Default Legion Park ramp in Destin

I heard it was closed a while back. Anybody know if it is open again? That ramp can handle a bay boat right? Thanks.

Bay boat isn't gonna happen at that ramp, mo betta you go look for yourself. Wave runners have a hard time.

PM Cudacris, he uses that ramp.

Desert Eagle,
What size/type boat do you have? I haven't been to the ramp in a while but it seemed deep enough for a bay boat at least. Maybe I'm overestimating the depth and underestimating my draft!!

I have a small jon boat and it's a pain in the butt to get it in the water. Regardless of the tides I've been hitting, I have to roll my trailer off the end of the ramp (where it drops off) and push it off my bunks. I wouldn't recommend launching a bay boat there.

Its not deep enough to submerge the trailer there, even at high tide. Use Hogtown or Joes Bayou.

I launch my kayak there alot and it is a tough ramp for a boat. I have only seen small boats launch there (jonboats, floundering rigs).
