Public boat landings and boat ramps on lakes in IA.

Expand your access to additional fishing spots. Reach fishing waters not accessible from shore. Use these boat ramps, launches and landings for easy boating access. Listed here are public boat launch ramps and boat landings, free to the public.

Other launching options may be found at marinas, resorts, parks, campgrounds and RV parks, which may, or may not, require a fee to launch and/or park. Some lakes may also have primitive areas available for launching, often dependent on water level. Some lakes may also have a designated launch area for portage of canoes, kayak and other car-top boats. Always seek permission before using private boat launch ramps. Boating allows access for fishing all the lake, much of which may not be available to anglers fishing from the bank.
