Martins Creek Boat Ramp Temporarily Closed for Repairs

The boat ramp off DePues Ferry Road downstream of PPL’s Martins Creek power plant has been temporarily closed for repairs.

“We understand that the temporary closure is an inconvenience to our neighbors who use the boat ramp to access the Delaware River this time of year,” said Paul Canevari, PPL’s regional community relations director.

 “But the end of the ramp has been washed out, requiring repair work,” he said.

 A contractor has been hired, and the repair work will begin as soon as permits are received, he said.

 “We will notify the public about the reopening of the boat ramp as soon as the repairs are completed,” Canevari said.

    Are we still able to launch tubes from there. We were there yesterday and the access gate is opened so can we still access the river from there without launching a boat?

      Kayakers and tubers can use the boat launch.
