Reservations are available for active duty personnel and will be accepted not less than 30 days in advance. All others will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Located directly along the historic Banana River, the campground currently has 156 full-service sites with 30/50 amp capability, ten primitive camping sites, two laundry and shower facilities, a 24-hour community center and a private beach. Placement is on a first-come, first-served basis with the exception of active duty personnel. Potential guests are highly encouraged to call ahead and inquire about availability during the months of November thru February when the campground traditionally maintains close to full capacity.

Valued Guests, Thank you for your patronage in the Manatee Cove Campground. Please be advised of the following changes to our operation, effective Nov 1, 2016. The maxium length of uninterrupted stay in the campground shall be 170 days. Guests shall then vacate the campground for a minimum period of 48 hours. The campground may not be used to establish residency in the State of Florida.
Return to the campground shall be based on site availability with the exception of active duty personnel who shall be placed back into the campground upon request. This change will enable Outdoor Recreation to be compliant with State residency mandates and Air Force policy. Guests are reminded the Chevron Park parking lot is an approved overnight rest area and is not permitted for use as an overflow area for the campground.
Active duty personnel shall provide a minimum of 30 days advance notice for reservations. We highly encourage more advance notice when possible to ensure placement in the campground when desired. Other guests will not be directed to leave the campground to accommodate an active duty member.
Thank you for you business and we look forward to serving you and your family in the future.
