Seasonal and daily leasing


Subject to the Army Corps of Engineers regulations, Rathbun Marina is one of only a couple Corps marinas in the Midwest to offer campsites on a seasonal basis.  Our sites are selected by participation in a lottery in late fall of the prior season.  Please contact the office for the next lottery sign up date and for current availability. For 2017, the lottery was held and we still have several seasonal sites available.  If you would like to be included in the Campsite Drawing for the 2018 Season, PLEASE stop in the Marina Office to Sign up for the Drawing before November 9.  One Entry per Household.​  The Drawing date will be determined and posted on this website.   We reserve 25% of our campsites for short term rental to allow flexibility and opportunity for those that are juggling work and other family activities.  

Any outstanding balances have to be cleared before you may enter the drawing.
