Pecan Park RV Resort is located north of Jacksonville just west of I-95, exit 366 (Pecan Park Road). It’s the first RV Park on I-95 south of the Georgia-Florida border.
They cater mostly to large RV’s passing thru the area. They have 183 level concrete pull-through sites. All sites have full hookup including water, electricity, cable, sewer, and free wi-fi.
Their facilities are clean and well maintained. They have a small store, laundry facilities, a pool with a sun deck and a club house with full kitchen and barbeque grills. The campground is located next to the Pecan Park Flea & Farmer’s Market, North Florida’s largest flea market attraction (Open Sat & Sun from 8AM to 5PM). A few minutes away is Jacksonville Municipal Stadium (home of the NFL’s Jaguars), Jacksonville Zoo, Downtown Jacksonville and the University of Florida. World renowned championship golf courses are nearby as well as an Anheuser-Busch brewery.
Rates are reasonable, about $40 a night. They honor Good Sam, FMCA, AAA, CAA & AARP members too so you can get a discount. We’ve stayed here several times over the past few years and have never had a bad experience.
Pecan Park RV Resort makes a good overnight stopover or a base to Visit Jacksonville and the nearby attractions.
Talked to their office yesterday and was told they had a site for us for tonight and tomorrow night. Got an email confirmation this morning. Called around noon to let them know we were on our way and would be there late this afternoon. After 3 confirmations from them yesterday and today, when we arrived they said they gave our spot to someone else and they didn’t have a spot for us. I ask if she was seriously telling me we didn’t have a place to camp tonight after getting an email this morning AND talking to me today. All she said was “I’m sorry”. Well’ ‘sorry’ doesn’t help when we’re left w/o a place to stay tonight!
I’m presently staying in this park. It is heading south fast! They don’t keep up with anything, poor management, wi-fi is terrible, and the rates have increased. Noise from the planes and the flea market are quite bad. A lot of the sites are occupied by the most transient looking people you’ll ever see. It’s becoming another rundown pseudo-RV Resort.
