 THE BASIC RULES FOR HOUSEBOATING

  1. PACK LIGHT – your Staterooms are cozy
  2. BE PREPARED – there are things you may not have thought about, lucky for you, we’re here to remind you.
  3. STOP AT THE MARINA STORE – we’ve got all the basics (plus more) that you need
  4. HAVE FUN!

THE MANDATORIES

  • Bedding (or sleeping bags) and pillows for each bed (light blankets may be useful for cool nights)
  • PACK LIGHT – Swim suits, flip flops, sneakers, coverups, shorts and t-shirts, a little something for cool nights….it’s literally all you will need
  • Toilet paper
  • Hand and Dish Soap
  • Towels – beach towels, bath and hand towels, and paper towels
  • Games/Cards/Water Toys & Equipment/Binoculars/MUSIC
  • A camera – you’re going to want to document this!

THE MUSTS

  • FOOD and Ziploc bags
  • Safety First – life jackets for kids and infants
  • Sunscreen (waterproof is best!)
  • Ice (you can purchase this in the Marina Store upon arrival)
  • Matches
  • First Aid/Insect Repellant
  • Water
  • Chargers for all those electrical devices
  • A sharpie – mark your name on a disposable cup and cut down on waste

WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT

  • Beach chairs
  • Hiking boots/shoes
  • Ski equipment
  • Fishing gear – including a license which is NOT sold at either marina store
  • Beach games – horseshoes, whiffle ball & bat, ladder golf, etc.

HOUSEBOATING FOR ROOKIES

  • It’s the greatest vacation adventure that ANYONE can take. Just show up, and we teach you the rest!
  • Prior to departure, you will be given: a houseboat orientation tour, systems briefing, and safety briefing.
  • After your orientation, you will be driven out of the marina and given a short lesson on beaching and the rules of the lake. All boats must be beached every night….otherwise you will be called to the National Park Service principal’s office.
