Lander Boat Ramp in Chesapeake and Ohio National Historical Park


The Lander Boat Ramp is located near Brunswick, Maryland, at Mile 50.8 on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal towpath. See the Boat Ramps web page for an interactive location map.

NOTE: Sections of the towpath, locks and other historical structures, trails, campgrounds, picnic areas, boat ramps, and visitor centers are constantly being closed due to damage and/or repair. When planning an adventure within Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, make sure that areas you plan to visit are open by checking the National Park Service’s official Current Park Conditions web page.


The Lander Boat Ramp is on the same property as Lock and Lockhouse 29. To get to the ramp, just keep following the dirt road past the house, across the canal towpath, and down to the river. There is a parking area large enough to hold a few vehicles with boat trailers. Like all boat ramps within Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park, there is no usage fee.
