Awesome spot to take the little ones. No big waves or rip currents to worry about. It's not super shallow everywhere so you'll still need to be right near them, but they can frolic a lot more. They can even play around the rocks I. The really shallow parts. It's currently $8 per vehicle to get into the park (with... More

If you've been to the ocean with little ones you understand how nerve wracking it is to have little ones (under 5) near the water. We were so happy to find the little horseshoe beach by the inlet. It's perfect for small kids. We packed a big lunch, snacks, beach chairs, etc for a long day in the water. They... More

I was expecting a shabby, generic, shoestring operation consistent with most government endeavors. Instead, what I found was a well-run, clean, friendly and professional operation with good activities and good watersports equipment. Lousy food consistent with a zoo or a children's museum. In short...Kid food. Predictably prepackaged and overpriced. But aside from the culinary shortcomings, it was a good value... More

The beach is nice...like every other beach on the central Florida coast. There is also a fishing pier. Further back on the inlet is a smaller pool pond connected to the inlet which is better for little children.

The place is nice and I am pretty sure it could be much more nicer if there was not so much plastic , trash etc... Some people are just disgusting and do not honor the name of human . Please respect wildlife , respect rules ( no dogs and even if you can't read there is a picture ) .... More

Stopped by and walked the inlet area out onto the rock Jetty (concrete walkway). Very nice area to watch wildlife and the fishermen. Bathrooms and a restaurant in the park. A very popular area with the locals and visitors.

The campground restrooms were kept clean and always had toilet paper (a big plus for me).Ice and firewood are available. Campground fees allow access to both sides of the park which is split by the waterway. There is a small grill/gift shop and a bait shop in the park. We went tent camping in April which proved to be a... More

Sebastian Inlet state park is a great place to do. I see dolphins most nights walking along the inlet. The birds life is so interesting. If you are a fisherman, bring along your pole. You can walk the jettys and piers, or the beach, and see so many lovely sights. Some camp sites are a bit small, but everyone is... More
