FACILITIES
There is a vault toilet, launching ramp and small picnic area at W.R. Hicks County Park. The boat ramp is useable down to about a plus five foot tide and has very limited parking. This ramp is not suitable for large boats or for use during low tides. This is an excellent place to launch a kayak.
