"Fun times on Lake TableRock"
July 2016
The pontoon that we rented from Long Creek Marina was first class all the way. We had a really nice time and will definitely be renting another pontoon in the near future from these folks. Bluetooth, so we were able to listen to our favorite Pandora stations - it was a great time cruising the lake, cliff jumping, and just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Tip: Gas is not included in the price of the boat, so expect an additional expense when you bring the boat back. Bring noodles or other floating devices for times when you just want to relax and listen to music.
