Nassau County Starts Winter Storage Service for Boats and RVs
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano announces that for the first time the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums will provide winter storage for boats and recreational vehicles at Wantagh Park Marina and Battle Row Campground, respectively.
“This initiative is part of my larger effort to expand the menu of services and programs our Parks Department provides the public at no new expense to taxpayers,” says Mangano. “In fact, these initiatives allow us to generate revenue on behalf of the taxpayers by expanding the use of public assets. It is truly a win-win situation.”
At Wantagh Park, the marina will be available for in-water storage from December through March with a seasonal charge of $35 per boat-foot for Nassau County residents with Leisure Passes and $45 per boat-foot for non-Leisure Pass holders. Boat-owners must provide their own bubbler system and proof of insurance, with residents being given first priority for spaces. Wantagh Park is located at 1 King Road; for information, call (516) 571-7460.
Battle Row Campground in Old Bethpage will offer onsite storage for recreational vehicles beginning November through Spring (call for final date), with a monthly charge of $75 for Nassau County residents with Leisure Passes and $100 for non-Leisure Pass holders. Battle Row, which is open year-round, is located on Claremont Road; for information, call (516) 572-8690. The County’s second campground at Nickerson Beach Park in Lido (516-571-7700) is open from April through November.
