Buoy Reservation Details:

Opening date for the buoy field is May 12th, 2024. Buoy reservations will be accepted beginning April 1st, 2024 at midnight.

RPOA buoy rental fee is $100/week.

Weekly reservations run from 12:00 p.m. Sunday through 11:00 a.m. the following Sunday.

Buoy reservations will only be accepted for those members who are current on yearly dues and are in good standing with the association.


There will be one refundable change or cancellation per season/per household. After the one gratuitous change, all changes and cancellations will be non-refundable.


Buoy reservations are for members boats only and may only be used by Members.  As a non-profit entity, we risk losing our tax-exempt status if buoys are rented to non-members.


Buoy reservations are limited to one buoy per member during the first two weeks of July and August. Additional buoys may be requested for peak times but are not guaranteed until one week ahead of time.

It is the members’ responsibility to verify that your boat has been put on the proper buoy. If you have your boat delivered, please ensure that you provide specific and accurate delivery information.

If your boat is not on the proper buoy or is left on the buoy after your reservation period, it will result in a daily fee of $100 and your buoy requests for the following year will be assigned last. For any boat left on a buoy 1 week beyond the approved reservation, the RPOA reserves the right to remove your boat and will bill you for the cost.
