I'm new to Florida by way of Colorado. Was gonna take the bass boat out to Poinsett and the only ramp I found is off of sr520. Wondering if you can access the lake from this ramp? Any help would be appreciated. Looks like you have to go under a bridge...

Boat Ramps as shown on the map for this lake. There appears to be one at either end of the lake. :

James G. Bourbeau Memorial Park
Located at 8195 West Highway-SR 520, Cocoa Setting to the north of the Lone Cabbage Fish Camp, the ramp is part of James G. Bourbeau Memorial Park. It is a staging area for fishing tournaments. There is a 2-lane boat ramp and dock, restrooms, a mid-size pavilion with a barbeque grill, and parking for 100 cars and boat trailers.

Lake Poinsett North boat ramp
Concrete ramp.

Looks like a good place for Bass fishing. I'll have to check it out .

Tried it this morning JJ was not able to get out due to low water unfortunately had to jump out of the boat and push it off some sand. Their is a ramp right across the street I'm gonna try tomorrow.

Thanks for the info
