    Theres one in a park just off old halls ferry road and then the next one is a privately owned ramp just out of west alton. The next one is st. charles. The private one is owned by Gene Beckam. You put 5 dollars in the box and go on your honor. I dont recall the name of the park though. The ramp is at the bottom of Pelican Island

    Sioux Passage Park is the park you're talking about. It's out on Old Jamestown Rd. across from Pelican Island.

    Take 270 E like you're headed into Illinois. As you approach the Mississippi River get off at the last Missouri exit, which is Riverview, and go left (north). Stay northbound on Riverview and it will take you right to the Columbia Bottoms Conservation Area.

    Does that mean the ramp is open?

    I'm pretty sure Columbia bottoms access is not usable for a while. The road may be, and other uses might be open, but not the ramp. At least this is what I am hearing from other fishermen.
