The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, will temporarily close the south boat landing at Big Sandy Lake, near McGregor to reconstruct the ramp. The ramp will be closed for about two weeks.

Alternate ramps for the public include the Sandy River boat launch and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ boat ramps around Big Sandy Lake.

Over time, activities such as driving boats onto trailers at boat landings damages boat ramps and propeller wash erodes the sediment at the end of the ramp surface and creates a large hole.

The Corps of Engineers is  one of the nation’s leading federal providers of outdoor recreation. The St. Paul District operates 49 recreation areas.
