New Cedar Creek Boat Ramp near Slaughter Beach to open June 8
SLAUGHTER BEACH (June 7, 2012) – The new Cedar Creek Boat Ramp facility near Slaughter Beach will be open for public use at 6 a.m. Friday, June 8, the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife announced today.
The facility features eight 16-foot wide concrete launch lanes, five full-floatation boarding docks, one full-floatation courtesy dock and a large parking area. The old ramp closed for construction of the new facility in late November 2011.
This project is part of DNREC’s Bayshore Initiative, a landscape approach to restore and protect fish and wildlife habitat, increase volunteer participation in habitat stewardship projects, enhance low-impact outdoor recreation and ecotourism opportunities, and promote associated environmentally compatible economic development.
