Have maintained slip for many years now at Lithia

Facilites are being upgraded. Management is easy to work with.

We had an amazing time, and everybody is so friendly at the marina.

by Michael P. on Sep 07, 2023
Everything was great with the slip. The only issue I had was that someone had parked in my spot even though there are signs that say that these slips are reserved. Not Lithia's fault. Just someone who can't follow the rules.

Great slip location on port side as requested. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Highly recommended for a very fun time on Lake Shelbyville

Our stay was great, check in easy and slips were where we had requested.

Our stay was for 10 days. I requested slip to be on the left. ( I requested this when I booked the reservation in April, and sent another message just to be safe that slip needed to be on left) We have a pontoon and the door is on the left. The first three days we were placed in slip F02 which was not on the left. Then we were moved to slip N which was on the left. But when we got ready to dock, there was a boat still in our slip. So we were told to go back to F02, for one more night. The next night we were back on slip N, and that's where spent the rest of our days. Number one, I don't know why we couldn't have a slip on the left, when it was booked in April, (not last minute) number 2. Why did we have to be moved well into our stay. The staff is help full. Booking is questionable.

The slip was in a great location. Right in front of the store door

by Perry D. - Verified user on Jul 17, 2023
A little confusing trying to figure out where to go but once we got situated it was great. Great service and a great week at the Marina and lake

Great experience. No issues

by Greg O. - Verified user on Jul 09, 2023
Been coming to Lithia for decades renting houseboats and boat slips and never had an issue until this time. I reserved two slips right next to each other and when we arrived, someone was parked in our second slip with a really wide boat. Management told us "there was nothing they could do about it", so for two days it was really dicey getting our 23' tri-toon in and out of that slip with this random boat parked there, until it finally left. When I reserve a slip I'm asked to give my phone number and I could not understand why they wouldn't just call the person to come get their boat out. First world problems, I know, but it was a pain and almost hit the other boat a few times. I just figured Lithia could do better.

We had a great time and the staff were amazing!

Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, efficient. Can’t ask for more than that

by Douglas S. - Verified user on Jun 09, 2023
Overall marina result of decades of patchwork add-ons. Transient slips buried in maze. Single lane launch ramp with very long walk to trailer parking causes major delays. Early Friday afternoon was bad (took about an hour to haul out 18 foot fishing boat. Hate to imagine what a Saturday is like. Need more ramps/dock. Some people had trouble hauling out an empty trailer due to smooth (why not textured?) concrete ramp. Employees where great but wouldn’t stay again.

Great service, very nice staff.

Great docks, great people

by Lance W. - Verified user on May 22, 2023
The dock was convienent and great location to where we were staying. I would ask to have some bumper protection on the poles. There is only 1 piece of plastic on a pole for 1 side of the dock. Thanks

by Edward H. - Verified user on May 21, 2023
Super easy and convenient booked online and was just minutes to check in and then we where off on the water would recommend it to anyone.

Everybody was very kind and friendly

by John D. - Verified user on Apr 23, 2023
I like the convenience of the reservation but am disappointed in the refund policy. I would have stayed longer if this wasn't the policy.

by STEVEN M. - Verified user on Sep 06, 2022
No return policy with over a months notice is unacceptable. This is double dipping as I am positive the spot I reserved was used by someone else that also paid.

by Steven F. - Verified user on Aug 12, 2022
Nice marina. Handy to campground. Nice family atmosphere. I loved having electricity to charge my boat every night. The dock staff were accommodating and friendly.

by Cathy O. - Verified user on Aug 01, 2022
This was our first time to your lake. It was easy to reserve a spot and everyone has been so helpful.

by Jerome F. - Verified user on Jul 17, 2022
Our reservation was lost and they didn't have an assigned slip for our four day stay.
Marina Response:

Very friendly and helpful! Love Lithia Springs Marina! Hope to go back in the fall!

by Robert F. - Verified user on May 12, 2022
Great place, really nice people working there! Only issue is that they don't seem to have the technology all together yet, couldn't find my reservation, and then said I needed to pay for it, but I had printed the confirmation and payment receipt, so it was not a problem, but best to be prepared!

by David D. - Verified user on May 06, 2022

by Vernon S. - Verified user on May 12, 2021
Very clean and inviting. Just what we were looking for since we were there for the fishing. Close to the water but not on the water.😔. But the wonderful hospitality made up for that!😁. Looking for to coming back very, very soon. Fishing was awesome too!!!

by Mark K. - Verified user on Oct 04, 2020
Well managed marina. Clean, all docks in great shape, electric for your boat at your slip. Dock store close and well stocked. I'll be back.

by Jeff K. - Verified user on Jul 25, 2020
We have been coming to Lake Shelbyville for over 20 years, Lithia springs Marina has always been a great place, wonderful staff and good prices!

by John J. - Verified user on Jun 26, 2020
Staff were friendly, slip was old, cost was high for a non covered slip at $45+ per day, but the only available slips on the lake so a sellers market.

by Michael C. - Verified user on May 26, 2020
The launch ramp was horrible, poor signage ended up going elsewhere and I was still charged even though they said I wouldn’t be. BEWARE!
Marina Response:
We are so sorry you had a poor experience. However, the launch ramp is not marina owned. This is owned and operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers. We are currently 10 ft over summer pool so the high water ramp was opened. This is not typically how things are. We do sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and hope you will give us another try in the future!

by Brent L. - Verified user on May 26, 2020
The staff was great! Boat dock was in good shape and had ample amount of tie off points. Can't wait to come back!! After covid lockdown of coarse lol such crap!

by Tony O. on Oct 29, 2014
Full-service marina, real close to downtown Shelbyville. Slip owners are cool. Great fishing.

by Anna K. on Oct 29, 2014
I've been coming here for 10 years, it's the best business on Lake Shelbyville! I've rented houseboats and pontoon boats at reasonable prices. There is a floating Subway restaurant on the water next to the Gas Dock / Ship Store and I will buy party platters for my large group - easy. Lots of fun on the docks, too. Highly recommend! A+!!
