We have tried to only show places that most people can use, but there may be access points shown by accident that are on shared private property.
Be sure to follow the links and find out if permission is needed to use any
access location that is new to you. Please let us know if you find someplace we
should not be showing. And of course, let us know of new places to add!.
Remember after and before using our waterways
Drain and Dry everything that comes in contact with the water before going near a different body of water. This is to avoid spreading invasive plants and animals.
This includes but is not
limited to your boat, paddles, PFD, rod, reel, line, tackle, trailer, car wheels, toys, shoes, clothes, waders, bailer, your children, friends and you.
Thanks for helping protect our waterways!
