The ramp has a width of approximately 20 feet, providing enough space for easy launching and retrieval of boats. The facility is also equipped with restrooms, a parking area for vehicles and trailers, and a boat staging area.

The Deschutes River, which the Tetherow Boat Launch services, is known for its world-class fishing opportunities, particularly for rainbow trout and steelhead. It is also a popular destination for recreational activities such as rafting, kayaking, and camping.
