Campgrounds around Titusville, Florida

Campgrounds around Titusville, Florida
Titusville, Florida sits directly across from Cape Canaveral Air Station and NASA's space shuttle launching facility. This places it in the heart of Florida's "Space Coast," and it has long been a magnet for anyone looking to see a major space rocket launch. However, it is also surrounded by wetlands, lakes and beaches, many of which are organized into federal parklands or state conservation areas. Hikers, canoers, fishermen and wildlife watchers will all find plenty to do in the Titusville area, on top of perhaps being able to see a rocket fly into space.

Manatee Hammock Campground

Operated by Brevard County, Manatee Hammock Campground is a 26-acre wooded campground situated on Indian Lagoon.

Among its amenities are a swimming pool, Wi-Fi access in the campground reception center, and courts for horseshoes and shuffleboard. With its access to Indian Lagoon, the campground offers fishing opportunities both from shore and from its fishing pier. Tent campers are eligible for a 35 percent discount for stays of between seven and 14 days.

Canaveral National Seashore

Canaveral National Seashore allows some backcountry camping, but by permit only. This permit must be acquired in advance by going to the visitor's center, and no later than 4 p.m. of the day before your camping trip is to begin. The backcountry campgrounds consist of a pair of sites on Apollo Beach, with more scattered among the national seashore's many islands. The latter can only be reached by canoe, kayak or boat, and the national seashore rents canoes for campers using island sites one through five. Unlike many national park facilities, campfires are permitted at Canaveral National Seashore if the conditions are right, so consult with the park authorities to see if you need to bring a camp stove or not.

The national seashore is one of the Titusville area's main outdoor attractions in its own right, and is packed with opportunities for hiking, kayaking and canoeing, beach activities and fishing. It is also teeming with wildlife, and one of Florida's areas where manatees can be seen all year.

Crystal Lake RV Park

As the name might imply, Crystal Lake is primarily for RVs. However, the RV camping sites at Crystal Lake are grassy rather than paved, and the park does accept tent campers at discount rates. The features and facilities include a shower house, outdoor swimming pool, recreation hall with book exchanges, and free Wi-Fi access. Crystal Lake also has its own private, three-acre fishing pond, but swimming is banned due to the presence of alligators.
