Kayaking
Jul 2021
We rented kayaks from the Frisco Bay Marina. Staff was helpful and friendly. We rented single kayaks for 2 hours. Plenty of areas to kayak without encountering motorized boat traffic. Beautiful area. You can beach your kayaks on most of the islands and take a break if you want. Our kayaks were clean and in great condition. They have an actual launch ramp so you are not trying to step into a kayak that is already on the water - very helpful. There is construction near the marina area, but once you are on the water you are away from it in a peaceful area.

RUDE STAFF

These people are very very rude. Since they happen to be the only business renting out for rides on the lake one almost have to go there and nobody else-

We are so sorry to hear that you had such a challenging experience at the Frisco Bay Marina. Our Marina staff really cares and wants customers to have great experiences, but we are not perfect, and we sometimes have an off day. There aren't many details in your review so it is hard to address a specific concern, but feel free to email us at TomH@townoffrisco.com so we can address your experience more specifically and learn from it. Again, we are so sorry that you did not see us at our best.

Fun 2hr kayak experience
Aug 2020
We rented 2single kayaks for 2hrs (the standard length of time). The kayak and gear we got was nice, dry and clean. The staff at the dock helps you in (if you need it) and they have a launching platform so there's no risk of falling in the water when 'boarding'. It was windy (20-30mph gusts) but we had FUN kayaking up and down the lakeside. Parking at the marina can be challenging but if you get there early there's plenty of spots. Be prepared to leave your car key or drivers license in a mug at the check-in (which was a little disorganized but no long lines whatsoever). Also, book ONLINE in advance to get a discount and fill out all the paperwork.

Under construction, disjoined restaurant/bar/cafe
Jul 2020
Nice docks and views on lake. Facilities are second rate including limited restaurant with poor food. More of a bar. Yard is cut up, better Marina in Dillon by far.

Mismanaged and usafe

I wish there was a way to leave this fewer than one star for the miserable and unsafe experience we had there today. My wife had made reservations there several weeks ago for us to take out some kayaks for my birthday. When we got there, we waited in a long line to check in. Not a problem, it's a holiday weekend, so a long line was expected. However, after check in is when things got bad.

We were given paperwork to take from the check-in location to the kayak shed. We had to wait in line again at the kayak shed. After waiting in that long line we were told we had the wrong paperwork, and had to go back and wait in the original line. So we did that, came back and were told we still had the wrong paperwork. So we went back to the original line for a third time. Then waited in line at the kayak shed. We finally got our life jackets and were sent to the dock, where they told us that they had ran out of paper work. So then we had to wait in line for a 7th time to get a refund.

The entire process of waiting in 7 different lines took well over an hour. This would have been bad on a normal day, but to be packed into lines multiple times for no reason during a pandemic was unconscionable. The worst part was that this could have been prevented by them simply tracking their inventory and told us they didn't have the boats for us when we checked in. And they could have had the paperwork we needed to sign at the kayak shed so we didn't have to go back in forth an wait in a line 7 times. Or the kayak shed personnel could have called the check in desk to make sure they gave us the paperwork we needed.

Needless to say, spending my birthday to wait in lines for an hour and go home, was less than ideal.

Two hour pontoon boat rental was wonderful. Could have had three hours. Very relaxing on the boat and amazing views from the water. Book ahead online. Books up very fast!
