Rate paid is FL senior rate. Overall this park is in a great location, especially so for fishing and other water activities. The CG is an older one with sites tending to be on the small side and most have some grade to them with 30 amp service and water. But there are a few that will work for larger rigs. Water hookup may require extra hoses. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were both good. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Best bet for an adult beverage is the New England Eatery appx. 8 miles north of the inlet on A1A. Good food and daily specials, a great place for seafood. The cod fish n chips were the best we have had in a long time.

Nice park right on the inlet. Sites near the water tend to be smaller and the access road to the boat ramp runs between your site and the water. It’s right at the back of your site so you get to hear the trucks pulling their boats in the AM. The second row was better IMHO you could see the water the site were larger and much less road noise. The back row had large sites but no view of the water. Clean bathrooms friendly people. Power was good. All the roads are paved, sites are gravel. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campground was nice and bathrooms were clean. We gave this park a "7" because some of the facilities (swimming area, wifi at store) were on the other side of the channel. You have to go over a highway bridge to get to them so if you have little kids you have to drive. You can stay on the same side of the channel and walk to the ocean (10 minutes) and have superb beachcombing without crossing the highway. Very nice spot and I would return if through area again.

The Park is beautiful and access to the water is fabulous BUT there are so very big draw backs everyone should be aware of. We have camped here three times now over the past 3 years, in November and December and January always hoping things would improve. But they have not. The smallest problem is that they advertise that they have washers and dryers but only two washers are in working condition for the entire campground. We have been assured that the company knows they are broken and in over 5 years have never fixed them. A much bigger problems are the bugs and the electric system. The noseeums are impossible and if you are in a motor home or trailer, the electricity is dangerous. We have a monitoring system on our coach and it cuts off when the electricity gets dangerously low for appliances including AC. This happens constantly so using a microwave or AC is pretty seriously impossible. Most folks have no idea they are damaging their equipment since they have no sensor. There is no notice of such low voltage throughout the park on any website including Reserve America. There is a small notice at the campground check in desk which it is easy to miss. Buyer beware. We won't be returning. With the bugs and limited AC it is just not fun. You can't stay on the ocean front 24/7 which is "usually" bug free. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

We really like this campground however, the low voltage problem forced us to leave on our last visit there. There are a few (very few) sites with 50 amp service. On our first visit we were lucky enough to get one of these, no problems. On our last visit there were tents set up in the 50 amp sites that required minimal electric, just doesn't make sense! Thirty amp would have been fine, but the low voltage (104 volts) caused our EMS to shut power down to the coach, exactly what it is supposed to do. The management and rangers were very helpful and let us try the only other available site which also had low voltage forcing us to leave the park and find a site for the night just up the road. If you don't need much electric, this park will be fine, it's a great location. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice sea-side park. Heaven for boaters and fishermen. Fluctuating electric power is a major issue. We was struggling running a single AC unit, and when we connected our surge protector we got no power whatsoever. Bring supplies as shops are not close by, and also bring lots of insect repellent - you will need it. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite Florida campgrounds. Although you have no ocean view, you are a 5 minute walk to the ocean and a beautiful, large beach, with no crowds. I love the ocean here because at certain times of the day the waves are big. I love to swim in large waves. My wife likes calm waters, and she can swim at other times of the day when the water is calm. I have been here in every month between August and November, and the water has always been warm. When I was here in October, 2012, I was swimming and 2 manatees swam to within 20 feet of me...very cool! The campground itself is clean and quiet. Try to get any of the sites nearest the inlet, and you will have a marvelous view. Any site is good, with enough trees for shade. In the late summer months you will spend much of the day inside with the air running, as it is hot, even with the breeze. The no-see-ums are numerous here. They do not affect me at all, but my wife always goes home with numerous bites. If you attract biting insects, you will want to stay indoors at dawn and dusk, as no repellant will help. If you like to fish, this is the place. There is not only a jetty, but also a bridge where dozens of fishermen hang with both rods and nets. If you have small children, there is a great beach on the other side of the inlet with very calm, shallow waters. There is an entrance fee, but if you show your camping pass, they will let you in free. The fishing museum is interesting. Do not plan on shopping, as the nearest stores are many miles away. Reservations online are hard to come by in the winter, but in the fall I had no problem ever getting a site. We recommend this campground for swimming, tanning on the beach, walking, hiking and fishing. Just be prepared to be lunch, if you are susceptible to biting insects, and don't want to stay indoors the whole time. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

Another great Florida State Park. Sites are a packed sand, easy to level your rig. Not many features but has LOCATION, LOCATION! Surf, big variety of birds and dolphins are fun to watch. Great sunsets. If you are a fisherman, you are in heaven on earth. Some sites are bigger and more private than others. Not much shade but usually has a breeze. No-see-ums in December. Not sure about other months. Nearest big grocery (Publix) is about 12 miles. Not many sites so hard to get reservation. Forget about "walk-in."

