As spring is approaching, many thoughts turn to boating and water sports. The White Lake Marina and Water Sports is now open under new management and gearing up to offer residents a variety of services.
Jeff and Nancy Howell have taken over the management at White Lake Marina and Water Sports. When asked what drew them to the lake, Nancy Howell said, “We both grew up at White Lake, camping during the summers.”
She added she and her husband, Jeff, want to see the lake flourish and grow in the future.
When asked about how they learned the marina was available, Jeff Howell said he noticed one day that the White Lake Marina and Water Sports had closed. When he inquired about the closure, Howell learned there was no management. Howell explained that he decided to take the marina over and try to grow the business.
“We took it to make it a better marina and to build the community,” said Jeff Howell. “We’re trying to make this some place where people can bring their kids.”
He explained he would like to add more services for customers, more food and more beverages to chose from.
“The lake needs a good marina seven days a week,” said Jeff Howell.
The ramp fees have been lowered to $10 per day and $100 for an annual fee. There are plans in the works to expand the boat storage units. The store will also offer surf boards, wake boards, ropes for skiers, vests and other new items.
One new item that customers will enjoy is a new in-house charge account which can be utilized for food and beverages, products and gas.
The White Lake Marina and Water Sports will officially re-open on April 5, 2019. Hours of operation will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Beginning on May 10, 2019, the Marina will be open seven days per week from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
