Boat Ramp at Golconda Marina

Golconda Marina has one of the largest boat ramps in Southern Illinois and is the largest on the Ohio River for many miles. The ramp is easy to navigate even for larger boats with its pull around access at the top. This makes it a popular ramp for recreational boaters, bass tournaments and larger boat owners alike. During the week commercial boaters that require this type of facility often utilize the ramp too.

Currently there is no launch fee at Golconda Marina. However, boats over 30 feet need to schedule a launch time with the Marina prior to bringing the boat on grounds. All use of the boat ramp is subject to Golconda Marina approval.

Boat Ramp Highlights

  • Full concrete construction to the water
  • Easy to navigate with pull around access
  • Extra wide ramp – Launch three boats
  • Courtesy dock close to ramp
