    This report is for the launch ramp at the North end of the lake, adjacent to the campground. Paved ramp, dock on one lane, not real steep, adequate room for maneuvering. Sheltered, located in a nice cove, but not real deep (I have a 21' sailboat with a 4' draft, and a swing keel) - 2-3 feet in some places. Note: no gas motors! I use an electric trolling motor. The ramp and parking require a Northwest Forest Pass, fee box at the ramp, $5/day. Area is mostly used for canoes and kayaks, since no gas motors are allowed at time of this report. The ramp area might get a bit crowded during busy times - hand launched craft operators typically park at the end of the ramp and then load or unload the craft and all their gear, which might take longer than launching a trailered boat. Some are courteous and launch, and move out of the way to clear the ramp.
