Massey Branch Boat Ramp reopened

Written by 

out boatrampAs of late May, the U.S. Forest Service has reopened the Massey Branch Boat Ramp on the Cheoah Ranger District, just in time for the summer season. The popular site, located near Robbinsville on Massey Branch Road, serves Santeetlah Lake and has been closed since October for repairs.

 

“Significant improvements were made to this popular boat ramp, giving visitors a safer and more enjoyable forest experience,” said Lauren Stull, Cheoah District ranger. 

The project was aimed at easing traffic flow to and from the area. It also provides a new double boat ramp and improves parking for boat trailers. Additionally, the project increases accessibility at the site and protects water quality through drainage improvements. The work was done by Adams Contracting of Robbinsville.
