The McIntosh Woods State Park boat ramp will close for renovation immediately after the Memorial Day weekend.

Beginning May 30, the ramp and parking lot will be closed to the public. Renovation of the ramp is expected to take approximately three weeks, weather permitting.

The nearby beach, playground and restrooms will remain open throughout the construction, but must be accessed via a hiking path from campground. The McIntosh shelter will be closed until June 16.

During the renovation, boaters can access the lake at Ventura Access, Clear Lake Seawall or the Ritz access on the south shore.
