Rentals are in good shape. Friendly staff

Boat rental is the only service we have used. The ski boats fit great for a group of 6. The water toys are limited, bring your own if you have them.

My wife and I came to Canyon Lake to try some tubing but the river was far to high and considered unsafe. On the off chance we drove to Cranes Mill and asked about boat hire. They really couldn't be helpful enough, sorted us a really nice boat for an hour at a very reasonable price. I would recommend these... More

We are locals and from time to time we are forced to use this marina. For $20 you don't get paved trailer parking. The parking is very uneven and unkempt. There is no dock to get in by the launch. You have to park and walk a good ways to get into the boat. The dock hands are rarely responsive... More

Have used this place several times, Everyone is always nice and they seem to upgrade their rental fleet often the boats and water craft are in great shape. It is a little pricey but to be expected for boat rentals. They book up fast so make your reservation.

1st time ever boating & friendly helpful staff made the easy to navigate pontoon boat cruise for entire family an awesome experience. These boats are like sitting on your living room furniture w nice shade cover and are no more expensive to rent than a ski jet.

Reserving online is the best way to get your reservation. The reservation is confirmed and you get an email reminder. Love the new boats. We rented the new sea ray boats. With eight in the boat and pulling a float, performance was good. Great staff! This was on the weekend of the 4th, very busy weekend, and the office staff... More

I wanted to launch some small boats at Cranes Mill Marina, but changed my mind as I learned the price just for boat ramp use is $20.00. There are too many free boat ramps along Canyon Lake to waste that much money when I dont have to... . Also very disappointed that they do not allow fishing anywhere on thier... More

Rented a pontoon boat for a few hours. The boat was clean and everything functioned as it should. I thought it was a little pricey, but it's cheaper than buying a boat

It has been a couple of years since we have been up to Canyon Lake due to adverse weather conditions, either drought or flooding. However, we have used Cranes Mill Marina for at least 20 years. In the past we were able to get the gate code, launch the boat then pay when we parked the trailer since we went... More

My hubby and I rented a jet ski. Rare to be able to do that nowadays I'm told. We accidentally called the general phone number to the marina and reserved a jet ski at the Canyon Lake Marina. Fella at the counter took care of it for us no problem. Cancelled it over there and arranged one for us with... More
