there is a boat launch under the buttsbridge bridge. The ramp is free so dont pay to launch anywhere else. The site is not very developed, but i have taken out here and it worked for our cannoe, as well as a few small boats that i watched put in and taken out. Have not headed south from the launch into the lake but hope to very soon.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
