Neuse River Parking and Launching Information
We are expecting a big crowd for our tournament. It is advised to arrive early at the ramp. We have secured the ramp with the New Bern Parks and Rec beginning at 4:30 am tournament morning. Lawson Creek State Park offers 2 ramps for our anglers to use. You may use either ramp to put your boat in the water. However, you will need to check in with the Tournament Director before blast off.
If you’re using the ramp farthest from the blast off area, you will be required to idle back down towards the main ramp, which is where registration and weigh-in will occur. There is plenty of parking by each ramp and parking is NOT expected to be an issue. See image below for additional details.
