It's not to bad on the deep side short ride down the canal and you can jump out in the shallower side. There's a bunch of ramps if you want to hit the tree house easiest way is to put in at slims fish camp in belle glade

You can put in across from Twin Palms in Lakeport off 78. Water is high and those ramps are good. Plus the airboat side is good too.

safe in lakeport? haha no such thing. just kidding but probably Harney pond canal. knock on wood we've never had a problem. I know right now there's lots of traffic there with gator season going on, game wardens, gator buyers ,other rigs.

20' of water at the end of a ramp isn't the norm for most launches. Have at it hotshot.

We were riding over there and a guy riding with us decided to sink his caddy boat there in the middle of the canal right in front the second ramp . I would say about 14' - 15' and about 5' to 8' of MUCK ( Low water ). What a weekend that was .....


BTW I did talk to a friend in Lakeport and ramp is closed for another week or two.
