Requested site facing north so we had the breeze from the Indian River. Sites seemed to have been designed for older rigs with no slides. Our site was narrow but the site next to us was vacant so that helped. There was no room for a picnic table which we didn't have anyway. There were larger sites but we were in a pull through. The people were friendly. There was a 4th of July pot luck there we attended. The view of the Indian River was terrific. Twenty minute drive to the most beautiful un crowded beaches with parking that easily accommodated our truck. For overnight this would be fine. - TailsAwagging

Currently staying here, working on contract, a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Good cable TV, lots of OTA channels, great WiFi, stream anything you want. Staff is attentive but not overbearing, people leave you alone. Lots of stores close by and a little restaurant/bar is close by. I would recommend this place for short or long term. - Doc Naylor

We were at the end of the row with rr tracks less than 100 feet away. They blow the whistle all night. Park was okay otherwise but had lots of permanent residents. - hug448844

The water is often cut off. So if you don't fill your fresh water tank, your out of luck. When they do a water treatment, they often use too much chlorine. One day they did it and I had a full blown asthma attack while taking a shower. Luckily there's a hospital nearby. I confronted the manager and she apologized, but did nothing about it. I ended up using my fresh water tank for showers until the chlorine smell went away (which was about a day or so). The maintenance crew consists of two men well into their 70's. The lawns looks terrible, it has big brown blotchy spots everywhere. Plus tons of ants. The rules that we were given were not enforced. There are a few blind corners, in which I've almost had accidents at. They have dangerous picnic tables (rotted and falling apart).
The residents are pretty nice and helpful, they've mentioned that this park owner isn't very attentive to the park (They've had a few owners). They have said since the new owners have had it, that they've raised the rent, but don't upgrade the park.
The spots are close together, so if you and your neighbor have your windows open, you're going to hear each other's conversations. It's a very quiet place though.
They use to have WiFi for $20/mo, but the person taking care of it said that the park owner no longer wanted to deal with it. So it was removed. The pool is not heated. Their bathrooms aren't very clean. Also there is a gentleman who is always at the public bathroom area. Whenever my wife went to use the bathroom, a man would constantly hit on her. I told the manager about this and she said she would talk to him, but that didn't stop him. The park easily floods. If you don't own a car that is high off the ground, you run a serious chance of your car flooding. I've heard (from the residents) that when the owner comes to visit, she's very short with them and has been known to insult some of them. - Mike Thomas

This is not a 55+ RV park, though the mobile home section of the park is. [Admin Note: Called the park and was told that those under 55 were welcome "for a night or two".] The park grounds are beautiful, but the electric, cable connections, bathrooms and laundry are not maintained and are in need of updating. The water here is HORRIBLE. My trailer's sinks, shower, and dishes are heavily coated with limescale deposits. My sewer pipe was full of iron deposit. The electric breakers constantly blew, the water was shut off often without notice due to leaks on the property and sewer back-ups and leaks were common. The residents are very cliquish, and management does nothing to foster good neighboring. Park rules are discriminately applied and most people ignore them all together, unless their neighbor is breaking a rule, which gets promptly reported to management. Most of the trailers here are older models and the sites are close together. There are no pull-through sites and the newer, bigger rigs have trouble backing into sites. There is no park-wide Wi-Fi; it's only available at the clubhouse, which is closed in summer. No picnic table at the site. The park was quite noisy, dirty, and run-down. - CoachCouple

This is our fifth trip to this park. Very quiet, close to the beaches and shopping in Melbourne. - melvingregory

This park has many full time residents. The grounds are poorly kept and there is no effort at pest control. The clubhouse is dark and moldy, as are the bathrooms, in addition to the many cobwebs and spiders crawling around them. The manager is pleasant enough, but his wife is terribly rude and difficult to deal with. The roads are in disrepair as well. The picnic table at my site was falling apart. Overall, this park is seriously run down and needs new management or a new owner to clean it up. - CoachCouple

