Attention boaters: Boat launch ends abruptly
Attention boaters: The boat launch at Ike Kinswa State Park (on Mayfield Lake) ends abruptly due to material washing out at the base of the concrete ramp and leaving a 10-inch drop. Signs are in place indicating where the drop off occurs. Be aware that backing a boat trailer beyond the sign could damage your boat and trailer. We recommend that boaters do a visual check before launching.
Washington State Parks is working to obtain the necessary permitting to extend and improve the boat launch. Tacoma Public Utilities will be drawing down Mayfield Lake in mid-September. We hope to complete the project then, provided permits are obtained in time.
