Boat Ramps & Day Use Fees

Due to fluctuations in lake levels, the Corps of Engineers at Harlan County Lake will not be collecting day use fees.   Annual day use passes are still available for purchase at the Corps of Engineers office for those users who may be traveling to other lakes.   

The Hunter Cove Low Water Boat Ramp and access road will be closed until further notice.  Due to rising lake levels the roadbed has become saturated and begun to erode.  To protect the ramp and road for future use, vehicle traffic and boat launching will be prohibited until further notice.

Update - Due to rising lake levels, the boat ramp at Methodist Cove has become usable.  Channel depth is less than 2'6" and boaters are urged to use caution.  A courtesy dock has been placed at the ramp.  The Corps of Engineers will monitor channel depth and lake elevations daily to determine ramp open periods. 

Public boat ramps at Gremlin Cove, Methodist and Patterson Harbor are all open.
