Space Coast RV Resort in Rockledge, Florida was our home base for a week while we explored the Florida Space Coast and Kennedy Space Center. When we decided to winter in Florida, we had four must do items on our list: camp at Fort Wilderness, drive to Key West, visit the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, and tour the Kennedy Space Center. After nearly four months in the Sunshine State, we were able to cross all the items off our list and experience more than we expected.

Space Coast RV Resort Rockledge, Florida
Right off Interstate 95, Space Coast RV Resort is about a 30 minute drive to the Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach. This is the second Encore Resort we’ve stayed at that’s right next to Lowe’s, which works out well for us as we always have “projects” to work on and made a few supply runs. Our stay was hosted by Encore and this post represents our own opinions.
One of the first things we noticed about this resort was the space ship arrows painted on the ground. This park has several one way streets and these arrows are quite helpful.
After check-in, we were lead to our site, D-37 by one of the campground workers. The site was gravel with grass and a picnic table. It was fairly level and we didn’t have to use blocks under the tires.
This site was in the back of the park, which is long and narrow. Below is the map of Space Coast RV Resort (sorry for the glare). There are some sites in the front called the “Woods” area, however most of the sites were towards the back in rows.
Most of the sites were quite large and could easily accommodate a 45′ coach and tow car. This is a photo of an empty site in our row.
There were several bathhouses throughout the resort. The one closest to us had separate restrooms and showers as well as a laundry room with two washers ($2-2.25) and four dryers $1.50). The facilities were cleaned every morning by Fred, a full timer at the park. The water pressure in the showers were great!
There is a dog walk area where we took Leo a few times a day. The park allows small dogs and large dogs need to be pre-approved by the manager.
There is a heated pool by the front office. Unfortunately, we didnt get a chance to use it.
Propane is available and it was $4.04/gallon during our stay in March 2016.
Overall, this park was a great way to spend a week in the Florida Space Coast. A service offered at this resort we haven’t seen anywhere else is trash pick up every morning at our site. All we had to do was make sure our trash was out front by 9am every morning for pick up. We were definitely spoiled by this!
