Few campgrounds offer the great waterfront sites this one does. They are directly on the water. Our fire ring was literally about 5 feet from the waters edge. The Indian River is absolutely beautiful. The campground is well maintained and the staff was very friendly. The water does have an odor as some reviewers have noted. However, the accessibility to the water and cleanliness of the campground make it worth dealing with that. - joncon

We stayed 4th of July weekend. The park was full. Our spot was nice with a small opening in the bushes to allow access to the water. No shade so bring your own; it is an island with some trees on the edge. We had 50 amp service and water, no sewer. The water is easily the worst I have ever experienced before. It is saturated with sulfur and the smell is very very strong. Since we didn't have sewer I used the showers at the park. They were sandy and dirty, I blame this on the other guests more then the park itself. The bathroom was not clean either, no air in there, it was hot and humid. Taking a shower was really hell. If we go back I will fill our tanks with fresh water first. We lost power one night from a storm, water too as it is a well, and then half the park lost power the next day as well as water for the whole park for a short time.
Each day I walked the dogs and picked up beer cans and trash from other guests that had just left them anywhere. It is a shame, what a beautiful place on the water and people just don't care.
The 4th was great, we watched fireworks from all angles at the waters edge. Other guests were friendly, and it didn't look like to many long term people, there was a camp a few down from us that had signs of a long stay, but still not too bad. Be ready for mosquitoes, ants, and other critters as this is a state park, not a resort. The staff was friendly and happy to help. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. - Chrislorl

This campground has probably the best location possible for enjoying all natural aspects of Florida. You have immediate and close access to the southern Indian River Lagoon, nature trails on Scout Island across a neat wooden bridge over the creek, a sleepy beach just down the road at Sebastian Inlet, and if you bring watercraft, you can navigate deep into the natural Florida back country up the St Sebastian River on the west bank of the Indian River. Waterfront sites are what make this place so great, what's better than pulling your boat up to your site every afternoon? Facilities are average, which is expected at a county park, but as I said before, the location MORE than makes up for that. Stop reading and get on down to Long Point with your significant other and family and enjoy the outdoors! - Clgordon

Pelican's Landing trailer park is expensive for what it has to offer. Although the sites are wide and it is on the intercoastal. It is definitely not a 5 star. WiFi does not work; water pressure is poor; water at times has a terrible swampy smell; and cable TV offered by the park is the bare minimum.
The laundry facility only provides cold water, and the machines are not dependable. There are no camp showers. There is no pool. The noise level from the trains (they run 24/7 and frequently day & night) and garbage pickup (5:30 AM 4 times a week) is quite disturbing.
Management lacks people skills .
Now having said all that we did spend 4 seasons there as campers in our own RV. Almost all of the other campers were and are quite wonderful and we made a lot of great friends.
The camp ground became very expensive and totally unpredictable in their administration and varying policies, so we found another place that better suits our needs. - FB Hannemann

We rented a mobile home "cabin" for 3 nights, and paid for dock tie up for 3 days . The cabins are very well furnished but the water smells awful. That rotten egg smell whenever you use the hot water is very unpleasant, and after taking a shower, you don't feel clean. We did not use the dock tie up because the stormy weather each night made me fearful my boat might get swamped. We had an automobile accident on the third day and left a day early as I wanted to have the repairs made as soon as possible. The back of my SUV was damaged and leaked whenever it rained. I asked for a refund for the third day and for the 3 days I was unable to use the dock tie up. Management said their policy was NO REFUNDS period! So, if you have a problem or an emergency, don't expect any consideration. - robert407

