 Brownsville City Ramp

Brownsville City Ramp:

Located below Hwy 259 Bridge, this single lane concrete ramp is usable by all trailered watercraft. There is a paved parking lot, with security lights, for more than 25 vehicles. This ramp is located about 1.4 miles downstream of Lock and Dam #6. The water at this site is pooled up and has plenty of depth for operating gas motors, but beware of underwater obstructions.