Very friendly, laid back older campground. Manager goes out of his way to foster interaction between long term and short term guests. We barely parked and were urged to come for potluck. Also we enjoyed a free cooking lesson and wine tasting, and invitation to play bridge,etc. Grassy pull thru was levelnand wide with concrete patio and drained well during heavy rainstorm. Heading northbound on Route 1 in or out of the park is tricky with the divided highway. Also trains run close by. - nonadonna

The manager tried to make us happy, but barking dogs in front and back of us tend to make us unhappy. The cable didn't work. The facilities were not clean. Trains, planes, and automobiles but we got use to that. Could not get use to barking dogs. The fishing pier across from park and a boat ramp 1 1/2 miles away were the only good things about this park. - kgkaroonie

If you like hearing airplanes, automobiles, and trains, this place is for you. 24/7 the noise never stops. The park is right on US 1, a four lane highway with 24 hours traffic. The railroad track is right behind the park, I mean right outside the park fence, and runs 24/7. We literally were shaken awake in the night by these trains. There is an airport approximately a mile away and these planes fly all day long right over the park. They are people learning to fly. The water is terrible and not drinkable, we had to buy all of our water in spite of the fact we had 2 water filters on our unit. The laundry and club house are dirty. The park is dirty, trash, not mowed, etc. The manager even came around one day and wanted us to pay $45.00 to have our site sprayed for bugs. Can you imagine? But true. The Wi-Fi service is not free, don't be fooled. We would never stay here again or recommend that anyone else does either. - bsnmobs

We own a lot here at the Park. We have a 5th wheel that we use as a destination trailer. We love the area and this park is an awesome option to any other park or resort in the area. Contrary to a statement made by a previous reviewer, this Park is NOT limited to 55+ owners or renters. Do not be misled by that statement. All ages are welcome. - GoldenRam69

Pros: This is a beautiful ocation with swimming pools and beach access on the Atlantic side as well as the Indian River side. Each site is on cement so there are no worries about dirt coming in to your RV. There are plenty of clean swimming pools, hot tubs, restrooms, laundry, showers, tennis courts, etc. There are also lots of activities available (water aerobics, pickle ball, shuffleboard). In spite of the large number of sites, it is very quiet. Most of the residents are permanent or full-season and it is only available to those over 55. The location is not too far from stores and restaurants, but is on the quiet end of the barrier beach. Cons: There is an occasional smell from the nearby septic treatment plant depending on which way the wind is blowing. The price is high, but it is Florida waterfront in prime season. - Cape Cod kayaker

Very nice location and we stay whenever close by. A little pricy for summer rates. We noticed the smell that's been mentioned before, but it went away pretty quick. You need their box to get cable but the antenna worked well enough. Lovely pool right on the river. - Libby

As other reviewers have said this is a very large snowbirds park. Due to our late booking (last October) the only space left was a back-in at the back of the park near the railroad. There was a $50 discount for being near the railroad. Our site was small but adequate for our 36ft trailer plus tow truck.
There are many activities should you choose to join in plus 2 good sized swimming pools. Staff were very pleasant as were our neighbours and folks we met. Shops and beaches all in reasonable distance and very good. Downside is wifi is only available at the office/mailroom but connection is very good there. We took the Comcast package which is a personal modem for $40 PM which worked exceptionally well. We have only rated it 6 due to our site but we do recommend this RV park and advise very early booking as many of the residents return each year. for overnighters there are pull thru sites at the front of the park. - Harris England

Clean park. It's a bit of a large mega park. If you are staying nightly or weekly, you will most likely be put into sites that are like a parking lot. We felt surrounded by RV's and sitting outside was like being squished by them. Lots a seasonals here with really nice places and nice RV sites in the middle, interspersed with mobile homes.
We were in lot 12, a pull-thru, for a week. Glad it was no longer. But on a positive side, excellent location to see sights and a beautiful drive to Vero Beach along the island road. Only five miles to beautiful beaches too. Great waterfront restaurants in town.
Lady at checkout seemed to do just what she had to do. We had to ask about good Sam discount, and if there were any activities, and then if we could get a calendar of them. Lots of activities. Not too many RV resorts around Sebastian so this is probably the one to stay at. Ask to be in middle of sites. On the West side trains go by and they are close to the tracks! - User3092

