CANAVERAL PICNIC AREAS


There are no large picnic areas at Canaveral National Seashore or Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The only picnicking facilities available are a few tables where visitors can sit and have a bite to eat. There are no grills.

CANAVERAL NATIONAL SEASHORE

Apollo Beach Visitor Center

A covered pavilion with six picnic tables is located at the shore of Mosquito Lagoon next to the boat dock. With the breeze from the lagoon and shade from the pavilion, this is a great place to have a picnic.

Three picnic tables are located to the right of the main boat ramp in the same area as the canoe launch. The area has its own parking lot.
