This boat ramp is a great put-in that keeps you away from the no-access wildlife refuge areas in the winter, and closer to the Salt Creek to the northeast. Many paddlers do a round-trip bridge-to-bridge route from this point, paddling up the creek to the first bridge (N 2550 East Road). The creek is very clear of debris, especially after rains. It is not a difficult paddle upstream, and the bridge by the put-in makes for an easy landmark if you come back after dark.

From IDNR:
"The upper arms of the lake are no wake areas and portions are restricted to electric trolling motors only. There are no horsepower limitations in the lake's main basin, however. Sailboating is popular. When the wind gets up, the lake can be very rough. Small watercraft are urged to stick to the north fork arm of Salt Creek on rough days. There are six public boat ramps and one canoe launch. All IDNR ramps are now equipped with wheelchair accessible boat docks."

"The park land actually belongs to AmerGen which operates a nuclear power plant in the area. The State of Illinois has operated the park since 1978 through a long-term lease with the utility company."
