The marina is open and in full swing for another season of offering a wonderful amenity to our Tipton Lakes members.
We are pleased to welcome back Tanner Doty, Eli Teague and Kate Stewart. These three have been part of the marina staff for several years. New staff this year are Walker Thomas, Savannah Downey and Dalton Kirk.
The marina season officially opened May 5; please reference your marina brochure or www.tiptonlakes.com for operating hours. The Association encourages members to make reservations for boat rentals and facilities, such as the lower level gathering room, in advance at the Association office, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All boat rental reservations must be paid in advance or by using your debit/credit card at the time of your boat rental. Rental boats are in high demand during the summer months, particularly on the weekends. Therefore, it is encouraged that members make reservations in advance to ensure that we can provide a boat at the time desired.
If you have not rented a boat before, this season is a good time to give boat rentals a try. We continue to make repairs to our pontoons to ensure an enjoyable ride. We also have one pontoon boat especially equipped for those who like to fish. Your driver’s license serves as your membership card and is required for all boat rentals. Summer marina passes are required, in lieu of a membership card, for those without a valid driver’s license. Summer marina passes can be obtained at the Association office only, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Marina brochures were mailed in mid- March and include detailed information regarding rental rates, lake treatment dates and contact information for the marina staff. Everything you need to know to enjoy the amenities at Tipton Lakes is included in one convenient brochure. You may also find information on the Association’s website at www.tiptonlakes.com.
The Association’s rental boat fleet consists of three deluxe pontoon boats, two regular pontoon boats, jon boat, canoe and two kayaks. We are proud of our marina area and hope that you will assist your Association by:
• Discouraging non-member use. Please remember to have your driver’s license or summer marina pass with you at all times when using amenities.
• Encouraging a litter-free area.
• Encouraging a pet-free swim and beach area.
• Hosting parties at the marina no later than 10 p.m. when the beach area closes.
• Calling the Columbus Police Department when you observe suspicious activity in the area. CPD non-emergency number is 812-376-2600.
