Black Point Boat Launch
Novato, California 94945
Black Point Boat Launch is a very popular two acre site in east Novato, with a newly renovated, single-lane ramp and dock for motorized and non-motorized boat launching at the mouth of the Petaluma River. Facilities include new permanent bathrooms and fish cleaning stations, as well as picnic tables. The restrooms, dock, parking, and picnic tables are accessible.
Black Point is a great place to fish for sturgeon and striped bass, enjoy a picnic, and bird watch. Dogs are allowed on leash and must not enter wetland areas because of sensitive habitat and wildlife species.
