Description: This 9.2 acre boat ramp was initially developed by the Army Corps of Engineers. In January, 1999, the boat ramp was extended to access the reservoir at winter low pool, through a grant for the Oregon State Marine Board and the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife.
This boater's access is located on the north shore of Green Peter Reservoir approximately 10 miles from the intersection of Highway 20 and Quartzville Road.
*The floating rest room is provided for the water enthusiasts during the months of April through the end of October.
