Oppold Marina

In 1968, the Park District received a recreational lease from the US Corp of Engineers on 31 acres now known as Harry Oppold Marina.

In 1971, the Harbor House, park roads and lighting, a 50-foot launch ramp, and 100-foot main dock, and parking lots were developed through a 100% funded grant.

Since the leasing of Oppold, the dredging of Oxbow Lake, addition of boat slips, two picnic shelters, picnic units, playground areas, landscaping, and more has been added. Oppold Marina features two shelters with electricity that both can accommodate 125 people. Please note, swimming is not permitted.
