These Are The Best Places To Get Your Boat In The Water.  All Are Palm Beach County Operated And Free Of Charge.

#1: Burt Reynoldsí Park: Located 800 & 801  U.S. 1,  north of Indiantown Road.  These ramps have great access to the Jupiter Inlet from a well maintained county park.  There are two sets of ramps:

Burt Reynolds West Side: These two ramps offer quick access to the Intracoastal Waterway.  They are a favorite of fishermen wanting to make a quick run out the inlet.  My experience is that these ramps are used by experienced boaters who sometimes run short patience.  Itís best that you be able to quickly load/unload and get out of the way!  The ramps are lit after dark with two streetlights.  There is 24 hour access.

See photos of Burt Reynolds west side ramps.

Burt Reynolds East Side: These four ramps are a pleasure to use.  The extra capacity keeps things moving, even on crowded days.  The downside is that you have to clear one of two short fixed bridges (one is immediately to the west of the ramps, the other requires that you circle around the island on which the park is located.)

The parking lot is almost always jammed on holidays and weekends.  People use the parkís grassy areas for overflow parking.   I have heard (though not confirmed) that all Burt Reynolds ramps have stops in case you back your trailer in too far.  I have a large trailer and never had a problem, even at extreme low tide.

See photos of Burt Reynolds east side ramps.

#2 Phil Foster Park, East side of the Intracoastal Waterway at the Blue Heron Bridge (Singer Island/Riviera Beach.)  900 E. Blue Heron Blvd.

  This ramp has good access to Peanut Island and the Lake Worth (Palm Beach) Inlet.  There are two wide ramps with a fair amount of parking.  This location can get crowded on weekends (Police close it when parking runs out.)  It is especially crowded now that the Lake Park Marina ramps have closed for renovation.
  WARNING: Riviera Beach Police unfairly ticket visitors.  Carefully check parking signs and do not park on Blue Heron Blvd.

 
There is an excellent spot for beach dives and snorkeling off the south end of the parking lot. The restrooms and general condition of this park is marginal.  Homeless people sometimes stay here.  Some people are not comfortable in the area after dark.  Overnight parking is not recommended for fear of theft.
See Palm Beach County web site for Phil Foster Park.

# 3 Bert Winters Park, 13425 Ellison Wilson south of Donald Ross Road in Juno Beach.  Two ramps with access to the Intracoastal Waterway.  Itís about a half hour boat ride to the Jupiter Inlet (north) and the Lake Worth (Palm Beach) Inlet (south).  This ramp is less congested because of its location.  Strong current in the Intracoastal Waterway can make it difficult to maneuver upon your return.  Park gates close at night.   See photo.

#4 Juno Park, 2090 Juno Road off Ellison Wilson north of PGA Blvd. in Juno Beach.  One steep ramp with access to the Intracoastal Waterway.  Itís about a half hour boat ride to the Jupiter Inlet (north) and the Lake Worth (Palm Beach) Inlet (south).  This ramp is less congested because of its location.  Strong current in the Intracoastal Waterway can make it difficult to maneuver upon your return.  Park gates close at night.  Check the condition of the dock fenders which can be useless during low tide.  The rampís steep grade and tight tow vehicle turn-around space are of concern to some boaters.  The restrooms and playground are in good condition.  See photos.
