Rockets, Dolphins, Turtles, Cruise Ships
Paid $42 for a night on the inlet side so we could watch a rocket launch. It's dry camping with just water hookup. They are very clear that you can only use onboard generators which we heard running most of the night (but just a quiet hum). We stayed on site 5 which is just 1 row away from the water front. It's pretty sloped so it took a bit of maneuvering to get our 42 ft 5th wheel to level.
We had several cruise ships pass by during the day as well as the SpaceX ships used to catch the rocket fairings at sea. Cool!
We saw dolphins playing in the water and several sea turtles.
We met most of our neighbors and they were all super friendly. A large group of neighbors were from Canada and they have been visiting annually for the past 30 or so years. They invited us over for dinner and fed us fresh fish (red drum) they had just caught. We love the RV community!

Park is a great place to enjoy the beach, watch surfers, dolphins play, and walk out onto a pier. No need to pay all those fees at Cocoa Pier.
And on our last night we watched the big cruise ships set to sea.
What a cool place!

Gone Down Hill
We have stayed at Jetty Park Campground for the past 3 years. This year the campground was noticeably dirty. When we arrived at our site there was trash all around the campsite and the electrical box was broken. We notified the office that the campsite needed to be cleaned up but not one person ever showed up to address our concerns. As we walked around other vacant campsites we noticed there was trash everywhere. The restrooms were dirty and never appeared to be cleaned. Overall campground going down hill so we have decided we won't be back.

Bathrooms need attention
Company contracted for cleaning bath houses should be fired! Not once did they clean showers or sweep and mop the floors. One day I had to go to office because not one stall out of the three had any toilet paper!!!

Stay by the inlet on the County park side. Easy access to the beach, pier and sunrise. Breakfast and lunch available and good dinner restaurants close by but can't walk there, need a car or Uber. We pull up camp and drove the RV.

Great little spot
We have stayed here two time now and it has been great. Beware if you get a concrete pad they are small (poured in the 70’s) and you might need a longer water hose. Park has been filled with super nice neighbors. The last visit we arrived after midnight and our two year old was getting sick. The neighbor was nice enough to help me back in so my wife could take care of our little one. The spaces in the 300’s can be trick to back into, but nothing crazy. If you stay on a weekend it’s full and most of the time it’s quite by 11pm. We did notice the sheriff’s office patrolling the area at night on both trips and they were super friendly. Lots of kids running around the area
You can go out the side gate and access Jetty Park with a great playground and watch the ships come and go. You also have access to the beach and the pier. For the money it’s a great little park and the staff was helpful. Park has been clean both of our visits

Beautiful/fun, stay away when busy!
This was our second outing with our new travel trailer and we stayed in the inlet sites (water only). Plenty to see and do in the park . . . up close to passing cruise ships, beach and pier a short walk away.
I think this park would be wonderful mid week when there aren't so many tourists. Out visit coincided with spring break and a Falcon launch. Zero enforcement of day pass holders parking in the rv area. Several folks blocked rv sites so those arriving had trouble or those already on site (like us) felt encroached upon. Poor management of the visitor use. Agency appears more interested in the max profit rather than quality recreation.

Enjoyed Our Time
We only stayed here 2 nights, but could have stayed longer. Lots to do and see. We chose to stay in the west loop away from the beach, because we wanted views of the cruise ships coming in. If you book this area, make sure you have plenty of water hose it’s a long stretch to the hook up. The sites closer to the beach were closer together and didn’t have to use as much water hose. I believe we had our our full 50 feet. Loved the access to the beach. Used the laundry and it all worked as expected. We were planning to stay there as we came back thru the area to watch a rocket launch, but the launch was postponed. We will definitely stay there again.

Fun Family Time
Great campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed the weekend to go to Kennedy Space Center. Our campsite was on the channel so we could see the cruise ships arrive and leave port. We loved the direct access from the campground to the beach, which had soft powdery sand. On our last day we were able to park our RV in the overflow parking by the beach and enjoy the beach a while longer. The kids including the teens loved it. Be aware you may need a 50 foot water hose for some sites. We will be back.

Nice place, great location, great staff...BUT if you leave the campground then come back you have to wait in line to enter Jetty Park! Even though you have a "pass" for the campground area, there is no "thru" lane to bypass the cars that are paying to get in to the park & beach! We were in line for 15 minutes just to get waved through because of our pass! Ridiculous entry system!

Is awesome. Stayed 15-18 June and wow. We weren't expecting such a nice place so close to the beach. Great location, great staff, great facilities!

Fantastic location, Wonderful people, the dreaded TENGO internet which is outdated, outmoded and SHOULD BE BANNED from usage (until, unless) upgraded throughout their system. RV travel planning, and basic communications in the 21st century both depend on good internet service, of which Tengo is whole heartedly inadequate and unreliable.

Love This Campsite
Spacious sites, lots of green space, cool cruise ships and proximity to the Kennedy Space Center. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!

We managed to have a small camping family reunion. The park was nice and well maintained. My ONLY complaint is the free wifi. We were able to access the wifi but with all the others gobbling up the bandwidth, it was useless. We were never able to enjoy anything associated with the internet. The trip was nice and all of the staff were very helpful...

We Loved It Our Boys Too
What a great camp ground. We had a camp location near the fence that was write near a big beautiful playground and a few min walk to the beach! And lucky us we picked a week that there was a scheduled launch! We even extended a night (that's all they had in our site). We stayed Monday through Friday get a day free then added to Saturday check out! We will be back!

We spent two nights with hopes of visiting the Kennedy space center, but we loved the campground so much we stayed for a week. (Stay a week and one night is free!) We preferred the sites closer to the beach are amazing, protected by big trees, rather than the sites closer to the office are wide open. The staff was very professional and friendly. They allow mail service for guests, have a nice camp store, decent laundry and shower facilities. The port hosts numerous cruise ships and we witnessed Space X's rocket launch and remanding right from camp-incredible! The prize is the beach, clean, beautiful, relatively quiet with a lifeguard. We would definitely return again. We don't fish, but that's also available.

Jetty Park has turned out to be one of our favorite sites to camp. They have full hookup sites with sewer and sites with just electricity and water. They also have designated areas for tents. Two great bathroom facilities with shower and laundry room and an on-site store. If you love fishing, you have easy access to a fishing pier. You also have easy access to the beach. Jetty Park is located next to Port Canaveral where cruise ship come and go full of people. If you like watching cruise ships, this is the place to see them.
