Heytman’s Landing boat ramp on Mississippi River closed for channel dredging

The Heytman’s Landing boat ramp, located south of Lansing on Pool 9 of the Mississippi River, is closed to dredge the boat channel. The work is expected to be completed by mid-November.

Boaters are encouraged to seek other ramps in the area, including Village Creek in Lansing and New Albin Army Road, north of Lansing. There are also many ramps on the Wisconsin side of the river. The Big Slough and Winneshiek Slough landings are accessible across the Black Hawk Bridge along WI Hwy. 82 (more locally known as the dike road).

Blackhawk Park Recreation Area has multiple ramps and the Dairyland Power access south of Genoa has plenty of parking.
