Six Boat Ramps Closed at Lake Nasworthy
Six of the 10 public boat ramps at Lake Nasworthy have been closed because of the lake’s declining level.
The ramps that remain open are at:
- Beaty Road.
- The northern end of South Concho Park.
- Mary E. Lee Park.
- The entrance of Middle Concho Park.
Caution is advised in using each of the ramps. While the Middle Concho Park ramp has ample water, the ramp’s grade is steeper than most. The other ramps have shallow water.
The six ramps that have been closed are at:
- The southern end of South Concho Park.
- Knickerbocker Park.
- Spring Creek Marina and RV Park.
- Ramp Road.
- The eastern end of Middle Concho Park.
- Fisherman’s Road.
Warning signs have been posted alerting boaters that the ramps are closed.
Operations Director Shane Kelton said crews will conduct repair and maintenance work on the closed ramps if the water level dips low enough.
Lake Nasworthy is at 61 percent of its capacity. Nasworthy is normally supplemented with water from Twin Buttes Reservoir, whose levels are too low to release water into the neighboring lake.
