Rate based on a weekly rate. Park is right on the Banana River. There is a smell, but there's also a smell at Manatee Hammock and Patrick AFB. Must be the area. The park is big. There are fishing piers at the water-side sites, and a large fishing pier for the other campers. They have a nice boat ramp and boat slips, and 2 canoe launches. No sewer or cable. You can see the cruise ships docked at Port Canaveral. Birds, seagulls, pelicans, dolphins, manatees, alligators, turtles, are some of the wildlife we have seen. We will camp here again. There's a lot to do and see in the area including Kennedy Space Center, Port and Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Village and Beach, Titusville all of which are less than a 30 minute drive. - kgkaroonie

This park is now available to retired military, so we decided to try it out for 3 nights. There are sites along the river with a very nice view, but we noticed an odor of stagnant water, so we went a bit farther down the road and parked out in the fields. They do not assign the spots, you drive around and pick your own. There is a large grassy field with hook ups in different areas. We just happened to get one with 50 amps, the ones along the river are 30 amp, and the charge is $20 for the view. We had a nice view from our site and no odor, for $15. There were only about 40 campers here all spread out in a very large area. It was very quiet and we saw 30 manatees around the boat docks. We will definitely stay here again. - Mistymay

We called rather last minute and the owner was very helpful and accommodating, We weren't sure how many days we were spending and actually stayed a week. She was nice enough to give us the weekly rate which was $200.
There is water and electric service 20/30/50 at each site and the whole park is well landscaped and convenient to I-95. It is not a large park, but if you're lucky you could get a spot overlooking the Indian River.
We loved the proximity to the beaches across the river and will definitely return when there's a launch as its right across from Kennedy Space Center. Check the NASA site and you might be lucky enough to be there during a launch. - william cate

Nice shady park, although there is grass, most sites are sandy. We had a nice shady spot with a water view. RV sites have electric, water & sewer
Restrooms/showers , laundry clean and well maintained. WiFi was free but not fantastic
There is a pier on the river and we found this a great place to watch the launch at Cape Canaveral. There is also large fenced dog area.
We paid $12.50 for 2 nights with PA discount and one night full price. I would stay here again if in the area. - Liane63

We enjoyed this peaceful, little campground so much that we added a 4th night to our stay. The campsites are packed sand and are well shaded. The roads in the campground are paved. Our site was full-service which is unusual for a municipal campground. The campground is right on the Indian River. It has a great view, and you can see the tall parts of the Kennedy Space Center across the way. There is a long fishing pier and a boat launch for canoes, kayaks and small john boats. There is a pool. The folks who work here are welcoming and helpful. We will definitely stay here again. - ShoreXplorers

Willow Lakes is a lovely park. It receives top marks for everything. The only negative is the Wifi. We could not access as often as we would have liked.
Quality and appearance of the park was definitely 5 stars. Roads were easy to navigate through. All sites were large. - Miners2

While this is a very nice facility and is well appointed. We were disappointed in that we were twice quoted a Passport America rate of $110/week prior to arriving. Once we had set our plans and arrived at the park the rate became $147/week and the office personnel would not honor the twice quoted previous rate. As a result, we would not return since these are not honorable people. - Bob & Stephanie

This is a park where all sites are owned. Some are just slabs to park on and others may have homes with RV covers. Some owners rent out. Rate was very reasonable. Had a beautiful site overlooking one of the small lakes. There is a restaurant and café on site. Also, has a service center on site. This was very helpful as my a/c wasn't working well. Eagle Service took care of everything by sending someone to diagnose at my site, handled all the extended warranty to have the a/c replaced and helped get a "chill grill" expedited to add on to the new a/c. Couldn't have had better care anywhere and all service was right on time. - IntrepidCampers

It is pretty in the park. It smells like sewage when you first drive in and pockets of the smell throughout the park all the time, the bath houses are not very good. The newest one is on Windsong. The Oak Cove bath house should be torn down and rebuilt. They have a cleaning crew and the cleaning crew works hard but the bathrooms are just OLD. Airboats run at night and nothing lessens the noise they make. Sounded like a helicopter landing on our RV. Not much to do there unless you like Golf A LOT. People are there year round and don't seem to like outsiders too much. Our stay was shorter than we intended. - Likeorlove

We were traveling with Adventure Caravans on a paid tour so I am not certain about the nightly rate.
We were parked in the rally area, a large parking lot with power and water. It was disappointing. However, the rest of the park has privately owned campsites, many with shelters. Some areas of the park have older structures. Some are brand new. From what we were told people coming in are assigned lots randomly, so there is no telling what area you will be in. There is a nice dog park. - Dreaming

We stayed here with 2 grandkids. Great place for kids. Enjoyed the beach and pier. Office staff was friendly for the most part. Forget getting anyone to answer the phone. Had to move 5 times in one week so make your reservations months in advance. Limited 50 amp service that is essential in our 45 foot coach in 100 degree temperature. - cc45

This park is part of the Cape Canaveral Port Auth. It is located within sight of the shipping channel serving the Port. Cruise ships, Casino ships, tugs and container ships can be seen from the campground. Some water only sites are very close to the channel and have an unobstructed view. However, most of those sites slope quite a bit. This area also has a nice playground and picnic area. It is outside of the fenced in campground.
Our site was within the main fenced campground. It was not level front to back. Required 8"+ of leveling blocks for each front wheel. Electric and sewer were on the driver's side and water was 50'+ away on passenger's side. We were fine once setup. Other sites are more level. Some sites have concrete pads.
We were quite surprised how quiet the park and ship traffic was most of the time. We were near the public boat ramp into the channel.
Price is tiered to favor county residents.
We would consider staying here again if we needed to be in this specific area as was the case this time. - B D HOWie

