Important Notices

Use Extreme Caution at Boat Ramps in the Coastal PlainDue to heavy rains and flood waters, boaters are urged to use extreme caution at Department ramps in the Coastal Plain. Parking lots may be flooded and river levels high. Flood waters may contain dangerous debris and hazardous currents

The access permit requirement for Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) owned or managed boat ramps enacted by the 2020 General Assembly (effective January 1, 2021) has been suspended until July 1, 2022. During this time, DWR will work with stakeholders to further determine the best means for the construction and maintenance of these recreational facilities.
