    Default Fresh Water South of Anchorage?

    Looking for a spot down south with fresh water where I can back my trailer into and start my boat to run through my engine and flush out any salt water still splashing around. Anyone have any good ideas or spots? I do run it through the self wash car wash and spray it down religiously every time.

    Taylor,
    Are you returning from Kenai or Seward?

    I don't know of any open ramps at this time.
    Do you have a set of garden hose muffs?
    Might be your best option right now.

    I am trying to plan ahead for the summer time so not needed now. I am looking for something coming mostly from Kenai. Am running an inboard so muffs would not work.

    There is a ramp at Kenai lake, it's at Quartz Creek.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Sport lake has a small parking lot and ramp it is just before Soldotna on the spur.
    Then there is Longmere lake a concrete ramp and paved parking lot though it is a bit shallow Just beyond the ramp. This is between Soldotna and Sterling just off the sterling highway.
    The next option is the one Paul mentioned. Kenai lake at Quartz creek campground. Probably the best one to use.
    Skilak lake has 2 ramps and Hidden lake is a good one also but out of your way on a rough gravel road.

    Thanks for the input. Was just worried about having a big motor even though it wont come off the trailer in any of the Kenai areas. Don't want a ticket for not following Regs. But like I said it just want to back into the water and flush the motor for a quick two minutes or so.
