My wife and I stayed at Manatee Cove for a few nights. We arrived on Memorial Day, and we were surprised to find the office open. Registration was easy. You will have to show registration and proof of insurance for your RV and any other vehicles which you may have with you. You will also have to present proof of Rabies vaccination for any dogs if you have one. Since we arrived on a holiday, the Patrick truck gate was closed. You have to use this gate for RVs since there is no way to navigate the other gates with a longer vehicle. We called the security forces number, 321-494-2008, and we were told that someone would be there soon. Security forces were there before too long, and we were cleared to get on the base. You only have to use the truck gate to come on the base, but you can use the other gates when leaving. I asked about getting a river front site since I noticed that they were mostly empty when we drove in. I was told that they were currently closed for shore line renovation. We were given site 41 which was just across the street from the river front sites. The view was awesome. It appears that Patrick AFB was hit hard by hurricane Irma last year, and it caused shore erosion on the Banana River. It was good to see that they are working hard to restore the shore line. The campground is in my opinions divided into two different sections. The first section, which is where we were assigned, is made up of sites with gravel parking areas. This area has several trees which provide some shade. The second section look newer, and has cement parking pads, and are mostly pull through. Each section has it's own shower house/bathroom. Both shower houses look to be very well maintained. We enjoyed our stay, and will visit again.

Stayed here last month and really enjoyed it. There is a nice, quiet beach area where we did some fishing. We saw a shuttle launch from the beach as well. Good dog park, and plenty of space to walk. Close to Melbourne and Cocoa Beach. We were on a concrete pad, with plenty of room.

Three notes. On 26 April, they began the requirement to present registration and proof of insurance for EACH vehicle entering. Pet vacination certificate is also required. Next note: If the commercial gate is closed, before you make a left from A1A make sure that rear end will not stick out into oncoming traffic. I saw, at dusk, a MH plus Toad sticking out about 5 feet into the 55 mph right lane. Next note: Leaving the base, your GPS will likely send you on a now blocked off road ( Breakers Lane). Be aware.

I did not stay at this campground...the camp host was very polite and apologetic but would not allow me to check in because I had a trailer attached to my motor home...she told me I could only check in if I found somewhere to put my trailer. She told me the marina could store my trailer but they would not be open until the next morning...so what the heck am I supposed to do? My rig and trailer would have easily fit on almost any of the many open sites...and there were lots of open sites...too bad they turn away those of us who have served our country for something as stupid as a trailer. PATHETIC!!!. I will spend my hard earned dollars at a campground that is more appreciative of veterans...at least I was given a list of other camps...it was getting late so I went the closest one at Wickam park.

Very nice well kept park. Over priced for what they offer. No WIFI and only one laundry room with 4 washers and 4 dryers. Most of the park has no trees our grass. Makes its very muddy when it rains. Has a nice recreation area. I just don't think there rates our good for a bunch of retired people.

I was debating north or south from Fort Lauderdale after a visit with my son. The coin landed heads and north to Manatee Cove over NASKW. Wish I'd have gone south just because weather was meh. For the record, I'm a tent camper and really would prefer electricity at my site because I occasionally need a heater or fan to ameliorate some weather factors and I like keeping my phone and laptop functioning. Military famcamps seem to discriminate against tent campers by relegating us to the back 40 well away from the main services offered to folks in the mega-wheeled mansions. Heck, it's even written into the camp regs that tents are not allowed on serviced sites. Why? I served the same career time as those who'd rather live in a mobile home. On to the review - the tent area at Manatee was destroyed by Irma and has not been touched since. It was bulldozed level and left to rot. A temporary location was set up across the road with picnic tables denoting sites, but the old side has not been marked off limits. How do I know this? I set up on the one remaining MARKED site in the old area and was asked to move shortly after arrival. Hmmm, signage sure would help and so would a desk clerk pointing it out. The camp host was polite about it, but did insist I move ASAP as I stood there with dinner in my hands. I politely insisted I would as soon as the food was gone. :) I ate first, then moved. The shower facilities were excellent and the dog run area was a bonus for my lil mutt to play off leash. He loved it. I left a day early for home due to rain and wind. The views were fantastic and I'd love to enjoy it in better weather. I'll be back. Three stars for lack of motivation on getting the tent campground up and running again. It wouldn't take much to add an electrical outlet at each site while they're working over there.

