Question for Ele, Herb or Mike, plan on putting in at the Park ramp this year but heard some storys about truck break ins, is there any truth to that. I know several guys that us that ramp and have had no problems. Would love any feed back. John B...
The last time I used that ramp (some time ago) the entrance to the park was guarded. No problems back then. I'm not really certain, but I believe that entrance is no longer guarded, and fees are on the honor system. If no guard, I can see how that remote parking lot can perhaps have some problems. But I don't know that for sure.
I've heard of infrequent break-ins where people leave their vehicles to walk to the shore for fishing. Don't know if that's still a hit-or-miss factor or not.
I spent a weekend there camping and using the ramp, we had no problems and the park ranger was on patrol all the time, he probably checked on us 5 times over the weekend at the ramp and through out the park. There was no sign a malicious behavior
I also spent a weekend camping there last summer and using the ramp. You have to drive through a gated entrance where there is a gatehouse. There was an attnedent in the gatehouse where you payed your fee. I didn't have any problems, and the place looked clean and well maintained.
I live out Elk Neck Peninsula and use the park ramp all season with no problems. The rangers do patrol and the entrance has a attendant during the summer season. It is the best launch ramp around compared to most. and a short run to the flats. Lock up and you should be fine.
PS There is still water there when the big ships go by!!!!!!!!!!!!
been using it for 6 years with no problems. 1st year i got a golden age card. good for people 60 and ovet to use marland state ramps for free. a great deal. funny thing i saw there early one am. had parked my truck and was walking down to the boat. two car went by me, one with a guy and one with a gal. they parked almost hidden at the back end of the lower lot. i don't think they were going fishing and i don't believe breaking into cars was on there mind.
