Dawson Boat Ramp

Located 1 mile north of Dawson, the Dawson Boat ramp offers easy access for boaters and anglers to the scenic North Raccoon River water trail.
The area includes a gravel parking area, paved boat ramp and 20 acres of public hunting area in a forested wetland habitat.


Turn north off of Highway 141 onto D Ave/P46  to go into Dawson. Follow the road north - it will turn east at the church, and then north again at the intersection of 3rd and Forest.  Follow the road about 1 mile.  The boat ramp will be on the east side of the road just before the bridge crossing the river.
