Public Boat Ramp Information

​A guide to ramps on the Highland Lakes


protectthehighlandlakes.pngUnder normal conditions, getting a boat into LCRA water isn't a problem. Back it down the ramp and get it afloat. The problem is when conditions are abnormal such as in a drought, when water levels are low, or during a flood, when they are too high.

Below are the minimum water levels for launching boats from LCRA ramps on the Highland Lakes. Lakes are often closed to recreational boaters during severe floods.

The Highland Lakes can greatly fluctuate during the year. So make sure you check the latest lake level data (see box at right) and the information below when planning a boat trip.
