New & Improved Lakewood South

In the early '80s, Lakewood continued its expansion with a sister marina for member use in Galveston. After purchasing a former bait camp in Offats Bayou, plans were underway for a destination marina that would furnish visitors with comfortable amenities as well as a  bathhouse and shaded picnic area. Today, after extensive renovations and improvements, the Lakewood South facility ornaments the Galveston coast as an exclusive oasis for members to enjoy.

Now offering expanded use of the covered, elevated space, the Lakewood South facility provides motor home hook-ups, improved electrical power to boat slips, ice machines, and outdoor grilling complete with charcoal.

The newly improved fire pit is primed and ready for marshmallow roasting and tall tales. There's plenty of comfortable outdoor seating throughout the facility, and an updated air-conditioned bathhouse for members to use. Plans are underway to provide mosquito control and eradicate nuisance burrs growing on the grounds. Climate-controlled shades beat the relentless Texas heat, while upgraded landscaping lines the convenient walkways installed throughout the dock, bathhouse, and pavilion areas.

Lakewood South Committee Chair Scott Covington understands the need for a home away from home to escape the daily grind. "No matter what, I still like getting ready for spring in my mind while sitting on the boat wishing and dreaming." There's no better place to hatch your plans for spring and summertime fun than a relaxing marina with all the comforts of home.

As a central location to the Galveston area, Lakewood South remains a popular destination for Lakewood cruisers. Weekend travelers can dock at the marina and explore the surrounding attractions at the Strand and Moody Gardens. When members aren't enjoying live music and potlucks aboard their boats, the dining options and local hot spots are limitless.

These days, the weather's warming into spring, and members look forward to getting together at Lakewood South for an outdoor shrimp boil in the sea breeze. Mickey Hobbs will provide live entertainment as guests take in the waterfront views and Lakewood hospitality. And just in case you bring along your competitive side, the horseshoes and frisbee games will be in full swing.

Many thanks to all the supporters and volunteers who put in countless hours making Lakewood South the remarkable amenity we get to enjoy today!
