Mosquito Lagoon RV Park Boat Ramp
There are a lot of boating opportunities in Florida, but finding a boat ramp in Volusia County to launch from can be a challenge. Listed below are Mosquito Lagoon boat ramps in the Oak Hill area and a little information about each. Of course, the closest boat ramp to the Mosquito Lagoon RV Park is right here within our campground and is FREE for our guests!
Our Mosquito Lagoon RV Park Boat Ramp has a sand bottom and offers canal access to the Mosquito Lagoon. Markers are located along the channel to exit the shallow waters near the shoreline of the RV park. An experienced boat operator can easily put in at our boat ramp – even boats as long as 22’. Water depth is most commonly between 3’ and 5’ so you’ll need to know the tide and your boat’s minimal operating depth.
Our boat ramp also offers tie posts, trash receptacles and a fish cleaning station with running water. The boat ramp is free for our guests. Please contact us for information about trailer parking.
We know several fishing and nature guides. Give us a call at 321-213-4973 and we’ll “hook” you up. Another option is to check out one of our kayaks for a great adventure on the water of the Mosquito Lagoon.
