Nova Family Campground is located just three miles from the beach and seven miles from the Daytona International Raceway, yet the facility provides a quiet respite and ideal base camp for Daytona Beach activities. Canaveral National Seashore is less than 20 miles away, and the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse is only nine miles from the RV park. So is the Ocean Center shopping center and amusement park.

Much of the campground is devoted to long-term RVers, but there are a dozen or so pull-through sites reserved for overnight guests. Monthly guests enjoy lower rates, but must pay for electricity.

The park is targeting older adults and amenities include just a swimming pool and game room. Internet service is acceptable at a download speed of 3.25 mbs and upload speed of 2.92 mbs. Verizon was clocked at 5.50 mbs download and 7.2 mbs upload.

A very small camp store provides basic RV equipment and some food items. There are no food options on site, but plenty of restaurants within a few miles. A Walmart supercenter is only about four miles away.

Most sites are 30-amp, but there are many back-in 50-amp sites available. The sites are large and offer a picnic table. Fires are allowed on-site, although wood must be purchased from the campground. Propane is available on site. There are cabins available for rent as well as a specialty product which is half tent, half cabin the campground calls "Florida Igloos."

The park is easily accessible from Interstate 95, which is only a few miles away. There is some road noise, especially late at night with occasional sirens going by. The staff is very accommodating. I enjoyed my stay at Nova Family Campground. It is a no-frills, clean, affordable and quite adult-oriented RV park close to all the Daytona Beach attractions.
