Sharps Station Access


Sharps Station boat ramp received severe damage due to flooding and is currently closed. The ramp will remain closed until repairs can be made. The parking lot will be closed longer than normal after flood events to allow the road and parking lot to dry out sufficiently before new gravel is added. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Driving Directions

From I-29 at Platte City, take Route HH (Platte City exit) east, then Interurban Road northwest about 1 mile.


This forest area offers access to the Platte River with a concrete boat ramp.