The no reservation policy has kept us away from this Famcamp in the past but we wanted to get out of Dodge for a few days over the holidays and took a chance. We were rewarded with our (only) three hour trip with one of two available sites. We loved our location (61?) as it had grass behind it and was not surrounded by pavement. The directions to get to the base with an rv are not clear. You must enter thru the commercial gate found on A1A and call security to have them open it if closed. If you are leaving via 404W, you may exit through the South Gate as it is a straight shot. Do not go through that gate otherwise. The east gate was closed while we were there, so do not know the status of the exit. We like the amenities on the base...exchange, commissary, gas station with package store, lovely golf course, marina...great place for a drink at sunset, easy kayak launching at Famcamp, nice community center with lots of regularly scheduled activities, clean, spacious showers, laundry room, fenced dog park, playground nearby with dog walk. Looks like they are still working on repairs from Irma damage but the site we were at had a new platform with pvc table and 4 cushioned chairs and new level crushed rock parking. Nice chairs on the Banana River side to relax, watch sunset or dolphins. They do not have cable or WiFi on the individual sites if that is something you want. Campers stay here a long time...up to 170 days! No wonder it is hard to get a site! We are short termers...like to move on after a few days. Fellow campers said the grounds were busier this year dt the closing of the Key West sites dt Irma. They evidently reopened on the 27th and we noticed an increase in campers leaving. Base is close to many activities. We visited Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge and took their 7 mile drive...lots of gators, cranes and other birds. Take route 3 back to the base for some great views. Of course Kennedy Space Center is right there as well as a national seashore. Lots to do. We plan on going back hopefully for one of the rocket launches and will take the kayaks, golf clubs and bikes.

Need a place to store your Motor home with full hook ups? Arrived here the 29th of October due to the fact NASKW was closed. Thought this would be a good alternative till KW opened. Was lucky and got the last big rig site available, My travelling companions not so lucky, were turned away as nothing was available. After a week here and walking around the campground with my pets, noticed a particular campsite with a motor home parked, no slides out no sewer hooked up only water and electricity. RED FLAG ! Since my friends were turned away for no spaces available for big rigs I inquired at the camp office as to why this was. The camp host just happened to be in the office at that moment and when I asked how that could be and maybe they needed to do a health and welfare inspection to insure the occupants were OK, he immediately blurted out that site belonged to his brother, no further explanation ( who camps with no slide outs and no sewer hooked up, Gotta take a shower or wash dishes you would think. It just so happens I had a friend who was staying across the street from this site and knew the occupants from KeyWest. he said they were there when he arrived a week prior but left. and haven't been back since. A month went by still no activity. The camp host had parked his extra vehicle in front of the spot to make it appear there was someone staying there. Finally contacted the MWR director Ms Parish, and was told she wasn't and couldn't be concerned how people camp. Wrong answer. When told there had been no one there for the past month she basically called us both liars. Informed her was not buying that explanation and I would be filing an ICE report to the Commander. A week later Rig was out of camp ground but camp host is still in his position. Not what I expected from someone whose vehicle license plate reads 06RET would have expected a little more integrity from said individual. problems with the campground go unresolved, as I reported a fire ant problem with my site and that we were being bitten by the fire ants and could they contact the base CE to resolve. A week went by and I inquired again, showing them a picture of where they had occupied the ground at the entrance to my motor home, was told they were working on it. Would have taken care of myself but they have a strict rule about introducing chemicals to the ECO system. A month later still a problem, Took care of the entrance way myself. Was told no one else had complained by office,and they couldn't spray the whole camp ground, needed a list, Other camp host said they had a list, office said no they didn't Placed a note on bulletin board in laundry room for people to get on list if they were also having a problem, camp office personnel removed Management not responsive however Base facilities are great PX, Commissary, Clubs etc

