Camping in Jacksonville
Jacksonville is considered part of Florida's first coast. It is the largest land mass city in the United States, but with a small town feel. The people are friendly and there is a lot to see and do. From beautiful beaches to museums to great shopping, Jacksonville has it all. There are a couple of nice campgrounds in Jacksonville where you can relax and get away for a night, weekend, or longer.
Flamingo Lake RV Resort is located on the north side of Jacksonville just off of I-295. Flamingo Lake is a very nice RV resort with many amenities. There are 2 man-made beaches on a nice sized lake, boat rentals, children's activities, onsite restaurant featuring karaoke and delivery, well equipped gym, nice pool, playground, laundry facilities , convenience store, music pavilion, and more. We have stayed there a few times and the staff is friendly and accommodating. They have both paved and non-paved sites and cabins for rent. There's really no reason to leave the RV park, but if you do there is plenty nearby to see and do. The beach, downtown, and shopping are all less than 20 minutes away.
Pecan Park RV Resort is also located on the north side of Jacksonville off of I-95 near Jacksonville International Airport, It is located next to Pecan Park Flea Market, This is a nice park with all spacious paved sites. There is also a very nice pool and laundry facilities. The flea market is within walking distance and includes food vendors. It is also a short 20 minute drive to downtown Jacksonville or the beach and is close to shopping and restaurants. This is a great overnight stop while travelling on I-95 or a nice place to stay and relax for a while.
Some suggestions on things to do in Jacksonville include the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, Riverside Arts Market, MOSH (Museum of Science and History), the Cummer Arts Museum, shopping at St Johns Town Center, and of course visiting the beach. For a unique Jacksonville experience, try the Ice and Sports complex for ice skating or the Anheuser-Busch brewery tour or one of the many micro breweries. There are many delicious restaurants including local cuisine, fresh fish camps, international treats, and more. No matter how long you decide to stay, there is something for everyone to enjoy in Jacksonville.
Until our next adventure, Happy Camping!
