Sebastian Inlet Campground

Every good vacation should combine outdoor opportunities, creature comforts, and a chance to see and experience something new. If this is what you're looking for in the state of Florida, begin your vacation by booking a stay at Sebastian Inlet Campground in the breathtaking Sebastian Inlet State Park. This semi-cultivated RV park has restrooms, a dump station, and is very close to the inlet and the beach. When you book your site, you'll have access to fire rings with a grill, picnic tables, and water and electrical hookups; you can make your reservation several months in advance. The Melbourne Beach campground is pet-friendly to dogs on leashes, but dogs aren't allowed on the beach; the campground also has some sites that are designated for tent camping.Near the campground, Indian River Lagoon offers a perfectly calm environment for kayaking and canoeing along the mangrove-fringed shoreline, or you can head out into the ocean and paddle to the nearby islands. Rentals are available from a local outdoor store. There are several jetties that allow you access to offshore fishing and boat launches from which you can head even farther out. Anglers can fish from the docks, the shoreline, the inlet, and a nearby river (licenses are required for all forms of fishing). While camping at Sebastian Inlet State Park, you can hike, mountain bike, and picnic or relax while your kids take advantage of the playground. Snorkeling and scuba diving are allowed provided you stay close to the dive flags (so boats will be aware of your presence), and you can enjoy an unfettered view of the stars once the sun has set (the area's remoteness means you won't have light from the cities interrupting your view).

The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Indian River County, and you'll have access to a wide variety of rental RVs while looking for the unit that meets your needs. Once you've found one, start your vacation by heading to Upper St. Johns River Marsh Wildlife Management Area near Melbourne. This nature preserve is a collection of marshes divided by levees allowing the public to access the area. You can hike and mountain bike in the area or canoe or kayak the rivers and water bodies; park your RV rental nearby, and you can enjoy a hot meal and comfortable chair between your expeditions. The maintenance of this area has created a birder's paradise, with different varieties of egrets and ibis, great blue herons, limpkins, and other species. Hunting is allowed for deer, hogs, and smaller game, so you should exercise caution if you're here during hunting season; talking to the park rangers and asking advice is the best solution.Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area was created in 1974 when Florida purchased the land as part of the Environmentally Endangered Lands Program. The state hoped to reverse the damage that had been caused by logging and the burning of the plains to reduce saplings and promote grass for cattle to graze on. It has also worked to protect and restore the marshes and wet prairies that are native to the area, minimize flooding, protect animal and plant habitats, and provide the public with outdoor recreation areas. Hunting and fishing are allowed, although you may have to compete for the fish with some of the bird species; biking and hiking are also allowed, but the trails can be wet, so you should dress appropriately. Birding and wildlife viewing is assisted by an observation tower on Lake Jackson and a viewing blind located on the Sunset Ranch walking trail.Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park is an expansive grassland and one of the largest remaining tracts of dry prairie in the state. Its ecosystem is the result of repeated cycles of flooding and burning, which created a habitat harboring many rare and endangered bird species, like the crested caracara or burrowing owl. Bring your camera with you when you come, as the native plants and wildlife have a great blue sky backdrop. Stay overnight, and you can glimpse the stars without city light pollution. The inky black night sky allows you to see the Milky Way with your eyes alone (no telescopes required).

Exploring The Area

Before your vacation is over, take some time to enjoy the culture and attractions of the nearby communities. Cocoa is a popular tourist destination and was originally named, according to local lore, after a hotel or a baker's cocoa tin box that was nailed to a river piling and used as a mail drop. One of the city's attractions is Cocoa Village, a selection of quaint, old-fashioned stores selling ice cream, meals, and hardware among other items. You'll also find a historic theater that is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places; it was built and first opened in 1924 as a venue for silent films. Today it is a community theater managed by staff and volunteers, producing high-quality plays and musicals.Vero Beach has a number of museums to visit; one of them is dedicated to showing art, and it has an outdoor sculpture garden, a permanent indoor collection that is rotated throughout the building, and visitor exhibitions. It also offers art classes and displays some of its students' work. The city has several urban parks and a wildlife refuge where you can view the resident animals up close. There is an antique mall, a modern shopping mall, a farmers' market, and a brewery for when you're finally shopped out. A veterans memorial is housed near Indian River Lagoon and is a quiet sanctuary where you can relax and observe nature while you pay your respects. The city's restaurant scene has cafes, pub and seafood restaurants, and much more, and the prices range from inexpensive to fine dining.Untamed nature, history, and culture - you'll find it all in this small corner of Florida, and Sebastian Inlet Campground is there to make sure you do.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
