Welcome to the Knotty Oar Marina

The marina previously known as the Wagon Bridge Marina has been a marina and a resort since the 1920's. With nearly 2 acres and 600ft. of shoreline, the Knotty Oar is 2nd to none, maybe because it's the only one?!? The K.O. is now known as a family friendly atmosphere that guarantees a pleasurable boating experience where you will discover that our personal attention always makes you feel right at home


KDWB's 2014 Lake Patrol


NO-WAKE as of 06/07/2014

Per the city ordinance, the lake needs to get under 904 for 3 consecutive days then the No-Wake ordinance will be lifted.  If you're in need of any boat or trailer repairs, stop on in or call.  Now is the time to do them!

07/04/2014 - Boat Parade - CANCELLED.

ROCKIN' ON REED'S - We are truly bummed to post this, but we are going to have to cancel this year.  Our island is for the most part, under water.  Plus we really want to be respectful to the area homes that have been impacted by the flood.  Not to worry though, it will be even bigger and  better next year! 


KDWB Lake Patrol starting from the Knotty Oar!  Come on down to meet your favorite DJ!
