This is on their websiteWe parked at Phil Foster Park
Yes I know but thats where we parked. I'm not saying its a good idea for you or am I by any means suggesting it would be with out issue if you did. When we went it allowed us to purchase a week at the machine you pay at I'm not sure if it still will allow you to do so or not. A week was the max the machine would allow us to pay for at one time which was less then we needed so all our parking had expired by the time we arrived back but we had no problem. I would go the day before and see if the machine will still sell a week if it will not I would probably choose another spot.This is on their website
- Phil Foster, Riviera Beach - boat ramp operating hours: 24-hour ramp access and parking available, boat trailer and tow vehicle parking permitted (24-hour period maximum). Boaters requiring more extended stay periods must utilize alternate parking location.
so you are not planning or arriving at the same place you leave?@Gadiel We have narrowed down our dates to July 6-7 for launch from West Palm Beach and 15-18 coming back depending on the weather. We are giving ourselves this flexibility in dates. Attached is a rough tracing of our route. We should hopefully be visiting Jetboaters group in Bimini on the way back.
We are a couple of boats (Formula 350ss and a walkaround 23’ with twin Yamaha outboards) with a chap sig 270 as a backup just in case. I should be finalizing the trip and dates by end of February. I got fantastic information about the trip from @Berrie , @Andy S and @robert843 and will follow in their footsteps. Let me know if you need any info. I will be following your trip in June closely.

How much are they charging?We found a safe place to park our trucks/trailers for a week but it is going to require us to leave from Jupiter instead of West Palm Beach. Launching from Jupiter is only 4 miles longer to West End an we are ok with that
This place is about 15 min drive from the boat ramp
