Hamburg-Mitchell Missouri River boat ramp to close June 30

A popular boat ramp on the Missouri River, leased for public access by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR), will close on June 30.

The Iowa DNR had been leasing the ramp and small parcel of land to provide river access since 1985. Known as the Hamburg-Mitchell Access, the land was sold recently and its lease terminated.  

The Iowa DNR has been exploring options to provide river access in the area. The next closest boat ramp on the Iowa side is more than 25 miles away.
