There’s nothing quite like being on the water in a Minnesota summer, whether you’re in to swimming, boating, fishing, or cruising. Our full-service marina is equipped with everything you need for a perfect day on the lake.
The Marina is open every day at 9:00 a.m. from Memorial Day through Labor Day and by appointment.
Want to bring your own boat?
You are welcome to bring your own boat and dock it at one of our many Marina slips! Please note that boat slips are available on a first come, first served basis. You can also park your boat trailer in our trailer parking lot, and you can purchase gas right on the lake—just pull up your boat and we’ll fill it up for you.
