Default Hagg Lake Pontoon Launching Advice

I'm thinking about taking my inflatable pontoon to Hagg Lake. I'll need to do some inflation/assembly and I don't want to bog-down the ramp. Obviously being a newbie there, is there an area near or next to one of the ramps to do this? Any advice and which ramp?
I'll figure out the fishing. That's the fun part.

Check out google earth or google maps sat view?
There are parking lots adjacent to the launches I've been to.

Hey Fishfeet. I've looked at the WC maps and google maps. There isn't enough detail to know for sure. I see the parking, but I don't want to take multiple trips from my small rig--from much distance in order to get assembled and launched. I don't want to take a half hour of ramp time. So, is there a spot next to a ramp to unload--get-out-of-the-way, assemble and go fishing? I can't bring it assembled.

Boat ramp a. Truck it the the bottom of the ramp, put your stuff on the beach off to the side away from the dock. Park and walk down, do your build and launch.

When you get back, do it in reverse.

It gets windy at Hagg in the afternoon, be prepared to get blown around a bit.

Thanks. I have an electric motor for the wind. I always row unless the wind comes up strong. When that happens, I get off the water. It might as well be a sail not a pontoon boat.

When the water level is up, you dont even need the ramp to get down to it.

Ramp C also works as there is “beach” to the side.

Thank you. Ramp C is closer or inside the no wake zone where I plan on being most of the time. Hopefully, the park will be open.
