New floating Kayak launch open in 2016.
The ramp down to the floating dock is very steep. A loaded kayak on a dolly can be tricky. This is a very nice place to avoid competing with power boat launch just down the road.

Single space parking for 12 vehicles. Trailer parking is a challenge. You have to back your trailer over the stop block and into the grass.

I did not see a restroom close by.

No Fees

  • Launch Point
