Pritchard Boat Ramp Now Open

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Pritchard boat ramp, located on the Snake River in the Jackson Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is now open after much needed repairs were made to improve and enhance the recreation area. The site is open and available for launching and take-out even though some smaller construction and improvements are still ongoing. The Prichard Boat Ramp facility is located about 5-miles south of Hoback Junction in the Snake River Canyon. New and improved installations at that facility will continue through the summer including: buck & rail fencing installation, new signing, boat spray station installation to help prevent aquatic invasive species, painting of the bathrooms, planting willows in the newly installed bank stabilization, and installing a picnic table and interpretive panel. “As we proceed in improving the site for visitors, we see no reason to shut the public out while construction continues” said David Cernicek, Wild and Scenic River Manager for the Jackson Ranger District. River permits for floating the Snake River are free and are required for all groups of over 15 people. You can download a river group permit application online at www.fs.usda.gov/btnf under the Passes and Permits section.
