Full Facility Camping
The central location of Sebastian Inlet’s campground makes it a popular camping spot. It is a mere stone’s throw from the inlet and a short stroll from the beach. All 51 campsites have water and electrical hook-ups, a fire ring with grill, and a picnic table. Also available are full restroom facilities, a dump station, laundry facilities, and pay phones. Reservations are offered up to 11 months in advance. Check-in time is from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

Sebastian Inlet and the surrounding waters provide fantastic Florida fishing for beach, river and inlet anglers. Large catches are often made from the two jetties extending into the Atlantic Ocean. Boat launch facilities provide access to nearby offshore fishing and diving. Information on fishing regulations is available at both entrance stations and salt water fishing licenses can be obtained at the Bait Shop. Spear fishing is prohibited.

Three miles of Atlantic beach offer some of the best surfing on the East Coast of Florida. One of the most consistent surf breaks in Florida is Sebastian Inlet's first peak, located next to the north jetty. Another hot surf spot is Monster Hole--located about 1/3 mile off the beach, on the south side of Sebastian Inlet. The contour of the ocean floor rises up and when the surf is big, the waves form long lines, giving a long ride.

Four waterfront picnic pavilions are clustered together on the south side of Sebastian Inlet. Each picnic pavilion can accommodate up to sixty people each and can be reserved at a cost of $60.00 for a pavilion or $30.00 for a half pavilion. The picnic pavilion rental time is from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For reservations, please call 772-589-9659.
