    Caribbean club is just a launch, no dock. Drive on drive off. Passenger pickup at the main docks. Ramp is loose pebble. Pennekamp has multiple concrete ramps with docks however it will get busy and fill up quickly. I put my boat in at Caribbean every spring and take out at pennekamp. I like the docks to get everything set before heading north. Both handle my 26cc no problems. I paid $10 at Caribbean and $4.50 at pennekamp. Both will be jammed by 9am. 

    Good luck.

    My advice leave real early get to Pennekamp by 7 am they open around 7:45 but you want to be in line by roadside forget about going to Caribbean ramp it’s crazy there in daytime. I only went there when I fished at night and tried daytime once and would never do it again
