Lewes Public Boat Ramp

River Access Point

blank dot

City-operated boat ramp in Lewes, Deleware. It is situated near the military facility U.S. Coast Guard - Marine Safety Detachment Lewes and Coast Guard Pier. The ramp is also close to the University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean and Environment, and north of Lewes Unleashed Dog Park. There is no fee to launch from the Lewes Boat Ramp. Please do not park vehicles in spaces designated for trailers. The launch area can be very busy during peak fishing season (usually April-October), with most traffic in early morning and mid-afternoon. For boaters launching from Canalfront Park, parking meters are in operation seasonally. There is a daily park entry fee for Tower Road (part of Delaware Seashore State Park), and costs vary for vehicles registered in Delaware and out-of-state. To avoid the daily fee, you can purchase an annual Delaware State Parks pass.
