Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park Offers a Lot

Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, owned and operated by the city of Jacksonville Florida is a 450-acre tract of land nestled up to nearly a mile-and-a-half of ocean front. The beach is famous for shelling. It has great surfing. Fishing for whiting, sharks, trout, redfish, sheepshead and Spanish mackerel would be excellent.

There are also 20 miles of trails that wind through one of the largest pieces of true Coastal Hardwood Hammock left on the Southeastern coast. There is also a 60-acre freshwater lake where speckled perch bite year-round along 10-pound largemouth bass.
Add over 100 species of seasonally indigenous birds, including the white pelican, belted kingfisher and sharp-skinned hawks. Don't forget possums, raccoons, armadillos, squirrels, marsh rabbits and an elusive bobcat or two.

If you're into something longer than a day in the park, there's a campground with 300 spaces for tent and RV camping. All of the sites have water and electric service. While they're not what you'd call "primitive", they do include the natural privacy of the hardwood hammock and palmettos between the various camp sites. The canopy includes hickory, magnolia and southern red cedar.

There's a small campground store which sells camping staples including firewood, ice and food. The campground has several bathrooms with hot showers, several small playgrounds for kids, a laundry room and a facility for pot-luck dinners and other campground get-togethers. The campground and the park have 24-hour security on site.
