The LPYC had their 2nd annual Cheeseburgers in Paradise Party on the docks of Lake Palestine Marina. We had over 30+ members and guests attending, making this a very popular event. Even the weather and water cooperated for a change!
If you are serious about needing an uncovered slip for a sailboat or powerboat on Lake Palestine, now is the time to contact Lake Palestine Yacht Club and Lake Palestine Marina. The LPYC has been discussing with Lake Palestine Marina, and the Upper Neches River Authority to add up to 6 additional slips at the Lake Palestine Marina. But we need commitments from boat owners wanting slips to proceed. Below is a diagram showing the possible expansion, currently revised to offer 6 slips.
