I pulled into the north launch at Buckeye Lake this afternoon to find my trailer missing after leaving it there overnight, locked and way back out of the way. I called the Buckeye Lake PD, only to find that they are closed on Sundays, Then I called the sheriff's office to report my trailer missing, One hour later a tall,young, pimple faced ODNR ranger shows up and asks if there's a problem. I explain that my trailer is missing and he hands me a card for "John's Towing" and states that I can't park it at the launch overnight! (we double checked, there are no such signs stating anything about parking). At this point, I'm releived that it's NOT stolen... but puzzled as to why he would have it towed when it was at the back end of the lot, out of everyones way and He must have known I was on my boat on the lake, Duh! Anyway, I drive over to John's Towing (a small junkyard farm down the street) and "John" says it's a $203 dollar towing fee to get my trailer back!!! CASH ONLY! When I tell him this is crazy and this is some kind of bussiness he's running, he says "well I don't get the chance to go fishing". I'm beginning to notice the resemblance between "John" and the ranger, related? inbreeds most likely! On the long drive home I got to thinking, yes I'm not a local, and yes I have a boat, BUT, I don't make a lot of money and I only get my boat out a few times a year. The ranger and john both seemed quite pleased that they ruined someone's day and there was nothing I could do about it. (I knew I shouldn't have missed church today ) So is this all legal? I can't seem to find any answers, Does anyone know where I can find the regs that the rangers work by? I have searched all over the ODNR site and can't find any oridance or regulations about state park launch parking.
