The most i've payed is $1, although some communities around here have yearly fees (around $150) with unlimited launches. The vast majority of lakes here in FL are free.

The only lake in San Diego county charges $5 to launch and then $5 per person for water contact. Since it's drinking water the money supposedly goes to pay for the extra treatment.

$5 per launch, or $40 for the year for Sammamish. Most of the lakes around WA are free with the exception of Lake Washington and Sammamish.

Elkhorn Station in Yolo County on the Sacto is 6 bucks - a year's pass is something like 70. I think it's 8 at the ramps in Sacto County. The place we go at the north end of Shasta (Crystal Cove?) supposedly charges but noone is there to collect.

Lake Mead is 20.00 a year for the vehicle and 20.00 a year for the boat.

They just started charging a few years ago...

Jake:

What ramp are you using. Their is one on Eagle Mountain taht is $25 a year for unlimited drops or $45 a year for three boats unlimited.
I think I know where you are putting in, not only is it expensive it is also pretty dangerous and narrow. I tore up a prop trying to get out of the ramp by the Possiums Lodge when the lake was a little low.

The two small lakes we ride at charge two-dollars to launch. We get a season pass for 24 dollars that's good for both lakes.

I'll second what Phaeton said - most all Oregon Lakes free. Fern Ridge (aka the "Ditch") near Eugene charges $3/day from Memorial Day thru Labor Day or $30 for a season pass. However, as money allocations to these public waterways get slimmer, I bet we start to see more access fees in the upcoming years...

In UT the state parks are $9 a day. Or you can buy a state park season pass of $65, which I do. It's a pretty good deal considering there are three lakes w/in half hour from me.

Randy:

If you go past Lakeview and turn down to go to Porkies, first left after Dosier Cove, the ramp is on the left, folow the signs. It is a one lane ramp, but it is very deep and has a great dock.

I ride out their quit a bit, have not been out much lately, too long of a honey do list. How is the water temp? I may try it again this weekend or so if it warms back up.

When you pull out of the ramp by Porkies, look to your left and you will see a house will a Yellow X-star in the lift, that is my parents house. If you see us out on the dock or in the yard with the dogs pull up.

Randy I looked again and it is $250 a year not $25. I guess the sign was dirty when I saw it last. I have found if you go in the evening when they are closed or on Sunday they do not charge for use.
Sorry about that, I guess I need to read a little better.
When are you guys planning on going again, I'll have to unwinterise the boat but that only takes about 30min or so.....

I go to Don Pedro in Calif. I "think" its $10 per visit, but I can't remember for sure 'cause I buy a yearly pass. Cheaper to buy the pass than to pay the daily rate since I go almost every week.

These ramps you pay to use better be good ones with a tap close by and preferably with a dock. There are no ramps that i know of in Australia that you have to pay to use. I doubt there are any.But most of them are just ramps no taps wish they had taps as most of the time its salt water your in. Actually i have had to pay to use a ramp once at Appletree bay that was only because it,s in a national park, That ramp was 4\5 lanes wide nice angle and had taps and a pontoon.

IT ALL GOOD
