Why is the National Park Service renting boat slips?
Boat Slips and Mooring Buoys
The rentals will be formalized with a Special Use Permit issued by the National Park Service to the boat owner for six-month or one-year blocks of time following the October 1 to September 30 fiscal year.
How do you rent a boat slip?
3. Once you have completed your "Special Use Permit" application, submit it to Marina Manager Barrera for review. You can mail it to him by sending it to:
4. You will be notified if your application has been approved and a boat slip is available for you to rent.
5. You will then need to sign your Special Use Permit, and show proof of insurance for your boat. Your boat will need to display valid state registration numbers, a valid state registration decal, and a current National Park Service Annual Lake Use Permit.
6. You will be able to make your boat slip rental payments through the www.pay.gov website. Payments can also be made at the National Park Service Visitor Information Center.
7. The same steps apply if you are renting a mooring buoy instead of a boat slip.
