RALEIGH, N.C. (February 14, 2011) – N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission Crews have recently completed renovations on the Elkin Boating Access Area in Surry County on the Yadkin River.

The Commission has given the Crater Park site a new ramp, docks and parking spaces. The site is also now fully ADA compliant.

 “The Elkin Boating Access Area is in a great location for boaters in the Northern part of our state,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Commission’s Division of Engineering Services. “It’s been completely refurbished, and we are thrilled to be partnering with the Town of Elkin to provide free, 24-hour access to North Carolina’s public waters.”
