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. If you would like to be included in the campsite drawing for the 2020 season, please stop in the Marina office to sign up for the drawing before November.  One entry per household.​  The drawing date will be November 13th.  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.
