Having undergone a comprehensive renovation in 2012, Washburn Marina is managed by a private company and owned by The Town of Lake Lure. It is adjacent to Morse Park. A variety of fee-based boating and recreational opportunities are available, including:
SLIPS: The boat slips at the marina are open (to paid renters) year round.
RAMP: The boat launch ramp is open 24x7 year round
SALES: Tour boats do not run in the winter. Thus, the marina office is closed for ticket sales, merchandise and boat permit sales during the off season.
GAS: The marina office and gas pumps are not open year round. They have a limited off-season schedule (weekends only in November, call for hours in March). April through October, they’re open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. During the off season, the gas pumps are opened by appointment.
The Tours, Marina and Beach office phone number is 625-1373
