Covering Port Canaveral area southward through Indian Harbour Beach.

Port Canaveral; There are three parks at Port Canaveral managed by the Canaveral Port Authority. Technically, only Jetty Park has surf fishing but the pier is more popular. The other two parks provide fishing in the port itself.
Jetty Park; Port Canaveral Directions; Driving from Orlando on Hwy 528 East. After crossing over I-95, drive 12 miles on Hwy 528 East and exit right to the "B" cruise terminals. After exit, turn left under bridge onto George King Blvd. Drive 1.3 miles and enter Jetty Park entrance. From A1A in Cape Canaveral, take the port Canaveral entrance at George King Blvd. Drive 1.3 miles and enter Jetty Park entrance.
Jetty Park is one of the most popular recreation spots in Brevard County. Besides the 4.5 acre family beach with its designated areas for swimming and surfing (lifeguards on duty year round), one of this park's best-loved features is the 1,200 foot Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier - open 24 hours, paved, lighted, equipped with fish-cleaning tables with running water and fully accessible to the physically challenged. From the pier you can cast towards the channel to the port or to an unsurfaced rock jetty that parallels the fishing jetty. A fee is required for use of the park. Fishing from Jetty Park can result in a variety of catches, including the usual surf suspects, pompano, whiting, margate, bluefish Spanish mackerel, black drum, redfish, and jack crevalle. Because of deep water and structure, snook, tarpon, mangrove snapper, flounder, and sheepshead are added to the mix. Then things get interesting as the possibility catching king mackerel and other species normally associated with offshore fishing exists. Specially designed beach wheelchairs, available from the concession stand give access both to the beach and pier. A recently renovated and expanded building on the boardwalk houses an air-conditioned refreshment center and a bait and tackle shop.
Jetty Park also contains a 126-site campground with options from rustic tent areas to full RV hookups.
There are fees for day parking and camping at Jetty Park. For cars, day parking is $10.00. Camping fees range from $25 to $47, depending on the utilities included and the season. For campground or picnic pavilion reservations, call 321-783-7111.
