RALEIGH, N.C. (April 27, 2010) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has launched a new, easier way to find more than 200 free public Boating Access Areas across the state.

The Interactive Boating Access Area Locator lets boaters search for a ramp by address, body of water, or amenities. Once they locate a Boating Access Area, users can zoom in and out of the map, find an address, identify latitude and longitude coordinates, and print directions.

“Providing access to public waters and providing informative, easy-to-use tools to locate that access go hand in hand,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Division of Engineering Services. “This interactive map, along with our more than 200 Boating Access Areas, is another way we are helping boaters across the state get in the water.”

To access the map, visit the Boating and Waterways page on www.ncwildlife.org  and click on Interactive Boating Access Area Locator.
