In addition to having the largest launch ramp in the park, the Marina contains docking facilities for 576 boats up to 24 feet in length. There is also a 76-space dry storage for boats on trailers. Because of the demand for marina space, a waiting list is maintained at the park office for seasonal slips or dry storage spaces.
