North Causeway Boat Ramp

It offers overnight parking adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway. It is mostly a spot for boaters and their trailers. In total the parking area is approximately 5 acres. 1. 5 acres are paved, and the remainder is grass. Palm trees mostly, so not much shade. We were in our Class C Motorhome, and since boat parking is $10 for 24 hours, we bellied-up and paid the $10. There is an acre that appears to be free parking for cars and vans, maybe travel trailer and motorhomes. Boat ramp restroom facilities are open 24/7. <br />We stayed here on 6-9-2018 for one-night parking in the grass area close to the blacktopped parking lot and restrooms. Yes, this is a free area. Since we had our kayaks, we elected to pay the boat parking fee of $10. This location is approximately 1.5 miles from the beach. Plenty of eateries of all stripes are near. I-95 is about 5 to 6 miles to the west. Easy on and off blacktop highway. The blacktopped parking lot has light fixtures. <br />My iPhone coordinates read 29.153 N and -80.556 W. I had to adjust the coordinates associated with this database because it had the red marker 15 miles out in the ocean.<br /><br />Jan 2024: We parked overnight here on 1/27/2024. Two city workers were there servicing the kiosk which wasn’t working. They told us overnight camping is prohibited by the city for any paid parking lots within Smyrna Beach. There are NO signs posted to let anyone know this. We mentioned this to them and he was a little rude when he said they “refrain from sign pollution”. It’s a busy place until around 10:30 PM on weekends from what we saw.
