Directions: For directions, please visit this map.
Use: Wide boat ramp suitable for larger vessels. There are active workboats in the area and a shipping channel. The water is open and wide, and paddlers should exercise caution at this location. Paddling during high winds is not recommended. Paddlers should be mindful of tides in terms of both paddling and for driving purposes. Many roadways can be flooded during high tides, as marsh abuts many stretches of roadway from the Blackwater NWR south to Crocheron. Paddlers will see the Hooper Island Light, an active lighthouse in the Chesapeake Bay, on the right while driving on Crocheron Rd. toward the boat ramp.
Depth: Shipping channel with active workboats nearby.
Parking: Yes. Paved area with irregular, unmarked spaces.
Boat Ramp or Pier: Yes
