The new boat ramp was constructed in 2004 at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers. It is available for recreational boaters and fishermen.
The boat ramp is open 24-hours a day and has been a popular site for launching kayaks, canoes, and motorized boats. No permit is required for non-motorized boats. A Kansas state permit is required for fishing and motorized boats on the Kansas River. A Missouri permit is required for the Missouri River.
Every summer in mid-July, the Kaw Point Park hosts the "Missouri 340 Race" where paddle-craft race 340 miles from Kansas City to St. Charles, Missouri. For more information visit http://rivermiles.com/ or call Scott Mansker at (913) 244-4666.