Very well kept park with very poor power. We had site 22 on the water which has a beautiful view of the Indian River Lagoon with islands. We pulled in to the site in our motorhome and had a great view out our windshield.
Now, about the power. Of course it is hot is Florida in September, 90+ every day. This park is not equipped for it. The voltage on our site, even with no neighbors on either side for one day, regularly dipped to 102 volts, and never ran higher than 104 volts during the day with the a/c on. We use 30 amps, and used a 50 amp to 30 amp adaptor because the only outlet is 50 amps. We tried an adaptor provided by the park which provided even worse voltage. We don't know how the voltage is on other sites.
We ran the fridge on propane during the day, and heated the hot water with propane. The low voltage caused our a/c to run poorly, and we were concerned we were damaging it. Many times when the a/c compressor cycled on the power dipped so low the power was interrupted, causing digital clocks to lose power and blink for example. This is totally unacceptable! If you were to visit at a cooler time of year maybe the power is a little better.
The park itself is neat and tidy. The docks are in good shape. The white gravel on the sites is getting thin but still acceptable. Spacing between each site is excellent, and each site has a large concrete patio with cement table and umbrella, along with two Adirondack style chairs - very deluxe!
There are trains that pass fairly close by across route one which runs near this park. We heard 3-4 trains every night, but they did not bother us that much. On our site road noise was not noticeable since we were far from the road.
Sebastian has a number of good restaurants. We especially liked Captain Hiram's where we ate one breakfast and one dinner.
We like this park but will not return due to the very low voltage. - Phaetonman

This is a mobile home park that got hid hard by a hurricane a few years ago. Some permanent residents didn't move back so there are slabs where the homes used to be. It is right on US 1 convenient to everything. The residents here are very friendly and they keep their places up. There are no rest rooms yet. I am staying here during off season so, I did get the off season rate. The streets in the park are nice and wide. I will stay here again on my next trip through. - PattyRVer

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

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

Very nice park and staff. If you like the beach, fishing, & boating you'll be happy here. There is also, hiking/biking trails and an abundance of shore birds. Seasonal you may see pilot whales and dolphin. - GDoug

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 bought a new RV from Lazy Days. We were perked a 2 week stay at any Encore travel park so we chose this one. The lots are barely long enough for a 40' RV with a tow or towed vehicle. We had to park our truck under our RV and was still partly on the street. The width of the lots are 9' with no patio area. When we arrived we needed to have limbs and shrubs trimmed to get backed in far enough to try to make room for the truck. The workers arrived to do the job quickly, but did not remove the debris, rather just piled it on top of the palmettos that they did not cut. We had several power surges with outages. The sewer caps are so far back, that you may need a long sewer hose to reach. Some of the lots, though paved, are caved in which would make it a challenge to put your jacks down, or level if your wheels are in a hole. They had many empty lots but we were not given a choice. We were parked near the side of the interstate and could hear the traffic with our windows shut and the AC running. - campground survey

Very nice and helpful staff. Some what narrow site but not too many campers here, so it wasn't a problem. No cable but antenna picked up a lot.
Set up portable dish easily. Small library and swapped some books. Some permanents that appear to work locally. Well kept. - Libby

Was here for 3 months via Thousand Trails special rate $1499. That was good, the rest not so much. Water was horrible, if it wasn't off to fix bursted pipes. Staff was fine. Seasonal Campers very clickish & not friendly to new campers. Wi-fi worked at clubhouse until last month when they changed providers & then couldn't get it at all. Were not helpful in troubleshooting. Will not return for 3 months for sure. Had to go to Comcast for digital box & pay for $50 service call to connect; and then call FL power & light to create account--very expensive rates. Neighbor kept 2 large dogs tied to railings all day, never walked, pooped in yard and scared people and dogs walking by. Felt horrible for dogs. - D & B Blanks

My site was very narrow. Its good the site next to me was empty. To get out from under my awning I would have been walking on their water hoses and sewer lines. Other sites in the park were much wider, but they were not offered to me. Its the summer in Florida and $40 should buy me a very very nice site. Road noise is a problem when out walking, but OK inside with a/c running. I did not use cable, but got 61 stations on the antenna. The WiFi was the fastest I have ever encountered in any other campground - 10 Mbps. Another first was the special water stands, with very long hoses attached, for washing out your holding tanks- great idea. - Libby

Lovely older CG right along the Indian River. Easy access
of 514, just 4 miles from I-95. Paved streets, many concrete
campsite pads with concrete patios. Some sites a little close,
which is typical of CG's developed in the 70's.
Clean and spotlessly maintained. Very nice pool. Quiet and
peaceful. If you are close to the road, some traffic noise, but
it is offset by the great views of the river.
Decent wifi, weak cable. Try for north facing sites, as
the afternoon sun can be tough.
I think it is the best option in the area. We would certainly
stay there again. - macandphyl