We stayed for a month and would certainly stay again. The park is huge and is mostly mobile homes and park models but they are well-maintained and the people are very friendly. The streets are all paved and level. Our site was around the little lake and there was a nice breeze every day. The only drawback is the location of the park. It is right next to a main road so there is a lot of traffic noise if you are at the front and there is a train if you are situated at the back. However, the location itself is very good with the beach and restaurants close by. - Sheena123

New owner here since we last stayed 3 years ago. Not much has changed in the park. Still quite a few very old single wide mobile homes are here. FHU 50amp site was fine, getting a 40' rig in and out can be a challenge. Sewer did back up on me when it was time to dump. Park is adding WIFI throughout the park rather than just at the office. Wish they would answer the phone when you call in. You will always get voice mail and wait for a return call. Office is only open from 9-2 weekdays and never on weekends. - Bob & Stephanie

We made reservations in advance stating we had a 40' coach. After 5pm on Friday, there is nobody available from the office until Monday. The emergency phone # didn't work. We arrived and had trouble getting the coach THRU the park--cars were parked on both sides of the drive. There was one spot available and it had been "assigned" to us (all others were filled with old mobile homes and trailers in disrepair--didn't even feel comfortable going in). The one spot would NEVER accomodate a big rig either length or height. Plus there was a bush in front of the pad so we never would have even been able to get IN to the spot. DO NOT stay at this park--they are misleading, unavailable, and unless you have a very small camper, spots are unaccessible. - lvescape

Very old, dated park with many very old, single-wide mobile homes in various states of disrepair. Park is convenient to the beach and shopping of all kinds as well as restaurants. Wi-Fi is only available as a hotspot at the office. There are no showers or rest rooms and the laundry has cold water only. This park is a fairly good value but could use some serious updating. Pool is nice and kept up well. Rates are increasing as of 4/1/13. - Bob & Stephanie

We had a back-in waterfront site that was long enough for our rig, but ended up not being very wide. The electric and water hookups are "shared" between two sites and since we were on the right of the hookups we had to park close enough for our electric and water hose to fit under our rig to the hookups. As a result, this did not allow for as much room as we would have liked for our patio area. Our site was next to a large, beautiful tree which provided welcome shade. The root system from the tree was raised out of the ground and made it bothersome walking and for placing our patio. The sites are sand and our site was not level at all. There was a nice opening between the mangroves for us to put our kayak in the water. Bring bug spray... the minute you walk near the mangrove trees you will get attacked by mosquitoes. Overall we enjoyed our stay with the water for fishing and kayaking and beach access. One odd experience during our stay... we went out to dinner one night, and upon our return our fire ring was gone. Our next door neighbor had a fire going, so we asked if they took our ring. They said they did. They left the next morning and never bothered to return the ring. We thought this was a bit rude. We were told by another camper that this park used to be a state park and since the county took it over it is not kept up quite as well. We would stay here again, however we would be sure our site would be on the left side of the hookup station. - Golfgirl

We spent three nights here and enjoyed our stay, although it was very windy almost the entire time and we just a little bit of a severe thunderstorm that mostly passed to the south of the campground. Our dog, on a leash of course, really enjoyed the very large grassy area in the middle of the campground. We backed our trailer up to an opening in the mangroves and had a lovely view out our large rear window of the Indian River. The back of our trailer was no more than six feet from the water. We saw dolphins swim by, some very close, every day. The staff seemed to stay very busy trimming grass, picking up litter, etc., and were very friendly. We were there from Tuesday until Friday and while the campground was pretty full it was quiet. Fellow campers were polite and friendly. While we did not use the restrooms or showers, my wife did go into one of the older restrooms and said that while it was getting a bit long in the tooth it was very clean. Our picnic table looked old, weathered and stained. We had good Verizon signal and LTE. We recommend this campground. - bfisher003

