Greetings from Scotty Yates Paradise Bay Dockmaster
Yes, we had another round of storms this year. A lot of units had flooding issues, and some had wind damage. Cleanup continues by our office, staff, maintenance crew, and a group of volunteers. We still have a way to go to get back to pre-storm status. The billing for the docks will be delayed a bit because the Dockmaster and Paradise Bay Office has experienced extra workload due to storm damage. Please be patient as you return to the park for the season.
Remember we had hurricane Idalia here with high tides which caused flooding, some park amenities might be interrupted from time to time
If your plans have changed for the 2024 season, and you do not plan to use your Paradise Bay dock, please let me know as soon as possible.
To maintain your Paradise Bay dock for the 2024 season you must submit your check, current boat registration, and Insurance.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
