Jetty Park Cape Canaveral, Florida
Trip Report/Photos from Stephengatlin
Jetty Park is our "go to" place for a weekend getaway. Only 45 minutes from Orlando, we pack up or 30' Class C named "Gus" and head East. There are sites with full hookups, but we choose to be 30 yards from the jetty and only water is proivded. Dump stations are available.
This is THE place to sit, relax, and watch cruise ships come and go as they head out to sea. It is also a fantastic place to watch Falcon-9 launches and other spacecraft. We park facing the jetty and it abounds with families fishing, relaxing and the scent of BBQ fills the air. A short 10-minute walk to the pier allows for great fishing. A general store is available as well as a restaurant.
A 5-minute drive will take you to Port Canaveral where Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean and a few gambling vessels berth. It is also across from the Falcon-9 recovery area and you may get and up close and personal view of one of the used rockets. Just outside the port you can find several seafood restaurants and bars. Fishlips is our favorite and it's right on the water. Service is awesome and so are the mixed drinks!
