8 Docks

We have 8 major dock structures named A through H plus a PWC Sport Port area that is off the left side of the beginning of our main dock walkway. All our docks except B Dock have composite Trex board as walking surfaces. This ensures excellent traction as well as splinter free, rot free footing.

Common Questions

  • How wide are the slips?

    Each leased slip is 10-foot.  

    Single wells are 10 feet wide. Half double wells are 20 feet. Each lessee is entitled to a 10-foot wide space for their boat.

  • How long is the slip available for use?

    From Thaw to Freeze  

    Once slips are assigned, they are available for use “from thaw to freeze”.

    Indiana springs and autumns vary greatly from season to season. Once conditions on the lake permit boating, you are free to use the slip. In the fall, the weather will again dictate when it needs to be pulled. We try to have all boats removed from slips by the end of November.

  • What is the advantage to a vinyl cover?

    Saves Time  

    If you lease a slip with a lift and a vinyl cover, we can adjust the cover height so your boat will raise up and snugly tuck under the cover.

    This setup can eliminate the need to put your boat’s cover back on after each use.

  • What is lift capacity?

    Capacity Varies  

    Improvements in lift technology have allowed lifts to carry more weight. We’ve invested in these new lifts over the years and have a variety of lifts and lift capacities:

    • 4000 pounds
    • 4400 pounds
    • 6000 pounds
    • 6600 pounds

    The lift you need really depends on the weight of your boat. As a point of reference:

    • Pontoon boats tend to range in the 1900 to 2500 pound range.
    • Fiberglass boats under 22 feet are generally under 4000 pounds.
    • Fiberglass boats over 22 feet and those that are designed for wake surfing, wake boarding and similar activities will have weights that range from 4000 to 5500 pounds.
  • Does lease include use of the marina launch ramp?

    At Season's Start & End  

    When you lease a slip, you may use the launch ramp at the marina the first time you put your boat in for the season PRIOR to Memorial Day Weekend, and the final time you pull it out at the end of the season. ANY use of the ramp at our Geist Marina facility is at the discretion of our staff based on lot conditions at the time.

    All other “Ins and Outs” (example: hauling your boat to another lake for the weekend) must be done at the public launching ramp located on Olio Road. With the slip sticker we provide, you won’t have to pay the Olio public launch fee.

  • Do you offer trailer storage?


    Trailer storage can be paid for and requested in advance, or simply when you launch your boat for the season. If you need your trailer at some point during the season, we ask that you call to request your trailer 2-3 days in advance.

    Please keep in mind, you will not have personal access to our trailer storage facility.

  • How does the slip lease process work?

    Renewal or Waitlist  

    We guarantee that everyone who leased a slip the prior season can have their slip the coming season as long as they complete the contract and pay to renew by March 15th. Beginning in January, we accept slip contracts from new customers looking for space, as well as from existing customers who wish to change locations. In order to be put on our wait list you must complete the slip contract as well as put at least a 50% deposit down based upon the type of slip you are requesting.

    If we do the placements, after March 15th, and do not have a slip to lease to you, we will refund your payment in full.
