When Will the Boat Ramps Open?

Parks — Friday, December 02, 2022


The number one question we’ve heard in the weeks since Ian and Nicole is “When will the boat ramps open?

The Town will follow Orange County’s lead, and open our ramps once the County opens their ramps.

Earlier this week, Orange County Parks and Recreation confirmed that ramps on the Butler Chain will remain closed until water levels reach Normal High Water Elevation (NHWE). The NHWE of Lake Butler is 98.48’ NAVD. After historic rainfall post hurricanes, the current elevation is about 99.9’ or 1.4’ above NHWE.

Thank you for your patience as we do our part to mitigate any further damage to lakefront and canal front properties along the Butler Chain.
