An absolute must stay. The family decided to make a last minute trip to visit family in Jacksonville and we were very fortunate to get a water front site. This RV site is a treasure and reasonably priced is an understatement. The staff are extremely friendly and professional making our stay that more enjoyable. Definitely will recommend to all our military friends and family, as well as making a favorite. Truly amazing experience.

We have stayed here a couple of times before this and still think this is one of the best RV campgrounds in the entire military. The location is great. If you can get it, it is well worth the $2 extra a night to be on the front row right on the water. We made late plans and had a back row site that was still great. Sites are level, full hook ups and a short walk to the clubhouse/office and laundry. The laundry is free and facility has plenty of room with 4 washers and dryers. As Tricare Standard patients, we had no problems getting free pharmacy refills and a free flu shot. Wonderful place and a very friendly staff. 200 yards away from the newest/best gym and swimming facility in the military. We can not wait to go back.

Fantastic! Superb management and great folks working the office and grounds. Park no longer has the gestapo surveillance attitude from 4 or 5 years ago yet the grounds are spotless and the park calm and peaceful. The location and facilities are 1st class.

Needing new management. This place has gone down hill in a hurry since new management took over. Stayed there for two weeks March of 2014. Had a very unruly homeless Vet stay next door at the tent facility who fought on two evenings with his sponsor who lived in town. This homeless Vet slept in his car and when it was cold he slept in the laundry room. Had a dependent take his dog during lunch hour, without a leash poop in full view of all the parked RV's and never picked up the dog's poop. A filthy place to stay as this person took his dog in a park area where all the campers sat and watched the scenery of ships going by. Appears this dependent has done this on numerous occasions since he cussed like a drunken sailor when approached to take care of his dog's poop. Pelican Roost has gone down hill and management needs to "rein in the stirrups" and monitor the park area and tent area much closer of the undesirable tenants and visitors to the park across the street.

ABSOLUTELY stay here if you pass through the Jacksonville area. Campground was really full but we had a nice long level pad to sit on. Facilities and "lodge" were perfect, nice large laundry room looked brand new and the price was free to wash and dry! With a large capacity washer we were able to wash a few blankets.

This was our third stay at Pelican Roost. Twice in 2013 and once so far this year. It is a great place. There was a little construction on the main base road, but not a problem for RVs. The Commissary and PX/BX is located off post and not far away, however, it is not clearly marked from the street. Every time we go there, we missed it and had to U-turn back to it. There is a small shoppette and a gas station on post. We did not need fuel I our RV, so I can not tell if it was good for an RV. There use to be a Pizza Hut on base and it was co-located with a bar. The Pizza Hut is now gone, but the bar remains. This place has a lot going for it with a great view of the bay and the Navy's private beach only a short walk away. We are pretty independent and do not require a lot of staff support. However, they have always been great, pleasant, and informative. There is WIFI and computers in the office, free ice and coffee, free laundry, and nice showers.

Most of the wonderful things that are said about this park are true. We’ve stayed here three times and plan to go back, because there is so much to do. Just keep in mind that this park is within a very active military installation. There can be aircraft noise, sirens and etc. anytime day or night. The park has lots of rules and it seems they have lots of people to come out and tell you about the rules. I like good order but this place takes it a little above and beyond. Also, during all three of our stays here there has been a sewer smell that covers the whole area, usually starts soon after a ship comes in. As I said, we will be back just the same.

This is one of favorite stops when we visit Florida for the winter. We always make reservations and this is a must if you want to stay here during the spring time when everyone is moving north after their winter stay. If you want to stay on the front row to have a better view of the ships, reservation is definitely required. Wi-Fi did not exist where we were parked even though a worker told me the antenna 40-feet away was for Wi-Fi. I mentioned it to the staff but didn’t get any interest or help to check it out. Cable TV is provided. We used the gym and it was definitely one of the best equipped and recently renovated. Commissary and NEX are off base but well stocked. No refund if you decide to leave early. We have stayed here three times and definitely will return.

Top of the line park!!! Well maintained, clean, great facilities and a friendly, helpful staff. We loved watching the ships come and go. Bonus was finding cable tv and free laundry. Excellent clubhouse with pancake breakfast, ice cream social, entertainment and more. No question, the award they received from S.M.A.R.T is well justified.

G.G. left this review using the Directory software: - What a find! I agree with the reviewer who said, "don't come to this park" because I want it all for myself. We were able to get in for three days and then move to overflow for one night before moving to a waterfront site for three more nights. Power and hookups are very good and stable. The park is clean and well managed with very helpful staff. Strict dog rules which was nice to see for a change. No long term residents who acted like they owned the place while trashing it up too. This is an excellent park in spite of the somewhat busy traffic getting to it across Jacksonville. We loved it and will definitely return.

