Recommended Boat Ramp:
Lee's County Park Marina- The majority of the tournaments are run out of Lee's County Park Marina. This ramp is as good as any. There is a launch fee- not sure what it is now. There is ample parking for a 50 boat tournament. There are at least two ramps and might be a third- not sure. Lees Park is located in the South East section of the lake in Van Every Cove. It is off of Howard Blvd in Mt. Arlington.
