Boat Dock/Ramp - HAWK SPRINGS


Hawk Springs State Recreation Area is very popular reservoir that offers a variety of water-based recreation activities. Jet skiing, boating and fishing are all major attractions of this park.


  • A boat launching facility & ramp is available immediately as you enter the park.
  • The boat ramp area does have a floating dock that is available for boaters to use as they unload and load their boat trailers.

The boat ramp and dock are available as water levels allow, usually when the ice goes off the lake in the spring until the fall months.


All vehicles must have the appropriate Daily Use and Overnight Camping permits. A self-pay canister is located at the park’s entrance.