8 July - 7 August 2017

A change in our plans brought us back to Florida earlier than normal. We are sorry we could not continue on our planned route, but we are glad we spent this summer in Florida. Manatee Cove was a pleasant surprise. We have stayed here before, but not in the summer. The Camp Hosts and the Outdoor Rec, MWR folks were all courteous and helpful. Always willing to talk and offer advice about the local area. As mentioned in an earlier review the restroom and laundry facilities are new, nice and clean. The only issue I had with the laundry room was the lack of ventilation. I can understand not having air conditioning, but a fan would be great. Something to move the air, the room is stifling hot. Since the completion of the renovation there are a number of new full hook up sites. I believe all sites have been upgraded to 50Amp, full hook-ups. We hope to spend the winter here, but that remains to be seen because it is a first come, first serve basis. The MWR/Outdoor Rec staff hours have been cut back severely. They are on duty 0900 – 1300 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Capable, courteous folks. We see the funding cut backs in lots of areas, this is just one more. Fortunately the Camp Hosts are really great, they know there jobs and preform them professionally and politely. I believe PAFB has the best pharmacy support in the DOD. The BX and Commissary are more than adequate. They have a good golf course, gym and marina. Very limited on swimming pools, but you have the Ocean to make up for it. This is a great place that I highly recommend. 45ft Entegra, Aspire RV with a Jeep. Wrangler, Unlimited

Nov - Dec, 2016

I went to Manatee Cove to Enjoy Some time away from snow in Mich. I was greeted at the office by the comment (what are you doing here, we hired someone to do Karaoke) I did Karaoke for the last 2 years with no compensation and I enjoyed It. Went to Karaoke, the guy was terrible so I Went to Karaoke no more which was fine with me. People kept wanting me to go so I went. The Karaoke host came to me to talk and threatened me so I walked away from him. He then grabbed me and I pushed him away from me to protect myself and someone turned in a complaint against me and I was kicked off the campground. I asked if I was allowed to say anything and was told an officer would come and escort me off the Base. No Explanation from me at all. The guy was rite, If you are not part of the Clique, Good Luck. I am a veteran and I do want Respect. This Campground would be great if the people who run it cared about the campers instead of just the money

This place is a full-time retirement community and if you are not part of their "clique" good luck! They are very unfriendly and all act entitled. Unfortunately upon arrival, we were exhausted and late we signed the paperwork in the dark, provided our dogs proof of rabies and then they brought us to a sight. The host told us our 36' RV was too big to park in the spots with a water view. We ended up in the middle of a parking lot with not much around. The next day we realized we had handed them an envelope (that had $1,350 in it!!) along with the rabies certificates. When we asked the host about our missing envelope, he told us the people around there are always trying to rub two nickels together to make a dime and that we would never see that again. I said at a military campground you would think people would be more honest...he just shrugged his shoulders. A few days later his wife indicated she saw the envelope my husband had but doesn't know what happened to it. She can't believe people aren't more honest. All in all, I wouldn't bother to make the trip again to sit in a parking lot with rude people all around. We can't prove what happened to the money but we know. We had a conversation with the host about karma...he brought it up and I think he might be worried. We found out when we were leaving that their contract is up and they won't be working there anymore. Hmmm....

We are active duty and were on vacation at NAS Key West (Sigsbee). This was our first time staying here and used Manatee as our half way stop between Key West and Fort Bragg. Arriving on a weekend and be sure to call base security as you need to come through the delivery gate that is not opened on the weekend. Security was great and opened it within 20 minutes of us calling. We arrived at Manatee and met Jim and Laura the camp hosts who were were wonderful, very helpful and answered all of our questions. They were really great. The campground is fairly new and located on the water. The restroom and laundry facilities were brand new, nice and clean. The "dayroom" for us Army folks was open and had WIFI and TV available for guests. Each RV space has a nice new set of comfy chairs and table. They have pull through sites and back in sites. The place is very clean, neat, and tidy. This maybe important for some: We noticed the camp itself is not wired with WIFI. You have to go to the "dayroom" for internet. Shopette and stores are on the other side of the base around the airfield. Everything is within a short drive of the campground. Get your supplies before you arrive at Manatee! The reason for 4 stars on location is because it is tucked away from everything and I mean everything. 4 stars for value was because of the $30 a night stay. Four stars for amenities was for not having WIFI or a drink machine (We forgot our drinks and had to travel all the way over to the shopette.) Overall, this is a great place to stay with great camp hosts.

They are done with the construction and the new pads are nice. They furnish each sight with a table and chairs. The new bath house and laundry is great and kept clean. The office people are helpful. You have the Banana river on one side and the ocean the other. Has a nice commissary and exchange. The Base is not very busy with all the cut backs. The one thing you have to remember is to dig into your mattress or rob the piggy bank. The cost is higher than any where else I have stayed. I will be back though because of the location.

