St. Johns Marina is the closest ramp to the downtown area. The ramp is used primarily on weekends by boaters not traveling far from downtown on the river, either for fishing or cruising. During city events the ramp reaches beyond full capacity in parking and launching. Overflow parking may be utilized under the Acosta Bridge. The ramp is not ADA accessible due to lack of floating docks and barriers.

 

Strong current, some shoaling near ramp; high vessel traffic.

Bert Maxwell ramp is a well used ramp for local fishermen and provides the best direct access to the lower Trout River. The ramp was improved in 1993 with new bulkheads, however the entrance channel has silted in considerably and is difficult for larger boats at low tide. There is a large parking area but, because of this ramp's popularity, the lot is often full on weekends.
