Boat Landing Etiquette & Tips
  • Boat and trailer maintenance should be done prior to your arrival at the landing.
  • When arriving at a landing or preparing to launch, please be courteous of other boaters. Use the make-ready lanes to prepare your boat for launching. After launching, please move away from the ramp to allow other boaters to launch. If you need to tie off your boat after launching, please do not stay at the dock for an extended period of time.
  • It is unlawful to utilize the parking spaces dedicated for vehicles with boat trailers for parking vehicles on weekends or holidays.
  • Understand the rules and regulations of the water. South Carolina Department of Resources is a valuable resource.
  • Before leaving the house, make sure you have everything you need for a great day on the water.
  • Check your fuel levels.
  • Make sure someone who is not going with you knows your plan.
  • Make sure the boat is plugged before launching your boat.
  • Practice makes perfect! Weekdays and after work are great times to work on boating skills.
  • Vehicles should be locked and valuables removed from view. CCPRC is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or stolen property.
  • Pack it in. Pack it out.
