LANSING, Iowa - The Village Creek public boat ramp, south of Lansing, will be closed July 5 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.

The project 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.
