This is a public beach city park that consists of coastal hammock. It is very rare over here in the heavy Atlantic beaches. A part of this park was initially known as the Manhattan Park which was the 1st park of the Afro- Americans. This beach was formed around the start of the 20th century by the Blacks who worked in the Florida East Coast Railway.
The park has quite a lot to offer including-
- Offroad Bike Trails with challenging terrains for the rough bikers.
- Nestled wood campsites for camping.
- The Dolphin Plaza has a perfect view of the surf and the waves.
- The Freshwater Lake is perfect for fishing, kayaking, paddle-boating, and canoeing. The place also has picnic tables and grills.
- There is a visitor center, shuffleboard and volleyball courts.

The park is very nice and the campground is beautiful. One of the very best we have ever stayed at. Definitely will be coming back and recommend to anyone coming to the Jacksonville area. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to help us on many occasions.
Awesome little beach spot! Cheap entrance fees for a day of fun. The beach is clean and the water a little clearer than down in Jax beach. Great grill stations all over the park but come a bit early when there is good weather or you may have to wait hours. Great park for sports games with friends and family. Small water park for the kids. I highly recommend it. You can go kayaking if you dare but I have seen quite a few alligators on my last few visits. A lot of great areas to fish and trails to walk or bike. Just an amazing g weekend place to have fun for little money.
Neat little beach. $5 dollar entry to access parking lot and beach with your vehicle. The place was crowded when we visited. Camping, hiking, and your usual park amenities are available. Stay off the sand dunes that are marked. Otherwise a great place to let the kids burn some energy. Waves were not too rough during our visit. Overall a nice place to relax and find some peace. Parking is close to the beach so not far off a walk. Great!
Tight close clearances does not appear to have been upgraded to handle modern motorhomes. Once in a site it is a nice stay. Departing will be the same challenge with not rubbing trees. I suspect when designed the trees were small. Not now!
The parking was good the beaches were nearby and not crowded. The parking was good. There were a lot of health food or healthy living type of people around.
