Spent a lovely late afternoon with friends. wonderful breeze, quite water and just the right number of friendly boats, private and commercial. buffalo looks beautiful from the water level. A trip up the river to the silos is an additional bonus.

Much better than it was! Great place to keep your boat, launch your boat or just come spend a day at the water!

Great spot to launch your boat! Plenty of parking and lots of loading/unloading ramps! Can get a bit crowded on Holiday weekends but what boat launch doesnt get busy at those times?
