The Oasis Marinas portfolio has reached 40 amazing properties, over 6,500 wet & dry slips under management, and hundreds of RV pads, spanning from the Northeast, Lake Erie, the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac, and down to the coast of Florida.

We are thrilled to be able to showcase our remarkable operations at Grande Dunes Marina.”
