RV Park Review: Space Coast RV

Space Coast RV Resort
820 Barnes Rd
Rockledge, Florida
Exit 195 off of I-95

Date: March 3-March 17, 2015
Rate: $50-55 night, $265-340 week electric included with discounts for AAA, Good Sams, Encore and Thousand Trails members. We paid 38.80 a night a little more than we like to, but not bad for Florida in March.

Space Coast RV Resort is conveniently located to one of our favorite areas of Florida. We were looking for a home base that gave us easy access to Merritt Island, the Kennedy Space Center, Patrick Air Force Base, Spring Training Baseball and Cocoa Beach. If you are interested in watching nighttime rocket launches you can see them clearly from the park.

The park is clean and well maintained.
There is a lovely heated pool that Fred made use of almost every day.
There are shuffleboard courts.
There is a neat and clean coin operated Laundromat.
Park WiFi is very limited.
The park allows pets. I would call it dog tolerant rather than dog friendly. No dog fences allowed and there are specific areas where dogs may be walked. There is a dog beach in Córdova park which is about 15 minutes away.
The roads are paved and level making walking and bike riding a pleasure.
If you stroll around the park and go on every street you have a nice 2 1/2 mile walk.

The staff are accommodating and very friendly, we were even led to our pull through site by a staff member who wanted to show us the easiest route.

The sites at Space Coast are long but narrow. There was plenty of room to park our 40 foot coach and Silverado, but we were quite close to the neighbors. Don't misunderstand, there was room to put out our slides and establish an outdoor sitting area with our lounge chairs and a picnic table. I just prefer a little more space between rigs.

Our view out the front was of a lovely pond with a fountain that was visited every day by a pair of Mallard ducks, a squadron of Sand Hill Cranes, and the occasional Cormorant and Egret.

The residents are nice and very friendly. There is a well balanced mix of permanent residents, snow birds and transients that made for great conversation about travel and life style choices. We met several couples from Canada that gave us some "don't miss" suggestions for our trip to the Maritimes this Summer.

All things considered we would stay here again.
