Boat Launch Permits

Permits are purchased from the kiosk at the boat launch. Fees may be paid by cash or credit card.

Your seasonal pass is heat sensitive so only place on dash of vehicle while parked in designated parking.

If desired, you can pickup a permit sleeve at the Parks Department Office located at 429 E 24th St, Holland, MI 49423 between the hours of 8am and 4pm.

Ramp Description

This ramp is a hard-surfaced ram with sufficient water depth and lake or impoundment size to accommodate all trailerable watercraft (minimum of 2.5 to 3 feet deep at a distance of 20 feet from shore).
