Cedron Creek Park is Corps of Engineering park open only from April 1 until September 30 each year.  It is a controlled access park.  There is no Day Use area in this park and generally, the gatekeepers will not let you in unless you camp overnight or are launching a boat.  This is an excellent park.  The front area of the park features shaded camp sites and great views of the lake. The back area of the park is more sheltered from the winds and there are campsites with great easy access areas to fish from the bank on Camp Creek which offers good catfish, bass and white bass opportunities.

These photos were taken on two different dates, August 22, 2011 and February 4, 2012. The lake level on August 22, 2011 was 522 feet or 13 feet low. The February 4, 2012 photos were taken when the lake level was 527 feet 7 1/2 inches or 5 feet 4 1/2 inches low. As of March 14, 2012 the lake was just a little over normal pool of 533 feet. You can use your judgment to estimate the ramp usefulness at the current time.

 Ramp at 13 feet low or Lake Level of 522 feet:

The Park boat ramp is CLOSED by the Corps at this level. You could hand launch a small boat, raft or kayak there, but that’s it. The ramp is a two lane Corps built concrete ramp.  It is an excellent ramp with an adjustable boat dock.  The Cedron Creek area offers great fishing very close to the ramp. Parking at the ramp is adequate, though not necessarily plentiful. It’s a tough ramp in a South or South West wind.  It is a ramp with great access to very good bass, striper and white bass in the Cedron Creek area.

We really like this ramp when the wind is not up and out of the south….   it is close to great fishing.
