Boating the Navasota made easier

Boaters around Limestone County who want to enjoy the Navasota River can look forward to a new boat ramp in the next couple of months. That’s because Fort Parker State Park’s boat ramp to the Navasota River – the only public boat ramp to the river in Limestone County – is being rebuilt.
Park Superintendent Mike Loftice said he wasn’t sure when the old one was built.
“It was here way before I came, which is 10 years now,” he said.
But the new boat ramp is scheduled to be finished by the end of January 2018 at the latest.
“It could be done before then,” Loftice said, “even before the new year, depending on whether they run into any snags or anything because they are actually a little bit ahead of schedule.”
The project, Loftice said, has been a long time coming.
