    Question So has the South Side boat launch ramp been fixed properly last summer?

    Did they extend the ramp so that long and deep trailers will no longer drop off the end? Any deficiencies or hazards? Are there 2 lanes? When are the courtesy docks usually in?

    I took my boat out there last Fall and had no problems with it. Both lanes were open and the courtesy dock was in place.

    It may be a little early for the dock to be in, but you could just walk up the path to board right above the marine on the wall. Worked for me last year

    Good info here guys. I'm slipped up in Cheswick and looking for watering holes, ice stations and fuel stops in pool #3 with public docks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am at cheswick as well. Have been in pool 3 for 5 years now. The only fuel in the pool is lighthouse landing. Sometimes logans ferry has fuel it depends on if he puts his pump in or not. I'm unaware of any drinking or eating establishments dockside. The only full service marina is lighthouse landing Monday-Friday I do believe.

    Has anyone launched a long trailer there yet this spring? I ran my trailer off the end of the ramp before it was repaired last year. Has the ramp been successfully extended for those of us with big boats? I know there were some concerns that this winter's flooding might wash out the base under the ramp. Is the courtesy dock in yet? Anyone?

    I launched a week ago. Not sure on the length. I make sure I stay shallow. No docks in yet. Sharpsburg dock was in.