This park has many waterfront sites and is close to Sebastian Inlet so it fills up fast. We had a site on the water but the mangroves blocked any view. This was our first camping trip in our new travel trailer so we were mainly checking out how everything functioned and learning the ropes. I had been to the park before as a day tripper and enjoyed fishing there, and that seems to be the main recreational activity along with kayaking. We brought our dog who was allowed everywhere in Long Point, but when we went to Sebastian State Park she was only allowed in the parking lot, so no beach, no jetty, no docks, etc. She doesn't do well being alone so we just hung out at camp. Our site was small and the ground was rather uneven, and of course the utilities were on the wrong side of the camper, something we first-timers didn't consider when making reservations. There is no shade and no barriers of any kind between sites so you will get to know your neighbors. Bath house was ok, there were several in the park but we only used the one closest. There is a boat ramp and dock, and a bridge that goes to an island that is nice for a short walk or wade fishing. Some of the larger RV sites have sewer, but most sites do not. If we stayed here again I would try to get a site on open water because the view is amazing. - Daisy Jetstar

A very clean maintained park. All campers backed in at the same distance making the rows look nice. Parking for your car is right beside your camper. RV and car is parked on cement. Lots of nice grass. It is a Air Stream park, but will take other campers. NO shower house. But a nice big club house with restrooms. Some activities. Everything is close by at Melbourne. They do not except mail at the office, but have their own post office, if you know your address/street number. Will stay here again. No picnic tables provided. Sewer connection is under the RV when you back in. No pull throughs. This park is now for the big rigs, as the sites were shorter. Our motor home is 35 foot and had no trouble, but bigger RV's would. Call first to check. - consmith

Older park in quiet area, designed for older travel trailers but accommodates newer RV's. Immaculately clean, manicured and maintained. Good spacing between sites. Sites have separate driveway for tow vehicles placed beside RV. - Scenic Cruiser

We DID NOT stay here. This review is to explain 2 things about this facility. 1. The website shown on RVPR is incorrect. It should be www.lyhairstream.com, and 2. They cater to Airstream trailers. The lady I talked to said they have 2 sites that will accommodate up to 40 foot regular RVs. When I called, they did not have space in those 2 sites. - therealSimpsons

Arrived at our site which we reserved 11 months in advance to find our neighbor had set up their chairs and tables on our site in the shade because their site had no shade. We asked a passing park ranger what we should do. He said he would remove the equipment and take it back to the ranger station because it looked like no one what home on their site - no car, all shades drawn. The ranger loaded the equipment into his golf cart and as he was pulling away a guy explodes out of the camper swearing a blue streak and calling us and the ranger every name in the book. The ranger told us to go back into our rig which we did immediately. The guy continued to argue and threaten the ranger, and the ranger told him numerous times their equipment was on our site and that was not OK. After 10 more minutes of loud arguing the ranger left while with the equipment still sat right next to our site, and the guy goes back in his camper. We think the guy should have been thrown out of the campground.
My wife and I decided we would not stay anywhere in this park in case this guy came after us. We pulled up stakes, left the site, and went to the office to ask for a refund. We were told our money would be refunded but never received it.
After this scary experience and no refund we will not return to this campground.
We've been RVing for 20 years. I don't know what's happening to the RV world, but we have witnessed similar "rage incidents" in the last four months where people go ballistic over small matters in campgrounds. We've had one other incident ourselves and have observed numerous others.
So please folks, stay on your own site, be considerate of others in every way, and relax! - Phaetonman

We stayed 7 nights. The park is isolated from city amenities. It is 15 miles from dining and shops. It was difficult to sit outside with all the bugs. We need a screen room. Fishing was good everywhere, the beach, the inlet, the piers and all over. We always saw people catching fish. It took about 1 hour for someone to fill a 5 gallon bucket with fish.
Lot spacing was nearby with some shade. Site surface was gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Beas
