said many of their regular RVers are very unhappy after being told that the only way they can stay is by leaving their "non-DOD Retiree Spouse or Significant Other" at the curb or at best; at home (if you have one). She agreed that it's a very unfair reg. We just wanted to alert our fellow RVers of this situation before they drive on base only to be rejected because your spouse is not allowed to stay with them. And if you want to get it changed spread the word and become a squeaky wheel.

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.

Nice campground and good location. Reservation process was quick and friendly. We also called a couple of hours before arriving and given our campsite on the phone. Check-in was very quick. Staff at MWR/Campground check-in were very friendly, helpful, and efficient. (Good job ladies!) Campsite was clean and access was easy. Sites were plenty long for our 40 ft 5th wheel and parking for our 22 ft pickup. Shower house was very clean. Did not use laundry. Our vehicle sticker had expired 12/2012 and due to only Army and USAF facilities locally had been unable to renew the sticker. Security here does not require sticker for retirees, only active and permanent party. Retirees only need ID card to access.

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.
