County boat ramps remain open

Posted On: March 25, 2020

All 14 boat ramps maintained by Volusia County Government remain open to the public.

This includes:

  • Blue Lake Boat Ramp, DeLand
  • Candace R. Strawn – Lake Dias Boat Ramp, DeLeon Springs
  • Cypress Lake Park, DeLand
  • Ed Stone Park, DeLand
  • Highbanks Boat Ramp, DeBary
  • Highbridge Park, Ormond Beach
  • Hiles Boat Ramp, New Smyrna Beach
  • Lake Ashby Boat Ramp, New Smyrna Beach
  • Lake Monroe Park, DeBary
  • Lemon Bluff Boat Ramp, Osteen
  • Mariner’s Cove Park, Enterprise
  • River Breeze Park, Oak Hill
  • Shell Harbor Park, Pierson
  • Tomoka Boat Ramp, Ormond Beach 

However, the Volusia Sheriff’s Office is monitoring the ramps and boater gathering sites for crowds and congestion. The boat ramps will be closed if crowd control and social distancing measures are not followed.

Boaters are encouraged to avoid Disappearing Island and other sand bars that attract crowds.

“Feel free to fish, explore and enjoy the outdoors – at a safe distance from others,” noted County Manager George Recktenwald. “If boaters continue to gather in large groups, we will be forced to close our boat ramps.”

All persons should follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing, which call for maintaining a distance of six feet from others and avoiding group settings and mass gatherings.
