1 Park near Bellwood, Florida
Jan 2016 - $36.00
This park is set in a nature environment with mature Florida trees. A perfect fishing pier to see the Cape's Rocket launches. Clean bathrooms and clubhouse. Descent wifi. Now for the problems. The park is beside busy US1 and a BUSY railroad track. We WOULD stay here again IF we could get a site farther from the road (Sites H,L,M,N). If you are too close to the water, you will here the weekend campers party all night. If you are too close to the road you will wake up everyday at 6am and your RV will shake from the trains that pass by all night long... The employees are county workers, so customer service and friendliness is NOT their top priority. We had reservations for 5 months this Winter, but only stayed 1 month due to lack of SLEEP! I will know better next time we stay here. All sites are sandy. - h2ocessna

Located a few miles south of Titusville, Florida on highway 1 and just across the Indian River lagoon from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, this Brevard County campground is nicely situated as a base camp for Space Coast explorations. The familiar giant launch site buildings are clearly visible from the park's shore and pier, just a few steps from the camping area. Launches happen periodically (not while we visited); information is published on the Kennedy Space Center site. We chose this campground as an intermediate stop on our first wintering voyage from the West Coast, conveniently situated between Orlando and points further south (Miami area), and to compare and contrast the Kenndy Space Center with Houston's Johnson Space Center, which we saw earlier in the trip. Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach on the Atlantic are also a short drive away (~25-45 minutes or 22-30 miles respectively). We were a bit naive on January weather in this part of Florida, with some cool and very wet storms encountered during our week (perhaps influenced by El Niño), dropping Oak and Palm branches onto camps and roads. Generally, a picturesque if compact coastal campground with tight spaces and noise if you are too close to the highway or train. Mostly level, sandy dirt driveway surface with OK positioned basic utilities and picnic table. WiFi signal strong with something like 9 hotspots, not too high speed as expected but was able to stream somewhat. Nice dog park, newish fishing pier, and canoes available. Apparently quite a few longer-term residents, including families. Two good sized and well maintained shower/restroom/laundry facilities not counting ADA restrooms, plus pool and rec room. We would consider staying here again if in the area, though more as a way station than a destination per se and being more careful about time of year next time. - dns718

Nice park with a large variety of sites. Some paved, some grass. Nice amount of shade and space between sites. Excellent view of the launch sites (we got to see the SpaceX rocket launch while we were here). Level on the sites can be iffy, site 156 was not at all level.
Wifi was awful, could barely check email. Restrooms were kept clean although the women's showers in one block were missing the temperature regulation (i.e. on & hot or off). There were some long term residents but their sites were neat & tidy. The office people were pleasant to interact with.
They have a fantastic dog park on the river side. Lots of squirrels to entertain the dogs too! Great mix of palm & oak trees, bring your own fire ring. We'll be back next year. - inetelle