This is a nice State Park. If you like to fish, this is a great place. They were catching a lot of flounder while we were there. The sites are small, but okay. The no-see-ums were bad, but bug spray kept them under control. The Rangers were very nice. One of the bath houses was having drainage problems while were there and it was closed. Luckily, there was another bathhouse not too far down the road that was usable. We would return to this campground. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park for fishermen. It is clean and well managed and has a very nice fishing museum. That being said, the sites need leveling, and when the breeze dies, the no-see-ums are a real nuisance. The waterside sites lack privacy and are very narrow. There are fishermen everywhere, but you cannot get to the north jetty, bait and tackle, nature trail, surfing areas, and swimming if you do not have a car, since walking the high bridge is not allowed. That's half the park. It is a long way to shopping and restaurants, but the ride is interesting. This park would get 10 if access was enhanced and it had sewer hook ups. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

Out of the way campground which caters to lots and lots of fishermen, since this is the premier fishing location in Florida. The site was dirt, large and shady but not easy to level the RV. Not very close to any major shopping areas. The town of Wabasso which had grocery and drugstores was 15 miles away. There is an Italian Restaurant north of the campground - Rosetti's - which is excellent. Dogs are allowed but cannot go on any of the beaches, as in all Florida state parks. The restrooms and showers very clean and spacious. Great paved biking/walking trail on Hwy. A1A out of the campground. Would stay here again. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Motorhome.

This is awesome! Not exactly "ocean front," it is actually situated on the inlet. The park is clean, the restrooms and showers are clean and well kept. They even have washers and dryers!! There are lots of TV stations available on the antenna, cable is not necessary. Great fishing within a few yards of the campground and it's less than a mile to the pier and the boat launch!! No sewer hook-ups, but there is a dump station. There was no WiFi that we could get on to??? The sites closest to the water are not as big as others in the camp, and I would not recommend them to anyone with rigs over 25 feet! We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We found this park a wonderful experience and highly recommend it. 1st site too small for our 40' 5th wheel but the park attendants were great in putting us in a different site. Great views of the water from several sites. Cafe within 5 minutes going north on a1a, good meal and reasonable. Sweet Tomatoes pizzeria in west Melbourne also worth a visit. UDT museum and Mel Fishers museums great stops nearby. We camped at Sebastian Inlet State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good park if you like to fish or bike ride. The rangers and host are great. Has a couple out standing hosts who's job was keeping the restrooms and showers clean. They seemed to be on them day and night. Most parks rest rooms are a mess on the weekends but not here. Also met a man that I had met at another park, who was always working and very helpful. Check in was very friendly and easy. The park is in better shape than the last time we were here. They do have bands and such on some weekends at the shelter next to the boat ramp. They do have a play ground and the park is patrolled often. For the not so good. If it is warm and the wind isn't not blowing, have bug spray as the No See Ums are bad here part of the year. T he snack shop is still closed on the north side of the inlet. You will have to level on some sites but not bad. Front to back is worse than side to side as a few 2 X 8`s will take care of left to right. Trailers should not have any trouble, just using the tongue jack or fifth wheel jack front to back. It is about 12 miles north to a full service Publix for food supplies. Wal-Mart is about 18 miles away on the mainland. The sixteen dollar rate is for 65 and older Florida resident.

Cost is with the Florida Senior discount. Beautiful park. Clean restrooms. We were in site 36 which is in the back and very private. Across from the bathhouse. Great location for birding and fishing. Beach is about 1/2 mile from the campground. Large park with the bridge across the inlet dividing it. Good swimming area at the lagoon for children. The bugs were bad but that is to be expected in this type of environment. Need bug spray to sit outside in the evening. This is the "real" Florida.
