As you drive further into Huguenot Park, you'll come to the FT. GEORGE INLET area next. This part of the park is used quite frequently by WINDSURFERS. Although this little body of water may be shallow around the edges, many people catch fish here, using nets and poles. Camping is not allowed in this area, but parking is! You may park your car and remain at the park for the entire day! If you have four-wheel drive, you may also ride around to the eastern side of the inlet, through the sand, to the Atlantic Ocean side of Huguenot Park.
Once you reach the ATLANTIC OCEAN, you can drive no further! You've made it to the beautiful shores of the Florida coastline. On this side of the park, you may leave the car to enjoy a little rest and relaxation, drive, lay, or walk on the beach, surf the waves, play in the water, build cities in the sand, search for shells, or even do a little fishing. Swimming, however, is allowed AT YOUR OWN RISK! There are NO LIFEGUARDS available. But there are two JSO officers who are always available if you need help and for your safety.
The other high point to this area of Huguenot Park is THE JETTIES! This is where the brackish water of the St. John's River and the salt water of the Atlantic Ocean come together. They are separated by miles of rocks which lead to the channel where the ships come in from and go out to the sea. Many fisherman declare that this is a great place to catch fish!
The St. John's River may be accessed from this side of the park by simply going south on the beach, and crossing the rocks to the other side. You will see the Mayport Naval Base and probably much ship activity since this is the MAIN ENTRANCE through the channel. There are many sights to see and much fun available at BEACHSIDE!
