Fall River Boat Ramps
The Fall River Harbormaster manages the boat ramps at Bicentennial Park, Dave's Beach (south Watuppa), and Cook Pond. The Fall River Harbor Ordinance provides for the collection of a fee for the use of the boating access ramps managed by the Fall River Harbormaster Department. The launching of any boat, including cartop watercraft requires that a fee be paid. Users may pay a daily fee at the ramp, or purchase an annual permit in advance. Failure to pay the ramp fee may result in a daily fine of $50 and suspension of ramp privileges in Fall River. Boaters using the ramps can either pay a daily fee at the ramp, or purchase a seasonal permit that is good at all Fall River city operated boat ramps.

Personal Use: $5.00 $60.00
