Canaveral National Seashore - Canaveral National Seashore is a national park located near Titusville, Florida.  The park contains 58,000 acres of barrier island, open lagoon, coastal hammock, pine flatwoods and offshore waters along the east central coast of Florida.   It represents an excellent example of a relatively stable barrier beach backed by a productive lagoon system.  

The park's 24 miles of undeveloped beach is the longest such stretch on the east coast of Florida.  Mosquito Lagoon, which comprises over two-thirds of the park, is designated an Outstanding Florida Water and as a part of the 155-mile long Indian River Lagoon (IRL), an Estuary of National Significance.
