Lake Buffum in Fort Meade is receiving a new boat ramp, opening the way to significantly safer, year-round access for boating and fishing with more parking for visitors to stop and enjoy.

Along with offering more reliable access, the new boat ramp will include a walled channel to provide entry to the lake no matter the water level. While the new boat ramp is under construction, the old boat ramp is open for public use. Visitors can access the boat ramp on Doc Lindsey Road in Fort Meade.
