As stated in the LCV Rules and Regulations regarding dock and/or boat lift usage:
20.1 All owners’ boats and equipment must be secured by the owner at the assigned location only. LCV and management cannot be held responsible for personal, rental, or LCV equipment used by any owner or guest.
20.7 Watercraft owners may be asked to remove their watercraft from docks/lifts in severe weather and will be held responsible for any damages to LCV property.
Boats – Three fishing boats without motors, a paddleboat, paddleboards, kayaks, and a canoe are available at no charge to LCV guests. (The canoe, paddleboards, kayaks, and paddleboat may not be used after dark.)
Fishing boats with motors are available for rent on a first come, first served basis. Please complete the rental paperwork at the office.
You must have a life jacket on or with you when using any of the LCV boats. Extra life jackets are available in the outdoor closet on the southwest corner of the office building. Please return the life jackets to the outdoor closet.
Check the boat plugs in the LCV boats prior to use each day, as we may have pulled them out (for draining and cleaning). Please make sure to unplug the boat, especially during storms. The water weight will break the cable system.
Rental Rates: Pull start boats - $200/wk. or $40/day gas included (plus sales tax). Easy pull start - $225/wk. or $50/day gas included (plus sales tax).
Deposit Rates: Boats with Motors - $100, Paddle boards & kayaks - $75.
Boat Lifts and uncovered dock space are available for a fee of $60/week or $15/day (plus sales tax) on a first come, first served basis. One power lift is available for $100/wk (plus sales tax). One 5000# lift is available for $100/wk (plus sales tax). Lifts will accommodate the LCV boats as well as most boats brought in by guests. Note: The office must assign all boat lifts to you. (If your boat is too large for our lifts, we will try to make other arrangements.) All of the boat lifts crank up by turning the wheel clockwise and go down by turning the wheel counterclockwise. Do not play on or around the boat lifts. Once the boat is floating free, do not crank out excessive cable or crank up past the stop mark. While the boat is still on the lift, remove the plug to avoid any unnecessary weight on the lift (during rain events).You may also fish from the docks. (Please remember that other people’s boats are private property.)
Call the office (320) 846-1784 to reserve boats with motors, dock space or lifts, or if you have any questions.
