Improvements complete at Village Creek boat ramp ...

The Village Creek public boat ramp, located just south of Lansing, has recently re-opened with new improvements. The ramp was closed for construction July 5 through the first week of October. Improvements (some of which are pictured in the surrounding photos) include grading and paving the roadway and boat ramp parking, installing a vault restroom, building sidewalks and adding ramp extensions to improve ramp access during low water conditions. The improvements were a joint project between Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries and State Parks Bureaus and the Marine Fuel Tax program. The area is managed through an agreement with Allamakee County Conservation. Jim Janett, Allamakee County Conservation Director, said, “New docks will be arriving in Spring 2019, other possible improvements may include a kayak launching dock and handicapped boat access improvements. With the project completed, Village Creek Boat Landing is one of the nicest landings on the Upper Mississippi River.” Photos by Susan Cantine-Maxson.
