Great county park with lots of things to do. The campground is in the rear of the park and secluded from the general public. Long, level back-in full hookup sites on sand based grass. Perfect for big rigs. As others have mentioned, sand tends to get everywhere. But hey, we're camping so we deal with it. Bath and shower rooms could use some updating. Close to grocery stores. Will stay here again. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The park itself is very nice with many walking trails, a dog park, fishing lakes, and more. The campground section isn't necessarily on par with the rest of the park. The layout is funky and some sites have good spacing, at others the sewer connections are practically under the next rig. Some sites are grass, some sand, and others a shell base that is extremely hard to keep out of a rig. TV reception was great. I was able to pick up around 15 channels over the air. The Wi-Fi was great, probably the best Wi-Fi system in any park I have stayed at. My Verizon MiFi and Sprint phone worked well here. Raccoons broke into my cargo bay here. The park rangers, although they were aware of the problem (the raccoons came back several nights), offered no help in stopping this activity, so beware! That being said I would still stay here again if in the area. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground offers three loops at the corner of the large county park which offers paved hiking and bicycle trails, popular disc golf course, dog park, sandy lake beach and ponds. A few are waterfront sites, all with full hook-ups, on grass. Ants can be a nuisance so bring spray. Bathhouses with laundry facilities are OK. Walking distance on sidewalks to Starbucks, fast food, a couple restaurants, major drug chains, and two grocery stores. Good wi-fi and over the air broadcast TV from Orlando. Small ants were the biggest problem around the sites. Bus routes leave from the neighboring East Florida State College to other Melbourne locations. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground now that it has full hookups and the long term campers have been thinned out some. Very well maintained county park. The 180 day maximum stay should be cut in half to discourage living in the park. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

They have upgraded all sites to FHU with 50 amp service. Their parking plan is a little loose, but it gives you some flexibility on which way to face in a lot of spots. All spots are grassed and fairly level. Staff is exceptionally friendly and welcoming! We will stay here again We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice city park with large open areas and plenty of activities. Some sites are very poorly laid out with access to the new sewer ports very long; you will need an extension on some sites. WIFI works well. Some sites are very large, while others are very tight, not all are level. Winter crowd is gone by now, and there are several homeless "tent city" types of sites here for long periods. While there is plenty of police/citizen patrol presence, we had our bikes (which were locked up) stripped while away for a couple of days, so always lock up everything before leaving even just to go shopping. Plenty of shopping nearby from groceries to restaurants and apparel, etc. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great park! We chose to stay here to visit family and do some sightseeing. The park is HUGE, with lots of amenities, and there is a lot to see and do while in the area. The sites have full hookups (30/50 amp), and are very roomy. Our Verizon cell service was great as well. Can't go wrong by staying here. We will definitely return when in the area.

Now, internet has a big part in my reviews, and this park has amazing internet. Best we have seen on the road. Sights are mostly big, but paved, and I am a little bit worried about being stuck in the sand when we pull out as our lot is very sandy. The park is huge, with ponds to swim in, playground for the kids, Frisbee golf, trails, anything you want for a county park. We will definitely come here again, and do our week out of a park in Orlando. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects Brevard County resident prices. Very nice park with FHUs. We would return in the future since the setting is so nice. WiFi worked well for the first week and then we could not connect to the internet at all. Some sites are very large ... large enough to park a big rig sideways and then some sites are very tight to the point that your slide-outs would put you very close to your neighbor if they had them also. Plenty of things to do here and an abundance of restaurants in the area as well as shopping of all kinds. Great place to winter. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Some sites are large, others are small (for a county park). All are on sand/grass and pretty level. The power/sewer on our site was on the wrong side so we had to pull in forward and put the picnic table over the next door sewer connection. They have put down sand to fill in the soft spots, and both light and dark sand track into the camper. The bathrooms are old, but clean. Laundry looked clean. Folks are very friendly and there is lots to do at this county park. There is a huge dog park, used by lots of locals, with a dog rinse station. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in Loop A the first week, some huge sites (actually double). Extended our stay for another week and had to move within the same loop, smaller site. The settling problems as others have mentioned seems to have gone away. Lots of activities to do within the Park. Great area to explore also. Most sites satellite TV worked but do ask to see the site first as there are pine trees. Will return if we are in the area again. There was a hint that the rates might go up.

Quite a county park. Lots to do: Disc golf, horseshoe pits, archery, lake swimming, full equestrian facilities. This place has something for everyone. Now the bad, sites have recently been upgraded with sewer hook ups; the problem is the sites are grass and the construction left the area soft. That said, we saw 3 different rigs needing to be towed out because they got stuck in the soft sand. At this point, county is picking up the tab for the tow, not sure how long that will last. Bathrooms are clean but small and in need of updating. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park rates are scheduled to increase to $21/day...$19/day for 30-day stay. No discounts for local residents or handicapped. Compared to other parks, this park may be pricing its self out of "snow birds'" business which has been their major means of revenue over the years. Several sites have been added, along with sewers increasing the number of lots from about 65 to 125 sites. No reasonable explanation has been given for the rate increase given that MORE sites should increase revenues. IF this park wants to encourage snowbirds to stay there, they need to set rates that are not prohibitive for retirees fixed incomes. Been coming to this park for 14 years, through security issues, bad 30 AMP and extra costs for a "dump wagon". We'll be looking for another winter campground at these rates. Our increase is from $474 to $632 w/11% tax. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

My hubby was working in the Melbourne area so we decided to take the RV there rather than stay in hotels. Since I lean toward state/national parks over RV parks, I was pleased to see the multitude of trees, lakes and open areas, a very natural setting. It was a very hot July in Florida and the a/c was constantly cranking, yet we experienced no power issues whatsoever. The bathrooms were clean but the showers, while hot and had good pressure, definitely need some upgrading! The rubber floors were coming up around the edges, allowing a view of the unsightly flooring underneath. There are only thin curtains on the shower stalls and only one open changing area for 3 showers, does not allow for very much privacy. When we stayed here was no sewer hook-up yet; on our last week here they were beginning to install sewer lines. Great news except that it required them to clear the park, a week before we'd intended to leave. They graciously offered to refund our money and offered us a free week's stay. I will definitely take advantage of that offer should we find ourselves in the Melbourne area in the future. Other than the bathrooms, my only complaint is the fact that there is no separate area for tent campers which when the park is full can become an issue. Otherwise, it's a lovely park and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice Park, large sites on dirt/sand, they apparently have some power issues in high demand periods but it wasn't too hot when we were there and did not have any problems. The power is noted on there map that they give you. Nice showers with good pressure and hot to warm water. As mentioned earlier the roads are being rebuilt. In fact we had to leave by a different exit due to repaving. All in all a nice park for a good price. The only down side was that when it rains hard there are spots that form little lakes but they drain down when the rain stops. Also we were under a tree that dropped a bunch of seed pods that covered the roof after the rain and started to stain the roof. MiFi worked great. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.
