This place is amazing!! Great service--friendly, patient staff and super-clean boats! We went with a group of our grandkids of all ages and had a blast with the pancake boating. The very helpful and patient staff was a bonus. Thanks for a great outing!!

The manager who helped us on two different days was very helpful and friendly. We rented a kayak and a motorboat. Prices are reasonable. Location is good. The store also sells bait, tackle, and a few other supplies.
