Where can I launch my boat?

There is a boat ramp at the marina which is for slip holders only.  Annual contract lessees receive a key to the gate and may use it anytime for their boat during the contract season.   Friends and extended family must use the public boat ramps for their boats due to limited trailer parking at Lake Ocoee Marina.  The U.S. Forest Service operates and maintains 3 public ramps on Parksville Lake.  The launch fee is $3.00.
