Del and Terri Waggener purchased Lake Tyler Marina from the City of Tyler in the Spring of 2014 and formally took possession of the property the week following Memorial Day 2014 renaming it Lake Tyler Marina Resort ( below sometimes referred to as LTMR ).
Both Del and Terri grew up on and around Lake Tyler and when they learned that the marina had been closed in early 2014, realizing how important of a landmark the marina and associated RV park was to the area, decided it was an absolute necessity to get the marina and RV park back up and servicing the community and area visitors as soon as possible.
So… the doors were re-opened on May 22, 2014 and the beginning of a wonderful new adventure began! Little could Del and Terri have known just how much work was ahead of them and the new LTMR staff. Their journey began by giving the marina and RV park a much needed face lift, requiring a lot of painting, mowing, resurfacing roads, repairing piers, boat docks etc.
If you have not had the opportunity to visit Lake Tyler Marina Resort since the Waggeners have taken new ownership, you really owe it to yourself to come visit and check out the newly remodeled convenience store with a grill that is opened for breakfast and lunch. The store also has pretty much everything you’ll need to enjoy your time on the lake and RV park to include non-ethanol gasoline, fishing supplies and bait to include minnows, worms, livers, hearts, shrimp, and shad. You’ll also find a good number of RV related supplies should you forget anything or just need to re-supply.
The RV park is quite large with a good variety of 30 and 50 amp spots to include natural shade, big-rig friendly drive through, as well as spots for smaller campers and tents, with both water front and non-water front spaces available. There is also a laundry room and bath house on the premises.
The marina offers a wide, very comfortable boat launch experience and large parking lot to keep your vehicles and boat trailers. We also offer both covered and lifted or simply covered boat slips for short and long term boat storage. For those staying in the RV park or just visiting the area, LTMR also rents paddle boats to enjoy in a large bay with multiple islands breaking the wind typically making for smooth waters for a lot of paddle boating fun!
Great strides are being made daily by both LTMR staff and contractors to complete the current efforts of repairing and maintaining a very clean and well serviced marina and RV park to provide the best experience possible for visitors, both new and well known. Del and Terri have some wonderful expansion plans for the near future of Lake Tyler Marina Resort to include a recreation room, a full service restaurant and bar. They also plan to offer bicycle and golf cart rentals as well by the end of 2014.
We look forward to meeting you and will do our absolute best to make your stay and experiences at Lake Tyler Marina Resort as enjoyable and fun as we can.
See ya soon!
