Jetty Park Campground re-opens just in time for SpaceX launch on Thursday

ULA indicates it may try again to launch Delta IV Heavy on September 26

Good news for campers from Port Canaveral, who announced Tuesday that the Jetty Park Campground has reopened for full hook-up sites just in time for the launch of SpaceX’s 13th batch of Starlink satellites.

Lift-off is set for 2:07 P.M. Thursday.

The campground was closed back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Port Canaveral reopened the park to annual pass holders with 50 percent capacity in June.

Now the campground is partially open with only full hook-up sites available. Click here for the link to make a reservation.

The playground, communal firepits, shuffleboard, and horseshoe area will remain closed for now.

Jetty Park is located at Port Canaveral and is a favorite spot to watch a launch.

Other than the SpaceX launch set for tomorrow, United Launch Alliance President Tory Bruno announced on twitter the company is eyeing September 26 to try again for lift-off of the Delta IV Heavy.

The mission dubbed NROL-44 had been scrubbed twice in August then suffered a hot fire abort on the 29th at T-3 seconds to lift-off due to a problem with one of its boosters. Click here to watch the hot fire abort.

Bruno said engineers are replacing all three booster regulators just to be safe.
