Please use caution when launching or retrieving your vessel. The ramp surface is broken up and there is a large drop off. Signage will be posted to mark the end of the ramp surface. Backing down beyond the sign is not recommended.  DEEP is working to repair the ramp.
An alternate ramp is located in Squantz Pond State Park in New Fairfield.
