New revamped launch hoping to give good access for Michigan boaters

CARP LAKE, Twnshp. — A boat launch was reopened this past weekend.

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is ready to reopened the Union Bay Boat Launch last Friday. This is after months of renovations.

The boat launch itself was greatly improved and the water around the launch was deepened by removing rocks, said DNR Officer of Public Information John Pepin. This should give boaters better accessibility to the water, making it easier to launch boats.

The D–N–R hope that by reopening the launch, boaters will be able get into the Union Bay Fisheries in Lake Superior. “[It’s] going to help boaters have greater access to the fishery in Lake Superior there at union bay, Pepin said. Pepin also said it should be easier top launch their boats then it was in the past

The launch had been closed since last October for the renovations. You can get to the launch from the wilderness state park.
