Squatters Take Over Florida’s ‘Meth Island’ – Build Treehouse

A group of squatters has taken over a small island near the Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange, Florida.

Now, several Florida law enforcement agencies are working together to remove the squatters from an island they have outfitted with an elaborate treehouse, a “welcome center,” and a trampoline.

Law enforcement posted “TRESPASS NOTICE You are ordered to vacate the island within 48 hours” signs to warn the squatters to stay away.

According to a video posted by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, the island is filled with various handmade wooden structures, including an elaborate four-story treehouse and other structures made out of what appears to be old lumber and tree branches.

Squatters Take Over “Meth Island”

The sheriff’s office is assisting members of the Port Orange Police Department, South Daytona Police Department, and Florida Fish and Wildlife on Friday by posting no trespassing signs at the squatter camp.

The island is located near the Dunlawton Bridge in Port Orange, with social media commenters dubbing it “good ole meth island” and “Gilligan’s Island.”

“Parts of these islands have become overrun with campsites, trash, wooden structures, towers, even a trampoline. For everyone who enjoys the beauty of this area, this is one step toward bringing it back to nature,” the Volusia Sheriff’s Office posted to Facebook.

The campsite appeared vacant when law enforcement came to the island and posted the no trespassing signs on Friday.

The video shows the squatters have decorated the island by hanging old license plates on structures, installing a trampoline, and a sign directing visitors to the island’s “welcome center.”

“It’s pretty impressive, honestly. The number of structures has exponentially grown over the past few years,” one law enforcement official is heard saying in the video.

Facebook commenters debated the trespassing signs, with some arguing the island is a “great spot to visit” while others called for the island to be cleaned up. One commenter said the area feels unsafe after nightfall.

“There’s no sanitation on the island; it’s a garbage pit,” one commenter wrote.
