Oasis Marinas Awarded Management Contract for Big Water Marina

We are happy to announce that Oasis Marinas has officially taken over operational management of Big Water Marina.

Oasis Marinas was founded by a group of boaters with executive expertise in hospitality and technology who are dedicated to creating a high-quality experience. The Oasis team understands the challenges that marina owners, slipholders, dockmasters, boaters, and campers face every day.


The Oasis Marinas portfolio is closing on nearly 40 amazing properties, 6,500 wet & dry slips under management, and hundreds of RV pads, spanning from the Northeast, the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac, down to the coast of Florida.


With the expansion of Big Water Marina amenities, boat rentals, additional slips, and live events, we are looking forward to applying our proven growth strategies and processes to create an even richer boating and camping experience for the current and future community. After owners Trey and Bryan Boggs reviewed what Kimley-Horn had factored into future expansion plans for the property, they reached out to Oasis to ensure these plans come to fruition. It is Oasis’ goal to not only execute on these plans but to exceed the original vision.

At Oasis, we believe that marinas and campgrounds provide the ultimate relaxing getaway for boaters and campers. We believe that every experience at Big Water should be awesome. That’s why, in addition to ensuring that the marina and campground are run efficiently and safely, it is our goal to create a fun, welcoming, and well-maintained environment.

About Big Water Marina

Big Water Marina is a self-service facility that provides an unspoiled oasis for all types of lake lovers. Located on the largest expanse of open water on Lake Hartwell, the marina is one of the most accessible spots for visitors to fully embrace the atmosphere of the lake — on and off the water. From storage to services, our team takes the work out of boating to offer a pleasant experience for guests from all over. Big Water Marina supports 150+ wet slips tucked in a well-protected cove to house boats safely through every season. Our technicians are highly trained to assist with a variety of services and repairs. We also cater to non-boaters with a selection of high-quality rentals, a full-service campground, and a tiki-style bar and grill (seasonal). Our boat and kayak rentals come equipped with all necessary safety gear and are available to rent for the full day or a half day, so you and your crew can explore the lake at your leisure.
