  • Woods Ferry Boat Ramp Unavailable

    Woods Ferry Boat Ramp is not accessible at this time to launch a boat from. The storms over the summer brought an unusual amount of silt down the Broad River and the boat ramp is heavily silted in and boaters are unable to access the Broad River from Chester County side at Woods Ferry. We’ve tried removing the silt utilizing heavy equipment the district owns but it is not large enough to handle the work. Our equipment is too small to reach out far enough into the river to remove the remaining silt that is blocking the ramp.  The closest other available ramp is South Sandy Boat Ramp off of Highway 72 or the Broad River Boat Ramp in Union County.
