A beautiful beach, relatively easy parking, the most disgusting bathroom I have ever seen in my life

This is a public beach and one of the few in the Cocoa Beach area that is free to park. There are public restrooms that are okay and outside showers to rinse off before getting in your vehicle to leave. While we were visiting there was a small snack stand to purchase hot dogs, sodas, water, etc. but it was... More

Visited here from Virginia and I have to say it was a good experience. The changing area/bathrooms were decent and got the job done. We came late in the evening and the weather was perfect. We hit the beach for a while and had a great time. We were too late to see any chairs or anything to rent. No... More

Love this place when there are no events going on. They have facilities, showers, playground, beach acess with nature bored walks. Not sure how they can charge locals for parking at a local beach!

We enjoyed our evening stroll through the park. Saw raccoons, squirrels, spiders, butterflies, and lizards. No armadillos though. Nice boardwalk to walk on. Stroller friendly. Nice view of ocean.

We stopped at Lori Wilson Park after visiting the space center. It is some 15min away, has multiple parkings (big enough for RV) and it is freeeeee :) Shower by the parking lot are a blessing to get all that sand off you before getting back on the road. Beach itself is hugeeee so plenty of space for anybody, water... More

We arrived approximately 10am on a Friday just as the closer parking lot was filling up. We had no problem finding our spot on the beach. If we had known they were available, we may have just rented 2 beach chairs and an umbrella - $10/hr or $20/day. The tide at this time of day allowed for a long area... More

There is a great dog park right next to it also. This is a great place to bring your little or big dogs and have a great time. Come at about 6 PM so you don't get a heat stroke.

We really enjoyed the beach this past week. Had our four daughters ages 14 to 30 with us and they really enjoyed it. Weather was really hot but we went early and stayed a few hours. Actually felt much cooler by the water. There was a rental deal of two chairs and umbrella so we rented two sets since it... More
