"Spacious Sites close enough to watch history being made"

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
This is our second trip to Manatee Hammock Campground. The first time we sought a place near the coast so we might put our toes in the Atlantic Ocean. Cocoa Beach is 34 minutes south east. We returned because of the spacious sites that are separated from one another by natural greenery and is very quiet (~40 dBA, similar to a quiet living room...

"Day hike and morning shift "

If working online is a concern for you like it is for me you want to consider other options. Site A15 is closest to the cell service area which can be reached from the tent only camping area in A sites. The sites in B and C have no service. The visitors center has free WiFi and a turn out had great service just outside the park. Good...

Anyway we had a...

He said they will be removing their horse set-up (maybe an old rodeo grounds or something like that), and will be putting a campground there. The park...

"Great park!"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
I was a bit apprehensive when we arrived and I saw the terraces in the Rv park. But…. We were escorted to our site and it was an easy in and easy out. Great location, clean park , reasonable prices and pride of ownership displayed throughout the campground. We are heading back to Hill Country in Late winter and look forward to a return stay!
