Improvements made to Point Washington boat ramp

July 22, 2011

Renovations include six new parking stalls

The Point Washington boat ramp on North County Highway 395 at Choctawhatchee Bay is now open following scheduled improvements aimed to benefit fishermen and boaters. The South Walton facility now has designated truck and boat trailer parking featuring six parking stalls, including one designated ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). The previous ramp was completely removed, and a new one constructed, with new loading docks on either side. The project also included the addition of a washout station and storm water improvements. Utility Solutions of Crestview, Fla. completed the project within budget in under 120 days.

The Point Washington boat ramp is located on the north end of CR 395 and is maintained by the South Walton Tourist Development Council’s (TDC) beach maintenance division.  For more information, please contact (850) 267-4578.

    1. The parking stalls are too short for most truck and boat trailers. They require parallel parking (with a trailer behind you?)unless you’re next in line. I guess thats all the room they had and its ok if you’re going on a week day when its not crowded. (only four or five parking places)Thats the only complaint I have, just not enough parking or turning around room. Other than that the ramp is nice and I really like the wash station to rinse my boat off on the way out.
