I pay as little as $10 and as much as $20. There is a public ramp next to the private ramp I use at the marina. The public ramp is $3. Now the waiting time for the $3 ramp can be as much as 2 hours......I guess you get what you pay for.

$4 for parking only; great 4 lane ramp; they just put up a sign that limits trucks to 45';when they asked about my 68' long set up I just pointed out that the truck was less than 45'

When we lived on Long Island, Ny you had to buy a township permit for around a $100 bucks and I think you could launch at your township ramp for free. But if you were from another township, if I remember right they charged around $2 per foot to launch. It was over $40 to launch my 22 foot Crownline. Glad I don't live there anymore. It's free to launch any size boat herer in the Houston = Clear Lake = Galveston Bay area. Good launches and parking.

Most ramps at Lake Cumberland are $5 up to 35 feet and $1 a foot over. I usually just pay $5 and a good cigar. State park ramps are free but parking sucks. Old hickory is $5 at private ramps and free at public state ramps.

Hammond is free if you are a Fib. Michigan City pitiful launch is $10 or a $100 for the season. I do the season and get my moneys worth and then some!

since you were just wondering.........
sounds like $20 was cheap, read these posts, there are guys paying $40 and $50 i heard of a marina on my lake charging $30 for triple axle boats! sounds like $20 to launch any small boat and $40 to launch a big triple axle is par for a good ramp with parking and other amenities, hmmmmm
