In Mentor Lagoon's, $20 in and $20 out.....unless you do it before they get to their little shack!

Fairport Harbor ramp is $10.

Grand River Marina $7 but nothing larger than 31'.

They're all over the place. Mentor is a total rip off for our area. Just the big city giving it to the little guy once again.

$10 at Sunset Acquatic, it's free at the municipal ramp, but you have to pay for hourly parking, unless you have a city parking pass already. The municipal ramp sucks though.

Local ramp at the fish camp is 3.00 for 24 hours. Till last year is was a dollar.
Another ramp at a county park is 5.00 and parking is severly limited. Park stops accepting boaters when the parking lot fills.
We do have a couple free ramps at municipal facilities too.

The Columbia River near my house is free. Lake Chelan 40 minutes is $5. Paid $15 for Lake Shasta but discovered my Brother gave wrong figure and kept paying the bigger boat fee. Forget the name of Park above the dam at Red Bluff that I go on Sac river, but its free.

$15 for a single or twin-axle trailer at Hammond, but $30 for a triple!! Does that make any sense? Then again, Hammond also used to charge me $30 to launch two jet skis on one BS.