Pelican Roost is by far our favorite campground! The location is great and the staff are friendly and helpful. They have a really nice clubhouse with a full kitchen (and free ice) for campers use and lots of social gatherings to meet and greet fellow campers. The cable is great, lots of channels, and the free Wi-Fi is good throughout the park with the exception (we have heard) of the middle row. The laundry room is clean plenty of washers/dryers and are free. We have stayed in both the front and back rows, both are great, but the front row view is exceptional! We stay here as often as we can!

Once again we are at our favorite military campground as we begin our winter journey. Nice new storm door on the screened porch compared to the wooden screen door that has been there from day one. Kathy is doing upgrades as the budget permits and she has plans for more. I have to agree with the previous poster about Safe Harbor Seafood; it is the best seafood we find as we travel in the southeast (better than some Key West seafood we have eaten) and it is under new ownership and better than ever. The weather has been extremely cold here during our stay and the electric service is super for our 3 heat pumps. It did get so cold here we had to use our hydro hot overnight and this is not typically Florida. As usual the ships coming and going and the dolphins playing are always a sight that we never tire of.

This was our fifth time staying here. Was in the back row, end site by the tent camping area this trip. While the front row has great unobstructed views of the river and passing ships this site was very private being against the trees yet still afforded a nice view of the river and all the activity. The Naval Station main exchange and commissary are a short drive out the gate and there is a small exchange on the station a short walk away. LP is available from outdoor rec (yes you can drive 40 ft Class A right up to the fill station) and air (120+ psi) is available from the auto repair shop. Be sure to check out Safe Harbor Seafood in Mayport Village, right outside Gate 5, for a fantastic seafood lunch! Also the Beach Diner in Atlantic Beach has a great breakfast menu. Can't wait for our sixth stay here.

We arrived with reservations and checked in with Kathy. She was wonderful, we were able to stay an extra night and she took the time to show me where the laundry was, explain the cable (lots of channels), clubhouse etc. The WiFi worked some - good enough for us. The laundry facilities were GREAT, clean and free! Nice concrete pads made leveling the RV easy. Great views of the ships coming and going, nice sand beach, close to Jacksonville and other sights to see. A very clean campground, we enjoyed out stay.

Needed our Pelican Roost fix so came here before going home. Was surprised to see how full the campground is already for this early in the season. The new fitness center had their grand opening yesterday so all you guys and gals who workout when here are probably going to love it. The updated TV cable system is in operation and there are about 70 channels to choose from. We called one day ahead to see if we could get in and got site 40 and it has a perfect view of the athletic fields and enjoy watching the little ones practicing soccer. Also not quite as windy back here so just may request a back row when we make a reservation in the future. As usual all is neat and clean and still is our #1 military campground to go to as it has so much to offer in the area and the view is unmatched by any other military campground we have been to. We miss Janet and Jorge who hosted last year as they kept in touch with folks even after they arrived and got settled. No host has touched base with us yet but Kathy and Woody are always the best welcoming committee you could ask for.

Needed our Pelican Roost fix so came here before going home. Was surprised to see how full the campground is already for this early in the season. The new fitness center had their grand opening yesterday so all you guys and gals who workout when here are probably going to love it. The updated TV cable system is in operation and there are about 70 channels to choose from. We called one day ahead to see if we could get in and got site 40 and it has a perfect view of the athletic fields and enjoy watching the little ones practicing soccer. Also not quite as windy back here so just may request a back row when we make a reservation in the future. As usual all is neat and clean and still is our #1 military campground to go to as it has so much to offer in the area and the view is unmatched by any other military campground we have been to. We miss Janet and Jorge who hosted last year as they kept in touch with folks even after they arrived and got settled. No host has touched base with us yet but Kathy and Woody are always the best welcoming committee you could ask for.

All 5's what else can you say. By far the best FamCamp we visited this summer. Imagine sitting on a perfectly level pad, watching huge container ships, cruise ships, and USN cruisers and destroyers passing within shouting distance. Fishing off the rocks, basking in the sand at the beach. If there is a downside, it's that the Exchange and Commissary are off base, small and we found no bargains. WalMart was less expensive.

First time camping at a military park and a most enjoyable experience. The management could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Very clean.

Little wary at first glance because of previous reviews. What a wonderful experience we had. Staff, facilities, location were all superb. Definitely will return.
