Private dock fees will be discounted at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park in 2011, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
Private docks fees at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park will be discounted by 50 percent this year due to last year’s water quality impact on recreational boating and the unknown impact for the coming season.
Dock invoices will be mailed in the next several weeks and fees are due no later than May 1. Invoices paid after this time will include a late fee.
Discounting private dock fees follows a series of other reduced fees for services at the state park. Seasonal state dock fees will also be discounted at 50 percent. Other Grand Lake St. Marys State Park discounts include:
  • 50 percent off camping
  • 50 percent off of shelter house rental
  • 50 percent off of Getaway Rentals
Camping, shelter house and Getaway Rental fee discounts apply from Feb. 1 until Sept. 1, 2011. The camping and Getaway Rental discounts do not apply on May 27-29 and July 1-4 holiday weekends. No other discounts including Golden Buckeye will apply to this special discount.
Customers who have already made reservations will have the discount applied when they check-in. The discounts are available only at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park.
