Anticipating thousands of users each year, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Effingham County dedicated the Tuckasee King Boat Ramp and Landing, giving boaters and anglers improved access to the Savannah River.
This new landing improvements consists of new floating docks, truck and boat trailer parking for 50 users, new service pavilion with restrooms, new playground, and other site improvements. The area will be accessible to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This ramp area is one of more than 17 ramps being constructed around the state as part of the Go Fish Georgia Initiative. This initiative seeks to establish Georgia as a national fishing destination through a three-tiered approach: 1) improving the quality of fishing in Georgia waters; 2) improving access to water bodies for fishing in Georgia; and 3) increasing participation through active promotion and marketing of Georgia’s exceptional fishing resources.
There have been several participating people and agencies involved with the development of this area, including the Facility Design Team (Effingham County personnel and Georgia DNR staff members); Effingham County Public Works Department, especially Project Manager Adam Kobek; Effingham County Recreation Department’s Clarence Morgan; Alpha Construction and Colbert Construction.
