New River Boat Ramps Open in Portsmouth

(AP)  State officials say a newly reconstructed marina along the Ohio River at Shawnee State Park is open for service in time for the winter lease season.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says the recently completed project features 72 boat slips at lengths of 28 feet, 36 feet and 50 feet. They feature galvanized steel frames and wood decks.

The 50-foot and 36-foot slips come with water and electric services.

New restrooms and parking were also part of the renovation and a courtesy dock was included that's accessible to those with disabilities.

The marina sits adjacent to an 18-hole golf course and within the 1,095-acre Shawnee State Park.
