The courtesy dock at Copperas Branch Park is closed.
Within the City parks system, we have boat ramps providing access to Lewisville Lake. There is one boat ramp at Copperas Branch Park and one at Pilot Knoll Park. Additionally, both locations have a courtesy dock and plenty of parking.
There is a cost associated with using the boat ramps; you can purchase a day pass at $10.00 or purchase an annual park pass that can be used for both parks. The cost of a park pass is $35.00 for residents and $60.00 for non-residents and our senior resident (62+) at $20.00; passes are available for purchase at The Robert and Lee DuVall Center or at the gatehouse at Pilot Knoll Park.
In periods of flooding, the boat ramps are closed due to safety concerns. For the boat ramps to open after a flood event, the lake level has to reach 524’ mark, and the ramps are safe for use.
Both Pilot Knoll Park and Copperas Branch Park boat ramp curbs terminate at the same elevation. A good portion of the curbs at each ramp have to be above the flood level. Once the elevation of the lake reaches 524’ above sea level, all curbs are visible and the ramps are safe to open, the city will notify the public by removing the “boat ramp closed signage” located at each park and posting on our website.
