Default Lake Travis Boat Ramps

Any ramps launchable there? We're hearing bad stuff...

We're comning in July with four boats: 18 Donzi, 30 Donzi, 30 Sonic and 42 Sonic. Emerald Point says no ramp there, water's too low. Said nearest ramp was a possible Mansfield Dam ramp?

Thanks!!

Jim

Mansfield dam is good till its gets down to 635.

we are at 660 right now, about 21 feet down. Its not bad, you just need to know where the low spots are.

Can we get a break in Texas? No rain for forever & 100+ for the next few week. Reminds me of 1998-1999.

Use the ramp at the Mansfield Dam. It's on hwy 620.

Most of the docks at Carlos'N Charlies are "dry". It is very difficult to go there by boat. Just bring plenty of food and drink in your boat and stay in Devil's Cove.

Clay.

The LTPA has a poker run listed on their site in July at Charlos and Charlies. If the lake is down are there other marina's to go to? Have you done this run before and how many boats usually are there?
