Location: 525 N. Lake Street
The City has two boat launches. One is located in Veterans Park adjacent to the marina and our North Boyne launch is located about 4 blocks north of Veterans Park.
The Veterans Park Launch is suitable for smaller boats approximately 24' & less depending on lake water levels, type of boat, etc. You should always check the ramp prior to use.
The North Boyne Launch has a long dock (when the extensions are in) and deep water. It is suitable for large vessels and sailboats with deep drafts.
During the summer, attendants are generally on duty from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Friday - Sunday and during the holidays. Monday - Thursday the launch will be watched by our on duty marina attendant who is located at the lighthouse in the marina next to Veterans Park, but will be keeping an eye on the boat launch as well. Please call or radio them if you need assistance launching or pulling out. They will be happy to meet you there and help. 231-582-7361 or vhf channel 16
The fee for both ramps are the same. (See fees listed below)
