Mosquito Lagoon Camping
Primitive Camping in the Lagoon
There is so much for someone who appreciates the outdoors to do in and around the Mosquito Lagoon, camping is a great way to experience the great ecosystem.
The only primitive camping in the area is on the Islands of Canaveral National Seashore. Their contact info is (321) 267-1110.
Canaveral National Seashore Island Camping
Camping in Mosquito Lagoon is a great way to explore the area.

Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge
In the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge there are special rules you must follow.
You must possess a current signed Refuge Sports Fishing Permit at all times while fishing on the Refuge. The permit is self-issuing and assures you have read and understand Merritt Island NWR's fishing regulations.

Pole and Troll Zones
To improve fishing and protect grass flats, two Pole & Troll Zones have been established in Mosquito Lagoon. (See Map) The zones are delineated with buoys. Within the zones, internal combustion engines must be shut off (except in posted channels) and vessels drafting more than 12 inches at rest must not enter. Vessels may be propelled by a non-motorized power source such as drifting, push poles, paddles, etc. Electric trolling may be used through the zones. Boats may operate internal combustion engines only in the posted channels within the Pole & Troll Zones.
There is so much to write about The Mosquito Lagoon, I will go into depth on each of these subjects in the future.
See you soon at Oak Hill Fish Camp.
