A very accessible regional park with full hookups. Power, water and sewer are all excellent. We have been coming here off and on for over ten years and since the utilities upgrades have never stayed any where else. Excellent value for the area, all other parks we have stayed in have been very tight to access. No ground fires are allowed in the park. The rate shown is the weekly rate. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Wickham road is now one of the the main shopping venues for Melbourne, it is about 1/2 mile west of the park entrance.

All sites have FHU, and they are pretty well spaced-out in most areas. Some of the hook-up connections are paired together with the next site, so you'll be lucky if it's on the right side for you. Since you're allowed to park your RV however you'd like, we parked ours horizontally to provide ourselves maximum privacy, and used an extension to reach the power and water. We used a blue boy and walked it 30 feet to our private sewer drain. The shower area in the bathhouse was dismal - there were 3 showers and the dressing area is a common space between them, with a lightweight curtain blocking any view from the entry door. The rest of the park was quite nice and they provide recycling containers next to the garbage. With the exception of the bath house and the hook up pole locations for some sites, I liked the park. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Very convenient location to groceries, shopping, and dining options. If you drive to Hwy A1A along the coast, there are multiple Brevard County parking lots that are free of cost to visit the beach.

Sites are very hard packed sand with full hookups. Many hookups are backward to the site, but you can park in any direction. Many snowbirds who are very friendly. Lots of walking and a great dog park as part of this county park. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We love staying here, especially around Christmas when they have a 1.5-mile long holiday lights display (normally $15 but free for campers). It's quiet and pleasant, there's wildlife, biking and shops nearby. Just a couple of issues: When we were here in September, with the park mostly empty, they put us in a spot prone to flooding and we woke up in an ankle-deep pond one morning. Even worse, we got a dozen nasty fire ant bites as we loaded up to move. So check your site carefully. We camped at Wickham Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
