Boat Launch Permits
The Town owns and maintains a boat landing at 405 Pinckney Street. A permit is required to launch any type of watercraft at the landing. Annual permits are $50 for residents in the Town limits and $100 for non-residents.
Permits can be purchased at Town Hall or online through the links to the right (bottom of the page for mobile devices). To qualify for the resident rate, you will need to provide a copy of a current tax bill showing ownership of property within town limits.
Town staff cannot modify or forgive a citation after it is issued. Please see rules below.
- Vehicles using the boat launching and landing facilities without a valid permit/sticker will be ticketed and a fine imposed. The Town has jurisdiction on this property.
- Stickers must be placed on the rear window on the driver’s side of vehicle. All stickers must be permanently attached to the rear window and in plain view and NOT obscured in any way.
- Vehicles with attached trailers and boats are prohibited from parking along the roadsides within the Town of McClellanville. Vehicles will be ticketed.
- Park in designated spaces only. Pull your vehicle and trailer straight into one parking space. Vehicles parked at angles that restrict the use of neighboring parking spaces and vehicle will be ticketed.
- One (1) sticker per vehicle.
- Purchase of permit does not guarantee parking availability.
- Keep landing area, waterways, and the Town of McClellanville litter free. (leave no trace behind)
- A sticker will only be replaced if the old sticker is brought into town office. Otherwise, a new permit will be issued at full price. (ex. trade/sell car, replace back glass, etc. remove sticker and bring in as many pieces as possible, including the permit number, for replacement.)
