Ian,

I hope some of our TGO residents respond with specifics, but we parked on the west side of the Indian River, nose of the motorhome pointed at the launch site for a night launch back in 96 or 97. It was not marked, but it was private property. Owner came around and collected $15. Set the alarm, went to bed and got up for the launch (with the coffee ready). Around us were many who sleep in or on their cars - it was a copld night. Kinda felt bad sitting in the heated MH drinking our coffee. BG

The launch was fantastic.
