Boggy Creek Resort and RV Park, formerly known as East Lake Fish Camp, has been sold to Tampa-based mobile home park operator Mark J. “Jamie” Sullivan for $10 million, according to Growth Spotter.

Sullivan, CEO of Summit Communities, purchased the property through an affiliate called East Toho LLC.

The RV park, which is filled with oak tree canopies and pine trees, has over 250 RV sites, cabins, a community pool,  a large restaurant, and 150-slip marina which directly accesses East Lake Tohopekaliga.

The fish camp, as it still is often referred to by long time Osceola residents, was owned for many years by Waldo Morris who passed away in 2020. Morris attempted to sell the property to homebuilders as the final phase of the Marina Bay Planned Development, but the sale didn’t come to fruition.

According to Growth Spotter, Pulte had a purchase contract in 2016 and rezoned the resort with a plan of developing a “high-end” boating community. However, the builder decided against the deal due to concerns over costs of removing a private wastewater treatment facility, and other existing infrastructure.

In 2019 Ashton Woods put Boggy Creek Resort and RV Park under contract and attempted to gain approval for a PD amendment for their plan of 429 homes with townhomes, bungalows and homes on different lot sizes under the county’s Low-Density Residential zoning.

Osceola County Commissioners rejected the plan unanimously that was submitted by Ashton Woods.

Sullivan obtained a minor PD amendment making clear the kind of improvements that can be made to the property if he maintains the RV park and marina as an interim use. According to Rj Whidden Vice President John Adams, the PD will allow Sullivan to operate the existing facilities until they are displaced by new residential development.
