The best camping near Sebastian Inlet State Park guide

Overview

About

Golden sands and misty seascapes stretch along the Atlantic Coast at Sebastian Inlet State Park, where surfers congregate to ride famous surf breaks like “First Peak” and “Monster Hole.” If you prefer tranquil paddling to crashing surf, the central Indian River Lagoon provides a scenic spot for boating and kayaking, along with snorkeling, scuba diving, and saltwater fishing. Don’t miss a visit to the McLarty Treasure Museum to admire treasure from an 18th-century Spanish shipwreck, then check into the Sebastian Inlet Campground, where the RV and tent sites all have full hookups, fire rings, and picnic benches.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve one of 51 full-facility campsites at Sebastian Inlet State Campground via the Florida State Parks Reservation website.
  2. Sebastian Inlet campsite reservations can be made 11 months in advance for Florida residents, or 10 months in advance for non-residents.
  3. Campsites can book up fast, especially in peak season (April-September) and over holiday weekends, so book at least three months in advance.

When to go

Summer is peak season at Sebastian Inlet State Park, so arrive early to secure a parking spot and expect crowds along the beaches. Spring and late fall through winter are the best times for birding along the coast, when migratory shorebirds flock to the coast. If you’re visiting in June or July, this is the chance to spot loggerhead sea turtles nesting along the beach, but you’ll need to book a ranger-led tour to do so.

Know before you go

  • Sebastian Inlet State Park is 20 miles southeast of Melbourne, about a 30-minute drive away.
  • There are day-use fees for all Florida State Parks, and campsite booking fees also apply. 
  • Facilities at Sebastian Inlet State Park include boat ramps, picnic areas, a playground, beach showers, a Visitor Center, a restaurant and gift shop, and bait shops.
  • You can bring your own boat and watercraft to the park, but boat launch fees may apply. There are no lifeguard patrols at Sebastian Inlet, so swim at your own risk and pay attention to warning flags indicating water conditions.
  • There are ADA-accessible campsites, fishing jetties, restrooms, beaches, and other facilities at Sebastian Inlet. Beach wheelchairs are also available.
