Boat Ramps and Docks

Recreational Boating

Madison is the perfect place to put your boat into the Ohio River for some recreational boating. We have a large public ramp, accessible from West Street or Jefferson Street. From May through October, we also have a 100-foot public dock, perfect for boaters needing to load passengers. This dock also has a pumpout station, provided at no cost, thanks to a grant from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) and the Clean Vessel Act.

The public ramp and dock are not intended for overnight use. For those wanting to stay overnight in Madison by boat, please contact Rivercrest Marina or Rivercrest Marina Lighthouse Restaurant and Lounge.
