MINIDOKA COUNTY, Id. ( KMVT / KSVT ) The Snake River Boat Ramp below the Minidoka Dam is closed.

The Bureau of Reclamation is limiting use of the ramp to officials only due to public safety concerns. The steep slope and poor drainage on the ramp make it unsafe, and difficult to load and launch boats.

The boat ramp is located on the Snake River about 12 miles northeast of Rupert. The public will have access to the river at four other points downstream from ramps in Burley and Heyburn.
