Rent A Boat


Blackburn's Resort guests may rent our pontoons and bass boats or our ski boat. We also have other fishing equipment available. Only 5 minutes away, scuba diving equipment and lessons are available. Lake Norfork's clear waters are ideal for water-skiing, swimming, scuba, or just plain cruising. At Blackburn's we provide you with, or help you arrange for all the equipment, leaving you to have fun on, under, or above the waters of Lake Norfork!

Our private dock is well protected in a sheltered cove, which also makes a great spot for swimming, kayaking and playing in the water. The dock is covered, illuminated, has charger outlets, security system and has two fish cleaning stations with water. It is about 1/3 of a mile down a nearly level road to our 18-stall dock depending on water level but is just over the hill from the resort. You can normally launch right next to our dock but if not you can launch at the paved launch near our dock. Both are good.


Have your own boat? Dock it at our well-lit dock with security system.  Folks staying at Blackburn's receive one free regular-sized boat stall per cabin rental (pontoon stalls and boats with towers are extra and extra stalls are based on availability). Our stalls can accomdate large or small boats and are several different sizes. No one size fits all.  We do not have boat stalls available for one night stays. Extra boat stalls are $20/day or $85/week. 

You must rent a cottage from Blackburn's to rent a boat. Corps Of Engineers Rule Not Mine. Dumb rule. No grills on any of our boats. No skiing or tubes behind any Bass boats or pontoon boats and they can not be out after dark. My rules. You can use our ski boat (three day minimum) for that or get one at a marina and do what you want with it.
