Love this park. It is wooded with large sites. Great WiFi and TV reception. We walked to the pier with beautiful views. Used Passport America with this rate. Friendly staff. Close to Kennedy Space Center. One of the laundry rooms was closed due to renovations. The second laundry was only 2 washers and 2 dryers but a laundry is close by in town. Even without the discount this is a good value and great place to stay. Started to fill up as the weekend approached but believe there are many that stay for the winter. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Heavily shaded park on the Indian River with great views of the Cape Kennedy launch complex. Park was sparsely populated this time of year as the snowbirds have not yet arrived. Rate reflects Passport America price, which is very limited at this park. We were offered a site with a view of the river and watched a launch of a satellite that night. Full hookup at this site with free Wi-Fi. This park also has a pool which is rare for a county park. We would return in the future. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America discount which just began the day we arrived. Nice county park with plenty of shade. Riverside setting is very nice especially when there's a launch at the Space Center across the river. The pool is a nice touch for a county park. We would definitely visit again.

An earlier reviewer commented on two types of sites at this park. We apparently got one in the "low-rent" side of the park as nothing near us is paved. The sites and the roadway are dirt and crushed shells, littered with live oak leaves; shoes must come off before entering the motorhome. The area is nicely shaded and so stays cool during the day. We are next to U.S. Route 1, and road noise at our site is evident even in a closed up unit. The park would be a lot nicer if the staff would just clean up the junk on sites. Out our window, we see abandoned sewer hose supports, an old washer tub, small chunks of concrete, etc. This county park allows for multi-month stays, so its safe to say that many of those here are seasonal folks. The campground is close to the Kennedy Space Center, the Warbirds Museum, Canaveral National Seashore, and the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, so there is something for everyone. The time to be here would be for a rocket launch as the campground is just across the bay from the space center. Traffic is simply nuts here, and it seems worse than in other Florida urban areas. If we were in the area again, I think we'd look elsewhere to stay. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our third winter at Manatee Hammock and it is a great place. $21 a night is based on the monthly rate for a premiere pull-thru site. Because it is a county run park, they do not plan activities. The pier has great fishing and you can see manatee and dolphins. It is also a great place to view space launches. We were lucky to see 3 night ones this trip. It is close to shopping and less than an hour if you are interested in going to Orlando. Sites are large and have shade from palms and oak trees. We will return. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Enjoyed our stay; went out on the pier and tried our hand fishing; the view is one on the best you will find. Site a little hard to get into because of the trees but plenty of room to the next site. We will return again. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects PA rate. Full hook-ups (50 amp) and cable, good Wi-Fi, intermittent Verizon 4G. Very nice employees. This county park seems to be divided into two sections - one area does not have paved roads and seems to have long term residents; the other (where we stayed) had paved roads and nicer sites. On the ocean with views of Kennedy Space Center. If coming through the area, we'd stay here again, but there really isn't much in Titusville.

We have stayed here once before and really enjoyed it both times. They have improved the Wi-Fi so it works really well. There are lots of drive-through spaces as well as back in sites. There is shade which can interfere with satellite reception but there are a number of channels you can get on an antenna. Noseeums were bad this year as were ants but we sprayed and that helped. They have rules and if you do not follow them they will ask you to leave. This is a great place to watch rocket launches. You can see manatee and dolphins in the Indian River. It is a well run county park. Price is based on a monthly rate during peak season. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had stayed here two years prior and were disappointed when we returned. The area in general and the campground specifically were more rundown. Infested with noseeums. Lots of fulltime residents and older folks. Will not return. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice state park with a lovely view of the Indian River. We enjoyed walking out on the pier and watching the sunrise. Overnight site was fine. Slightly unlevel and we had to back into the rear corner of the site in order to reach the utilities. Absolutely no privacy between the sites, but we were lucky all of our neighbors were very friendly. You are parking on sand so we found some readjusting of the stabilizers was necessary. Laundry facilities. Very close to Kennedy Space Center. We would definitely return. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The perfect place to stay for a few nights and visit the Kennedy Space Center. Located right off the Hwy1 you will get a pull-through site with full- hookup. No cable TV though. Wi-Fi was good. Sites are dirt and fairly level. Little privacy but not packed like sardines. The Hwy traffic dies down at night, so it's surprisingly quiet. We didn't use any facilities. Would stay again for one or two nights when the next launch is scheduled at KSC. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lovely County Park. The rains came while there for 2 solid days of rain and wind. Quite a few sites were under water. Front desk knew the weather was coming and gave us a site that was as close to flooded as you can get. NO cable. Nice shade. Right on the Indian River with a long fishing pier. Definitely worth a second visit after they clean up the park from the storm. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice county park. Employees work to keep it attractive. Sites are every which way, but there is a degree of privacy even when the place is brimming with rigs. Big rigs may find navigating difficult due to lots of trees close to the roads. Pool is extremely clean. There is a rooster next door who bellows more than just mornings. We stayed as a P/A member for 3 nights and as full price for 2 weekend nights. The store in the office has prices that will astound you. I bought bulbs for $4 that cost $6 everywhere else. It is nice to be treated so well. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park but LOTS of trees, AKA lots of tree debris. Pool was small for park. Sand sites tight to maneuver. Wi-Fi inside rec hall. Would stay there again if we could select better site. We camped at Manatee Hammock Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park to stay for a day or all winter. The park Wi-Fi is very weak and you will need to go to clubhouse to a slow speed. The park has people that are very nice in the office, but one employee is a bit lazy and will not work with returning long term campers for sites. One lady just retired and she would bend over backwards to help you with a site. We will all miss her. I will come back and hope we can get our site next year.
