Check with the village of Empire. They have a ramp at the north end of the city park that is composed of metal mesh sections that interlink. They pull it prior winter for storage, but if it is in that cuts the distance down considerably. This is a shallow draft boat launch site.

Heading up the 13th of Sept. Heard the mouth is impassable. Planning on the run from Frankfort. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!!

It seems like almost any time I am up there at the park in Empire, there is a decent westerly or southwesterly. Anything over about 10mph and you have some pretty decent waves that you will be launching into. Seen many boats attempt and then decide not to try and others not even make an attempt. There is nothing to act as a break wall, so you have to pick your days.

That said, I did watch a guy put a pontoon in there last year. This year (last week) you would have been backing into 2.5 footers.
