Campgrounds for viewing a shuttle launch

I'd love to stay in a CG where I can view a launch. Does anyone have a suggestion? thanks so much.

Jetty Park! Jetty Park Florida Campgrounds for Tents and RVs

Or, like other folks, line up along the causeway (SR 406). I believe they allow overnight camping the night prior to a launch.

Another nice park is Manatee Hammock - though I am not certain of the view, a short walk down US-1 should provide several possibilities. It's just about 5 miles south of Titusville.

stayed at Jetty Park last year for the return..... did not see it mind was delayed due to heavy clouds and then the minute we were back to the AS we heard it breaking the sound barrier. Would recommend Jetty Park

There is Christmas Airstream Park about 10 minutes from Titusville. Don't know if they have the same management as when we were there a few years ago, but watch them.

Thanks so much for all the responses. Every place was pretty much booked up since it's so close to the launch, but we managed to book a site at Manatee Hammock from a cancellation. I appreciate your help and will let you know it good the view is from here.. that is if it goes off as scheduled.

Should try Land Yacht Harbor in Melbourne Florida - the launch view is great. Check the website for additional info. Good luck.

BTW, for those of you who want to see, hear and feel a launch... Manatee Hammock campground is too far away. If I had looked away i might have missed the launch.
