Boat ramp

Post By: ratdog      Posted: 4/9/2018 9:37:45 AM     Points: 149    
What is the layout of the boat ramp and dock. Can I launch my boat from a 37ft motorhome and is there any sandy beaches to tie it up at night.

I believe all boats must be off the water for a post inspection by 8pm. I could be wrong on the time but think that's what it was last year. As for the ramp yes you could do it but it's a pretty steep and short ramp so I don't know if you would make it back up. There is a dock to tie up to around the corner from the ramp but it's just for short term use.

There is a boat dock to the side. We were up there a few weeks ago. The boat dock is not useable when we were there. We had to run the boat up on shore after launching.
If u dont have 2 people launching, one for the boat and one for the vehicle, it is a major pain to launch a boat there if u dont have a partner.

Does anyone know the weekend ramp hours? I have a seal but don't recall if there is a drop box. Headed out on Saturday

No drop box got to be off the water by 830 pm,

Any idea when it opens? They don't answer the phone ever out there and it doesn't say on the state website

When I was up there a month ago, the nice young lady inspector said they open 1/2 hour before sunrise. So about 5am right now. Also, they want everyone off the water by 7:30pm so they can close up and go home by 8pm.