We live just about 10 minutes away from Jetty Park but love to go here as often as we can. The staff is very accommodating and the campground itself is beautiful. All sites are very easy to back in and set up, all have power and 30 amps, and most have sewer as well. The beach speaks for itself, and the fishing pier is a great place to go and either fish, or watch the cruise ships go by. If you can plan your trip around a rocket launch I highly recommend going to Jetty Park to watch it! - Clgordon

Permanent residents have debris outside everywhere, making the entire park look trashy. The roads are so narrow, it is difficult to navigate; however, they have not been made one way. We watched people having to back-up as they met opposing traffic. The store had virtually no product, the entire office looked like it was shutting down. - work no more

Rate was after applying KOA discount, a Hot Deal (stay 5 nts, get 2 additional nts free) and gift card we received for Christmas. During check-in, office staff didn't know how to apply the giftcard to our balance so we had to wait about 15 mins until "the boss" could come from upstairs to show them how to do it. They told us they sold a lot of gift cards during the holidays but didn't know how to apply them! We were given one of the rare pull-thrus near the permanent residents side. Hookups were conveniently placed and site was fairly long. The transient side is mostly back-ins with cement pads or grass. The permanent side which is about 75% of the park (and where our dirt pull-thru was located) is absolutely trashy and depressing. It's basically a crowded trailer park with a lot of trash and personal items like furniture, household items and mulitple vehicles scattered around the sites. Many of the permanent residents allowed their rigs to deteriorate on site. At least one Class C mh was towed out during our stay. Our dirt pull-thru site was right next to the restroom/showers and under huge spanish oaks. Small off leash dog park. Cable was ok with lots of channels. There were 5 wifi repeaters all over the park but none worked consistently so we kept getting dropped and decided to use our own wifi after a couple days. Used shower once, very clean and good water pressure. Men's showers were very busy in the morning and many people drove to take a shower and would park in front of and around our mh because there isn't a designated parking area for the showers. Laundry room was huge with 12 washers and 8 dryers ($2.25 per load, 25 ct to dry). Very tight interior roads and if you have to drive thru the permanent side to get out, you risk hitting cars and golfcarts that are parked on the road. The area around the park is economically depressed but it's close to Cape Canaveral and convenient to the highway. Would never stay here again. - Flippitti

Nice park that is away from busy I-95 with vey level concrete pads and landscaping between spaces. We were escorted to our site and shown all connections and they made sure we were ok before leaving-nice! The pool was sparkling clean. Some permanents in one section, but not trashy and the people were friendly. - ronboett

This location has stayed a very nice stopover for us over the years. They keep up with their maintenance. The pool furniture looked pretty new. WIFI at the clubhouse. Still in the Passport system. - Libby

Very nice accessible park close to I-95. We stayed 1 night while travelling off season in our class B MH - no slides or toad. Timer on shower was a pain, but can be outsmarted. Very nice staff. Cash only for Passport discount. Gate entry gives a bit of extra security. We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

Stayed five days during a holiday weekend. Many snowbirds have left so we had no problem getting in this park, and it was pretty quiet. Since we got the Passport America rate we had to pay cash. We stayed in a premium site in an area which has large, paved, level back-in sites. There is no shade in this area. There are a fair number of permanent RVs but many were closed up for the summer. There are two pools next to the clubhouse, one is a lap pool. A small book exchange and a few exercise machines are in the clubhouse. Laundry is $1.50/load. The park is gated and the staff keep it very clean. We noticed a tennis court, small nature trail, horseshoe pit, pickleball area, several small ponds but since it is not peak season, no one was using these amenities. The wifi worked well for us and cable tv is available. The office staff are friendly and helpful. - mohocamper

Very peaceful, small campground but each campsite was a good size. Beautiful sunsets from the camp's pier. Hosts were very helpful and attentive. Lots to do in the area so did not miss other amenities like swimming pool, gym or games areas. Will stay again when we are next in the area. - Louise King
Feb 2011 - $35.00
Excellent: perfect campground for planning space shuttle launch viewings, very close to Titusville, no deposit required, no check-in or check-out time, very flexible, very friendly staff, customer service is the best, restaurant bar serves excellent foods and drinks, great prices, airboat rides are excellent and fun too. Needs improvement: Hatbill Road into the campground is not paved, super bumpy road, they need to have this road paved, terrible shaking while driving in. The RV sites are all on grass so you will have to find the perfect spot and use blocks to help get perfectly level. No sewer connections but there is a dump station. Has tons of mosquitoes. - univmd

What a great place. We love the peace and quiet of being on the river without all the city/traffic noises. Air boats are right in the area, but the sound didn't bother us. There is a restaurant/bar & grill on the premises with great food. Management couldn't have been better. Top notch people. Huge area for animals/kids to play. If you are looking for "resort" with all the fancy stuff you never use, this isn't the place. If you want nature, solitude and beauty, you'll love it here. We will definitely be back. Would have given it a 10 if they had septic. - palmersfour
