Update 2: Rockledge Park Remains Closed

Just a quick correction to yesterday’s update on the Lake Grapevine lake level and park status. We stated that Rockledge Park may be partially opened. That is incorrect. Rockledge Park remains closed to the public at this time. Thank...
Update:  Lake Grapevine Is Still Flooded

Update: Lake Grapevine Is Still Flooded

The water in Lake Grapevine is receding slowly from flooding back in May. The water level of the lake is still 18 feet above normal. This is down from over 25 feet above normal one month ago. Most public parks remain closed on the lake. At this time, we are only aware of two one park that is at least partially open. Rockledge Park on the north end of the dam and Oak Grove Park is at least partially open. All public boat ramps remain closed. There may be a private ramp open on the lake. You can see in the photos from today that the lake and park areas are still flooded. Please use caution on Lake Grapevine. Note:  This article has been corrected from its original wording based on new information.  ...

Lake Grapevine Parks and Boat Ramps Remain Closed

a Just a short update here: All parks and boat ramps around Lake Grapevine remain closed due to high water. The lake stands at 27.99 feet above normal and all parks are flooded. You may be able to find access at Silver Lake Marina, but that is uncertain as of this morning. Please use caution around the lake. Most roads around the lake are closed due to high...

Low Water Boat Ramp at Meadowmere Park Now Open

Finally! We have been wondering for a long time when the “low water” boat ramp in Meadowmere Park would open. Several years ago, Grapevine began construction on new low water ramp. The ramp was completed, but when the lake level fell the low water ramp closed just like all the others. This defeated the purpose of the $600,000 low water ramp. Now as Lake Grapevine sits at 12 feet low, we have word that the low water ramp has been extended and is now usable at these low lake levels. Here is the word from the city of Grapevine: The Meadowmere Park, 3000 Meadowmere Lane, low water boat ramp has reopened! Parks staff has extended the length of the ramp for use during extremely low lake levels. Please travel slowly and proceed in and out of the water with caution as shifting and drops could occur with regular use. Due to the ramp being within a controlled access park, the boat ramp will open at 6am and will close at dusk (all vehicles must exit the park at that time). Annual pass or $5 daily rate applies. Please visit grapevinetexas.gov to purchase an annual pass. This is great news for Lake Grapevine boaters who were having trouble getting on the lake. Prior to this week, only one ramp was open on the lake. Now, all we need is some rain to fill the lake back...

Only One Boat Ramp Is Open On Lake Grapevine

  If you have a boat that is not in a marina and you want to get out on Lake Grapevine, we have some good news for you. Your option for launching your boat has been narrowed down to one choice so you will not need to waste any time figuring out where to launch. With the lake level down twelve feet from normal, almost all of the boat ramps on Lake Grapevine are close. Your only choice is to launch in Lakeview Park from the Lakeview North boat ramp. As you can see in the picture above (taken Thanksgiving weekend 2014), the Lakeview North ramp is long and narrow and extends well into the lake.  If you need to practice backing up your trailer on a long narrow path, this is a great ramp to do so. With the cooler weather, there are not a lot of people going out on the lake.  And with the lake so low, it is good that not many people are heading out on Lake Grapevine. If you want to get out on the lake now, be sure to head to Lakeview Park to launch....
