The boat ramps at McIntosh Woods State Park on Clear Lake will close on Monday, June 18, to allow workers to install concrete pad extensions to eliminate scour holes that developed at the end of the ramps. The ramps will reopen on June 22.
Similar repairs will take place to the ramps at Ventura Access (Lynne Lorenzen Park) beginning June 25. The Ventura Access ramps will reopen June 29.
The problem occurred when scour holes developed at the end of the ramps from boats powering on to trailers. If the trailer backs off the concrete pad, the wheels will fall in to the hole dropping the trailer frame on to the ramp. Boat ramps at the Ritz, Clear Lake Boats and City Park will remain open.
