    Thats gotta be about 14 feet high...The actual boat ramp is located between the light pole and the dock...There are 3 ramps there...The jetski ramp is to the far left but not in this pic..Here is what i use to judge if Morris is open..IF the water is below 11.5 feet the ramp is usually open..Anything above that its closed..
