Kenwood Boat Ramp

Kenwood is by far the most developed of the boat ramp recreational areas. We hold our annual bass tournament at Kenwood. 

 

Not only can the Kenwood parking lot hold two hundred boat trailer rigs but the inner pool and double boat ramp provide a sheltered launching area. The surrounding park has been developed with two pavilions for picnicking. 

The largest is about twenty by forty feet and is big enough for a small crowd. There is electricity at Kenwood that can be used by visitors by registering with the OGT in Ocala at 352-236-7143 and reserving the use of the big pavilion. Tall pines shade the area and add to a relaxing, happy place. There are even port-a-pottys. The only thing that Kenwood lacks is fresh water for drinking. You need to remember to bring your drinking water with you when you visit. Kenwood is located in the north side of Rodman about a half mile off CR 315, a short distance from the junction of CR 315 and CR 310. Once you are underway from the inner basin you can turn east for quick access to the main pool or turn west and go into the transitional zone of the reservoir. Kenwood Recreational Area is by far the nicest of the boat ramp parks.
