Today I visited the Rollingview Marina which is located on Falls Lake in Durham (map of location below). You can rent boat slips at the marina or you can use a boat launch ramp at the location for a $5 fee. I beleive there are also campsites up in that area. Below are a few quick pictures of the Marina.

At the marina you will find everyting from fast boats....


To tiny boats...


This boat kind of reminds me of a Winnebago!


I didn't realize The Sheriff's Dept. had its own boat! I wonder what the dog is for?

Any idea of what they charge for a boat slip.
I sure would boat more if I didn't have to tow and launch
and load back up.

Beautiful photos, NRG!

I know I'm directionally challenged but I've been to Rollingview Marina many times and I had no idea it was in Durham!!!

Used to be that you could rent boats here but they changed that a few years ago. Too bad. It was great fun to rent a pontoon and hang out in the lake for a day! So much easier than buying your own boat!

As for the "winnebago", I always wanted a houseboat!!! Hubby said these "trailers" on a pontoon are not for him!!!

Nice! Do they have a place to dry dock boats there? We've been looking for a place to put ours on Falls or Jordan.

Yes, they have dry dock space available as well. The launch ramp at Rollingview itself is pretty bad from what I remember (down a dirt road, no dock after launch, etc.) but if you launch from Rollingview campground right around the corner from the marina the launch is very nice.
