Cross Lake Shreveport Boat Launches and Marinas


There are six boat launches and Marinas on Cross Lake in Shreveport: Melvin’s Landing, Barron’s Landing & Marina, Ark-La-Tex Landing, Municipal Pier & Boat Launch, Johnson’s Fishing Camp and Shreveport Yacht Club.  The Municipal Pier and Boat Launch is the only one that’s free, and the others charge a small fee, but are less crowded.   Melvin’s is my favorite, it has 89 octane gas with no ethanol.   You can also get gas at most of these.  The map below will show you the address & phone number for each.  Otto’s Lakeshore, 5785 S Lakeshore Dr Shreveport, LA 71119-3941 – this is the gas station to go to and get fuel before you go out, they sell a 92 octane gas with no ethanol.

  3. Lets not forget Johnson’s Fishing Camp located at 8140 South Lakeshore Dr. Just west of the 40/8 club. It is the oldest family owned marina on the lake. It still belongs to the same owner since 1978, Mr. Percy Johnson. It is under new management, Jim Steward, and things are happening at Johnson’s. I would think with over 300 launches in the month of March, we would deserve a mention and a spot on that map of all the launches. I am Jim Steward and I would like someone that is in charge of this website to get in touch with me to make arrangements for us to be Listed on the Cross Lake website. I can be reached at 272-0444. Thanks, good fishing and God Bless

      1. Jim, I am looking for a home base to dock my 14X40 houseboat. We plan to move it to Cross Lake from Lake O the Pines in a few months. It’s getting all new floatations currently. Then we’ll put in a flush toilet n holding tank, new motor which will be wired up to the captain’s stand, then ready to transport.
        Is there a website where I can see photos of your facilities n houseboat slips, and get a price per month? I’ve been to Melvins, not sure their slips are wide enough.
        Thanks,
        Susan Anderson

  4. Not sure if ArkLaTex Landing is doing launches anymore, I’d call first. He still does boat and jetski rentals though.
