The New Jersey DEP maintains a concrete boat ramp at Byram, Delaware River Mile 156.1, located on Route 29, 3.4 miles north of Stockton.

The Delaware & Raritan Canal State Park charges a fee for use of the ramp. Boaters, canoeist, kayakers, and personal watercraft owners are required to have a boat launch permit to put in or take out at this site, as well as the Kingwood, Bulls Island, and Fireman’s Eddy access points.

The permit costs $60 per season for state residents and $80 for nonresidents. Daily fee is $12 for a resident and $20 for nonresident. Fees are in effect from Memorial Day through Labor Day. There are restrictions on boating and canoeing in the canal. Only electric motors, car top launch, and canoes are permitted, which, can be rented from private concessionaires in Griggstown and Princeton.
