Opening of Ok-A-Beh Marina Delayed
Contact: Christy Fleming, 307-548-5406
As you all aware we have been working to open the Ok-A-Beh marina before the upcoming holiday weekend. We have been able to get the slips and courtesy dock out as of today.
Unfortunately; we will not be able to finish the work to open the gas docks or slips for the holiday. Due to low water conditions and rocky shore of the lake and marina complex; installing the piping for fuel and other dock work creates a safety hazard to our crews.
We are still working to conclude the Concessions Contract with the Crow Tribe. There are some negotiations and details to work out, but we expect to have a decision soon.
In the mean time; the courtesy dock at Ok-A-Beh marina and vault toilets in the upper parking lot are open. Box Canyon, Black Canyon, and Dayboard 9 is open and available. The bathrooms at the marina store will be closed and water will not be available at the marina.
I regret this inconvenience and your patience is greatly appreciated.
