They have a ranger office there. Maybe you could call them?

Round Valley Recreation Area Mailing Address:

This is the info I got at the following page:

Boating
A public boat launch is located north of the day use area, which is regulated by the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife. Sailboats, canoes, kayaks, motor boats (up to 10 horsepower) and three chambered inflatable vessels are permitted on the reservoir and must be registered through Motor Vehicle if over 12 feet in length. NJ Boating Rules & Regulations pertain to Round Valley Reservoir at all times. Each person must have on a wearable Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD). Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

A parking permit must be obtained through the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife to access the reservoir at the public boat launch, or a copy of your fishing, hunting or trapping license must be placed on the dash board of your vehicle.

I believe if you use the ramp, a ramp user permit, or a copy of your fishing license made viewable on your dashboard or rear window is required.
Then again, with the yak, you can probally launch to the left or right of the ramp and avoid using it all together.
Go to Spruce Run and fish for some hybrids, once you catch one especially in the kayak, you'll never fish for trout again....[up]

Just an FYI Round Valley gets extremely dangerous wake during storms. It will be tough to control that Kayak in some of the weather I have experienced on the Reservoir. In fact it's so bad that they have towers with sirens to clear the reservoir during storms. A kayak may be difficult on round valley on a stormy day.

Is Merril Creek as bad as Round Valley, when it gets crappy out? And also what is the depth of Merril Creek? [confused]

merrill creek goes over 180 in spots. its deeper than round valley but not by much. round gets about 160 in the back by the drop off



and no I do not live up there. and yes that water is nasty as hell...u cant even see 3 inches down in the water. The only reason I go there is for pike season just after the ice goes away I wont be back till then
