From start to finish, it was a great experience. The website was easy to navigate and comprehensive. The staff was extremely helpful and went above and beyond expectations. The boats were all new, very clean, and well maintained. We rented a 14 person pontoon and a 2 person tube. A great time was had by all. It was the best way to beat the 100+ heat.

My family rented a pontoon and two jet skis for our party of 11 to take out on the water. We were scheduled to get on the water at nine, now this may be information they should have provided but unless u get there 45 minutes early to fill out all the paper work, watch all the saftey videos, get life jackets oh and wait behind all the other people that are doing the same thing. So we finally got on the water at about 10 and had to have the jet skis back at noon. The pontoon again takes off at ten and has to be back by 1 so off we go when we stop to start tubing we realizes that the ladder is broken ok so now we have to use the back up ladder on the side not 30 min later that ladder breaks too. Oh and I don't know if it's just not a option or what but there was no anchor so when we wanted to just swim we had to idle back out every ten minutes or so. The wave runners were a blast and when we went to take them back we had to wait for them to fill them with gas and then instead of charging it to the credit card on file we have to take it up and pay by this time it's almost 1230 and we get on the pontoon that was waiting for us and got a whopping 15 minutes out of the marina before we had to go back so was it fun... Yes was it worth the price??? NO. Oh and gas for everything was 120 bucks holly cow.

This is the second year in a row we have rented boats from State Park Marina. The staff is very good at getting you in and out on the water, without cutting corners. They have newer boats that are well maintained. We got a pontoon last year and a ski boat this year, as well as a tube to pull behind. I would recommend calling ahead and getting a reservation. It's quick and easy, and will insure you have what you want on a busy summer day. See you next summer!

We rented a pontoon boat for the entire day and a wave runner for 4 hours. It was suppose to be 108 degrees outside that day. My family was so impressed with the service we received from the works at the State Park Marina! We needed our tube for boating aired up and a guy helped us blow it up with no questions asked. GREAT place to rent a boat if you are looking into it! Can't wait to come back next year!
