Don't know anything about thatlake but TWPD has pretty decent lists of amenities at each ramp etc. for different lakes, I usually start my recon work form their website for any new lake. I like to know stocking history, forage, lake records, etc. before going to a new lake as well and they have most of it.

The best ramp is at the volunteer fire department on the northwest side of the lake.

Go past the lake on Hwy 259...
Take a left on 144 at Jenkins...
Take another immediate left on 997...
Continue on 997 a mile or so and look for a big red metal building on the left....
That will be the fire department and the ramp.....

I'm pretty sure the city ramp has a hole or weird bend in it can't remember. I just know the ramp by the fire station is good.

I don't know anything about the marina.

It has a bend in it. If you back into the lake the way it points you, you will drive off the ramp. It goes left. It's a little rough but not bad. I always use that one when I go. Just a bit of a pain backing in
