Lake and Marina at Big Canoe

If you are looking for a great way to spend the day at Big Canoe, why not opt for a day on the lake. The new shop at the Lake Petit marina stocks cold beer, wine, soft drinks, snacks, fishing licenses, poles, equipment and the local favorite PowerBait.

The marina has six pontoons and two Jon boats for rent, as well as two canoes. You can’t fish off two of the pontoon boats, so be sure to specify this when you reserve one if you plan on fishing.

The boats are available for rent by the hour: Pontoon boats are $20, Jon boats are $10 and the canoes are $5 an hour. Canoes can be rented for a single hour, but the other boats have a two-hour minimum. Weekends and summer days especially, the boats are busy, so call ahead at (706) 268-3303 to reserve one. For holiday weekends, attendant Cass Harris recommends calling a couple of months in advance. The marina is open daily from 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. Fishing poles can be rented for $5 a day.
Have a wonderful weekend in the North Georgia Mountains.