This small-medium size park is located on US 1 with the intra-coastal waterway just across the road. It has a mixed bag of sites and your rating will depend on your rig size and where you are located. Those on the north side are close and best suited for smaller rigs although there were a number in the 35' range while we were there. The sites in the middle of the park are more generously sized. Some have concrete pads and patios but not all. 50a power was stable and electric was included in your monthly rent. Sewer connections were solid, water pressure was around 45#. Recycled water was available to wash your rig and car although we didn't use it because it really smelled "recycled". The recently built salt water swimming pool was heated and very nice. Be
aware there is a railroad track right along the west side of the park and the trains rumble thru frequently. The park has a number of organized activities for the winter residents and we felt welcomed. We enjoyed our monthly stay and would come back again. - Born2Roam

Nice adult campground. Had a lot of rain (3" day before) so sites were a little muddy. Very friendly/helpful staff. Great community room with WiFi (available in park for $) Had 50+ channels on antenna (but a lot in Spanish). Camped here for 4 nights in a Fiver. - Bubblehead651

A family member in the area turned ill, and this was the only location in the area we could get a monthly spot in last minute during the high winter season. We are grateful for that. First.. the good: - Quiet, friendly community - Awesome management - extremely helpful, friendly and attentive - Beautiful and well maintained pool - Lovely lake in the front, very peaceful feeling when arriving - Community organized activities going on all the time - swap meets, potlucks, game night, water aerobics, meals, etc. - Easy access to nearby Malabar Scrub conservation area with 500 acres of hiking - Well kept, and easy to use hook-ups. - While they are advertised as a 55+ park, they are lenient on the age - but still remain adult only keeping kids out. Now.. the less than good: Our cost for our spot greatly influences our expectations, and at $825/mo for the winter rate - this place did not merit the price tag. It is at least $100+ more than any surrounding RV park, and about $300/mo more than what we found to be the 'going rate' in the area. But this was the only place that could take us when we needed it last minute. Here are things that had the price tag been lower, we might not be as critical about: - Wi-Fi is not included. If you want access to the park wide Wi-Fi, you purchase it extra from another resident providing it at $20/mo. - Cable is run to your site, but you have to pay extra for it - it's not included. - The sites are rather close together, all in a row down the street. Beyond the lake in the front, this place is actually kind drab looking. All sites are grass with a concrete patio, and mostly level. Some have shade and a little landscaping. The plus is, they are extra long and you have a lot of wiggle room to position yourself front to back. Plenty of room for your rig, a vehicle and anything else. - Feral animals running around. Our supervised leashed cat was attacked while we were there by a stray cat. - No recycling. Only a single dumpster for the entire park is available. - Laundry center is way too small for the size of the park. The long term residents boasted about how they will take all four washers, so that others can't work their loads in. We would return here if needed, especially in the summer when the price is significantly lower. - Technomadia

Loved my visit!!! Real nice family atmosphere under a canopy of beautiful Live Oak Trees!! Workampers complete the extended family feeling -- since I understand the park has been family-owned for over 30 years (and continually improving). Can't beat the RV Park's location -- right between tropical Sebastian and fun-packed Vero Beach!! Just 5 minutes away from gorgeous, relaxing beaches and Sebastian Inlet!!! Next time we'll bring the boat and stay longer. - Cuddlezz

We recently visited to do a little fishing. I was able to put my Flats boat in at the Wabbasso Causeway (about a mile). We also visited the beach (not much farther). We had visited a few years back and were pleasantly surprised to see the upgrades. The roads have been recently paved. My wife enjoyed riding her bicycle around the park. The pool area had new furniture and we were told that a new brick paver deck is coming (that will be nice). Our site had an asphalt gravel driveway along with a new concrete pad. From what I saw most of the sites are set up like this. Most of the park is covered with an oak hammock so the shade was nice.
The bath & shower facilities were very clean. The staff was very courteous.
We went to Captain Hirams to see some live music (not far).
We had a great trip and will return. - Summertimers

Avoid this park at all costs. The owners are milking it for every penny they can get out of it. The laundry facility is terrible. The grass doesn't get cut too often, and the noseeums can just about carry you away. The laundry facility is terrible and the swimming pool is ice cold. There is a lot of swampy land in the park.
The owners must also have a construction business because they store all their equipment on the premises and it's very noisy at times. - Bobk816
