There are two RV parks at NS Mayport. The one used almost exclusively by seasonal patrons (Osprey Cove) is out of the way and back near the Hanna Park gate.

This is about the most popular, Pelican Roost RV Park. It’s out on the north jetties at the mouth of the St Johns River as it enters the Atlantic Ocean. It’s my most favorite RV Park in all of Florida.
We had reservations for the second week in April but the park closed and they cancelled our reservation. Several weeks before they cancelled the reservation they called to tell us about new (2020) security procedures. Anyone entering the installation without a valid CAC is required to stop at Pass & ID and have a background check. I have a retiree CAC but my wife does not.

She has a squeaky clean background so not worried about that. Biggest worry was how long it was going to take and where to park the rig while we wait. Pass & ID doesn’t exactly have RV parking. It was recommended to not get there late in the day or you risk being told to “come back tomorrow”.

Not sure if this is a Mayport thing or if others are experiencing similar procedures at other installations.

We love Pelican Roost and try to stay there every spring on our way out of Florida. Appreciate hearing from anyone who’s been through this new procedure at Mayport so we know what to expect next year.

This RV Park is located on the St. Johns River. About a half mile from the park (on base) is a full service marina where boats from small Jon boats to full size pontoon boats can be rented.

Right across the street, (on base) there is a 27 hole championship golf facility - one of the busiest golf courses in southeast Florida – with a full blown golf shop, snack-bar and full service restaurant.

We had lived in JAX for 23 years when we sold everything and went full time RVing. This RV Park is - sort of - our home park.

There are more than 3000 civilian employees aboard NAS JAX. Many of them are military retirees. It’s a very busy place during shift change hours. The NADEP has 3 shifts. If you’re coming there for the first time, try and wiggle-in between shifts.

The Link below is active and lists all the amenities found at NAS Jacksonville.


When these pictures were taken we were parked very close to the rest rooms and free laundry building.

Our site shows two TV antennas. That’s because the trailer on the other side of us couldn’t find a signal so I loaned them another 50’ of cable and we moved his antenna next to ours.
