VICKSBURG, Miss… A floating dock was recently installed at Grenada Landing’s boat ramp of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District’s Grenada Lake by EZ Dock Contractors of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Grenada Landing was the chosen site for the floating ramp due to the popularity of this ramp. 

The dock meets all American Disabilities Act guidelines, accommodates four to five boats, and is equipped with handrails, benches, bumpers, and cleats. 

The floating dock runs parallel with the boat ramp and is approximately 190 ft. long. Benefits of the floating dock include a safer and easier setting for Grenada Lake visitors to board their boats, load and unload supplies, and decrease traffic congestion.

Grenada Lake’s water level fluctuates nearly 25 ft. throughout the year. The lake ranges from around 215 ft. national vertical geodetic datum (NGVD) during summer months and down to 193 ft. NGVD during winter months. Despite fluctuating lake levels, Grenada Landing’s boat ramp is usable throughout the year.
