Camping at Hontoon

Cabin in the woods

Island Getaway

Have you ever camped on an island before? Join us on island time by camping in one of our primitive cabins!

A park ferry is available to transport you across the St. Johns River to your island destination. Unload your belongings and hop in one of our vans and enjoy your trip to the cabins. Each cabin on Hontoon Island is equipped with a ceiling fan, one electrical outlet, bunk beds, and a screened-in porch with tables and chairs. A water faucet, picnic table and grill are available outside the cabins. Primitive tent sites also are available. Enjoy hiking or kayaking by day and roasting s'mores by night! 

  • The camping area is located 0.3 of a mile from the ferry dock, concession and ranger station. The concession has ice, firewood, snacks and souvenirs for sale.
  • Reservations can be made online or by calling 800-326-3521.
