A VPA is a Voluntary Public Access Area, in this case on land owned by Dr. Acree of Adel, the same who sold Lowndes County the corner at the Alapaha River and US 84 for the Naylor Boat Ramp.

Since the county put the boat ramp in front of the old VPA access road, they had to put in a new angled VPA entrance.

That’s all part of the work the voters of Lowndes County funded back in 2013 in the SPLOST VII ballot, for the soon-to-be-complete Naylor Boat Ramp on the Alapaha River Water Trail.
