  2. The registered guest must present a valid driver's license, credit card, proof of insurance, and TPWD vessel registration card at check-in. The registered guest with the reservation (photo ID) must be listed as the registered owner of the vessel according to the information available from the TPWD website. Vessels registered to other individuals are not permitted.



  1. Dockage space is subject to availability at check-in time on the day of your arrival. Space is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis after the standard check-in time. Dockage space cannot be reserved in advance.

  2. A dockage space that is available may not accommodate the type or length of vessel you own.

  3. Overnight accommodations at Lake Whitney Marina do not include any type of dockage or storage of any vessels, trailers, or paddlecraft on the property. Dockage space is not guaranteed for any individual or with any cabin/campsite/rental RV reservation. All dockage and storage fees are in addition to rates and fees charged for accommodations.

  2. Vessels must be registered with TPWD, comply with all state and federal regulations (e.g. TX numbers are displayed correctly using 3" decals), seaworthy, covered by a marine insurance policy, appear in good condition, and free of trash and clutter.



  1. Dockage space is assigned by the marina's owners only. Employees and contractors working at the marina do not have authority to approve individuals, vessels, or trailers for any type of dockage or storage at Lake Whitney Marina. They do not have authorization to enter into any written or verbal agreements on behalf of the marina's owners.

  2. Only the registered guest (vessel owner) is authorized to access the boat dock, the assigned dockage space, and the vessel when it's tied up to the marina's dock. The registered guest (vessel owner) must comply with all marina rules and regulations about accessing boat docks, occupying dockage spaces, using dockside services, and operating vessels in the marina. The registered guest is responsible for any damage, accidents, or injuries. They are responsible for their boat passengers and ensuring the passengers abide by all rules and regulations. Any complaints received from fellow boaters on surrounding docks, failure to follow rules, or abide by any state or federal regulations can result in immediate ejection from the property without refund.

Registered guests cannot swap dockage spaces with other guests. A registered guest cannot share their assigned dockage space with another vessel or with another individual. Violators are subject to being reported to law enforcement and registered guests are subject to being ejected from the property immediately without refund.

  4. A vessel can be reassigned to another space by the marina's owners at any time and for any reason due to needs of the business. 

  5. There is no exclusive use of any assigned dockage space. Other vessels (TX numbers) may be assigned to the same space by the marina's owners. Keep your vessel to one side.

  6. Vessel owners are responsible for providing their own ropes and boat fenders. Vessels must remain in the assigned space and must be secured to prevent hitting the dock due to wind, waves, or wake. Boat fenders and dock lines are sold inside the ship's store.
