    There is a boat ramp at Augusta. Its at a Des Moines county river access about 2 miles above Augusta on the north side of the river.
    Its not much of a ramp though.
    They just cut into the bank and probably dumped in some rock for a drive. It works pretty well during high water but its too flat during low water times.
    There is camping at the site and at another up river from that also.
    Both sites are currently closed -flood of summer 08

    There is another boat ramp at the rest area on US 61 south of Burlington.

    have a good one
