Mark and Brad Bardo from Fort Thomas , Kentucky have purchased the lease this month on the marina. Immediately, construction started to renovate the boat store. A new roof and siding has changed the appearance considerably.  Inside, the entire store is being gutted and expanded to accommodate a small restaurant with simple food items, beer and all varieties of soft drinks will be for sale.  A huge outdoor gas/picnic area is in place with new pumps to service up to 7 boats.  Full pump out service is also available.  The marina will be a FULL BAIT center.  For this season, Brad will be adding 3 brand new houseboats for rental. These boats, the first to arrive around May 1, will be 16′ x 76″ monsters sleeping 14.  Four new pontoon boats, 24′ foot with 90 hp Mercury motors, are on the way.  These will take 14 persons also. 2 ski/runabout boats will be on-site.  Mark is looking for as much of these improvements to be completeded sometime over the next 3-4 weeks.  40 new slips are to be constructed as soon as possible.

PUBLIC RESTROOMS WILL NOW BE AVAILABLE AT THE STORE ! ! !  No more walking up to the restrooms on the hill.

Connie is still with the marina as Operations Manager

Many of our past visitors may remember “Big Don’ working the marina boat launch area.  We regret to inform Don passed away this month.  His smile on the ramp will be missed.

Expected hours of operation for the Summer will be 8 AM – 9 PM, seven days a week.
