Crossing the Volusia Bar in Lake George

One of the rare spots where a boater can directly reach Lake George without having to cross the Volusia Bar, the Volusia Wharf Boat Ramp is an unpaved ramp leading into a dredged channel through the bar. Swing right, and you can head upriver into Astor; go straight to head into the shallows of Lake George.
