Locals and visitors to Port Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, and the greater Cape Canaveral area love to spend some time at Jetty Park. Even if you’re in the area for the space-related attractions, the team at Carl’s Van Rentals recommends that you take a few hours to explore this 35-acre park that has a little bit of something for everyone.

Port Canaveral attractions

Part of the Brevard County park system, Jetty Park is visited year-round due to its outdoor recreation opportunities, such as:

  • Swimming: Enjoy time at the park’s family-friendly beach that has lifeguards on duty year-round.
  • Fishing: Cast a line off of the fishing pier that’s open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. The pier is easily accessible to all people and has fish-cleaning tables, running water, and more.
  • Boardwalk: Enjoy a stroll along the park’s boardwalk. You can watch the water, look for wildlife, and watch local fishermen.
  • Picnicking: The park supplies both picnic tables and pavilions in case you want to bring your own lunch. You can also stop by the park’s refreshment center in case you just want a light snack.
  • Camping: Want to stay overnight at the park? You can book one of the park’s 210 campsites or even rent one of the cabins. The campground accommodates both RV and tent camping.
