$5 at my marina, but it`s free for me, since I lease an RV spot there year-round.

No ramp fees at public ramps on our river. The ramps suck though as the docks are short and your putting in in 4-7mph current. Also parking sucks.
My city owned marina is $350 for the year for a dry storage parking place and unlimited ramp usage.

Mostly state ramps in Florida, and they're all free.

Remember when there was no such thing as a launch fee?

Marina by me is $3, honor system.

Only paid in Texas when it was a private ramp all else were free and same for all other public ramps either inland or coastal from Port Isabel Tx to Key West. State parks had their admissions.

between 5 and 20 bucks here to launch the 38. most of the time no one is tending the ramp and they have no drop box so its usually free. there is a strap hoist i used that was 45 bucks but it saved me well over that in gas from where i was going to put in.
