Floating ship's store at Lake Whitney Marina @ Juniper Cove, Whitney, TX 76692. If you use Google Maps, search for "Lake Whitney Marina Floating Ship's Store". The pin sits on the store dock.

 

 

Directions by Boat

We're centrally-located on Lake Whitney between the mouth of the Brazos River and the Whitney dam. We're east of the Katy Bridge at Cedar Creek (we're directly across the cove from USACE Cedar Creek Park). Lake Whitney Marina @ Juniper Cove has several floating docks on the water and they are surrounded by a large campground with cedar cabins and campsites, boat ramps, parking lots, a boat and trailer storage facility, and trees on the hillsides.

 

 

Area - Use Caution & No Wake

The area around Lake Whitney Marina is a NO WAKE / IDLE SPEED area. Watch for buoys.

 

Use caution operating vessels and paddlecraft near docks and the shoreline. Lake levels fluctuate on Lake Whitney. The marina uses a anchoring system to secure its docks. Watch for wire ropes running across the water between the shoreline and winches on the docks. Stay clear of docks and cables.

 

Watch for area boat traffic, boats entering and exiting dockage spaces, boats being launched and hauled out at the ramps, boats getting fuel at the store dock, the concrete piers near the low water boat ramp (depending on the current lake level), and both metal and wood debris next to the old wood pier (damaged by a tornado in 2017).

 

 

Floating Store Dock

Visiting boaters go directly to the floating store dock. This dock has the raised flags, two gasoline pumps, and the white building with the double glass doors and windows around it. Ship's store hours are displayed in the window. The store dock is closed to foot and boat traffic when the ship's store is closed or it's after store hours.
