Popular Village Creek boat ramp on Mississippi River closes August 1

Lansing - The Village Creek public boat ramp, south of Lansing, previously scheduled to close July 5 will now be closed Aug. 1 through Oct. 31, 2018 for improvements. 

Improvements include paving the roadway and boat ramp parking, installing a vault restroom, building sidewalks and adding ramp extensions to improve ramp access during low water conditions.

This is a joint project between Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries and State Parks Bureaus, and the Marine Fuel Tax program.

Alternate Iowa ramps include New Albin Army Road, north of Lansing, and Heytman’s Landing, south of Lansing. There are many ramps on the Wisconsin side of the river.

The Big Slough and Winneshiek Slough landings are directly across the Lansing Bridge in Wisconsin. Blackhawk Park area has multiple ramps and Dairyland Power access south of Genoa has plenty of parking.
