BF = Barrier-free Boat Ramp.

Sites have a boarding dock or means of wheelchair access to boats.

BR = Boat Ramp.

Sites have a defined public boat launching facility which may or may not have parking.

BW = Barrier-free Wilderness Access.

Sites have a firm surface to gain access to the water, but no special piers or ramps.

NW = Navigable Water.

Navigable access is provided by the presence of an inlet or outlet stream which furnishes adequate boat access to a lake. A small stream not large enough to float a boat does not provide effective navigable access.

P = Barrier-free Pier.

Designed to accommodate wheelchairs.

R = Roadside.

Sites do not include any access developments. Public roads with a marked right-of-way extending to the water provide a limited degree of access.

T = Walk-in Trail.

These access sites are partially developed, excluding a boat ramp, and are entirely within public lands.


A few counties do not have detailed access information. For those waters marked with an “x,” some type of access, other than navigable water access, is available. Regulations governing boat usage are effective on certain lakes and are posted at the public access sites.
