Prairie creek              
This is not an official boat ramp, there is a chance you are not allowed to launch here.
But it is a great place to get away from it all, and catch a few nice fish. This is a small dirt/ gravel ramp.

But the fishing is good.
Did I mention this is fresh water- / bass crappie shell-crackers and such.

look at on Google Maps
