Very nice park
Always enjoy our stay here, beach, fishing, cruise ships, Everything is great except the internet needs a major upgrade, seriously the speed reminds me of dialup and the get about 50+ people on it, for the price they charge here it's time to get with the times.
Pleasure at the Port
We have stayed at this park several times and have enjoyed it immensley. It is a port owned park and is well taken care of.
You can sit on the canal and watch the cruise ships come in and out of port an wish you were on one of them. They are so close to you that feel like you could reach out and touch them. It's always fun to sit and wave and holler "Bon Voyage"
The fishing pier is great. No fishing license required. My husband caught a guitar fish and he and my brother have caught Mango Snapper and other salt water fish but never a Grouper or Flounder although some people have. It's a great place to watch the Dolphins follow the ships out, find Sea Turtles in the jetty, watch Manatees and Sting rays as they swim around.You can also watch a nuclear powered submarine come in and out as it's base is right across from the fishing pier. We have also seen Army boats come in and out. Last
May there was a Navy Hospital ship in port. There is no lack of things to watch. We saw 2 rocket launches from Cape Canaveral while we were ther. great to have a front row seat to that.
The beach is private, clean, and never crowded. It is only a short walk from campground.
There is a camp store with limited supplies as most ccamp stores are. There is also a gift store down by the beach and an observation deck.
The park offers full hook ups with 30 & 50 amp but you have to tell them what amp you need. They also have little cottages they rent, one room, bath and small refrigerator, no stove.
There are plenty of great seafod resturants in Cocoa that are very good. The Sunset Grill about 5 miles away on the Banana River and one just down the road from park. In Titusville ther is a fabulous resturant called Dixie Crossroads. A little bit of a drive but worth it.
This is a great park with Lots to do for everyone. I highly recommend it. They take reservations 1 year out but no long term stays.
A overall good stay
We stayed at Jetty Park for three days. When we arrived we only had a single night booked and hoped to stay longer, as we wanted to explore Cape Canaveral more. Unfortunately our spot was only available for a single night, but they had another spot on the other side of the campground for two days to complete our visit.
The spaces only had 30 AMP power, but sewer and water. There was Tengo WiFi Internet, but I have learnt my lesson never to pay for Tengo again. The campground was quiet except for the occasional cruise ship; one left at 10:30 PM and sounded like a dance party.
The spaces were larger, but awkward. Our second space had a huge depression, if there had been a rainstorm it would have made our space pond-front.
My complaints for the campground are on two fronts. The first is cost, $52 a night is about $15 too much. I think the nightly rate would have been more, but the office person didn't seem to know how to work the computer well. The second complaint is the odd "booked" spaces. I can't imagined someone specifically wanted our space, but when you make reservations they book that space for the stay. They have to shuffle you around when there is limited space, they spaces should be allocated first-come-first-serve in my opinion.
Would I recommend this park? Yes, it is OK. Would we come back? Sure.
Informational: We travel in a 36' Class A RV.
Very enjoyable stay!
We absolutely loved our stay at this park.. there's a variety of sites that should meet just about every need.
Not only is the location just fantastic (right on the beach, next to the cruise terminal). The attention to details here is a class act - fire extinguishers placed throughout, variety of sites with amenities (rustic to full hook-ups), nice sized sites, free popcorn in the lobby, friendly staff, clean laundry facilities, easy guess passes and likely the most well designed dump station ever.
We enjoyed the easy walk to the beach and the jetty pier, and watching ships come and go from the inlet.
We were given site #134, which was huge. Walking around, there was such a variety of sites - and the whole park had a nice neighborhood feel to it.
On the negative side, we could not get their WiFi to work at all during our stay - but thankfully we had good Verizon and AT&T signal. Also, their website could seriously use some improvement - such as posting of rates, rules and expectations.
We would definitely not hesitate to return in the future, and wish we could stay longer.
Jetty Park Campground
Nice playground, clean bathrooms. The staff was rude. Nothing on website about campfires but no campfires allowed at sites. We had site 81 next to office. The staff were screaming at each other at 7:00am when they opened the office and smoking outside right next to our site! Thanks asthma! The sites are very close to each other and no privacy between sites. The website claims pet friendly, but the staff says your pet can't leave your site. Loud music can be heard from surrounding businesses. We will not be returning, ever! Not worth $40 per night. We have been at Fl. State parks that are beautiful for half the price.
Jetty Park at the end of June
Park is located on a wonderful family beach, near the historic city of Cocoa Beach, where many of the streets are names after America's 1st astronauts. Park is older and needs upgrading but the price is right, the campground is easily to get to via FL 520 or 528. Many memories of shuttle launches observed from the jetty fishing pier. Come on and enjoy the 1970s of Cocoa and surround areas.
