Boat Launches

The City of Superior maintains four boat launch sites for public use.  You do need either a daily or annual pass to use the launches.  The sites are as follows:

  • Arrowhead – west end of the City off Belknap Street
  • North 21st Street – west end of the City off 21st Street.  A kayak launch is available.
  • Barker's Island – off Hwy. 2 and Marina Drive
  • Loon's Foot Landing – off Hwy. 2 on 30th Avenue East
Boat launches open in the spring when the Department determines that conditions are appropriate. The docks are removed late fall and this date is dictated by weather conditions.

We do offer restroom facilities at each launch site and there are fish cleaning stations at Barker's Island & Loon's Foot Landing.   Water is turned on at the boat launch facilities, only after the danger of freezing has passed in the spring.
