"Free Show" at Long Point Park Campground


Long Point Park Campground is located in the city of Melbourne Beach, Florida. Connecting the campground to Scout Island, a tiny remote island with no services that is used for remote camping and hiking, is a pedestrian only bridge. You'll likely find people fishing from the bridge, or just watching the "free show" in the Indian River Lagoon.

Social Media Description

Have you ever been surprised by a wildlife sighting?

Although it hasn't happened often, I just love it when we see wildlife in unexpected places! Earlier this year, we spent several days camping at Long Point Park Campground in Melbourne Beach, Florida. Our site was almost directly across from a pedestrian only bridge that led to a small island.

On our first full day there, we decided to check out the bridge (and the island). It was hard to pull me away from the bridge as we saw a manatee and a couple of dolphins swimming in the water below. Over the next couple of days, I wanted to spend more and more time on the bridge. We did see a dolphin one other time, but I have to admit that it was less exciting once we knew that they swim in the waters!
