Sorry if this has been asked recently, but does anyone know if the state park boat ramps on ray roberts are currently open? If so how does the money transfer work or are you required to get the annual pass?

Buck is closed I believe. Last I heard you have to get whatever pass online, the pay boxes are shutdown. You should call IDB state park to be sure.

So can you still just pay the ramp fee in the box? Because ya can’t get the “day pass” online because it doesn’t give you the option of boat ramp use and they claim the Park is full. Kinda ticks me off that the state park system has all the power at Ray Bob despite the actual water way being governed by Army COE.

The day pass gives you access to the boat ramp. I've done this several times at Isle du Bois. Make your reservation early because they sell out and you won't get in the gate. The Sanger ramp and the Pond Creek are open. If you have Texas Park Pass you just put your pass on the dash and launch. Without, there's a pay station as I recollect. Sorry didn't pay much attention to the pay stations since I have the park pass.

There no way to pay at the ramps, they are covered in plastic. So i guess get a state park pass. that's what we do.

If you are launching at IDB or Johnson Branch, an online day pass is required to get in the park. If you are launching at Pond Creek or Jordan or one of those ramp only type parks, the park pass is the easiest route and that goes on the dash or in the hanger they give you with the bar code facing out.


See you on the lake and have a great day!
