How phone registration works
When you arrive at a buoy, call the phone number on the mooring ball. Provide your buoy number and length of stay (3 nights maximum).
Pay with a credit or debit card or provide your Annual Boat Moorage permit number. There is a $4.50 convenience fee to register by phone.
All buoys are first come, first served and $15 per night.
Moorage rules & regulations
Overnight boaters must self-register and pay fee. Annual permits and registration envelopes must be displayed as directed. All nightly moorage is first come, first served. Leaving a dinghy at a buoy or dock does not reserve the site.
Moorage is limited to three consecutive nights at a given park. A vessel rafted to another vessel will be charged a moorage fee based on its own length. Rafting is not permitted on buoys.
Open flames, live coals, and combustibles must be placed on a fireproof base, away from fuel tanks and vents. Pets must be kept on leashes and under physical control at all times. Dispose of all animal waste. Commercial vessels are restricted to loading and unloading passengers transported for recreational purposes.
