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 as our Marina Manager; this will be his fifth season with the Association. Several of our staff members are also returning, including Kate Stewart, Luke Teague, and Olivia Stewart. New this year are Ben Dickerson and Brad Gayman.
The Marina Season officially opened May 6; 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. Boat rental reservations are also available online at tiptonlakes.com.
All boat rental reservations must be paid in advance or with a 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 early April 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 two deluxe pontoon boats, two regular pontoon boats, a fishing pontoon, jon boat, canoe, and two kayaks. We are proud of our Marina area and hope that you will assist your
