"Hanna Park Campground "
Part of what is now Hanna Park was formerly Manhattan Beach, Florida's first beach community for African Americans during the period of segregation in the United States. around 1900s by blacks working on the Florida East Coast Railway. At its height the beach included amenities such as picnic pavilions, cottages, and an amusement park. It flourished until around 1940, when it was superseded as a day-trip destination by the larger American Beach in nearby Amelia Island.
In 1967, 5 acres of land for the park was donated by Winthrop Bancroft, who required that the land be named for Kathryn Abbey Hanna (November 8, 1895 – 1967, a Chicago-born educator and author who had settled in Florida and served on the board of Parks and Historical Places.
Following the Jacksonville Consolidation, the area became part of Jacksonville. The city purchased the surrounding property in the 1970s during the administration of Mayor Hans Tanzler, expanding the park. The first general purpose trail was constructed by Michael Long in 1987 as his Eagle Scout service project. Most of the land has been left in its natural, wooded state. Boardwalks were constructed over the dunes to protect vegetation.

“A Gem !!”
We camp here 2-3times a year. Yes there are a lot of sites (like 300) but there is ample vegetation to help make it seem like ya all alone. Yes there a few inconsiderate boobs who camp there but there is also ample camp hosts to keep things in control. They remodeled the baths. Huge mistake. I have more room in our camper to shower than these postage stamps. Always be sure and read the description on the site you chose and deduct 10 feet. Many sites are much smaller. than they are described to be
I've watched many a 30-40 ft units try to squeeze Into a site that was supposed to be large enough but was not. Pay attention to. Notes on slide out s as well. I've seen many units who could not open their slides or their awnings. The beach is awesome and is hard enough to ride your bikes on at low tide
