Located at the Ridgefield Waterfront where the banks of Lake River meet the Columbia River at the North tip of Bachelor Island, our boat launch is an incredible local resource. This idyllic location offers you the chance to row casually along the Lake River or speed into the Columbia and experience incredible river vistas.

Our boat launch includes two ramps with a center launch float, a single day-use dock, paved parking lot, restroom facilities, ADA-accessible facilities and a grassy picnic area where you can rest and enjoy the views before or after your journey.
