The recently renovated public boat ramps on Ocracoke Island have reopened to the public. The two new concrete boat ramps are sloped at a steeper grade, and extend farther into the sound than the former ramps. The bulkheads and finger piers are in the same locations and configuration.
The project was started in January 2018, and was one of several NPS projects initiated during the off season.
The public boat ramp is located on the northeast side of the National Park Service public parking lot. Parking at the Ocracoke boat ramp parking lot is limited to 1 week / 7 days, after which all vehicles (including boat trailers, recreational vehicles, etc.) must be removed for at least 24 hours.
