Depth ranges were taken on July 27, 2023. Please note that depth levels will change as water levels change and boat launch users are responsible for checking the water before using. Use at your own risk.

Due to the water outfall in the channel, this is not a safe winter access point, due to unstable ice, for the lake and is closed during the winter months.
