Boat Ramp Replacement Begins at Morgan Falls on Chattahoochee

By Georgia DNR, Wildlife Resources Division

Published: May 9, 2011

Boaters and anglers that frequent the Morgan Falls Dam portion of the Chattahoochee River near Sandy Springs should expect to see construction for replacement of the existing boat ramp beginning today, Mon. May 9, 2011.  The new ramp should be completed in early June.

The area, including the new fishing pier (completed in March 2011) will remain open during construction.  Lighter boats, such as kayaks and canoes, can be launched from the shore at the Morgan Falls area.  The concrete boat ramp at the National Park Service Johnson Ferry Unit is available to boaters with heavier vessels and will still allow for access to the same parts of the river.

Replacement of the current ramp is necessary due to deterioration.  Ramp construction is being done by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division.
