Fort Fisher and Carolina Beach State Park are currently being overhauled and should be ready for use this spring (2010).
The public boat ramp at Fort Fisher will have two new ramps with added parking and docks. Crews are also working to stabilize the shoreline there. They are hopeful to have one ramp open to the public by March 1st.
The marina at Carolina Beach State Park is set to reopen early this spring after a $2.5 million overhaul including a 42-slip marina, public boat ramp and store. (UPDATE: The Star-News corrected this information to reflect an opening date in August, 2010.)
The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is also working to dredge the approaches to two of the ramps at the Carolina Beach public boating facility east of U.S. 421 to make them usable by larger boats.
Pleasure Island boaters have a lot to look forward to this spring and summer!
