The beach is a perfect place to get away from the busy city of Orlando. Canaveral National Seashore is a natural beach, so there are no hotels or vendors, and no designated eating areas. There are very few picnic tables available, so be prepared to eat on the beach. Visitors may want to bring bottled water and a packed lunch with them. Camping is permitted at Klondike Beach but requires a permit. For camping information and reservations visit: or call 1-877-444-6777.

Be forewarned, past the last parking lots on each end are nude beaches. Nudity is legal, and police do patrol the area. The National Park Service and nudists made an agreement stating all suits must stay on until they are 150 yards (137 meters) from the last parking area.