Sept. 20th to Sept.27th 2016

This will be a wonderful place for the snowbirds as the new sites are varying sizes with nice concrete pads and many of them will accommodate big rigs. The price of $30.00 for the sites along the Banana River is surprising as they are still the same as when we were there 2 years ago and paid a lot less. Did notice there is minimal parking available at the new check in/community building so folks will have quite a walk to get there from the old sites at the entrance. Some of the sewers are placed awkwardly at the new sites but from all our years of RV'ing you normally do not get an odor when someone dumps properly and most folks dump in the AM. If you have a big rig do not try and turn into the road to get to the registration office it is tight. We parked our rig at the playground and drove the car down or you can park at the RV parking spot on the right side where the old check in trailer used to be. Definitely will go back again in the spring or fall as it is an easy ride from Hernando Co., Fl.

WOW what a shocker, the price increase is out of this world. We haven't got a cost of living raise in over 6 half years and the price has went from $17 to $30 dollars. They are putting the cost of their FamCamp upgrade all on the campers. I have been a camper to PAFB FamCamp since the year of 2002 to the present and this year they finally made a needed upgrade. What happen to the money collected all those years and no money was put back into the FamCamp. I have used many military campgrounds and this one has to be the highest of all military campgrounds. Was a survey of all military campgrounds conducted to get the overall average. I bet not. I have found that the average is around $21 a nite to include WiFi and cable TV which these site don't have. You can tell by looking at the new sites installed that a RVer was never consulted in the planning stage. The sites are very small and the sewer hook-up of the neighboring site is right next to the site's patio. Can you imagine setting outside of your camper having dinner with your family in the hot summer smelling sewage. I think before they open these sites that a health survey be conducted to determine that this is not a safety hazard. I feel these prices are just a cash cow for MWR at Patrick AFB to save face for their poor planning and mismanagement of this project because they haven't offered to camper a damn thing.

Very nice campground that is very close to both Port Canaveral and Cape Canaveral. Camp host very friendly, helpful for check in and getting to the site. Older sites are gravel, but smooth. Concrete pad with picnic table. It looks as if they are about finished with an addition of about 30-40!more sites (pull through) on concrete pads! Great walking trail along the bay! Our only problem and it, really was very frustrating, is it took almost one hour to get in the truck/commercial gate. The phone number on the gate to call security forces had no area code. When we found the area code for this site the number just rang. Found the base website and a phone number that had an operator (did not think this existed any longer), which then went to a number that you had to go through about 4-5 steps to reach the SF Desk. SF said they would send someone ASAP. 30 minutes later had to go through the same phone process to reach SF Desk, again stating they would have someone there ASAP. This was 5 pm on a Sunday and there was barely any traffic noted on the base. 50 minutes later SF showed up to unlock the gate! This is an awful process to enter the base. Sure, the site was excellent but to wait for this gate to be opened (and according to the host this happens often) is really awful! Love to come back but this process makes us rethink it.

The only reason I gave the 4 rating for the facilities was they were working on the expansion while we were there. It didn't bother us and didn't inconvenience us, but I really couldn't give it a 5 either. I really liked this place, it was our first time here and all the people we met were so friendly and the camp hosts were so helpful, as a matter of fact they let us use their car to run over to the commissary before it closed the afternoon we got there. Not a lot of activity right there at the CG, but there is all kind of things to do in the area. My wife and I like it peaceful like that, we spend most of the time on the little beach she collects sea shells and I take pictures its very quite and relaxing. We stayed in a motorhome for 2 days.

Major reconstruction going on here with all 35 overflow electric only sites shut down due to adding sewer and water. There are 33 new sites being constructed south of the campground office. There are 17 waiting in line to get into full hookups. Overflow into Chevron park has only 3 spaces allowed for a maximum of 48 hours only. If you do not get a spot after 48 hours you must leave the base. The worst is the muddy roads and swamp like conditions in the water and electric only sites. I feel the base should at least grade the dirt roads and add some gravel to these areas....it's a MESS! This area has had almost 8 inches of rain this month, normal rainfall is 2 inches. It will be nice when finished but I would not advise coming here until June when the construction should be completed. The office personnel and camp hosts are working very hard to help all their customers in these difficult conditions!
