Jennings Randolph Boat Ramp

River Access Point

The Jennings Randolph Lake Maryland Boat Launch is on Mt. Zion Road off Maryland state route 135 on Backbone Mountain. The launch includes a thirty-foot wide, 600-foot long concrete boat ramp with a floating pier system. The large paved parking area can accommodate fifty cars and trailers and a comfort facility is available for the boater's convenience. Motorboats, sailboats, and other watercraft frequent the lake with water skiing and fishing being the most popular pastime. Both the comfort station and the launch ramp are lighted at night. The Maryland service charge is $5.00 for launching a boat. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted at the Boat Launch.
