Tucked about midway on the Nanjemoy Creek, four miles from the main stem of the Potomac River, this ramp is ideal for power boaters seeking a sheltered launch site. It offers easy access to the river or the great fishing in a wonderful tidal creek where bass, white perch, yellow perch, and catfish abound. For the kayaker, canoeist or small boater this creek offers miles of scenic marshes which abound with wildlife. The winding creek has many high banks offering protection from strong winds and nesting sites for Bald Eagles. The ramp is adjacent to deep water and has a pier to aid in boarding. No launch fee, and the ramp and dock are also designed as a free fishing zone. No fishing license is required by shoreline and pier anglers. The paved parking area accommodates 14 vehicles and trailers, including handicap access. Because of the limited facilities, fishing tournaments of any kind are prohibited at this ramp. This is a trash free park, take out what you bring. Route 6 West from La Plata to Ironside. Turn left onto Route 425, to a left onto Friendship Landing Road. The road ends at the ramp.
